    How is it misogyny? They're attacking men when they do this. And the fact men can't really defend themselves when this happens without some moron shouting misogynist makes it even more misandrist.

    I buy men's and boys clothing. Usually cheaper. Only once have I had a clerk give me and weird reactions. Men and boys shirts usually have cuts and colors I prefer.

    I was very frustrates in the end of the 00s because could never find jeans that didn't have rhinestones or flower patches on the butt.

    I know this is a total first world problem but I'm always bugged that the color of womens' clothes in outdoor gear is always these bright bold shades of pink, turquoise, green, red... I like more subdued earthy colors, which are the colors the mens' clothes come in, but the small is usually pretty baggy on me.

    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    I don't think gromit was claiming misogyny. More just frustration that vendors think that most women want pink and purple hiking gear (and tht men dont).

    Think about it from a marketing standpoint with limited funds.

    You can't afford to make umpteen million different versions of a product, so in an effort to use your dollars most wisely, you target the largest market segments.

    The markets for guys gear colored dark green, blue, brown, black etc.. is larger than the guys wanting pink market.

    The girls wanting pink market is larger than the girls wanting brown market.

    It's a simple question of limited funds, and the most effective markets.
