While many of the shirts we offer come in sizes up to 4XL, every once in a while someone needs something truly big. These are not the 6XL and even 8XL shirts that we do on a frequent basis. Those are big, but they're still human scale. We're talking about super-human sized shirts up to 28XL. This is a picture of a size 28XL Hawaiian shirt hanging above the factory floor of a local manufacturer. Everything on the shirt is big as you can see compared to a standard size L shirt. The label is the size of a small box of candy and the buttons are the size of quarters.
So who orders a shirt like this? Well, usually people who order one need it as a display for a trade show or some other exhibit. One customer ordered the "small" and more manageable 12XL size shirt to hang inside their retail shop. Another group of customers ordered these huge shirts as corporate gifts for government-to-government exchanges. Since demand is so low for a specialty item like this, these shirts are not cut and manufactured like the regular shirts. They are cut and sewn by hand, old-school style.
