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.

General admission tickets to Big Fat Flea will run you $10 (plus fees). If you want to look through the pickings before everyone else, purchase VIP tickets for $25. You’ll get 30 sweet minutes of unadulterated shopping before the doors are open to everyone.

If you’re wondering what kind of clothes you’ll be able to find at Big Fat Flea 2014, take a look:

The slim fit jeans were great, at a 46x32 they're a bit long for me, but bunch nicely or can be rolled. And they're not baggy enough that I end up stepping on the cuffs. And now I can ride my bike without having to roll my jeans up past my knees. I ordered two pair in my initial order and just went back and ordered three more, these are going to completely replace my Levis. (They stopped stocking slimmer fits in big sizes about a year ago it seems.)

The shirts were pretty much a complete bust for me, though. I generally wear a 2XLT, and they didn't have any of their shirts available in Tall. Besides that, the 2XL shirts (short sleeve button up and T-Shirts) seem to run a bit small, none of them worked for me length wise or tightness wise. I just ordered some 3XLs with the jeans and we'll see how those work out.

I did notice this shopping round that a lot of items were out of stock or showing low stock. Hopefully this means that they're seeing good demand? I'll shoot some pictures over once the next shipment comes in.


Well, I'll definitely follow up once the order comes in, but the selection was phenomenal. Just place the biggest clothing order I think I've ever placed online... So much good stuff!
