    Old Grimes is dead, that good old man,
    We ne'er shall see him more;
    He used to wear a long black coat
    All button'd down before.

Doe more bewitch me than when art
Is too precise in every part.

Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy,
But not expressed in fancy; rich, not gaudy,
For the apparel oft proclaims the man,
And they in France of the best rank and station
Are of a most select and generous chief in that.

The dress they wore in the Golden Age
Would seem in the Age of Gold.
