Equality is Best

In Utopia, maintaining equality is the goal for their society. No one strives to be better than their neighbor and indistinguishability is rewarded. Identical twin's outward appearance shows no differences between the two, which directly relates to how Utopia's society strives for. Utopians all dress in the same wool color cloth, so as not to stand out or look different. On page 80 it states, "As to their clothes, observe how little work is spent in them; while they are at labour they are clothed with leather and skins, cut carelessly about them, which will last seven years, and when they appear in public they put on an upper garment which hides the other; and these are all of one colour, and that is the natural colour of the wool."
