I have located the panel. The quote is pretty close.
Walt Kelly, The Pogo Sunday Parade, page 125
(which just happened to be the
penultimate page in the
fifth book I went through.)
I have to agree with Albert. "Clothes make the man" has always seemed to me to be an oversimplification, and perhaps a bit of wishful thinking on the part of a homely but well-heeled man. You got it, or your don't. Right, Albert?
Anyway, one of my favorite quotes with regard to style is from Alexander Pope. "Be not the first by whom the new are tried, Nor yet the last to lay the old aside." (An Essay on Criticism) I think this applies to the sartorial as well as to the literary.
