I wonder if most of the time they have already spent the money to buy restocks.

Yea that sure is possible in the smaller stores. But in the bigger stores it's just lack of training, supervision, accountability, and basically they just don't give a hoot. I doubt it will change in a million years but the first large retailer that does business like it should be done will have all the customers they can handle.

A little update I finally found my underwear size 36 but here it's marked as XXXL at the same store "Novo" I purchased many years ago in 2014 and very few have made it this far I bought 21 pairs back then but I still had 1/4 of them left because I kept some in boxes for several years as a back up but back then they were 25 pesos and the price today was 40 pesos, real high quality nice hidden garter band, I bought every single pair they had 17 pairs.

Another note... we asked the lady that was handling this section if they sold XXXL underwear and she just shook her head with no answer and then another shopper was there with her husband and she showed my wife a XXXL, there was a two bags full of underwear but way back on the shelf.

Back at it again the search for Knickers/Underwear that'll fit me but Briefs this time, I work in the yard and I need some separation from my upper leg area.

Nothing remotely close to fitting adults, kid sized underwear sold so today I ordered off of Shopee 6 pair of Briefs for 168 pesos and put in 5 orders so a total of 30 pairs and I found 4XL so 3XL fits a 36" waist so I'm going to try 4XL fits 38 - 42" ??? waist (hope it's not too big) and maybe it won't fit so tightly or I won't have to worry about the garter belt wearing out so fast, and also give my legs some room the Asian sized underwear are way smaller from Western sizes even the branded ones sold in the stores and very pricey.

I was amazed to find not only great prices but the the larger sizes available, there are some more quality breifs more strechable materials also I might order but they run 160 pesos each.

I tend to wear 99% of the time sports shorts with the gauze inner. I find briefs far to hot.

You'll be right for undies for a while Mark. I have 30 to 40 pr of various underwear we shipped when we moved, recently Ben grabbed me 2 (last ones) pair of stretchy boxer shorts, one button on the front, size large from our Bench store in SFC. I am a 34 to 36 inch waist depending on the garment. These new boxers are comfortable but for me the elastic waist band is a little lose but works, probably better for 36 to 38 inch waist. Not cheap at over 200pesos each though but cheaper than what I would pay in Oz.
What a topic, lol.

Cheers, Steve.

Update... I received my briefs today sized 4XL and they fit my waist is in-between 36 - 38" so actually I probably could have been okay with the 5XL and I was worried about the 4XL being to large but they fit just barely. Briefs aren't hot the material is light and the waist band is hidden so overall a good buy.
