A Final Thought
• The 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
