I love reading anything about the history of fashion/apparel/textiles, so this was right up my alley. Tim covers various articles of clothing and footwear with their history and how these items evolved to where they are today. I knew some of the history (especially denim) but some other things were fascinating (like the suit). Now, as much as I love Tim, it does get a little boring in places because this is a sort of history book. But if you ever wanted to know the reason we wear what we wear, or how some articles of clothing came to be, then I recommend this book for sure.
