They wore what?! By:Richard Platt

They wore what?! By Richard Platt was about what people wore from a long time ago,how it was made, and how people showed their wealthy through clothes. I think what they what they call fashion is very weird and funny. I think the tittle fix the book. I would recommend this book to people like fashion or wacky things.
