DALLAS - Big Tex is back where he belongs. The 55-foot tall cowboy returned to his rightful spot Friday morning sporting his new and improved Dickies shirt that debuted last year.

Things are said to be bigger in Texas and that is the case with Big Tex. Since 2012, he's grown three-feet, his boot size has gone from a 70 to 96 and his waistline has ballooned nearly four feet.

You can say howdy to Big Tex at the State Fair from September 25 - October 18.
