    I would by the fabric, then have it tailor made. I had one of my long sleeve shirts duplicated and it only cost P400 incl materials (had 6 made in diff colors). I bought the material at some fabric store in duma. cant remember though.. I took it to a tailor by Silliman called Gabriel's...Good guy.

    Ho's Marketing in Real-Street, up to 4XL. Polos, T-Shirts etc. You find big sizes also at Opsimas (Real Street). Most in "normal" colors, meaning without that stupid prints on it. Trousers and shoes can be a big problem in adult-sizes.

    If your on a budget, the Villa Amada Ukay2x along the national highway, on the way to sibulan, often has big sized shirts and pants. Just expect quizzical looks from the locals.

    Its a bit of a sore subject for me, for years I have been finding the length is a hard find, and size. 13 shoe a no go.

    There is a store that makes blue jeans across the street ( west side) from Robinsons, south maybe 100 meters.
    Have fun finding
    shoes if over 11.5 us size. Good luck. Been to every store here for years. none. Oh, the resale place has used shoes at new price, think its called ally may or near that name. I have had to use smaller size flip flop sandles, rubber for some time now. Save my imports for ONLY going out. Been to all the stores here for pants. answer, sorry sir nothing over 32 length. Very rarely in super lee I can get a couple times 34 length.
    got loged off, hope this only post once

    for 13 shoes you need to go to a real city.

    For trousers i give my boss money and send her to ukay ukay all over the city. Ladies enjoy that and she usually finds quite good quality in adult sizes. Well, I have short legs, but the width is the problem...

    We seldom anymore find much in the Ukay2 here, too many fat people buying up all the good clothes. However, we were recently in Bayawan, and to my surprise many of the clothes there were too big for my relatively (by expat standards) skinny frame. MANY good quality shorts above size 40.

    The tailor mentioned near Robinson's is my wife's cousin (Rudy). His work is very good, but he is not as cheap as some.
