Attend Big Fat Flea in NYC

It’s that time of year again! Big Fat Flea, the all genders fatshion rummage sale and fabulous fat community event is taking place at NYU Law School (40 Washington Square South) in New York City on Sunday, May 4th, from 10:30am (11am for general admission) to 5:00pm. You’ll find gently used clothing in a variety of sizes available for much less than you’d pay in stores.

I am at the shorter end of the Big & Tall variety, and I find that Burlington Coat Factory meets most of my fashion needs with very reasonable prices.. They even have a tailor on property for alterations with fair rates.

That sweater is sweet!!! Like a boss!

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!
