In the 1970’s manufacturers came out with a new way to offer clothing at a huge profit to them namely one size fits all. If you were small like me, it was difficult to buy clothing. Everything was large and baggy. Although, during this period the sellers did quite well. In clothing factories, particularly for the lower priced clothing, they use a pattern with a laser cutting machine. They pile a large amount of fabric and then the laser cuts through. The first pieces are right on target as to size. However, as the machine moves down the pile, the sizes become larger. It is interesting to watch. But the bottom line is that the reason clothing doesn’t always fit exactly is because of this system. This is also true with shoes. The one size fits all theory has moved on to the legal industry. I saw a advert for a company offering a very low price for a Will or a Trust. Here is the problem. I have been doing this for twenty years. Just as no two humans are alike, neither are the needs of an individual or a couple in the preparation of legal documents. In most states, and actually most countries, the Will is almost useless. It has its purpose if you forget to put an item in your Trust but otherwise the probate limits are so low that its value is limited. We are all unique as our needs in life. This is quite true in the Good Gus series. Since there were no fancy factories during the Good Gus era, clothes were made by hand or custom made by small shops. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
