We all know about school and work dress codes — but what about the secret dress codes that people use to send signals about themselves in everyday life?
A recent Reddit thread asked, "What are some hidden dress codes people wear to identify themselves that you have to already know about to notice?" The responses come from all over the world and prove that a lot more goes into people's daily outfits than you might have thought.
Its an old sailors tradition to wear a golden earring. (Dont know if its just the netherlands or worldwide) but some of the mainly fishermen towns here have their own specific type of golden earring. So if you see a dutch guy wearing a big golden earring with a detailed design, you know he comes from a fishermen town.
