How can a company that makes such [size=300]BIG[/size] watches make such small shirts?

Here's a quick picture of my 5-year old son wearing an adult LARGE Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge T-shirt.
It didn't fit me, so he wanted it to sleep in as a "Big" shirt.
This morning while having my coffee, I realized that it isn't really even that big on him...



Now the watches...he's still got a bit of growing to do to obtain the perfect fit there...



Big watches, small shirts...Panerai!



Have a GREAT Sunday guys!

Cheers...

Michael

After he got the shirt was he able to convince you that he needs the Fiddy for a while?

I suppose that could be "Large" in other parts of the world...



Trust me, I get that Americans in general could all stand to lose a few (certainly myself included ).
But really, if people in Europe wear these as a regular practice:
A) Their shirts are way too small for them
- OR -
B) They are "diminutive"

Since Panerai isn't in the clothing biz, they probably make sizes to fit the world. And that for most American guys translates to small

Their fat watches are perfect for the U.S., LOL. Course, I'm kidding, I too could lose some poundage.

I was just making a comment on the fact that guys that I know that really work out and are in great shape - where a US Large might even be too big for them, there is just NO WAY they could wear this shirt.

Kate Moss...might fit.
