Actually, werent we saved from metzraim because we dressed “differently” from them?

Do you wear suits and ties?

In other words, we’re not (as I’m reading the discussion) discussing this from a Chukas HaGoyim counterpoint (since, otherwise, suits and ties would have to fall into the same discussion) but rather from a “what does this indicate about the person?” perspective.

And nonetheless, I *highly* doubt your average farmer, milkman, blacksmith back in the day worked in good slacks. They wore the functional equivalent of jeans today — clothes that were sturdy, comfortable to do physical labor in, and not fancy or overly nice – and I’ll bet they wore them even if their non-Jewish counterparts wore the same type of clothing.
