goddamn sizing! I'm looking for some new garb - and I'm beginning to think that sizing charts are written for munchkins.

I know I am a-hem! as they say, "large" - but I'm sorry, an XL shirt should be more then a 40 inch chest! And when a cuff circumfrence of 6 inches (my wrist is 9 inches) is described as "generous" - I'm sorry; they are not fitting real people.

when you add in the long arms (I take a 37 inch sleeve) and the short legs (30.5 inch inseam) I **deTEST** clothes shopping.

And there I was ... thinking it was just me that had a freaky shape. Have you thought of learning to sew?
