Off the Rack

There is one small pleasure in life I will probably never experience: pants that fit, off the rack.

Oh sure, most shirts do. But when you’re the same height as your co-Pingmaster (which is the same height at Neve Campbell,) it’s hard to find pants with the proper inseam. Which is why, of course, almost everything has to be hemmed.

Do you find that you can get clothes off the rack that fit just fine? Or do you have to do something fancy schmancy to make them work?

Rarely. When I do, I buy about six pairs.

Has anyone noticed that when you go to try on pants the first one always fits just right, however when you try the second pair even though it’s the exact same style, cut and size it just does not fits quit right. Either too tight in the ass or in the crotch or better yet you have to suck it in to do the pants or my favorite is when they don’t go past the thighs.

Rafael -- there's actually a good reason for that. When clothing is made in factories, great swaths of cloth are stacked on top of one another, and someone cuts down through the layers. It's pretty difficult to keep your knife/scissors completely straight cutting all the way down. So the stuff made from the layers at the bottom is generally bigger than the stuff from the top.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
