Shirts and pants you can get tailor made. I'll rely on others others with experience for info and directions. There are at least three places where you can have shoes made to your size(near Tuol Sleng). Again I will rely on others since I live rurally and wear flip flops perennially.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

Shoes bigger than US 10 are virtually non existent here. St 350 near 143 has the cobblers. Good for work and dress shoes, but they won't make sneakers.

The legit brand shoe shops might have larger sizes; I've never checked. If you do find any post up the location.

Try fb "jeans bank" for jeans, and the export shops surrounding Russian market on st 155

What is size 13 Euro equivalent? 46?

Best to work it out and just ask the sellers at Russian Market, maybe they can find some for you

Aeon, and some of the mall's shops, have big sizes. Big prices too.

weird thing about Cambodia. loads of the men are big, but the shops only stock small sizes. Thailand is nearly as bad. Ask a big tuktuk driver whre he gets his clothes from. There must be a "big peoples clothes street" somewhere in PP, just like bed street and electric street

I find it interesting that we have 2 systems: metric and Imperial, which cover the entire world, and include such weird things as relative humidity, which relatively few people access, but try buying a pair of shoes, and all of a sudden no genius ever considered a standard sizing.

There is some ancient evil afoot...
