Why So Many Small Sizes? - Page 2

Interestingly enough, I also stopped selling anything in a 42L-44L as I only know one guy on this forum that is a 42L that regularly buys stuff. On ebay, 42-44L are non starters.

That's because 42Ls like me are built to ideal human proportion and consequently fawned over, gifted of abundant, finely constructed 42L (52L) garments by Kiton bought at retail at Bergdorf Goodman from the most attractive salespeople better than Louis. Boston.

As a 42L, I can say that this has certainly been my experience.

Oh, goodness, it's getting late. I'm off to my money bath!

c) The stuff ends up on here 'cause it's remainders and extras that don't sell in B&M - the very low and high ends of the scale spectrum.

(b) is wrong. I'm 6'1 and 160.

The reason things are so small is because most people on here are asians which are obviously a small race.

Yes, for example hobbits who wear 40R and troll the B/S forum.

When I go shopping at B&M stores, the only things I see are intended for bull-necked individuals with hairy knuckles and thick bellies, a subset I unfortunately do not belong to.

Sizes EUR 48 made for a 5' 11" 170 lbs guy and EUR 50 for a guy up 6' and 190 lbs are the standard here in Europe.

EUR 48 is very hard to find on sale, EUR 50 is more common, I presume because the most RTW suits are manufactured for a 48 and 50.

52 to 60 you can find a lot on sale.

But I only buy 48 and 50 for sale, so if they don't sell I could keep them for myself ( I wear an EUR 48, 5' 11" 172 lbs ).

I wonder if people on a sex toys forum have these same issues on their buying and selling forum.

"Why then, are the d*ldo offerings here almost always confined to size 6 and under? There are almost never size 12s, and I'm not sure I've ever seen 14 or above. And the ben wa balls! I don't know many guys who use less than 2 inch circumference ones, but virtually all of the offerings here are smaller than that. I'm not complaining, but it seems curious."


This would make a great Seinfeld skit.

I totally agree with Lakewolf here. I am a EU 50R (somethimes 52 EU depending on the maker) and during sales these sizes are gone in a sec, whilst the bigger sizes EU 54 and upwards can be found plenty (even now), and I am talking Raffaele Caruso, Luigi Borrelli suits for 30%/40% of retail.

Insert ( ) "gently used" joke here.

+1. I am 6'3" 225, and wear a 44XL - and can't find a thing here or on ebay. I am therefore stuck paying more for suits that the bulimic munchkins get for cheap.

I don't know about you Ed, but I abstain to do the anal thing with the stuff I sell

You're asking why they don't sell giant sizes but sell normal sizes. I am sure those that are a 36-40S wish there were more items in their size as well but don't seem to have Rochester Big and Tall to shop at.
