Today, I’m wearing a blazer and pants: two articles of clothing that have served their purpose for men, largely unchanged, for over 100 years. Yet modern womenswear designers have rendered both of these timeless pieces completely dysfunctional by refusing to put in adequate storage compartments.
Why don’t my clothes have any pockets? I just walked into the bathroom with my phone and realized I had no place to put it. I didn’t want to set it on the sink (ew), so I ended up sticking it in my bra. Girls, we shouldn’t have to live like this.
I could get super feministy here and say the reason women’s clothes are still largely designed to be less substantial, less comfortable, and less functional then men’s is that the apparel industry is part of the PATRIARCHY MACHINE, man. The machine keeps us in place by keeping us dependent on men to hold all our shit while we pee. But that’s just a theory.
And my search for the perfect black blazer (with inside pockets) continues.
