Why Men’s Clothes Are More Expensive: The Economics Of Tailoring

Last Updated on May 19, 2021 by Bob De Generio

It’s no secret – men’s clothes are expensive. But why? The reason is not that they cost more to produce, or cut from fancier fabric; the answer is much more simple: tailoring costs a lot of money. Men’s clothing is made in large batches and then sold by weight for profit. So if you need alterations like shortening sleeves, taking in the waistline, lengthening hemlines- it’ll cost you extra cash upfront that can really add up over time.

Why Men's Clothes Are More Expensive

Do Men’s Clothes Cost More Than Women’s?

There are many reasons why men’s clothes cost more than women’s. The first, and most obvious difference between the two is in size. Men’s clothing is typically sized by chest size whereas women’s sizes are based on height and weight measurements. Another possible reason for higher prices relates to tailoring costs- as discussed above, it can be expensive or sometimes even impossible to get alterations done at a lower price point because of how much extra fabric needs to go into creating them (e.g., taking up slack space where hems drag). Finally, there may also be different labor rates in countries that produce the garments which contribute to those differences being reflected in increased sticker prices of items sold here domestically due to importing from overseas factories abroad).

Why Do Men’s Clothes Cost More Than Women’s?

-Men’s clothes are mass-produced and altered for fit. Women’s clothing is made to order, so it can be more economical by design.

-It takes more time and skill to tailor men’s clothes because they have a different body shape than women do; there are also the added challenges of working in heavy fabric like wool or tweed that require additional resources like steamers and irons. These costs add up when you start adding them together with all the other steps required before production starts on menswear: initial pattern drawing, material sourcing, garment dyeing/finishing, etc.

The result? Men pay higher prices up front as well as over longer periods of time if they need alterations later on down the line due to weight gain, loss, or other changes.

How much does the average male spend on clothes per month? The answer to this question would be found at the end of the article on why menswear is so much pricier than womenswear– it takes more time and skill to tailor for their body shape.

This is why men’s clothing cost nearly twice those made for women.

Why Are Men’s Clothes More Expensive?

Men’s shirts need to be hemmed three inches longer than those made for females because they sit down less and therefore the bottom of their shirt does not get as dirty from contact with chairs, tables, and floors like a woman’s jeans. Men also have broader shoulders which require wider sleeves- this means that each sleeve needs its own set of darts when it is taken in (to make them narrower) whereas if one dart can cover both the chest area and arms on a female then only two sets are necessary: one for her chest and another for her arms. This makes tailoring twice as difficult but four times as long since there are now six different pieces to be fitted to the garment.

Men’s pants also require more fabric- as a rule of thumb, women need between three and five yards per pair whereas men typically require six to eight yards so this means that for a company producing 500 pairs, they will have used twice as much fabric if all are female but four times as much when manufacturing them all-male; it is therefore not surprising why these garments cost more on average than those made for females.

Why Are Women’s Clothes So Revealing?

Women’s clothes have an emphasis on the torso and chest area. This is because women typically don’t wear pants or cover their upper bodies in public, so designers find that drawing attention to these areas is a more effective way of selling clothing than designing for other regions. Women’s fashion trends also emphasize different parts of the body depending on culture; one example would be how wearing a sari emphasizes long legs as they flow down from under it, whereas traditional Western dress focuses less on this part of the female form.
