Size Deflation

I have heard some female friends complain for years about size deflation. Store to store size X was getting larger and larger, sometimes to the point where size X-4 was the same as size X of years past. I listened, as it is the male job to do. As I listened I wondered at the silliness of the female size system altogether.

Well, size deflation has arrived for men's clothing now. Without loosing weight or thinning out I am a size smaller now, for shirts that is. Men can still rest assured that the waist and instep measures of men's pants are still in inches. But a L of old is an M now. That is certain.
