Long legs... or not

Went into Zara today to investigate their men's clothing. I'd been told that they were good for smaller sized trousers.
"How small do your trousers go?" I asked
"30 inch waist"
"And the legs?"
"34 inch"
"The shortest leg?"
"34 inch"
Me: "What?!? That means you won't have any customers under about 6 foot 4!"

The shop wasn't full of tall lean customers, actually, there were very few men in there at all. For comparison, the two female sales advisors I spoke to can't hve been more than 5'4" and 5'0" each. I really do wonder how long the shop can continue this policy without going bust.
There's a definite lack of trousers for short skinny men - if you're shaped like an egg, and only slightly taller than one, you're spoilt for choice.

Hmmm, I smell a business opportunity - there are shops for "the larger man" so why not "the smaller man"?
Therefore, I am announcing that I will soon be opening

Miller & Co. Pygmy Outfitters

Maybe the name needs some work.

God help us all!
