Quakers and clothes

I was reading Beppeblog, as I am wont to do. From there I found the Quaker blogs aggregator, QuakerQuaker. (Which makes me think of a meetinghouse themed Vegas casino.) From there I found a number of pages on plain clothing. One of these pages is called

Gohn Brothers, broadfalls, & men’s plain dress

Two thoughts. I got a Gohn Bros. pricesheet years ago, and was fasinated by the plain clothing. Not that I would wear broadfalls, but it is good to know they can still be gotten. Clothes really do set the tone for religious lives. But you know I feel that way. Interestingly, some new-plain Friends whose story I read also pointed out the ethical dimention of clothes buying: that Friends (and Christians) shouldn’t get clothes made in sweatshops.
