For women, shopping is like talking. To go shopping does not have to mean you have a necessity for it or a purpose, you can go anywhere and at any time, and you can even be there for a few hours. Most persons don’t have a specific purpose in mind. Women think of shopping as of a thing than makes them younger and happier, even if in the end they just look and buy nothing. This rather chaotic way to shop would most probably cause a cerebral accident to any man in less than 20 minutes.
In order to feel right, the man needs an objective, a goal, a pre-settled program. He is the one hunting for lunch after all, that is his mission. He wants to “catch” something fast to bring home.
When shopping, most men begin to feel frustrated and anxious in a clothes store, while women try on clothes after clothes, wait for the man’s opinions and end up buying nothing. Women love to try on clothes, as many as possible, because this thing corresponds to a mental typology – each outfit fits a feeling or a desire.
Clothes, in man’s case only reflect the typical masculine state of spirit – it has to be predicable, conservatory and with a precise outcome. That is why you can always know when a man left his wife or girlfriend to buy him clothes. One of eight men doesn’t distinguish colors and most of them assort outfits badly. Still there are men that have great qualities in this area, but they have been brought up with fashion and they grew used to shopping since they were little.
To convince a man to go shopping, he must be given strict criteria like colors, dimensions, fabricants, styles, and he also has to know where he is going to shop and how much it is going to take. With such clear objective the man will be more than happy to go shopping.
When a woman tries on a new dress and she asks the man: “How do I look?” she will probably get a simple answer like “Good” or “Perfect”. And this doesn’t mean he has a point for him just for answering the question. To get more pleasant to the woman, he has to answer how another woman would, with as many details as possible.
For example when a man says: “Wow! You look incredible! This color fits you perfectly and the model enhances your waist – the boots are an incredible match. You look splendid.” then most women will be extremely impressed.
Online Shopping for Clothing
There are a variety of online retailers selling clothing. This includes traditional stores that also have online stores as well as retailers who operate exclusively online. Shopping for clothing online is very popular especially for those consumers who do not have sufficient time to visit traditional stores and spend time browsing and trying on clothing.
It is also a popular option for consumers seeking an outfit for a special occasion who have not been satisfied with the options they found available to them in local traditional stores. This article will supply information on some of the popular online retailers of clothing as well as information on selecting clothing items online and dealing with items that do not fit properly.
Popular Online Retailers for Clothing
The majority of major traditional stores that sell clothing also have an online version of their store where consumers can browse through the inventory, make purchases and have items shipped directly to them or to friends or family members.
Examples of popular traditional stores who also offer online versions of their store include Old Navy, Banana Republic, Abercrombie and Fitch and Ann Taylor. Additionally, department stores such as Target, Macy’s and JCPenny which do not exclusively sell clothing make their clothing, as well as other products, available through the online versions of their stores.
Shoppers who opt to peruse the online stores for clothing may find a greater selection than there is available in traditional stores. The online stores may have items available which are only available online. Additionally, the online stores may have access to a greater inventory unlike traditional stores which may run out of popular sizes rather quickly.
Choosing Online Clothing Options Carefully
When purchasing clothing online, consumers have to be somewhat cautious. This is because it may be difficult to tell how well a clothing item will fit without trying it on first. Also, it can be difficult to assess the texture or colour of clothing when shopping online. Online shoppers should read product descriptions carefully and pay particular attention to sizing charts when shopping online for clothing. This will help the consumer to make wise choices.
Online shoppers should also pay attention to the description of the cut of clothing items and should carefully compare these descriptions to the photos displayed on the website of the online retailer. This is an important consideration because consumers may prefer certain cuts which are more flattering to them while other cuts may not look as appealing. Paying particular attention to this information will help the consumer make wise decisions when shopping for clothing online.
When the Shoe Doesn’t Fit
Despite a consumer’s best intentions, there may be times in which they purchase clothing items they have to return because they do not fit well or simply because the consumer changes his mind about the item after making the purchase. For this reason, all online shoppers should carefully review the return policies of online clothing retailers before making purchases.
Most online retailers will take items back regardless of the reason for the return but some of them may only assume responsibility for the shipping fees associated with the return if the item is defective. However, there are some online retailers that will not accept returns on certain items and the consumer should be aware of these restrictions before making a purchase.
