Checked it out. Disappointed.

The information isn't terrible, but there are obvious spelling/typographical errors (it reads like poorly translated english in many parts) and the web design and coding is really poor. Those two things really irked me.

A great read for a quality 101




Great little site for beginners!

Forget about these nit-pickers going on about how the (HTML) coding is.

The site gives good information that will serve 96% of the male public,
who want to learn the basics.

The website is not great, if you want something along those lines, but rather better try "Dressing the man" by Alan Flusser. Plenty of people on here don't seem to like him, but the book is generally agreed to be pretty good.

Yea, but that site is FREE. I'm not saying it will make you into a bespoke tailor.

One of these on your clothes would be a bad sign of quality.
