18 cm for $16

Last Friday, Laurent and I went to DFO (Direct Factory Outlet) for some shopping. DFO is one of the warehouse like store, with discounts on most off-season or excess supply items. (To Don: Antony is poor.) Anyhow, I bought a pair of smart causal trousers from Tarocash under heavy discount. (To Don: Antony is poor.) How do I know it was heavy discount, because I remember that pair of trousers, they tried to sell me that one about a year ago (at full price), and I did not get it.

So, I got a pair of trousers, but the problem: they were all designed for people like white tall Americans. Yep, before I can wear it, I had to get the trousers altered. The cloth alternation cost me $16 for removing 18 cm of the trousers. Well, can't do much, I am not as tall as those tall white Caucasians.

And to Don: we don't have a sewing machine, and we can't do that ourselves.

Pretty lame post Mr Shen. That's what iron-on hemming tape is for, measure, cut, fold, iron on the tape, Viola!

You missed out the point. trousers are designed for tall white Caucasians, sort of racist.
You can't sew them properly without a sewing machine. Don't tell me that you are too cheap to get the trousers properly altered.
And, no, I've never heard of "iron-on hemming tape". But it sounds like a good idea to try next time.

We are the same height, and I have no problem finding pants that fit length-wise.

All trousers, jeans or pants in my waist size are made only for men of 1.9m height and above!!

Thank you Rev. Dr. Wu Yi,
And if you look carefully, most of the good looking trousers, jeans or pants are styled for tall white caucasians.
