|Inspired by the 0 and 00 jeans question..

Two somewhat gender related questions..
1. Why are females' jeans sized 0, 2,4,6,etc and males' jeans sized by waist, hip, inseam? Wouldn't it be much easier to size both male and female jeans by actual measurements? I don't really want any sarcasm.. I want a real answer.
2. When a couple is engaged, why is it only the female that wears an engagement ring? My thought is that when a person has a ring on his/her finger, s/he's generally known as off-limits to others. But when a couple are engaged, only the female wears a ring, letting everyone kow she is taken, but the male (to the uninformed observer) is still single. Why is that? Where does the tradition come from, anyhow?
