It was inevitable. I had to buy bigger pants. Not long ago, I was wearing 42's. Then I upgraded to 44's. Today I went out and got 6 pairs of 46's! They're a little roomy, but my recent rate of gaining suggests that I'll fill them out pretty soon.|
I preceeded this purchase by having lunch at a Chinese buffet, so I was good and full as I tried on the 46's. I shopped at a Burlington Coat Factory, which has a decent selection of larger sizes. Certainly better than most general retailers. And it's good to know that they routinely carry up to waist size 50 or larger, and plenty of 4X and 5X shirts. (I'm still a 2X, although some of my older ones that have shrunk a little are getting delightfully snug!) And I have to say it's an incredible feeling to have to shop in the Fat Man's section.
