To be updated later.
I have a google alert set for vanity sizing to keep abreast of all the abject silliness entries posted across the web. When I find something particularly egregious, I leave a rebuttal. It has become increasingly difficult to monitor responses and sometimes my comments are deleted because they don’t conform to the blogger’s preconceived notions and confirmation bias. So, I’ve decided to post those here and leave a link to given sites in question.
I plan to post entries detailing all of the considerable research I’ve done on this topic as time permits. Most of that can be found here.
I have worked in the garment industry as a pattern maker for nearly three decades. There is no other party who is more authoritative on the subject of sizing than a pattern maker. Funny then that journalists and academics rarely consult with them.
