    that's average? i'm 32 in jeans, 5'10, 165 lbs, 38R, 9 1/2 10ish in shoes. i can wear the samples so i'm happy to get free clothes.

    How is it free b/c you fit the samples?

    Everytime there's a sale my size disappears almost immediately. I'm size 10 in shoes, 42R in jackets, 36 in pants, and medium in tee-shirts, etc.

    I was monitoring this nice wool trenchcoat at the Brooks Brothers sale and of course the 42R's disappear first!

    Why don't stores stock up more common sizes?


    I'm a 40-42 in jackets so I feel your pain, but I'm afraid I have to completely disagree with your assertion that 36 is "average" for pants size. Among people who invest heavily in their wardrobes, I should think 32-33 is more of an average waist. Then again, maybe you're thinking about the people wearing Kiton suits and I'm thinking about the people buying Dior jeans ... carry on .... [​IMG]

    Waist size 36 always seems to be the first one gone. Depends on the store too though. I shop heavily at BB. If you shop at Walmart, I'm sure the the XXL's are gone first...

    Also - Yes, my butt is big! I refuse to take squats out of my workout routine. Muscle butt or belly? I'll take muscle butt - lol.

    I'm with the OP - 36, 44R, 9D - yeah, there's lots of toolbox shoes in those sizes, but nice shoes never last til the sale.

    why are you a 42R when you wear medium in tshirts? you should be a 40R. i wear large in tees and 42R. 16neck

    I though the same thing, I'm a 42L and wear a large in tees, 34 waist.

    The one thing I never have trouble finding in my size is shoes, I'm an 11D.

    wish I could say my excess weight had anything to do with muscle [​IMG]

    I don't know about that. I went to Uniqlo in NYC to buy a pair of their raw jeans. They had every size from 32 - 38, except good ol' 36.

    Oh, I live in a strange land west of NY where pizzas are a plenty and coke is the new water - lol. Also, sitting in a cube all day ain't helping my silhouette.

    Dude... I'm not svelt, but I'd hardly call myself Gigantic with a 36 waist. I'd say 34 is average for adult males not in Asia with a high distribution from 32-36. 30 and 38 are less common.
