    LOVE the podcast and am so looking forward to the book. Have you ever considered adding TALL sizes to your clothing line? I am used to paying a bit more for the advantage of having my wrists and ankles included in my clothes. You may find that others would also be inclined to purchase more if we could choose an inseam that would flatter. Thx. Cathy
