I know this blog is supposed to be about me, but yesterday evening was all about Stephen. He recently got a new job and with this new job came a new office dress code. Off to the store we went!
Shopping for men's clothes is always interesting to me. Why are they so much cheaper than women's clothes???? I mean really?! And they are sized so much better than women's clothes. For example: pants. The absolute most difficult article of clothes for me to find to fit. I have so few options - size 6 or 8 and Short, Regular or Long. Well of course I can only go with Long... but long to the people in the factory making my clothes don't really understand what LONG means... 32" inseam is NOT long people. I need a 35" or 36" if I want to wear any sort of heal on my shoe. For men, they have so many different size options. When will this make it to women's clothes?? I need options! I know, I know, some places have some really long pants... SOME places. Do you know how badly I want a pair of Citizen Jeans? Not long enough. Or to buy suit pants right off the rack... impossible. My only option is JCrew catalog for $200 a pair.
We were very successful last night for Stephen. He ended up with 7 or 8 polo shirts, 4 pairs of pants, a suit (a super hot suit) and new socks, boxers and undershirts. I wish I could have shopping trips like that! And just to note - his suit was less than one pair of pants for me.
