Is it possible to find cyclists clothing for us that are XXXL or bigger?

I know that many,if not all cycling clothing is meant for those that are even half way in decent size and shape.I'm not saying I want to look like Lance Armstrong blazing down the country side,but I'd like to find a comfortable pair of cycling shorts to fit me.I can live with t-shirts for tops,but I would like something better than the flimsey Wal-Mart shorts to cycle in. Anybody know where I can find some?

I just bought some bibs from love2pedal.com 2 pairs for $60 3xl. They also have a great return policy if they don't fit properly. They also have 4xl bibs and up to 5xl jerseys. Dan was a great guy to deal with. For the record I'm 5'6" 282 lbs and wear a size 42" pants below the gut. The 3xl bibs fit great, hold everything in place well.

I just bought a couple of 4x jerseys at love 2 pedal. They also had some nice 5x available with decent patterns/prints.

Try looking at Aerotech designs web site. I am a clyde that needs the bigger size too and the Euro size cycling clothes that are to be for clydes don't fit me either. Aerotech has them I have the bibs and the short + a few shirts that fit great & work well for the long rides too for me. If you have questions about anything you see on the site don't hesitate to call them, they have great customer service and have answers any question I have had in the past.

I was miserable today trying on jerseys. I was in this huge shop near Orlando. Nowadays, I fit into mostly XXL T shirts or sometimes even XLT T shirts. But today, a 3X jersey fit me like a sausage casing. And I'm not talking about a good snug fit. I mean it was tighter than a second skin; like it was trying to replace my FIRST skin. Tood bad, because I like the design. One of these days I'll find something that fits me well.
