Why do women have so many more clothes than men?

Amongst everything else, we have builders in the house. Part of the modifications that they are slowly doing involves moving our bedroom from the ground floor to the middle floor, and the living/play room from the middle floor to the ground floor. Due to the extra workload I've had with the Boss and baby being in hospital, this has happened over a period of several weeks. One result was that we had a bedroom upstairs, and the Boss' clothes downstairs (well, she wasn't here to need them, and I had enough else to do that was urgent without shifting things that could wait).

I finally got around to moving her clothes upstairs the other day, and was amazed at how many she has. My wardrobe consists of white shirts (about ten), black trousers (about four or five pairs, which I consider to be quite a lot), one weekday jumper, one Shabbos jumper and a suit. She has enough clothes to stock a medium-sized boutique in a fashionable district of Paris - albeit with the wrong sort of clothes for such a place! It seems that women have a completely different wardrobe depending on the time of year. The only difference between my summer and winter wardrobe are the two jumpers mentioned above! Why do women have so many clothes?

I suppose this isn't a new question. It probably goes back to the time that Adam wondered why Eve had three fig leaves and he only had one!
