I have looked at parts of it. Its mainly interesting in its promotion of wool and being well dressed. Three Cheers.

The only false advice is this:

"As for the world's best wool mills, they're in Italy (to be specific, the Biella region)."

Balderdash. Better wool is produced in the mills of Yorkshire (and more variety). Ever seen a good cheviot from Italy? They don't even know what it is.

All my cloth is from Yorkshire as a matter of fact. Though I have seen some lovely Italian wool. :)
