Expensive by a country mile

1 No tags Permalink 0

As a dedicated Country Road shopper, I appreciate their clothes are quality and I don’t mind paying for it. What I do mind is the difference between the women’s and men’s cost of the clothes.

For example this Toast Check Pea Coat for women is $349.
While this Black Heavy Men’s jacket is a mere $199.

Am I having a totally blonde moment and missing something here? It doesn’t just apply to these 2 particular items. Myself and even my other half have noticed it through all the different collections and seasons.

Are they expecting that women will naturally spend more on clothes and therefore know they can charge more? They clearly haven’t spent enough time with my other half who doesn’t mind a nice piece of clothing here and there!

There are so many arguments around this little pet hate of mine, with the economy the way it is can we justify spending this sort of money of clothes, there’s the ongoing battle between what women and men earn, so if men typically earn more then why are women’s clothes so much more expensive.

Maybe you can enlighten me…..

I have to go shopping now!

    Ami, whilst my heart bleeds for the female population of the world, as a male addicted to nice clothes (as your other half is) i do not want to rock the boat when it comes to them for a reasonable rate. And think of it like this, in a hetrosexual relationship, at least one of you is getting a bargain. Think of the poor gay female couples, whom are both being ripped off.
