Khalil Gibran- Clothes

One of my favorites, you'll be hearing much more from him. From The Prophet.

Your clothes conceal much of your beauty, yet they hide not the unbeautiful.
And though you seek in garments the freedom of privacy you may find in them a harness and a chain.
Would that you could meet the sun and the wind with more of your skin and less of your raiment,
For the breath of life is in the sunlight and the hand of life is in the wind.
Forget not that modesty is for a shield against the eye of the unclean.
And when the unclean shall be no more, 
what were modesty but a fetter and a fouling of the mind?
And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
