Not really, but at least when it comes to shopping selection.
I was a XXL and 40 waist several years back, I have since after several years of working out in the gym and changing a couple eating habits, am now down to a Large and 35-36 waist. And your correct about the shopping selection for larger sizes and there are so many more options at the smaller size, plus most retailers receive more of those sizes as apposed to the XXL and B&T sizes. So the smaller size always go on sale and you can usually catch good deals, Years back when I was rocking XXL if I went a Macy's or Bloomingdales and saw a polo I liked there would usually be only 1 or 2 in XXL and I would have to jump on it cause if I didn't it would be gone.
So yeah your right the M & L guys got it made when it comes to certain types of shopping and clothes, I actually love it now tho, but my wallet hates me because every time I go somewhere and see some polo, they usually have something I like, want and don't already have and in my size, and so therefore I buy it even though I know I don't need it
Only thing that sucked for me was that I had to re-buy many pieces in my new size and had tons of stuff that didn't fit me anymore. I was left with over 100 XXL polos and somewhere around 40-50 polo jeans and shorts, and that not even including suits and dress shirts, fortunately I was able to sell most all of the pieces on cl and to friends, but I still have about 10 or so polos and some dress clothes left.
Unfortunately I recently tore my ACL and Mensiscus playing ball at the gym and will be having surgery in the coming weeks I am just afraid that I may put on a little weight since while I am out of the gym I won't be getting an exercise and I still have some bad eating habits, I love sweets, damn it
