One of the chief features of Roman architecture is the columns that are evident in do many architectural forms. The Dorian column is simple and fluted without a prominent base. In comparing it to Roman clothing, you might say it is like the toga, which hangs in fluted drapes to the ground (for women and upper class men). The Dorian column has no capital top mount and togas are simple and without ornamentation at the shoulders.
