Females of tumblr
Please explain this
As a man the endless question of “why is this a thing?” Will never cease to plague me.
So it turns out women like comfortable clothes.
What? *gasp* but they always wear -
Nope. Here’s thing. First there were boyfriend jeans, lovely jeans that were loose rather than form fitting (unlike those slim jeans that are barely even jeans anymore). They’re comfy. They’re great. And they’re twice the price of us ladies going to the guys’ section and buying jeans that fit us there.
If we want a V-neck that’s not transparent, plunging, or tight in all the wrong places? We go buy a guy’s V-neck. So what does the fashion industry do? They market boyfriend shirts. The shirt that looks like you picked up sexily off the floor after your lovely night with your BF and said ‘hey…. I’m going to wear this now.’ Plus, now we don’t have the *shame* of shopping guys clothes… and we have the privilege of paying twice as much as we should!
So why is it a thing? Same as ‘girl pockets’ are a thing - money. You don’t need to ask the females of tumblr, because most of the time, we have no idea… men in suits somewhere decide what we’re going to wear and how they’re going to make a profit off of it. Ask them.
