I would only shop in the men's department, so wouldn't have noticed ;)

It's just that women are more susceptible to stupid fads, so more of their clothing goes on clearance.

If I were to take a look at the amount of clothes which I own and compared that to the amount my OH owns it would probably be at a ratio of about 1:3.

There's just more of a range in women's departments. We have bags, purses, jewellery, tights, dresses, skirts, leggings, hair accessories, a wide range of different styles in shoes, tops...and so on. :)

Any man that's tried to buy anything in the "Xmas sales" knows there is no equality when it comes to sales.

These cavemen attitudes are so 1970's. For me, what the little lady wants, the little lady gets. If it helps make her pocket money go a bit further, everyone wins. :)

Mens fashion is basically the same every year and has been for over a century, little need to reduce it like they do for women.

Also, commonly men are much happier to wear something more than once, so I'd bet volume of clothing sales for women are far higher, so more produced.

Who cares. Has modern life and its many luxuries really became so dreary that people are claiming discrimination over limited clothing choice.
Why does everything come down to discrimination and racism.
Little woods don't stock any Burka's or Hijabs so does that mean they are discriminatory? No, they stock what they feel will make a profit.
Can't get over the amount of positive discrimination that is perpetuated in modern society on the pretence of perceived privilege but clothing choice isn't one of them.

Afraid this is the way of the shop culture these days. I was in peacocks with the wife - and all womens and childrens clothing was 20% off. I asked the woman on the till why mens wasn't included, and she diddnt know.

Also bugs me how every multi-gender clothes store (example: Primark) has a huge floor space area for womens clothing, and only one small corner for mens.
Women definitely have the upper hand when it comes to clothes shopping
#32
Yes men are discriminated against when it comes to clothes sales.
Women normally get a whole range of sizes, upto 90% off and rails and rails of stuff to pick through.

We normally end up with a range of 28" waist trousers with 33" legs, XS T-shirts, XXXL jumpers and flip flops. All with upto 30% off.
I'm all for equality but try the boot on the other foot. I find bargains on lots of stuff I buy, just not sodding clothes.

It is because men tend to know what they want, they know their sizes and will keep it for a long time, i.e shoes. Where as women haven't a clue what they want and like everything till they try it on. If they are a size 12 they will buy a size 8, 10, 12 and possibly a 14 just incase something has slipped, then send the lot back complaining that the clothes always look better on the models, hence why womens clothes have the best discount in sales as too much surplus and a lot of returns. it will be similar with kids clothes due to sizing.

Have you never heard of supply and demand op? Women demand more clothes, simple.

As a percentage of product range/stocked for men what % is on sale?! Same for womens, most department stores stock a lot more womens clothes then men so you would expect more to be on sale....maybe.
