Yeah the whole shoe height thing is amazing. I spend a lot of time looking at it and comparing and talking to girls about it.
A 4" heel is low now for some. Mind you its mainly short arses who wear them. Still - remember cork platform shoes?
Hospital A&E have a bunch of twisted ankles and worse from them.
My podiatrist has a brain explosion every time I bring it up - along with the short term dangers of twisted/broken ankles there is a lot of long term damage to feet.

Ms fxh has trouble getting sensible low heels - shes 5'9" and a bit in barefeet

The pill has been around since 1960 or so. Modern women's rights movement since about 1870s. I suppose some people take a while to adjust to new things..
Interesting world you live in where women start their long decline @ 28 and men stay youthful intelligent and attractive forever. You should publish.

I'm sorry but it is scientific truth. Women age earlier than men do. Speaking on averages here.

 

When we age, especially physically, it creates new found humility.

I'm not sure how true this is, but I heard somewhere that the pill messes up women's pheromones. Something about changing them to the opposite of what they should be. One factor for attraction/compatibility is scent, so a guy who's attracted to them (by scent) while on the pill may not be anymore, once they are off the pill. That and a whole lot of other problems with being on the pill (hormone production, bla bla). Birth control will always be worse off for women than men, so the best we can all do is not fool around.

Just like some suggestions from you all, where are good places to get vests/waistcoats? Most shops carry shiny poly stuff, or they are usually too short. I don't have any high rise pants yet, and need something that can also go with my existing chinos and jeans. Any thoughts?

Yes I do Gerry. But in reality, everyone's different.

I'd say MJ Bale.

 

 

 

The feminists I've met in real life have annoyed me, it's more Women are better than men. Had this one girl who I'd be at clubs with, and she'd cause a scene if I held the door open for her because that's putting women below men etc etc. The problem aren't the real feminists who care about real Women's rights, such as places in the world where women can't vote, or the difference in pay. The problem comes from people who like to fight over nothing, cause a scene, and really want women higher than men.

Curiously, despite making an extensive overseas trip at least once a year, with a few domestic trips each year as well, I've never been asked to remove my shoes.
Last year I traveled a bit.On only one changeover in Heathrow - a bloody nightmare- I estimate I removed my shoes at least 3 times in front of surly poms in uniforms.

Removed them 3 or 4 times at Schipol going through there twice.

Strolled through Aberdeen all shoed up although going over another country - Ireland.

From Ireland to Netherlands - stayed shoed up.

Had nothing to do with alarms going off.

:laugh: The mind boggles at the thought of an entire generation of Foxhounds. Gen F. Just imagine the size of the second hand shoe market.

Methinks Mr Sy that you hold women in a similar regard as you do derbys.

I knew there was an answer to it! lol8[1].gif

Michael: your statement is a massive oversimplification and I feel largely incorrect. Show me what data you reference to and which elements of aging. Women and men have different profiles related to endocrine function and failure. Skin and reproductive function certainly are factors but it is a more complicated picture and I feel it would be foolish to make such a statement "based on averages". My response is "which and what averages". "Scientific truth" is a bad choice of words with respect to this large topic.

At the end of the day, women live longer as men are more prone to cardiovascular disease (a disease seen with age). Sure women get more osteoporosis from ovarian failure, but they live longer. It's not as simple as you make it out to be.

My general observation for women is that its not so much biological as sociological. 

 

When you're a young, attractive girl its easy to find young attractive guys to sleep with. Many girls I know date tradies who have the 'bod' but not much happening upstairs.

 

When you're an older woman looking to settle down the standard becomes higher - along with the 'bod' traits such as financial stability, reputation and being able to hold a prolonged conversation become more of a concern. 

 

Suddenly, you're competing in a much smaller market of white collar men, their numbers further dwindle when you exclude those camp as a row of tents.

"Young people these days, no respect. Tisk tisk. Back in my day it was so very different...."

As for the discussion on women, there is about as much expertise demonstrated here as there is on the Vogue forums about how to bone cordovan.

Best stick to what we know fellas.

Tradies generally have bigger incomes earlier too.

Though a friend told me his 24 yr old daughter who has double degrees in Engineering is going to start out in the Pilbara/Perth two weeks on two weeks off gig at 120K opening salary!
