I'm looking for certain items. I'm hoping to find a suit or jacket and dress shirt for a big man. The suits and jackets sold at the Big and Tall/Warehouse stores only go up to about 60L. Based on measurements they took, jacket sizes 66 to 70 would probably fit well (depending on the makers sizing system). My neck size is 22 with 32 to 33 sleeves (I need a long sleeve dress shirt(s)). My pants are 58 to 66 (again, depending on the makers sizing system). Ideally, the jacket would be black (or work well with black dress pants), unless it's a full suit with matching pants that fits.
I have been trying to find these items at local stores (both department stores and thrift stores), but have had very little luck. I have one pair of good fitting black dress pants. But I currently have no dress shirts or jackets/suits.
I am disabled and was seriously ill for about 10 years. I recently (in the last 2 years) managed to recover some and lose enough weight (about 200lbs) to start finding some clothes locally. But dress clothes still elude me. I need these as a very good friend is getting married soon, and I would like to look respectable in the church. (Also so I can attend other events occasionally, such as church, funerals, etc...)
I'm hoping someone knows someone that has passed or lost a lot of weight and still has items such as these. (Not trying to sound morbid, but this tends to be how such items become available.) I am on disability, and have limited income. But I would consider all my options. I'm looking to find something by the end of August. Feel free to contact me if there are any questions, as I tend to respond fairly quickly to emails. I do not give out my phone numbers on , but if I feel you are a serious option I will once I've determined you are. I've never listed a wanted ad, so this is my first.
