We love finding new and interesting places to shop for clothing in extended sizes, and many of our international readers have asked for options outside of the U.S. Today, we bring you Northern Threads, an England based shop that also ships internationally. Michael from Northern Threads brings us two summer looks that will work for big guys. Read his article and see the photos – exclusively for Chubstr. 

Bruce has been kind enough to give over some column inches to us and since we’ve been following Chubstr for a while we were only too happy to oblige. When I say “us” I mean Northern Threads – we’re an independent men’s clothing store serving our loyal customer base in the north of England and reaching out worldwide online. We cater to men of all sizes – large and small –because style shouldn’t be restricted by size. We’ve had some great stock come through our doors recently and we’ve put together two key looks that should be gracing everyone’s wardrobe.

I grabbed hold of our online manager for a few minutes to snap a few images of him sporting brands in which you can find sizes of up to 4XL. We’ve put together a casual look and a formal one, so you’re covered on both bases.

Here we teamed a tipped collar Hugo Boss Green Patrick polo (in white) alongside regular fit ED47 Edwin denim jeans (try the Armani jeans for further extended sizes) and Hugo Boss Orange Keelo trainers. This outfit perfectly toes the line between smart and casual, holding you steady in any number of situations.

The second look is designed for a more suited and booted affair; great for going on a date or hitting a few bars. The shirt is a custom fit poplin stripe from the Polo Ralph Lauren range with a pair of Levi’s 271 tapered chinos in a smart navy. The perfect way to finish off any outfit is with a pair of hand crafted English brogues from Grenson, you see here their Stanley shoe.

Now’s the time to put together a new summer outfit, comprised of apparel that will see you through the whole year and hopefully many more to come.

Thanks for all the kind comments!  It was a fun day on set shooting with Parker & Pine.  These guys made a quality product!  I'm wearing them now!  I look forward to working with them and seeing what they come up with next!

Curtis Anthony Morrison - I think you might be in the wrong place if you think the goal of this (or any) of Chubstr's content is to encourage men to lose body fat and get in shape. You're certainly entitled to your opinion, but the website IS called Chubstr, after all.

This does not encourage men to lose body fat and get in shape at all.Body fat is far more appealing (in reasonable amounts and ideal proportion) on women.
