    They? Who/where?

    Not Target or anywhere else my daughter and wife shop. They would love a source of real pockets.

    PS: yes I will Google it but I will be surprised if these are brick and mortar stores. I hope so. But… Buying clothes online sucks ime.

      I said online not brick and mortar. Physical stores aren’t going to sell niche items that women aren’t buying as often.

      Buying clothes online is basically all I can do as I can’t find clothes that fit me in stores. It sucks infinitely less than before I could buy stuff online.

          They’re niche because women don’t buy them.

          From what I understand it’s because bulky pockets full of stuff aren’t visually appealing to women whereas men will rock cargo shorts and look like idiots without caring.

            This is the dumbest fucking argument.

            Women dont buy clothes with pockets because they’re not in stores as much.

            Just shop online!

            Idk how often you actually shop for clothes online but getting something that:

            • Fits
            • Has pockets
            • Won’t fall apart in a couple months

            Is far more difficult than you’d expect. Broadly speaking, women want pockets, but expensive purses exists so capitalism’s gotta go do it’s thing.

              Right it’s a global conspiracy by big purse! That’s the real dumbest fucking argument.

              Fact is clothes with pockets exist, yet women don’t go for them.

              And don’t give me that quality crap when shit like Shein was able to explode in popularity.

              It’s about looks over function.

              And as I’ve previously mentioned, I’m someone who buys the majority of their clothes online because stores don’t cater to me, it’s not hard to find quality clothes with a few seconds of searching.

                It’s willful misinterpretation day I see.

                My implication wasn’t that there’s a global conspiracy of purse manufacturers to prevent the production of pockets. That’d be retarded. However when there’s companies that make both women’s clothes and purses, it’s certainly more profitable to make sell clothes and a purse, and it’s certainly easier to sell that purse if there’s no pockets on the clothes.

                Shien is shit that people buy to wear once, and then donate or throw away. Ive yet to see people buying shien crap for long term wear. Meaning it doesn’t fulfill the “doesn’t fall apart” requirement.

                Either way, seeing as neither of us have evidence and this is just vibes bases argumentation, this isnt gonna go anywhere.

      Target absolutely sells dresses and skirts with pockets. I have bought several.
