Fair trade and ethical buying within the clothing industry

In the eighteenth century what dictated how people lived and interacted with one another was their place in society, both economically and socially, and this was greatly dependent on what they wore. Starting at about the mid 1800's, fashion and clothing were not the primary ways to define oneself. People's identity and role in life were mainly based on their personal beliefs. For men, clothing was not of any significance and certainly didn't occupy their minds or passions.
