I tried on a pair in 28", and they literally fell off my hips. I ended up buying the jeans in 26"! 26"! I haven't worn 26" since I was a child!ReplyDeletethose tricksSeptember 9, 2010 at 5:15 PMThis stuff frustrates me a bit.Obviously, necessary for selling, since this has been done in women's sizing forever.But I mean - if they are going to do that to men's clothes that actually list measurements, they should just shift to our inferior women's "sizing" using 2, 4, 6, etc. Our sizes shift so much, too.The fact I can ever squeeze into a 0, 2, or 4 ANYTHING is ridiculous.Especially when I try on vintage clothes and only fit into like 12/14.Or maybe misrepresenting sizing/measurements is just fine, makes us all feel better about ourselves - so who cares?I dunno.ReplyDeleteSarahSeptember 12, 2010 at 9:15 PMOld Navy is the worst! It's problematic that clothing companies keep profiting off of the belief of "smaller (percevied) size = better." It would be great if clothing sizes were accurate, and stores had tailors, and, while we're at it, if clothing was made in the U.S., and price indicated quality. Pardon me, I started daydreaming again.ReplyDeleteAdd commentLoad more... Post a Comment Hey there! Thanks for leaving a comment.
