I'm going to get my male friend to bring in my dry cleaning and have him tell them it's his clothes (exception with dresses, or course.)
Please let me know the outcome; I'd be curious.

Ihate buying women's jeans. You can get men's jeans in any combination of waist size / leg length. 50" waist and 28" leg is possible.

For women, if your waist is more than 32", you must be at least 6 feet tall. so yeah, they came out with "petite" sizing - supposedly for smaller stature women. Apparently "petite" women don't come in sizes over 10.

Oh geez, don't get me started on sizing. I have clothes in my closet that peg me as an 8, 10, 12, 14 and 15!

If I have to spend all the time figuring out what size I am, how much it will cost me to have my pants altered, and whether I qualify as 'petite' or just plan abnormal - I am certainly not buying anything that I have to have dry cleaned.

Can't remember...they used to play it on Rock 101 from time to time. Maybe I can find it on Morpheus.

But I did find a link to "the man song"! Women would find this one amusing.

Supertwink, much as I hate to come out sounding like an advertisement for Levi's, but I have found "the Levi's store" a good place to buy jeans. Somebody at Levi's must've clued in that not all women are 6 feet tall, and they actually sell women's jeans in different lengths within sizes. So - get this - you can wear your jeans immediately without the hassle and expense of alterations.
The service was good in there too. I managed to get in and out of the store in 10 minutes with a pair of jeans that fit properly.

LOL as long the your last 60 or so posts weren't all about Levi's I think you'll be okay...

Interesting - I was actually talking about Levi's! I can't find a 30" leg anywhere, including the Levi's store. Including my last pair, purchased 1 month ago at said store!

But hey, I'd rather wear fleece ...

I am looking up your physical address from your IP address superTwink. Soon a pair of "fashion police" will be dispatched to your house to investigate your closet. Anyone who admits to still wearing fleece may be guilty of other alpine fashion faux pas such as the dreaded shorts-over-polypro look. We have a nice cell in the reeducation camp available should you choose to voluntarily surrender
