Default Men's underware/Knickers, Large Size?

Over the 5 years that I've needed underwear, I have the most difficult time finding it, stores go out of business, rare if they have XXL men's underwear because the sizes would be for a kid.

XXL fits me and my waist size is 36. I've lost many pairs from theft, hanging on the lines but when I try to find replacements I can't, I've been reduced to now wearing women's under wear, my wife bought underwear the same day I did and mine... well it hurt when I wear them, no room, she bought women's underwear XXL and they fit me.

I've looked in major chained stores (all too small), markets in all area's and it's impossible.

You may have to travel to Manila but a good place to try is M & S (Marks & Spencer) they are famed in the UK for their underware. They are getting into the big malls, Mall of Asia have one. not cheap though.

I'm looking for cheap. In our area they sold underwear made here, it came in blue, maroon and white, cost was 50 pesos but they also sold Yuki yuki products and when Manila had that truck ban it ruined their business.

My next area was the markets and Chinese stores, they sell underwear with a thick band at 22 peso's but they can't or they tell me that they can't stock XL or XXL.

My next run this year to the Philippine Bureau of Immigration, I'll put in a stop at mall we were at last time in Pasay called the Baclaran mall or also known as a wholesale complex, all their items including curtains, bed sheets are rock bottom low priced, they have several floors and the middle floored area has a food court that is really cheap but great food and it also has large heavy solid tables.

Found a map of the area, I always forget the name of this spot and I feel I should pass this on.

More like disparate measures, the theft and lack of larger sized underwear makes it agonizing, I don't like these colors at all, wife tells me nobody will see them but? WTMI.

Mcalleyboy, remember that old saying, ‘A picture paints a thousand words’. We know you’re a good sport so when can we expect the supporting photos?

Perhaps you can have a local tailor customize for you. Get some cotton material you like, give him/her your old one to make a patterm, and bingo - tailor made underwear. Only in the Philippines.

When I do find the right size I'll buy in quantity but now I will buy in larger quantities, I need to search more often and try larger cities.

Update on underwear... it's taken me this long to find underwear that fits, can't believe it yesterday walked into Chinese discount goods store and they had XXXL underwear and it was quality the band is inside the seam the price was 25 pesos, I bought several pairs but returned today to clean them out, they had already sold all the darker colors I got stuck with a tan color but it fits perfect, I'm not fat I weigh 180 lbs but XXXL is the only size that fits perfect...Lol. Bought my son this same brand he's 12 and the medium sized mans fit him, got his school underwear ready early no use waiting for it to disappear for years.

Dare I go there? sure, why not. I wear boxer shorts and sometimes none. Where ever you be let them hang free. 10 days before flying back to PH. I had a double hernia operation, not keyhole but the full monty, very sore and swollen, the surgeon agreed that I could fly but should purchase tight fitting underwear prior to the flight,,,,,,,,,yeah sure and while not doing that in Oz I quickly purchased tight fitting under garments when we arrived in Manila, A 200Lb man looked, surveyed and queried and finally purchased 2 triple packs of undies,,,,,,,, different brands but both XL, one set perfect, the other XL set was for a 12 year old, after washing I looked at these and said to My better half these are too small, Yep they were too small, High pitched singing in the local Karaoke bar If I continued to wear them.
Both XL sizes? say no more, 3 pair went to the father in law and chuckle I am sure they won't fit him either. One of the younger nephews will inherit.
By the by, interesting to be running around in budgie smugglers again.

Cheers, Steve.
