I have a handful of standards when it comes to shopping, and this is what happens when I do not stick to them!
Fond of saving money for the beautiful land and house we will be purchasing this year, I thought I could opt for something more affordable with a trusted brand I always thought was hit or miss. Scrolling through Asos is always full of surprises, and was my go-to many years ago. Specifically when I was nineteen and living alone. Nobody taught me about quality over quantity, and I went crazy a handful of times over this Spanish brand I found from the online shopping mecca.
Typically, Bershka’s sizing is quite exact and their trousers are on the tighter side. These trousers I ordered were not of a specialty size in ‘Tall’ or ‘Petite’. They were simply a ‘Regular’. I do not understand what exactly went wrong. It is especially difficult finding clothes that are of upstanding quality or even fit to their true size nowadays. I have no idea what is going on with the fit models, cheaply made factory designs, and whatever else is entailed in this wholesaling process of selling clothes to big brands lately.
I do not plan on shopping from Bershka, Asos, Zara, Mango, or from any of their sister companies again. As I am leaving my twenties, I am finding myself exhausted from the roller coaster of not knowing whether something will fit me properly or look good. It is a lot of time and effort shopping these days, and I am perfectly fine asking a tailor and or cutter to walk me through some good materials fit for my lifestyle these upcoming seasons.
Twenty-eight Springs in this year, I am finally understanding what comes with time, and what is worth spending on. Factory made trousers are a suck of the teeth this time around and forevermore.
Looking for something to wear day to day at the office and be taken seriously in, I ended up wearing clown pants.
Especially after trying these H&M double pleated babies that did not let me down in the same haul video.
These were obscenely long on the leg and wide on the waist. For a moment, I thought I could live off of this disappointment to tide me over before receiving a pair of bespoke trousers, but I simply could not.
The distance of my satisfaction from these trousers were a ways away, and these were sent back after a few days of serious consideration.
Otherwise, I will keep on for the search of the perfect pair of navy double pleated trousers. I think I will end up having to commission a bespoke pair. What do you think? Do you prefer a pair of trousers that are loose or a bit tighter to cinch your waist in? I would love to know your thoughts in the comments below. It is always a pleasure to hear from my wonderful readers!
