This just in from an ‘inside source’. Banana Republic apparently hired a new designer for this season’s women’s offerings and this is the reason for the recently experienced fitting irregularities. The cute red jacket in the photo above is cut for a man. A linebacker style man. My source also indicates that the variations in trouser cuts were apparently quite alarming, and returns of ill-fitting garments are well ahead of the typical ratios.
Perhaps my rant from earlier this month was on the money after after all, and I now feel silly for retracting it. I feel downright vindicated.
