Yea to all that ... Laundry? I was merely making a joke (that's my way). We actually hang dry our clothing (a first for me) and here, so far, it's safe from those undergarment thieves. I catch one stealing my stuff and they'll be wearing them over their heads .... and I can do it, being a big, burly,, snarling .... oh wait, that's not me anymore. Peace Love and Palawan (Friendly).

Good luck with your underwear thieves....perhaps you can put a GPS tracking device on them and do panty checks on the local populace. Haha, there I go again, just joking.

Yes, PPS is quite nice, other then the total butthead drivers here which might or might not get you killed if you blink. EVERY time I go out on the road I come back with a slight stiff neck from the reactions to the terribly bad and dangerous driving here ... just unbelievable. We were in Manila one day and some clown decided to go 1/4 mile on the wrong side of the median to get what he wanted .. a brief purchase from the wait. I saw a bunch of PNP cops down the road and thought they would surely bust this guy. Nope, he went right by them at high speed (within inches of them) and they barely paid attention. "Do the crime?" "No Problem".

Be well, Mabuhay from Palawan

Your description of the drivers there sounds the same as every other island, my main sore spot about living here. Comes down to the Philippine 'ME FIRST' attitude from top to bottom.

Gentlemen, I'll redirect this thread back to the availability of men's underwear.

Thanks

Art for sure you are going to have a tough time finding affordable underwear that fits with a 36 inch waist, I found a spot that sells the underwear but it's still a challenge to get my size and the XXXL in some styles won't fit correctly and they can't seem to keep any certain style or off brand named underwear in stock, example I went back to this store and they now sold Kung-Foo Dragon underwear (funny brand names) , they do fit and look good but the material makes them a little tighter, they had another option but it was worse with a rubber cloth type of waist band and the material not so nice.

It's a business opportunity and so the re-sellers come in and buy them out the price is only 25 pesos.

I brought plenty of underwear with me and they lasted a couple years and that was it, my wife has all the other wacky named Chinese made underwear I thought fit me until I got home, son now also has no shortage of underwear.

Thanks for reminded me, I need to make another run and see what they have because someone keeps stealing my undies, I can't seem to get a break. I did purchase some branded underwear Dickies in a major department store but the price was 350 for only 3 pieces and the material ended up shrinking and they were already tight to begin with but still listed as a XXXL, that's way too much to spend on underwear.

I can't find my size anymore, once it's gone it's gone forever, so I have about 20 pairs left out of 40 I had purchased so the other issue is someone keeps stealing them.

Another note Art... quality comfortable breathable (holes) exercise shirt and shorts, nothing fits you here and it's not comfortable, I miss Walmart shorts and shirts they were only $5 when I left and most of my stuff after 7 years is worn out... the local stuff is horrible and is hot no breathable holes and doesn't fit.

Mark,

As I remember you drive right? Sometime when you get the urge travel on the roads (expressway) a bit you might try the "duty free" Puregold on Clark Air Base. You'd never believe the items they have from the States and elsewhere. Everything from close to shaving cream to most any kind of food items you can think of. That's the place most people around go to get those hard to find items. But, like anywhere else, if you find what you want get plenty as their resupply can be a bit slow or else you must settle for other brands..

The Philippine mind seems unable to grasp the concept of resupply or supply & demand as it pertains to business.

I would have to agree Fred. Try to explain to a store owner that they are losing money by running out of stock on items that sell; that the customer will go elsewhere to get what they want and ya get this empty, deer in the headlights look of non-comprehension that's just amazing. Complete lack of understanding.

The large retailers and especially the duty-free stores on base seem to do better. Their main problem is just ordering early enough to compensate for the ocean going ships to bring and trucks to deliver the orders. Other than that they have good selections on lots of items.
