Note: Due to a technical difficulty, this episode was recorded in two different sessions. The listener will note a change in audio quality partway through this episode. 
 
In Dress Codes, law professor and cultural critic Richard Thompson Ford presents an insightful and entertaining history of the laws of fashion from the middle ages to the present day, a walk down history’s red carpet to uncover and examine the canons, mores, and customs of clothing—rules that we often take for granted. After reading Dress Codes, you’ll never think of fashion as superficial again—and getting dressed will never be the same.
 
Ford is in conversation with Skylight's own Lance Morgan.
