Why do manufacturers skip over the size 9 for children?

Seriously, look at The Gap and search by size. Where’d the 9 go? And Old Navy? Same thing. It’s not just those retailers either. The chart on the left? (If you go to my blog you'll see the chart) That’s from Garnett Hill. There IS no size 9 for kids there either. Why is this?

I can deal with this size 9 thing when it comes to tops. Boys tend to like their shirts and tees to be big. However, I think the age of 9 is a little young for the jeans falling down look with the boxers sticking out. Not sure I can even handle that look when he’s 17. This is my personal opinion, however. I realize some of you may like that look for your 3rd graders.

With a size 8, the length is too short for mylittle boy-wonder. A 10, the waist is too large.

I get that the age of nine is kinda ordinary as far as childhood goes. They’re pretty much set into a routine with homework and activities. The hormones are still tame and they’ve got a hint of independence. And as far as parenting….a nice little breather on the stress factor. But still…they still need to wear clothing.

Where are the size 9 pants??????
