Why is it that if the average woman is 5’4″, most standard inseams are 32″? I realize that a lot of women wear boots or shoes with high heels, but many others wear flats, sneakers or other footwear without the heel. We’re lucky here in that we have several stores with “petite” clothing; however, we pay dearly for it! I much prefer shopping in the States, with its broader range of choices and lower prices, but that’s an other post all together 🙂
Another gripe of mine is the price of men’s vs. women’s jeans. Jeans are a staple in the majority of people’s wardrobes, so I figure that they are a good benchmark for prices. I went shopping with someone for jeans, and he was able to find a brand that fits him and that looks good at a cost of $8.97!!! Try finding prices like that in the ladies’ department…if we get well-fitting jeans for maybe $19.99, we’ve made out very well.
Hopefully I will have more to say on this subject in a few months…my new year starts on 10 January, and I plan on continuing what I started almost 6 years ago. Stay tuned! 🙂
