“She was a kid from LA who had just graduated from UCLA with a minor in women’s studies and had just arrived at the CIA.  They handed her a stiff polyester uniform. At the time there were very few female students and the S, M, L sizes reflected this. The pants were cut for men, had no elastic in the waist, and were a horrible fit. So she bought some all-cotton hounds-tooth print material and had a friend in California sew a pair of pants for her—and she got a doctor’s note saying she had an allergy to polyester.”
