CHHS students discuss clothes, what they mean

Hannah Carlisle, Reporter

We interviewed two students, Ericka Cloutier and Joshua Harris on how they think clothes affect how they see others. Both are freshmen and have quite different ideas on the subject. Boys and girls tend to think of clothing differently, whether it’s their own or others.


Q- What type of clothing do you wear? Why?

E- Jeans and a t-shirt, because it’s easy and comfortable.

J- Whatever fits, because I’m a giant.


Q- What are the most common brands you see others wear?

E- Nike, Under Armor, Vans, Converse, Aftco.

J- I don’t know brands, but groups of people do dress similarly.


Q- Do you wear certain clothes for comfort or for vanity? Why?

E- Comfort; vanity requires time and effort that I am not willing to give up.

J- Comfort, because I’m a giant.


Q- Do you approach someone with clothes similar to yours or not? Why?

E- Yeah, because if we dress similarly then we probably both put value in other places than appearance.

J- I approach someone based on their facial expression, because clothes just hide people.


Q- What clothes (types, brands) do your friends wear?

E- Converse, sportswear, true grit, birkenstocks, jeans, and t-shirts.

J- Sweatpants, jeans leggings, t- shirts, sweatshirts, and hoodies.


Q- If there wasn’t a dress code, what would you wear? The same thing or something different? Why?

E- Pretty much the same, maybe some Nike shorts, but I’m fairly comfortable in what I wear everyday.

J- I’d have to come to school in a toga just once, but mostly the same thing, because I’m funny that way.
