edit Pocket envy
You write in your userspace that you have just found "that men's pants have deeper pockets than women's pants. I am envious." A remedy is to pay $12 at Walmart. It should be perfect if you are contemplating having your cellphone fall out.17:37 10-Aug-16
- Mens pants are also longer than womens pants, and I am only 5'4", and a womens size 24-26 in pants. So unfortunately, anything with a 28" inseam (which is my inseam size) would probably not have a big enough waist or hip size, except at a mens big and tall store(which I just visited last weekend with my hubby when he needed new pants and shorts. They charge about $40-50 per pair of pants, but I suppose that is better than the $40 to 70 I usually pay for my work pants. (Men aren't known for large bootys, as I learned several years ago when I saw a utilikilt (in bright orange camo) I wanted at a Seattle store. They still have a store online at utilikilts.com if you feel like looking it up - most of their color choices are more traditional.) -- 17:59, August 10, 2016 (UTC) PS - Walmart usually charges about $25 for my size in dress pants when I find a pair that fits there.
It is a continuing annoyance that most menswear stores assume that any man with a 29" inseam is not simply small but has a waist of 36" to 40", perhaps to compensate. Regarding Utilikilts, in my personal life I am giving the LGBT fad a pass, likewise camouflage.19:10 10-Aug-16
- Utilikilts are actually designed for men, they are traditional Scottish attire. They took it one step further by making the kilt equivalent of cargo pants. (Too bad nobody makes a cargo skirt for women.) Indeed, if most mens stores sold waist 48-50 inches with a 26 inch inseam, my hubby would be happy, and so would I since we would be saving $$ on tailoring costs. -- 20:40, August 10, 2016 (UTC)
I know what kilts are; however, for me they would merely be transvestism. I don't have tailoring costs; I have scissoring-and-gluing costs when stuff needs to be hemmed up.03:52 11-Aug-16
edit Roller derby
Thanks for reading some of my stuff and for adding links on multiple occasions.
Regarding your call for an article on Roller derby, I took up a previous one (Ironman Triathlon) and really ought to do this too; my college-summer baseball season has just ended, leaving me on the sidelines for amateur football in the Odin Lloyd division of the Aaron Hernandez Football League. You would have read my Manchester, New Hampshire, which reflects Wikipedia that the city has two women's roller derby teams in different leagues; I've read a human-interest article on one of them, but have never gone to a game, which is a problem. And then of course write an Uncyclopedia article, unless someone beats me to it. 00:41 15-Aug-16
- Yes, in fact I was reading the Manchester, New Hampshire article to decide whether to vote for it on VFH. Unfortunately, I know nothing much about Manchester, New Hampshire to compare the article to, but it looks well-written. A belated thanks for doing Ironman Triathlon, too. I've never gone to a roller derby game either, but I've seen clips from them on TV and YouTube. -- 01:59, August 15, 2016 (UTC)
