Two ways  
The clothing biz privileges men (in the current sense of not treating them like shit).

Unless you're larger than "normal", in which case you are treated like a freak, and your choices plummet.

Still better than women's choices though. I speak from experience here. I have a husband whose size and shape are not accommodated by standard clothing. The clothing industry offers us some lovely gunnysacks, gathered at the waist with -- rope, is it? Because having to take account of real bodies would just be too much trouble.

I myself wear entirely men's clothing, except for underpants, because men's legs are hinged onto their bodies at a slightly different angle than women's. My daughter does not have this problem; she wears *entirely* entirely men's clothes.

It's true - mens' clothing is built to last; womens' clothing is built to wear out. Also, womens' gear comes in garish colors more suitable for preschoolers than for adults, and often has stupid labels, logos and clashing 'trim' stuck on. For decades, I've bought mens' sneakers and mens' Levis, because they fit correctly and don't fall apart in three months.

That said, y'know, there is this handy device called a sewing machine: Goodwill has lots of them for cheap, and Youtube has tons of videos on how to use one. Nobody has to wear poorly-made, ill-fitting store-bought clothing, the same way nobody has to live on junk food.
