Clothing was incredibly important in the 16th century because, at a time when the middle class was rising and upward mobility was available for the first time, your clothing could show who you were, how wealthy you were, what class you were, and all sorts of other things about you.
This episode looks at both the perfectly normal (woolen undergarments) and the bizarre (bejeweled furs).
