Is it socially acceptable to purchase any wife waders that are labeled XL?
Or what would happen IF you brought home some waders for the woman in your life that contain the label XL. I believe I would flinch. Even IF your wife's perfect size is an XL, can her self image manage the image damage that XL contains. Would XL wading trousers encourage the wifely unit/GF/Friend to join you more often while fishing?
.
Whereas I totally respect Simms equipment I just wonder if the marketing gurus might open the market a bit w women's waders that are labeled: Comfortable, Roomy, athletic, spacious as the sky, generous, or large enough to house a medium sized family.

I'm sure that it stands for eXtra Lovely. What better marketing could Simms do?

bbbbbb...where is all that self confidence and stream-bred bravery dealing with women?...okay...well...maybe just one woman...

Surprisingly, Wilhelm has made a fairly accurate "cast." The Simms labeling designations have been given new definitions for Spring '13 and I recently completed the dealer training seminar and received my gold star. XL now refers to Xtra Luscious or in some cases Xtremely Lacivious. L is simply the same but without the modifier etc. etc.

However, there have been some adverse effects. One customer when explaining the new size designation to his "full bodied" bride, was informed that he could no longer go on long weekend SoHo trips with the boys, and outings to "The Tuck" were off limits!

Buyer beware!...or blame it on the old, visually impaired sales clerk for putting the wrong size in the bag....he's use to it...gets blamed for everything he does wrong!

Oh...just so you know...SALE on Men's cold weather fishing clothing and accessories starts today!....
