Making the most of it, enjoying life
Where do people with a disability shop for clothes?
This company sold just a few items, amongst them trousers, cut high at the back and shorter at the front, with the legs slightly longer so that they covered the shoes while the wearer was sitting. They also had a selection of jackets that were cut shorter and wider so the shape was still good while sitting in a wheelchair.
The expense put them way out of reach, financially, for a great many disabled people including us.
There were few companies supplying such clothes so there was no competition that would lower the prices. Compared to high street stores there were relatively few customers.
Now there are a few more companies making clothes for people with disability, this one in Nürnberg being one of them. Although the prices still remains high, the quality is good and the cost is not much higher than good quality off-the-peg, chain-store clothes. Most importantly the look nice and they fit.
