Work shirts, shirts, indigo, stonewash
My father and myself have been wearing your wrangler work shirts (the indigo and stonewash) for years. Last week we went to a local western store to purchase some work shirts only to find out that Wrangler would no longer be producing size variations by way of sleeve and neck measurements but instead mass produce what is considered common big and tall sizes like XL, XXL. Being in the big and tall category we have always turned to them as they come in the sizes we wear that are extremely difficult to find. My dad in particular wears a 19.5 x 38. I wear a smaller neck but my sleeve length is the same because of my shoulder width. The new big and tall categories are not conducive to either of our sleeve lengths (XL, XXL, etc.). Big and tall doesn't mean fat and short, which is the way yours and other companies have seem to take with the sleeves. We get it, you took a common sleeve size relative to a common proportion with the rest of the body, but what Wrangler seems to forget is that the big and tall category cannot be held to a common size standard as the S, M, L, etc. We are short and fat, tall and skinny, tall and fat, tall and broad shouldered, and everything other combination in between. What set your company apart from others is that they were not following this trend of "common" sizes. People don't want to buy shirts that you can pitch a tent in just to have the sleeves button at the elbows. Seriously, what is the deal?
