Cheating clothes waist line

From New Yorker:

A recent article in Esquire reports that many trousers are significantly more ample than the marked waist size. This is due to “vanity sizing.” The magazine collected a batch of pants by different manufacturers, all marked as having a thirty-six-inch waist. At H&M, they were actually thirty-seven inches; at Calvin Klein, thirty-eight and a half; at the Gap, thirty-nine; at Dockers, thirty-nine and a half; and, at Old Navy, forty-one.

This clears up my suspicion! Doesn’t this make online shopping a lot harder?

Best of blogshops

I saw this shop at Far East Plaza, Singapore. So now blogshops have an offline front too?

Traditionally physical stores become online stores, this is quite the reverse isn’t it. Blogshops are blogs that are selling items ranging from apparel to toys. They’re popular among younger Asians who are looking for a bargain and something unique. These shops transact money using bank accounts or in-person even. It’s kinda like a decentralized Craigslist.
