    I always thought of Oz as a nice place but here you are, saying it's full of drugs with a different dealer for each one, and a side-line in instruments of torture!!

    Sounds like a good plan!! What do you do with the ones who are undersized to begin with?

    I am 6 foot 4 ( 193 cm ) and 260 pounds.

    Your luck to find clothes to fit you. Yes we have seen that..

    I have friends in mexico with a water park They asked me what I WANTED for christmas. I said a shirt with the water park logo, like all the other workers have.

    I have everything money can buy, but I could NOT buy this.

    Well they got me a 2XL in mexico.... and gave it to me on the last day. They had to have a person embroider the logo in a rush job.

    Well being 193 cm tall, when I took it out of the box.. it only came to my navel!!!!! pretty sad for my friends. jajajajaj

    So yes, everyone is trying to cut corners. on cm of material on 10 million shirts is alot of money.

    Just try everything on, and pick what you like. GOod luck.

    A Storewide standard would be handy! However, is Global standards for a Global market asking too much?

    There is a rationalization but it is national or regional, not supra-national. Case in point: when I travel, I like to come back with T-shirts of my destination as souvenirs. In places like Cuba and Columbia, men are small so I must buy the very largest size available for the T-shirt to fit me. (In North America, I'm a Medium.) The T-shirts I bought in Columbia were barely OK but after a few washings they've shrunk so much that my wife now wears them...


    I realise all that Roger but if these things are done on a national basis then it's not really rationalisation, is it? As I said in the original post, a centimetre is a centimetre wherever you go, so why can't they standardise things and say "This shirt is so many centimetres round and so many centimetres long"? Confusion gone! everyone happy!

    It is still very annoying when you buy three items in the same store, all labelled as being the same size, and having tried the first one on to be sure it fits, they are three different sizes when you get them home!

    Do you ever come across this problem?
