And Here We Thought Women’s Sizing Was Messed Up

Clothing sizing drives me insane because it gives designers a God-like upper hand in defining you. Helmut Lang likes to compliment me by allowing me to squeeze into a 2 from time to time, but Alexander Wang basically thinks I’m obese.

Apparently, there’s a huge discrepancy in the sizing of men’s pants, which often display a far smaller waist measurement than their actual measurement. An Esquire blogger made this handy chart to spell out just how honest and dishonest retailers are. The biggest liar: Old Navy, whose jeans (advertised for a 36-inch waist) physically measure five inches larger at 41 inches. We feel for you, dudes. [Esquire via Gawker] Keep reading »

No More Dinette Sets, “The Price Is Right” Now Features American Apparel


No more dinette sets or speedboats for TV game show “The Price is Right.” Now they’re featuring lots of American Apparel clothing for bidding games. How much would you bid on the selection? (We were pretty surprised to see how far-off our imaginary guess was.) Anyhow, we don’t know which to lament more—the downfall of American Apparel or of “The Price is Right.” We miss the days of Bob and Winnebago trailers. [YouTube] Keep reading »
