Costume is a grand tradition of putting on the things we love which bring back cultural memories; Me and my suits. Fashion, on the other hand, is a way of fitting in on a level that helps you associate with peers that may have their own social costume that pulls them into their lineal circle, but may not help them be part of your group of peers that isn’t connected to your cultural memories. I could wear more hooded sweatshirts with zippers in the colder months. Social Status. What do you think?
