Clothes Shopping

Today I got my first new pair of jeans in a few years.

This is actually quite a big achievement - I had to try six different pairs of different sizes and cuts before I could find one that fit me (and even now I'll probably have to wear a belt).

My problem? Thighs. Most people don't think I'm overweight. I am, but only slightly. But I've got 27 inch circumference thighs (each - I measured), and most trousers aren't designed for that. My last pair of jeans literally split down the leg, Incredible Hulk style.

Well, actually, that's not my problem. My problem is that trouser makers are inconsiderate. And yes, I know that in many ways women have it worse with standard sizes...

Oh yeah, and I'm going away for a few days, so don't expect any posts until late Sunday at the earliest...
