everything is looked at from the yarmulkah to the shoes. You, as a Jew, are a walking role-model and therefore have to always dress appropriately. You don't necessarily realize but ppl look at you wherever you are. Furthermore, you won't see a gadol hador wearing a leather yarmulka, nor a really "modern guy" with tzitzis. So no clothes don't make you jewish, but it definately says what type of jew you are and Who you represent.

clothes have some importance
1) Rav Leff has said that the hebrew word for clothing is בגד-which also spell betray or rebel. The power of clothes is building or breaking, like today with the styles it isn't what they were intended to do. On the contrary a king has beautiful & regal clothes which portray his importance.
2) Ramban(Nachmonidies) says clothes make the man.
In summary clothes have a purpose and should not be mistreated. With this we should not judge a person just by appearance as the Mishna in Pirkei Avos tell us but what is inside. Also clothing can play a role in knowing the backround of a person but not telling the whole picture until we get to know them!!
These are funny, it gives a good laugh as well as thought provoking.
