On a Claire Day (11/19/09)

This strip raises a good point. I’m not sure what fashion moguls are thinking, designing clothes that can reasonably fit little boys and then marketing them to grown women. Firing size four models for being “overweight.” Photoshopping magazine ads in an effort to make skin and bones seem attractive. It’s obviously gotten in the head of the woman in this strip, who complains of her “waist flab” despite being as thin as any character on the comics page. The whole scene makes me happy to be a male clothes shopper. Not only have I identified some favorite brands of shirts, pants, socks, etc, but it’s socially acceptable for me to refresh my wardrobe on a pretty infrequent basis.
