Well, my friends and I were talking about this and the sides were pretty equal...So do you think that larger sized clothes should cost more than the exact same one in a smaller size? Personally, I think that would be unfair and the cost probably comes more from labor than the small difference of cloth used between the sizes..Thoughts?
#2
TL;DR: My friend is fat and I'm skinny. His clothes cost the same as mine. Shouldn't I be saving like 30 cents? Or atleast him losing 30 cents?

more fabric = more costs for producer = more costs for consumer

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

What would be unfair is having to see fat people wearing clothes that are too small. As if that's not a problem already.

But nah, I'm sure that markups cover any extra expenses and for the smaller clothes that would just mean a bigger profit margin for both manufacturer and retailer.

Supply and demand. There's a reason why 60 watt light bulbs are more expensive than say, a 70 watt bulb.

Considering for much larger sizes, yeah, they do cost more, your point has a point of being invalid.


But I for one wouldn't care if an extra 30 cents were to be taken off. Is it REALLY that big of a problem?

Unless you're buying clothes EVERY week, I doubt it's that much of a problem.

We don't pay for the actual "clothes" anymore. We pay for labor/flashy brand names/ how it'll help us fit in.
So no.

Of course not. Smaller sizes should cost less.

Sorry to break this to you but they're the supply and demand curves; not the caring and equality curves.

Sometimes when companies release a new mp3 player or whatever it costs them literally nothing in production costs between a 30g storage and 60g storage version. The 60g model only costs 1/3 more because that's what people are willing to pay extra.

It's really up to the company that makes them. As has been mentioned, the cost of clothes has little to do with the actual cost of production, and everything to do with the marketing. I have two daughters so I know I'm pretty pissed off when a $3 t shirt costs $50 because of the logo, I doubt size pricing would save me a bundle.
#15
Should? Probably not. I don't see a problem if they decide to though.

Yes, it costs more to make them. It's just like of how bigger shoes cost a lot more than regular shoes.

No. Some people prefer larger sizes because they like their clothes to fit looser. Should they have to pay more to feel comfortable with what they are wearing?

Yeah, but you can get rather large sizes without paying extra.


What size clothes would cost more? I mean where do you cut it off at?
#18
some places already do that, i went to a concert and one of the shirts there was $30 for a medium and $45 for a large and of course i gave in and spent the extra $15 but thats because i'm an idiot

Fatties' clothes cost the same as skinny people's clothes.

I doubt that clothes costs much to produce really, the brand kinda shoots the price up in the air. So my doubts going to the fact that the clothes company loses money if the bigger clothes costs the same.

The clothes you buy all have added value. The small clothes could cost very little to make, but they add value to the cost to make it appear that it's worth more. With the big clothes they juts add less and make it look like they're giving you a good deal by not paying more for larger clothes.

Maybe the skinny people need to stop wearing so many clothes?


Wut, i'm saying that smaller clothes use less fabric so it would make sense to make them cheaper.
As a company i wouldn't do it, but if i was forced to decide i think it's pretty reasonable.
And since when do skinny people wear more clothes than fat people?

EDIT:
I think it's the same with the airplane thing, if they make it impossible for someone to sit next to them comfortably i think they should be charged extra. (except if they have a disease of some sorts ofcourse)

Well, i think the plan is okay, but i also think that if they don't have a disease it's their own problem and it's not up to us to make it fair

But then again, i have no idea if your post was serious
