Gah, clothing research. I have a really hard time with it because 1) there's contradictory info and 2) (the main problem, as there's contradictory info on everything) I don't care. I know it's important, I don't think it's some silly thing that doesn't matter, but I still can't care. Clothing is not one of my interests at all, whatever the time period. I like pretty colors and nice-feeling fabrics, but that's where it ends. And when I can't make myself care about something, I have a hell of a time keeping it in my brain.

The only thing I can think of to compare it to, history-wise, for my level of not-caring, is troop movements on the battlefield. But I don't have to think about that when writing historical romance. I kinda need to know something about clothing, though my books are still not going to satisfy people who love clothes porn. Though I do like jewelry, so I do dwell on that a little, so maybe that will make up for it.
ETA I think I know why this is an issue for me )
