Fashion is just one of the many ways colonialism forces the adoption of customs that are maladapted to local conditions, but it is visible and emblematic. The British made their Indian subjects wear wool to turn it into a market for their wool products. Wool. In India. One would scream with laughter at the absurdity of it, except wool suits are still considered the height of class around the world despite the fact that it is highly unsuited (sorry) to most climates. Most of the world's population doesn't live in a cool Western European climate, but men are still supposed to fit themselves into boxy wool outfits in order to be taken seriously? What kind of sense does that make?
