Can you imagine the sort of people who'd strike up conversations with you on public transport if you were wearing a Sun Ra T-Shirt?

Who do cool t-shirts only come in L and XL (and larger) sizes?

I think its a conspiracy to keep us little people and normal size people in plaid. Only FAT people deserve cool t-shirts?

Our racing team does the same thing. Only prints XL and XXL team shirts. At 5'7" 120 lbs they make a nice sleeping bag I can climb inside but I wouldn't wear one out in public.

(I did see a few M's on that list, but none of the good shirts)

I think it's just because there are a lot more of us fatties out there, and you can wear big shirts. (Baggy's kind of "in.") You don't want to see me in an M.

I've never been one to go along with whats "in" this week or follow fashion trends. I don't like wearing ill fitting clothes. I don't have spiked hair and its not purple. I don't wear prison bitch pants that the kids think are so cool now, I don't wear huge balloon sneakers with some basketball "hero" name on them, or blinky lights in the back, and I tie my shoes!, I don't even have a pierced toung or genitals.

I'm just an old fuddy duddy I guess. And loose clothing is very dangerous around machines and such.

Is that before or after?
Seriously, I'm intrigued by this "threads" thread, and would like to see an example of these trousers so us Brits can have a clue what you're all talking about. We probably have a different name for them.
I was recently sent an XL t-shirt mistakenly by an online retailer (who shall remain nameless), it would have made an ideal marquee for a modestly well-attended livestock auction.
I can just about wear an L - I don't mind a bit of flapping about, but M is often just a little too small. I guess the lesson here is that clothes-sizes are not based on human beings, but on machine pre-sets.

I don't know how they cut clothes in your neck of the woods, but by the time I've run a cotton XL through my dryer once, it barely fits.

I don't know what's up with sizing these days. I went to buy a new life jacket for canoing the other day...I had to buy a XXX/XXXXL!!!

What the??? Folks, I'm no model, but since when does 6', 200lbs mean triple-x???

edit: by the way, thanks for the site...:)

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Jul-21-04 AT 01:09 AM (EST)]The pants in question are as follows: Buy a pair approximately a foot short in the inseam, and about the same amount too large in the waist. Then wear a belt so they'll stay on just below (yes, below) your posterior (I assume for easier access). Just for the record, I'm another "plus-size" individual. I have trouble finding stuff that fits, let alone OVERsized. Though, at 6'3" and 235 lbs, and approximately 8 percent body fat, there's not a lot I can do about it.

Keep the rubber side down,

I just think it sucks that you can't walk up to a clothes rack and be able to tell by the size label whether or not the item will fit. They wouldn't even need fitting rooms if there was any uniformity to the labelling. It's gotta be costing the retailers money to be exchanging clothes that don't fit. Muy stupido!

er, what? those aren't the pants in question. Hospital pants are the ugly green (now in other colours, such as orange- hence the prison bitch label) pants that orderlies and surgeons wear in hospitals (hence "hospital pants"). They aren't typically worn too big.

Seen these lately ?


Red plaid bondage pants. You know, with the plaid straps connecting the legs.

Seems like every few years, I get to see someone wearing those. Usually with the same blonde spiky haircut.
