In a couple places in the rulebook it says upgraded clothing is worth two VPs (p. 5 "double their value", p. 15 "Summer, Winter, and Leather Wear are each worth 2 VP") but the tiles themselves clearly show "2 1/2", including in the examples in the rulebook (see p. 11).

Which is correct?

Good Question, I really hope that the tiles are correct and the rule are misprinted. It makes sense that Winter and Leather Wear are worth more than Summer Wear. Don't you think?

The german rules say that you can craft clothes to "increase" the value of the material.

Page 15 of the German rules also says, "Zählt die Punkte auf euren Warenmarken zusammen. Für Ziegel, Leinen, Wollstoff und Leder bekommt ihr je 1 Punkt. Für Sommerkleidung bekommt ihr je 2 Punkte, für Winter- und Lederkleidung je 2½ Punkte."

Bricks, Linen, Woolen, and Leather: 1 point.
Summer Wear: 2 points.
Winter and Leather Wear: 2½ points.

This must have been a late change after I translated the rules. Of course, the tiles are correct.
