No X

Bought a new pair of sweat pants today, size L, no X. Funny thing is, when I needed a 2X all you would see is L, now that I need an L, they had all kinds in 2X and 3X but only one or 2 pair in L, go figure.....

Yeah, I know what you mean

i got some xl sweat pants for x-mas. they are way too big!
i heard that the clothing industry was making adjustments to their products to compensate for american size increase (increase obesity, decrease activities, + diabetes, etc).
i tried a 2xl bicycle jersey (from ebay) and that did not work for me either! are people from Italy smaller?
