Can Someone Explain …
Why do manufacturers skip over the size 9 for children?
Seriously, look at The Gap and search by size. Where’d the 9 go? And Old Navy? Same thing. It’s not just those retailers either. The chart on the this page? That’s from Garnett Hill. There IS no size 9 for kids there either. Why is this?
I can deal with this size 9 thing when it comes to tops. Boys tend to like their shirts and tees to be big. However, I think the age of nine is a little young for the jeans falling down look with the boxers sticking out. Not sure I can even handle that look when he’s seventeen This is my personal opinion, however. I realize some of you may like that look for your third graders.
With a size 8, the length is too short for mylittle boy-wonder. A 10, the waist is too large.
I get that the age of nine is kinda ordinary as far as childhood goes. They’re pretty much set into a routine with homework and activities. The hormones are still tame and they’ve got a hint of independence. And as far as parenting….a nice little breather on the stress factor. But still…they still need to wear clothing.
Where are the size 9 pants?
