Ushikawa's clothes

He wore the same clothes he'd had on three days earlier. I could have been mistaken about that, but he wore the same kind of suit and shirt and necktie, all grimy and wrinkled and baggy. These disgraceful articles of clothing looked as if they had been forced to accept an unfair portion of the world's exhaustion and burdens. If, through some kind of reincarnation, it were possible to be reborn as Ushikawa's clothing, with a guarantee of rare glory in the next rebirth, I would still not want to do it.

—Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, p. 450

What can I say about that suit that hasn't already been said, about Afghanistan?

It looks bombed out and depleted.

—Silky Johnston (Dave Chappelle)
