Where to find a big and tall flannel shirt

Finding a big and tall flannel shirt

Thehomienicck asked: where the best place to get a flannel (3x)?
Luckily, flannel in extended sizes is pretty easy to come by. You can get a Lands’ End for big & tall flannel shirt with sizes to 4X, Destination XL for more classic flannel shirts with sizes to 7X, or Kohl’s for more contemporary flannel shirts with sizes to 4XB. Prices run the spectrum, with some shirts starting around $9.

Not enough flannel for you? Try Cabela’s (sizes to 5X), Macy’s (to 5X), and the awesome Duluth Trading Co, with flannel shirts in sizes to 4X.

Shipton & Heneage Velvet Slipper

Shipton & Heneage Velvet Slipper – available in extended widths

Nathan asked: I was wondering if you knew if velvet slippers were wider than most shoes. I’m a big guy that wears a 12w shoe, but can’t seem to find out if there are any velvet slippers made for guys with wider feet or if they were wide enough for someone of my size. I’ve read your article with Corbin Chamberlin and saw that he likes del toro slippers, but again wasn’t sure if they were custom to his foot or if his foot was wide and it didn’t matter since the slipper is wide. Anyways, sorry for the long rambling message. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Love the site. Very informative.
Good question Nathan. There just aren’t a lot of great options for velvet slippers in extended widths. If price is of no concern, take a look at Shipton & Heneage. Their Club and Society Velvet Slipper runs for $299, and is made to your exact requirements – including width. They have a variety of slippers, including a few more constructed from velvet for $595.

anthonymg Same here. Sizes run the spectrum since they're not universal, so sometimes a 42 fits and sometimes a 46 fits. I feel you on being on the line - you can't go to a lot of the mainstream stores and find what you're looking for, but you also can't find the styles you want at B&T unless you really search. Have you checked out Nordstrom.com or Macys.com? Both offer sizes to something like 60 waist and 5X shirts with styles from well known brands. I've been really happy with what I'm finding at those places. Hope this helps!
Very handsome.

Chubstr,  I find that Sizes vs fitment to be wide open when it comes to clothes for my body type.  I am 6'3" 320lbs  Which for my style ends up being a 40"x32" waist slim fit,low rise jean and anything from a 2XLT to a 4X depending on the cut of the shirt.  See the problem a guy like me has is what I call the "in-betweener"  I can't shop at most normal stores because everything is "FAT man in a little shirt" and then stepping into a Big and tall store (read: Conservative and Frumpy) and I'm the guy that is now tall enough, but not wide enough. Destination XL has done a good job re-branding themselves with more fashionable clothes, but they still are not fashion forward enough for me.
anthonymg Thanks for the comment Anthony! If you can tell us what your sizes are, we can point you in the right direction. We definitely try to feature clothing in sizes as large as we can find them available, but sometimes they are difficult to find. You'll see a lot of options on the site that go to 5X or 6X. This particular post is a reader photo submission, so this guy has shared specifically what he's wearing and where he got it, which isn't always available in every size. Since it's a reader photo submission, the clothing is based on the size of the gent in the photo. Hope this helps! Check out our resources section and feel free to tell us your sizes and what specifically you're looking for and we'll help you out. Thanks for checking out Chubstr!
Werd!  6'3" 320lbs seems to be to big for most of the fashion that I am finding here.  To big, yet to small for "Big and Tall"
