Here are some home improvement priorities to help get you moving in the right direction.

The Costume Mistake You Missed In Home Improvement

In a typical “Home Improvement” episode, Tim Taylor wears two different sets of clothes: his casual, at-home wear, and his more formal, presentable outfit, for appearances on “Tool Time” with his co-host, Al Borland (Richard Karn). While the latter isn’t exactly anything to write home about, his leisurely duds have an interesting real-world story behind them.
