Just Married!

Finding Big and Tall Plaid Shirts

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).

Tracking Down Affordable Big and Tall Slim Fit Jeans

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.

      Hahaha – I think we forgot that one this time around, Gary Shade!

      I recently started getting the “tall” sized shirts. There’s plenty to tuck in, and I actually wear a smaller size now. I was buying shirts that were a little too big because I thought it would help them stay tucked in, but they’re all pretty similar in length. The smaller, taller versions are awesome, though, because they fit better *and* stay tucked in. They feel great.

      This is some great insight! Thanks for sharing.

    • Conor Davitt

      No problem. I don’t know why it took me so long to figure it out, but I’m glad I did! 🙂

    • Libby Whiting

      Not creepy at all. Let’s remember sexual harassment goes both ways.

    • David Reinhart

      I don’t want to spoil it for your readers, but the last tip you share is what I’ve been doing for years! Totally works.

    • Ryan J. Newhard

      Brand recommendation: Banana Republic, because they put a button hole at the bottom of their button down shirts where the spare buttons are. Helps keep the tuck look neat for us tall/smooshy fellows.

      It’s not creepy at all….

      Lucky us girls have the option of body suits or tunics. Can’t you get extra long tees?

    • Ken Morey

      You don’t have to keep it tucked in for my sake.U0001f60d

    • Hollie Pemble-Simminger

      Shop at the “tall” stores. They carry the exact same sizes with extra material. That button in the bottom of your shirt? Use it. But honestly, who is looking at your untucked shirt when we can stare at your beautiful face and hands? Not me 🙂
