Hi all,

I'm trying to make boxer shorts for a friend who is a big & tall guy. You would not believe what they charge for men's boxers. Any way I'm trying to attempt this new project myself partly in protest because I think it is totally outrageous for plus size folks to be overcharged for boxer shorts I mean really? So I have been trying to locate a pattern that may go beyond XXL. I saw that Simplicity had one I think that goes to XXXL. Has anyone tried anything else or perhaps have suggestions for how much to add to an existing pattern that only goes to XL? The only two companies that I know that had a decent pattern was KWik Sew and am discovering Simplicity.

You could ask for an old pair (bleached well of course!!) and deconstruct them into a pattern you can trace on paper.
The best part of this is you know they will fit.

Just reading another thread tonight and there was a link to this site in Australia for womens. I see they also have men's patterns up to 4XL
