"Discount" Clothing

For anyone who feels like children's clothing costs too much, never fear: Kevin Federline (erstwhile spouse of Britney Spears) is coming to the rescue. Says Kevin: “You buy your kids a pair of True Religions, then they roll around in the dirt like kids do and a $200 pair of jeans is gone. With this economy, I’m looking to do something much more reasonable.”

There's just one small problem: any lunatic who spends $200 on a pair of jeans their child is going to outgrow in about thirty seconds cannot be trusted, for anything. And especially not to make "discount" children's clothing.

I have never spent more than $10 for a pair of jeans for Michael, ever. And I've never shopped at Walmart for jeans, either (not that there is anything wrong with that, but if I can get better quality for a Walmart price, I'll shop elsewhere).

Of course, I don't understand a lot of things about children's clothing, like why do toddler shoes cost more than mine? And who in the world buys dry-clean only sweaters for their infants? Have they actually met a baby? Because last time I checked, the only thing babies were good for was expelling bodily fluids from every available orifice, sometimes all at once. Who wants to be running cashmere jammies to the cleaners?

Apparently the people who are willing to spend $200 on a pair of jeans for their 2-year old, that's who.

Obviously K-Fed has never heard of a clearance rack at Target or Old Navy. Wow, what people with too much money do. They could just give me the $200 and I could buy 20-30 pair of jeans. Aren't these people paying others to shop for them?

Oh good grief! Clearly he's never been shopping at a REAL store. Woodstock wears a lot of Gymboree that I got for less than $10 an item - okay, purchased off season, but still - I'm all for good quality and less than $10 for something she's going to wear no more than 6 months, if I'm lucky.

And I too wonder about the shoes. Even her sneakers from WalMart cost me over $10. Aggravation!
