Honeystopthecar asked: Hey there! My boyfriend and I are celebrating our anniversary on March 10th, and I wanted to surprise him with a brand new button up shirt for the occasion. Do you folks know of any good retailers that sell button up plaid shirts in a 4X? I figured I should come to you guys, before I hit Google.
Thanks for the question! Lately I’ve been partial to Duluth Trading Co, and their well-constructed shirts. A number of them are available to 4X, and some of those are plaid. They’re worth a look – for their shirts and everything else they have to offer.
If you’re looking for something that’s a bit less workwear, and a bit more dress up – try Cutter and Buck or Ralph Lauren’s big and tall sport shirt section – both offering sizes to 6XB (or 6XL, if you need it).
Destruct0slinky asked: Speaking of jeans, do you know where I could find affordable slim-fit pairs of jeans online for bigger guys? (I wear a 40×30 if that helps)
I do indeed, my good man. Since affordable is subjective, I chose $75 or less as the budget and suggest the following in a 40 waist:
Hopefully this helps. If these aren’t what you’re looking for, let us know and we’ll offer a few more options.
Marlee Lambert asked: Searching for wedding attire for a big and tall man and photos of ACTUAL big and tall men wearing the attire. Help?!
It just so happens that we can give you some good suggestions on big and tall wedding attire. Check out our Big and Tall Summer Wedding Attire article, or Dressing for a Wedding – both offer creative and interesting options from Men’s Wearhouse, Indochino, and more. I definitely recommend taking a look at Indochino for made to order custom clothing that fits.
For more in-depth info on all things related to plus size weddings, check out our friends at Pretty Pear Bride. They usually focus on the plus size bride, but they do feature articles that are all about the groom. PLUS – you’ll find the photos you’re looking for. Be sure to take a look!
There is a big difference between big dude sizes. At a big and tall shop, the clothes fit better. Clothing lines at box stores are usually smaller than what they advertise. So what I'm saying is if target does this, they need to partner with a good big and tall company and not a fly by nite one.
I would check it out and probably buy for my husband being tall and chubby fashion is usually the last thing that crosses his mind so yea I'm all for more plus size clothing for men
That would really be great...target is really great for moms/families on a budget. I am fairly fashion savvy and about 90% percent of my AND my daughter's wardrobe comes from target. Now if we could only get dad in the mix!
I reached out to Target PR for a response, but haven't gotten one. I hope it's something they're considering!
It sounds like its a step in the right direction, but not quite what's needed. I'd like to see something similar done for gents - they'd sell SO MUCH of that stuff!
I actually liked SOME of their ava + Viv line...bought a fatkini and love it! Do wish they had men's line for my guy though.
It's a step forward, but honestly the Target line sucks (consensus among most plus people). We definitely need some mens lines though! My hubby is not high fashion, and is low maintenance, but even current fashion forward basics are hard to find!
