I love the Native American uniform. Can't think what the white horizontal pieces are on the breastplate area. Were those quills from the center of an eagle feather or something else? They're too slim to be the quills from a porcupine.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

The breastplates are made of bone, usually from Deer or buffalo. They were honed down into a bead like shape and strung along the breast area to deflect any random weapon flailing around during battle battle. Women and men wore them and each made his/her own and each also has a personal, spiritual attachment to them.

You're in a sad state of shape when you can't fit into the fitting room.

The Greeks have always been known for their fashionable clothing tastes.

That's terrifying! I'm scared shitless.
