“For my own part,” says St. François de Sales, quoted by Lesetre, “I should wish any devout man or woman always to be the best-dressed person in the company, but at the same time, the least fine and affected, and adorned, as it is said, with the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit. St. Louis said that every one ought to dress according to his position, so that good and sensible people should not be able to say you are overdressed, nor the younger under-dressed” (‘Vie Devot.,’ iii. 25).
