Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Dress
 
  As the index tells the contents of the book, and directs to the particular chapter, even so do the outward habit and garments, in man or woman, give us a taste of the spirit, and point to the eternal quality of the soul; and there cannot be a more evident and gross manifestation of poor, degenerate, dunghill blood and breeding, than a rude, unpolished, disordered, and slovenly outside.
            —Philip Massinger
