When you practice this principle, you’ll find that both your respect for yourself and the respect of others for you will zoom upward. And you’ll find you’re actually ahead money wise when you pay twice as much and buy half as many because:
- Your garments will last more than twice as long because they are more than twice as good, and as a rule they will show “quality” as long as they last.
- What you buy will stay in style longer. Better clothing always does.
- You’ll get better advice. Merchants selling $200 suits are usually much more interested in help you find the garment that is “just right” for you than are merchants selling $100 suits.
You are what you think you are. If your appearance makes you think you’re inferior, you are inferior. If it makes you chink small, you are small. Look your best and you will think and act your best.
