Re: Dress to Impress

I'm autistic, so "dress to impress" means less than fuck all to me. Who am I supposed to be impressing? Why am I impressing them? What is the goal of impressing these putative people? Which definition of "impress" is relevant?

On a different but related point, why does what you wear matter? Seriously, it is a cypher I cannot decrypt - the wrapper doesn't define the person, and "dress to impress" seems to be telling me that lying is okay - why should I be comfortable about that?
