It’s so surprising how people choose to follow the dress pattern of someone they consider to be a mentor or a leader. It might not be wrong, but it is only valid if the leader knows how to dress appropriately. There are some leaders who feel that because their influences are far reaching, what they wear has little or nothing to do with their public acceptance. A local congregation had a leader whose influence was so visible to the extent that most followers chose to copy his dress pattern. They didn’t even care to know if his dress pattern suit them or not, they just wanted to appear like their leader.
