The problem is not liking pantsuits, or modesty.
The problem is the extreme lack of pockets.

Count how many pockets a man's suit has - two pockets in the jacket and
maybe a (small) breast pocket, breast pocket on the shirt , two side seam
pants pockets, or maybe 2 pockets in front and 2 in back.

Now count how many pockets a woman's suit has.  Zero.

Most skirts don't have pockets either.

who does not like pocketbooks.
