Proud Wife from USA

Great story! My husband is an athletic, fit & trim 60+ year old, 5'6" 130-135 lb. man who wrestled in college and has run several marathons. Through the years he has been amazed that retailers seem to think that if you are not tall you must also be over weight. Like you, often if he can find a small in menswear they won't work, for a variety of reasons. Unlike you he is not able to fit comfortably into the extra large boys. Both shirts & pants tend to be just a bit too tight in critical areas. Now, can you help him find size 7 1/2 men's shoes?
