    I need some new gloves. If I could fit XXS or XXL sizes, I'd be laughing. Medium – full price.

    I wouldn't mind some new shoes either. Size 34 or 48, excellent. 42 – full price.

    It's crap being average!

    😉

    What is annoying is websites that advertise stuff at hugely reduced prices without saying that they've only got these small/large sizes.

    al.

    Funny that, I was just looking for L merino tops and all Embers Merino have are M. There you go medium man.

    Not necessarily, no. I take S in most things and size 41 shoes. Whilst I can sometimes get bargains, just as often I find shops only have the "average" sizes in.

    Not a sale example, but the road shoes I'd like to try on appear to only be stocked by the manufacturer's own branded shops starting from size 42. I asked about getting some 41s in to try and they wanted a deposit off me! Not the first time I've had that problem with footwear – at least one big outdoor chain only stocked mens boots from 42.

    another size 42 which for a full blooded male me thinks is a bit on the small size and generally good for bargain footwear

    I find being medium is increasingly become a niche size TBH. there's lots of places that mostly start at L for mens stuff, and have only things like tee shirts in any other sizes.

    Aye, for big freaks there might be more stuff in the sales (size 13 shoes), but really, you wouldn't want to buy most of it. "Hmm, yes, I would love to try on those NHS style tassled brogues, they're lovely" 😆

    It's normally a pain in the backside to find stuff that fits my bulkyness, but it pays off every now and then, like my Helly Hensen Boarding jacket that should have been £300 and cost me £49. Or my Goretex walking jacket that cost me £80 instead of £220.

    I have a large head, this has paid off a few times, everything else not so much!

    Cycling clothing is made for malnourished labrats – XXXL is something puny like a 46" chest. Large isn't as big as it used to be, XL is smaller and few people even make t-shirts in XXL never mind carry stock. Gloves I have scored on, but the rest mostly don't exist.
    The American companies tease us with their 23" bikes and XXL frames on their websites, then don't import them.

    YES SPECIALIZED – I'M LOOKING AT YOU!
