The first time I came to Philippines, I was so surprised that I was towering everyone. Nobody can miss me at the airport because I was the only American in the local flight and when I got out of the plane, I was standing tall, taller than anybody else. Although I am considered very tall in the Philippines, I am of average height in the USA. With my height and being so skinny, I don't need a big and tall clothing. I can easily buy my clothes in any store without any problems.
It is true that in the USA there are many big and tall people that is why there are specialty stores that sell big and tall clothes. In some department stores, there is also a section for big and tall.
Anyway, my bestfriend is big and tall. My wife even nicknamed him "giant". He shops for his clothes at a specialty store. I teased him that if he ever goes to Philippines, the kids will be scared of him and of how big he is. I also told him that with his size, he will have a hard time finding clothes in the Philippines.
