If Old Navy was a little more consistent with their Tall sizes they'd be my favorite. But as it is, it's a crapshoot when I get XLT shirts from, sometimes they're cut as long or in some cases shorter than the plain old XL shirts (in the same style). But they're good about returns (when I bring the shirts to compare...they can't really argue lol)

Yeah, sizing consistency is CRAZY at Old Navy. But they're great for cheap basics.

Penningtons. I usually shop in store because of my body type. I have to try on everything. I tend to shop when they have the reduced racks up and I pick up $60 pants for $10-$20 instead. Their quality is great! The clothes last a lot longer than Wal-Mart or Zellers for this cheap shopper.

I recently did my first on line shopping with Penningtons. I've lost some weight and need some more t-shirts for the warmer weather. They had a buy one and get one free promo and I selected 4 t-shirts. I didn't mind the shipping because even though the promo was also in store, I live out in the middle of nowhere. It's a 45 drive to either of the 2 Penningtons near me and I didn't want to risk that there would no t-shirts I liked (I like the bling and patterns) or in my size.
