Yellow is the colour of the earth and of the middle; it is the symbol of that which is reliable and genuine. The lower garment is inconspicuously decorated - the symbol of aristocratic reserve.

A man's genuineness and refinement should not reveal themselves directly; they should express themselves only indirectly as an effect from within.
