So this morning I head out with the best of intentions of getting a couple button down sport shirts. I dont wear them often but my other one seem to have shrunk! I went to 4 Department stores, including Sams. Nada, nope nein, nie, het ni'hea no way... SO tomorrow I guess I will broaden my search to 30 miles out,, maybe but I doubt it,,,, #Thanks Joe

Good luck finding anything. Try LL bean online good shirts and they fit us rounder type fellows. I have a closet full since I retired.

I found something similar with Tee shirts.

At first I blamed myself, for the fact that the new tee shirts I bought seem to be shrinking. But then I pulled out an old but little used XL tee shirt, and it is the same physical size as the new 2XL tee shirts I bought, since the XL size I used to buy were now tight as far as current XL size goes...

Conclusion: Blame is partly on me, but mostly on the manufacturers. Seems like for men, making things smaller adds some macho marketing value when men have to buy larger sizes, whereas, for women, putting smaller designations on the same size clothing adds marketing value...LOL

Skeets - - I buy my pants from Tractor Supply...the pants I wear everyday, to work, home, etc.

My bride gave me a gift card last Christmas.

My normal TSC has squat for pants....been getting them there for years.

Been getting my pellets from a brand new TSC. Same distance as normal one. Have better stuff all-around.

Yesterday, got another ton of pellets, and 3 pairs of bitches using her gift card..

I won't have to go to work tomorrow bare-assed.... 😳

Skeets, it might be the time of year. They take all the light weight stuff off the racks about July and start putting out the Fleece lined stuff because we're all supposed to plan ahead. Try finding a warm coat in January.

My TSC has stopped carrying the kind of jeans I liked.

Well I might have hit TS tomorrow and RK, as I reallllllllllly hate going to the malls. And no sheepfarmer the shelves were bare for my size ( XXL T ), but if a fella was 5'6" and weighed in about 130 pounds there was plenty to pick from. I mean the holidays are coming and I dont want to go out in my Carhart's someplace nice,,ya know what I mean

The shirts you desire are probably on a boat anchored off-port.
