There are many different tailoring recipes available to craft for your pawns once you research Complex Clothing (and even more with the Noble Clothing and Royal Clothing options!), each requiring a differing amount of both labor and materials.
While both quality and material can affect the final value of the item, they're moot comparatively, assuming the quantity & time remain the same. (Do any clothing materials have work time adjustments? I know building furniture out of stone is slower than metal or wood)
There are two equally interesting maximums I'd like to consider (though they may be the same) --
- The tailoring recipe that maximizes profit / time
- The tailoring recipe that maximizes profit / material
What should I be making in order to most-quickly grow my burgeoning clothing franchise?
