Rule 47 says, "Don't trust a man wearing a better suit than you."

What do you think Rule 47 means and is there anything to it or is it totally offbase? Why?

Sounds like one of those "anyone wealthier than you is a greedy fuck with no morals" type of sentimentalities.

It's silly advice most likely coming from a political leftist. It assumes that wealth creates evil which can be turned quite easily (lack of wealth creates evil).

No, people should not immediately trust nor distrust someone based on their clothing unless of course they're wearing human body parts or something as extreme.

As you previously mentioned, the "clothing" can be metaphor for wealth or economic status. As the rules pertain to acquisition, how would you interpret the meaning and the advice Rule 47 is giving in that sense?
