Nicholas Meissner started this petition to Old Navy

Hi all,

My name is Nicholas Meissner and I am a student at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. The main goal that I hope to achieve through this petition is the creation of larger sizes within Old Navy for men, as they have done for women. Many men nationwide struggle with obesity and being overweight and by adding larger sizes into Old Navy for these men they will have more options regarding their clothing options. Alongside this, many men around the world struggle with mental health issues that are not addressed by themselves because of their "manliness". Hopefully, this addition of larger sizes for men and the use of the phrase "plus-size" can help these men feel more accepted in our modern-day society, along with providing more options for men's clothing.

A lot of overweight men are required to go to stores like DXL for their clothing, but there is no reason why stores like Old Navy should not provide men with larger sizes than 3XL. In my process of trying to speak to Old Navy about this issue, I have messaged over 11 people who are higherups of the company via LinkedIn and I have direct messaged Old Navy's Twitter account. So far I have had my LinkedIn account visited by one of the 11 people I messaged, with no message back, and the Twitter account basically told me to just go to their website for answers. Thus bringing me here, change.org.

I hope that this petition can help support overweight men with their mental health just as "plus-size" assisted overweight women. I also hope that you, the reader, think deeply about signing my petition, for many men may depend on it. Thank you for reading this, even if you do not care to sign it. Every person who reads this is another person who is informed on this issue.

Thank you,

Nicholas Meissner
