"Often, the less there is to justify a traditional custom, the harder it is to get rid of it."
"Sacred cows make the best hamburger."
"A crime persevered in a thousand centuries ceases to be a crime, and becomes a virtue. This is the law of custom, and custom supersedes all other forms of law."
And this would certainly explain how and why the dress of some Polish noblemen long ago has turned into unbreakable "law" for some frum groups.
