Hood.
 
’Tis not the hood that makes the monk (Cucul’lus non facit mon’achum). We must not be deceived by appearances, or take for granted that things and persons are what they seem to be.   1
       
“They should be good men; their affairs are righteous;
But all hoods make not monks.”
       
Shakespeare: Henry VIII., iii. 1.
