Does the clothes make the man or does the man make the clothes?

This old saying has always intrigued me.

Thanks!

Some rum first questions tonight!

Not sure why you came here to ask this but in your case it is surely your skills as a pianist that maketh you?

The piano does maketh who I am. I live to play and not play to live.

Thus, I wonder how the old saying of 'the clothes makes the man' falls into with those who are more fashion educated and sophisticated.

The man who makes the clothes is sometimes a tailor, or perhaps someone else involved in apparel manufacturing.
