    Banana Republic used to have them, but they seem to be unobtainium now. Anyone have a source?

    All my shirts (not counting t-shirts) are short sleeve/permanent press. Never had a problem finding them. Of course, I never buy them. My wife orders them from places like LL Bean or Land's end or Territory Ahead or something.

    I never know what I'm wearing. I just grab something that doesn't smell too bad and buttons up without stretching the buttons.

    I see them all the time. Are you looking for something special style-wise? Trying to avoid cotton? Live somewhere with no department or stores which carry men's clothing?

    :dunno:

    As mentioned earlier: LL Bean.
    Love their shirts with lots of pockets.

    They seem to be plentiful for for big guys and for twiggy guys, but not for 5'7" 150 me. Yowza, CDC says the average male now weighs 197.8? Sheesh.

    And at only 5'9".

    It would be interesting to see a state-by-state breakdown. I know I see substantially more heavy people here in North Carolina that I saw in Colorado.

    People are taller too. I’m over 220 but 6’4”. I should still lose 15 lbs though

    I thought so to but then I looked at the CDC data. That 30 lb difference in average weight involves a huge 1" difference in average height.

    Wider, not taller.

    I was just at Costco today. They had a nice selection of short sleeved shirts.

    LOL. That 197 was pretty much what the scale said when I went, "no, that's not right," and decided to lose 30 lbs.

    Sweet! It's been pretty good on the west side, but today is crumby. We've had the kids to the pool here a few times this season.

    I need to fly in to Desert Aire sometime. I know you've got a killer golf course, is there a breakfast joint in walking distance?
