Hats for big heads

Mr. Palmer wants to know: Obviously I’m big or I wouldn’t be here. I’m about 5’9 and weigh around 265. My problem is that I have no clue as to what  kind of hat fits us bigger guys. I’m so tired of always wearing a baseball hat and I want a different look. What are y’all’s opinions?

I’m a hat enthusiast, so we’ve covered big hats for big guys in the past. One of our favorite places to shop for hats in a variety of styles is Goorin Bros. They make a ton of hats for every size and shape of head, plus they offer them in extended sizes. See also: Brixton’s fall headwear collection.

Big and tall men's jeans are hard to find

Heavymuffintop asked: Hey, I gotta know where guys with a waist over 40 (mine is 42-44) FIND PANTS! Like, nice tailored ones that aren’t super baggy and make my butt look good. I’d prefer a skinny jean/chino style if possible. All I’ve been able to find are american eagle jeans. HELP?

(Matthew was kind enough to take on this question:) This is an easy one. Seven for all Mankind go up to 42. True Religion up to 44. Lucky Jeans  up to 42. But my tip for anyone, no matter the size, is get your jeans tailored. $60 bucks in hemming and having them take in the thighs and leg will make you wear the jeans even more, getting more for your money. I take my old jeans in to have the hem/cut refined as the styles change. All of my bootcuts have been changed to straight leg for about $30. Way cheaper than buying new.

Um. So when are y'all gonna launch that chubstr dating site? Hmm? You can't just show us all these men and then whisk them away to handsome land, leaving us to ponder who they are and where they've gone.

I've shopped old navy and seems like they are one of the only people that try remotely to cater to plus size mens clothing, however i find their jeans fit wonderful through the thigh area but not so much through the legs... i wear a 46 to where the jeans fit they look good, but i have found that the leg area they use too much fabric... even when I've tried their slim & skinny jeans. I just wish that they would test more and try making them look more tailored, without them being to tight or to big through the leg. I feel like a lot of stores really don't pay attention to this side of the size spectrum, probably because it costs them money. You don't see very many extended sizes in store for some reason and what you do find a lot of the time is over sized generic clothing basically drapes which seems like they guessed at what the size it might look like. Although stores like Casual Male XL has decent clothing... and you can find most extended sizes, its completely over priced, and since I'm young i do feel like they don't have styles current with younger generations, feel sorta like shopping with my dad. Although  it might seem like I'm bitter, not gonna lie kinda am I'll take what i can get and make it work, just wish some of these companies would pay us big guys and gals a little more attention and give us something stylish current and with a great fit!
