Women, Fashion, and the Economy

Fashion is something that every woman (and, now, practically every man, too) is seemingly and expert in.  Your great Aunt Nancy knows exactly what Princess Kate wore on Tuesday and your Grandmother knows whats up with the mixing of leather and lace.

While this is, seemingly, a good thing, it also has some pretty serious repercussions.

Say you and your boyfriend do the same activity – hiking.  He, as a male, will pay (on average) $70 on a pair of hiking boots that will last up to 4 years of wear.  You, the woman, will have to pay approximately $130 on a cheaply-made pair that will last 1 to 2 years of wear.

Do you see the problem here?

I pay, on average, $25-$35 on a pair of cheap jeans while my brother can pay $20 for a pair of jeans that will last forever.

I will pay $15 for a t-shirt that the sun will still burn me through while my brother will pay $7 for one barbed wire has a difficult time penetrating.

Let’s talk about this in the comments below!
