About legible clothing:

I couldn't trace the "Let that clapper" line to its source but according
to an article in the [online] _Philadelphia Inquirer_ the line is taken
from "a satirical etiquette book of the time." Maybe someone can track
it from there.

If you'd like to read the article, it's at
