8 A Final ThoughtThe fashion of the 60’s had much to do with what walk of life you were from. In the novel The Outsiders, Ponyboy and his friends wear clothing that makes them look “tuff” and does not cost them much money. The Socs can afford better clothing, such as blue madras shirts. Fashion played a part in how people treated you in a world like that of Ponyboy. Your clothing could enhance your personality or act as a shield for you to hide behind.
