Yehuda personal things from weekly parsha

Question
please advise what is the hidden meanings of Yehuda personal belonings, seal, laces and stick?
Answer
One explanation is that Yehuda, in his negative actions, is degrading or parting with those 3 aspects, which he davka should have been protecting: the cirumcision is called "the seal" of the Jewish people, his staff represents the rulers' scepter of the future kings of Judah which will descend from him, and his "ptil"-the term used for tzitzit, that clothing which should have prevented him from promiscuous actions (see Minachot 44).
