Mentions of clothing in hamlet

My original thought, based on Parolles (who is described as having been “all clothes”) was of this order: “our unspoken thought is like a body, which we have little control over in the present, while our expressed thought is like our clothes, which we can much more easily adjust in a timely way” and I wanted to make a site like Plants, investigating various descriptions of attire and rooms (which seemed to me similar to attire) which however did not work out. This is a remnant of that effort.
