Women's sizes in jeans compared to inches of men?
I wear 29" jeans, but can wear a couple of inches smaller but rarely ever see a 28" or 27" in mens. But I always found it weird that men have inches for jeans whereas women have 'sizes'. So in womens sizes I am a 6 or 8. I was just wondering why women don't just have inches like men. Or why men don't just have sizes like women?
Womens waists are 3 inches higher than mens, or so I have heard, especially when getting measurements. Kind of as depicted on this page:
And mentioned on that page, depending on the manufacturer the jean size can be +/- 1 or 2 inches in the waist and +/- 1 inch in length.
Here is a nice chart list of various sizes:
And here is a page that talks about converting from womens jeans to mens, it also had a shoe conversion as well:
Add 21 to the womens size jean to get the mens inches jean.
If you wear a ladies size 12 jean you would try a men's size 33" waist. 12+21=33"
For shoes, to convert a women's size to a men's size subtract 1 1/2 sizes from the ladies. So a size 9 1/2 in women's would be an 8 in a men's.
So what do yall think about this?
and which would you prefer?
This question has a poll!
