Holy cow. If you think sewing patterns for larger WOMEN are sparse, try finding a pattern for a man who wears a 3X!

I have a friend who just got a gig in a new band, and I'd REALLY like to make a couple of stage-worthy shirts for him. I'm thinking classic bowling shirt style. I've checked my usual suspects -- Simplicity, Butterick, McCall's and Vogue -- and none of them have what I'm looking for (or even close).

Anyone have any suggestions?

Maybe you could get a hold of one of his shirts that fits well and carefully take it apart and us it for a pattern?  Then you could put the original back together.

How good are you at making adaptations/adjustments?
