    I just want to ask why the golf company's do not make apparel for people like myself, I wear 3-X shirts and size 44-46 pants, rain shirts and there are a bunch and I mean a bunch of golfers that are big people, Heck they say that over 70% of the population is way over weight but they make cloths for the other 30% ??? Makes me think that they are loosing a lot of sales because of it. I have lost over 100lbs. because I decided to eat right and walk while playing golf, but I am a big guy and I have to buy my golf shirts at like Wal-Mart and such. I sure wish there was a  way to get name brand i.e. Titleist, Cobra, Palmer, Izod and such at places where my buddy's shop for there cloths. Just  because I'm big don't mean I'm over weight and I know at my club alone there are way more Big guys than small !!! Help in Macon, Ga.

    Hello Sir,

    We do offer select shirt and outerwear pieces in XXXL.  Most golfers fit into our standard S-XXL sizing, our apparel is very "generously" cut.

    To echo Devin's comments, FJ are generously cut.  I'm 6'5" 240, so I'm not exactly a small guy.  I wear an XXL comfortably.  My main compliment to FJ is that they don't forget that people are tall.  In other brands the XXL may fit my chest, but the sleeves are too short or the body is so short, I can't tuck the shirt in without it popping out the first time I make a movement.  Nor are their jackets so short that my sleeves or body are hanging out.

    The same goes for their pants.  I can't stand a breeze on my ankles because the pants were made for someone short.  Men aren't supposed to wear capri pants.  FJ realizes this and their pants fit properly, whether it's the Performance Pants or rain pants.

    I also agree with Devin's comments.  I am 6'7" 250.  One of the reasons that I made the switch to only FJ products is that they make clothes big enough for guys my size.  I have never had a problem finding something to fit.  In fact, in some outerwear pieces, sweaters in particular i wear an XL.  Take the time to view all of the product selections and I am confident that you too will find something that works for you.

    I am right there with you, 6'-6" and 260.  I am able to wear the XXL shirts and 42 pants without any problems...everything fits perfect!
