    Default I hate clothing companies...

    Is it really f***ing impossible for any of them to make jeans that are both the correct length AND don't require a belt to not be at my ankles?

    Apparently, guys aren't supposed to have a small waist (barely a 31), and long legs (longer than a 34). The only ones I can buy that stay up on me are Levi's 505, and they are visibly short....

    Yeah I'm the same way. I look for 29 or 30 waist, 32 length. Almost doesn't exist. Guess there's not much demand for it.

    You bastards are lucky. I have a size 32 inch waist, with an unfortunately large size 36 ass. It makes for some very awkward jeans shopping. I either have to settle for uncomfortably baggy or ass bulging and crotch hugging. It's not fair!!!

    Hey Aimahn, is that a keg in your pants? 'Cause I would love nothing more than to tap that ass! You and them ass buldgy genes of yours.

    Nah, I'm lucky at around 30-32 waist, and 30-32 length. The reason it is not in stock is because I would guess that they are the most popular sizes.

    I hear you, man.

    I live in Asia at the moment and, apparently, 6'4" guys are supposed to be at least 37" around the waist. It's so annoying when one finds a great pair of trousers but it's either too short (mid-calf!) and perfect around the waist or the perfect length but hangs as loose as a Hollywood starlet.

    It's gotten ever-so-slightly easier to find clothes though now that I have gained 2" within the past few months. Apparently, a half-litre-icecream-habit-a-day does that to your waistline.

    I have the same problem with little boy sizes too. My grandson's not fat at all, wears a size 6/7 but the pants are about 6 inches too long! I hate hemming pants.

    I seriously didn't know it was so hard for guys to find clothes that fit. I always envied the fact that men could go into a store, announce their measurements to the clerk (who's usually more helpful than clerks in women's clothing stores) and get clothing that fits. Oh yeah, and probably also get it tailored on the spot, too. No stupid "size meaning" changes over the years due to vanity sizing, no complicated bust-waist-hip ratio to worry about.... Ah well. Nice to know we women aren't alone in finding clothes shopping frustrating.

    (being 5'3", slender and small-boned means I'm "petite", but why is it that stores never carry as many petite sizes as they do regular?... *sigh*)

    I'm like right in between of having to go to the normal clothes store and the Big & Tall store. So I'm boycotting clothes until they recognize my needs.

    It's still easier for us, but not that much (at least unless you're a midget or a short fat guy, since that's what seems to always be in stock at sears and old navy). It's why we buy lots of similar clothing...once we find something that actually fits nicely, buy 5, and that's all you need, and unless you're buying odd stuff, normal guy's clothing doesn't go out of style. (or in)
