I like this saying from one point of view and somewhat agree from the other point of view. The literal translation is the robe does not make the monk:

1. Even if you dress up and physically appear as an academic, etc that does not make you one. I like this one.

2.It is not the outer perception that makes you who you are. While it is extremely true I still think for practical social reasons it is good to try to match it up. Ex, I tell my soon not to go asking for a job in a hoodie and jeans, to try to match up his upbringing and his educational background at least for a job interview (maybe that is too old fashion, not post-modernistic at all)

The picture of my mom and Robin Hood's friar was taken in Main Street US, Magic Kindom, Orlando, Florida in 2003.
