I don’t really like shopping for clothes for some strange reason. It is mainly due to laziness I guess. I am just lazy to go and walk and walk around the whole shopping mall to find clothes.
My girlfriend would bring me to clothes stalls and she’d be browsing the collections of men clothes. Apparently men’s clothes didn’t seem entertaining enough. At moments of time, I got bored and felt sleepy after going to one stall to another, one street to another and so on.
(How men and women would buy a pair of pants. I don’t know who drew this diagram, but it’s not me.)
Women on the other hand have lots of patience for that it seems. I’m sorry if I stereotype the whole gender, but let’s just say, generally, women visit so many stalls to choose for the clothes that they like.
Well, I mean, at the end of the trip, women chose something nice and that made her really happy which is good. Men, on the other hand, spend lesser time, and what made them really happy is to get done with the shopping and move on to something else, like a console game at home.
But what actually caused men to not like to shop? It’s the variety. Women have more clothes on display while men have lesser generally. Take a look at our shopping centres, how many shops are actually dedicated for the males? Mosts dedicate to both genders or just women.
Furthermore, women’s clothes have more variety. A button here, a lace pattern there, a just-for-decoration pocket on the pants. Men’s clothes are simpler in a way.
But men don’t hate shopping. You put them in Sim Lim Square (computer hardware heaven) or Borders (book heaven) and they can spend hours there. Especially Sim Lim Square, I have friends who goes there every fortnight and returns back with something new all the time it seems.
[I can't find an image of Sim Lim Square, I actually thought I have one to show you guys. I found one for Borders that I took some time back though.]
