When looking for clothes, be unisex if you can. Women can wear most male styles nowadays and masculine clothing is much better made. In the old days, I wore guys' Levis 501's before they made them especially for women, and my first jeans jacket was a boy's size! More recently, I got a really good deal on an embroidered men's muslin shirt. I can wear it as a tunic, with the sleeves rolled up (you might want to alter the sleeves if you are particular) and with the girly PINK embroidery, it's really nice. After getting it, I went into a specialty fashion store and saw one very similar, with embroidery and the same tucks in the front for $150! (Mine was $12.)

You are so right about men's slacks/jeans being made so much better. I wonder why? At least men's robes also have two pockets instead of one for all the one-armed women who shop for them, right? lol
I LOVE the deep pockets in most men's garments, but I can't find that many things that are attractive to me as a woman, AND, my religion specifically states that women are not to wear men's clothing.
Likely the same men who design men's clothing also
design the pointed toed, highest heels for women?
I think they should have to wear them for several years, don't you? lol God bless you. : )
I think they are better made because when a man finds a pair/cut he likes, he will buy the same brand and cut again and again. Most women like a bigger variety in style and don't mind shopping. So manufacturers cut quality based on the idea that women will be back for a different look.
