up to 150 responses - thanks again everyone!

I will keep it open through the next week or at least until responses stop coming in - whichever comes first.

I will say that there are some definite patterns emerging

Even though you specified a six month time period, I kinda went back further. I really didn't buy much this year so I gave info more generally. Hope it is useful.

BTW, I notice more and more big folks out on the weekends spinnin' those cranks, so there is a market segment waiting to be served.

I wonder if someone can create a spreadsheet or database directory of sellers of bigger clothing so we only have to look at one place to see what is available and then go directly to the seller.

My 'secret' is Boure. The Boure Pro shorts are my favorites, they do custom too

I just got 3 of these guys, I like the first one so much I ordered more. I figure I am set for life for thermal base layers now.
