Is there a feature in garments that seems pointless or nonsensical to you?
One that always seems silly to me is that "breathable cotton panel" trumpeted by hosiery makers (we all know the one). Yes, it's cotton - cotton that then gets covered in nylon, lycra, or whatever highly non-breathable synthetic the tights are made of.
Am I just overly peevish about these panels? Is there another feature that makes you go, hmmm...?
