Maybe I'll just use a piece of parachute cord and cut off the excess as I get thinner. LOL!
Ha ha--that's funny--it'd be like Elly May Clampette and her piece of rope for a belt. I always used to buy those 72" web belts so you could easily keep letting them out. My leather belt now goes (literally) half-way around my side.
I do like to go closet shopping from time to time. Once I get down to a comfortable regular XL I've got a ton of clothes waiting. My upper chest is already XL (perhaps even L) but down around the belly is still 2XL. One of my summer goals is to be able to zip up my leather motorcycle jacket--it's a pretty snug size 40, IIRC.
