As long as people aren't dressing slutty, I don't care.

I've known people that wore sunglasses inside because they had migraines and the indoor lighting set them off. So, I typically think someone wearing sunglasses inside is doing so because the light bothers them, or that they didn't bother removing them when they came in, for whatever reason. But, yes, how you dress is a big part of how you present yourself. You shouldn't be surprised when someone infers what type of person you are from how you dress.

Migraines were the reason I wore glacier glasses all through college, because I was so sensitive to the light. But it certainly caused a lot of people to make wrong assumptions about me.

I think I still have my pair of Swiss Army glacier glasses around somewhere...

At this point, it's better to never go outside to begin with.

First impulse for people is to judge, right? So you might make automatic assumptions about a person when you first see them because of the way they presented themselves. It doesn't really matter most of the time because you probably won't ever see them again and will never think of them again. But if it's someone you're gonna have to talk to, I'm sure you'll find out if whatever judgement you made was correct. In the end, if you just don't say anything out loud, it probably doesn't matter.

"The clothes make the man," can be traced back as far as Shakespeare's time.

Henri Duvernois wrote a short story, The Clothes Make the Man, about a criminal who wears a police uniform to ease a break in and ends up behaving more like a police officer than like a crook. http://www.valorchristian.org/devnet/data/databases/valorteachweb_01/widgets/class_resource_documents/00/00/01/65/pdf/original.pdf and Mark Twain quipped that, "Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society."

In Psychology Today they discuss the fact that what you wear doesn't just influence the people around you - it can actually have an effect on your own perception of yourself. https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/brain-babble/201208/clothes-make-the-man-literally

I doubt you're going to change a few centuries worth of thinking overnight.

Well that's true i just think we shouldn't judge on first impressions alone though i mean an impression is an impression the logical thing is to keep that in mind but find out how they truly are first.

Atleast that's how i think and go about judging people.

Its a natural reaction.
I mean if someone looks dodgy then you're more careful around them,
but I'm not talking about people who judge too much, I'm just talking about the first impressions everyone gets no matter what (it's impossible to not get first impressions).
