Passing Thoughts : Weighing In On Material Values

It’s just me thinking out loud, but while glancing at the label of a pair of shorts recently, I started thinking about how I have shorts stored away that are smaller sizes, and that led my mind to wonder why a pair of size 30 shorts are priced the same as a pair of size 40. Ultimately, there’s a good deal more fabric used in the larger sizes, right? So does this mean that the price is averaged out, and that sales of size 30’s net greater profits then sales of size 40’s? And what’d be the consequences if clothing costs went up along with sizes? Would having to pay a few extra bucks for the added material needed to cover one’s fat ass be enough motivation to hit the gym whittle down a size or two?

  1. This is exactly what they mean when they talk about the “cost of obesity”!

    I did find it interesting when shopping for a leather motorcycle jacket. There was a price difference between the sizes. Makes sense to me.
