Buying a Big & Tall Leather Jacket

Twitter follower @aaalisson asked us the following:

Where could I get an XXL leather jacket?

Thanks for the question, aaalisson. You’re in luck – there are quite a few places you can go to find leather jackets in a variety of styles and sizes. Since it’s summer here in the Western Hemisphere, there isn’t as much of an emphasis on this kind of outerwear, so you can find some pretty decent deals if you search hard enough. Here are a few places we’d recommend you take a look at first:

Wilsons: The ARE the leather experts, after all. Take a look at the big and tall section to choose from 10 types of leather jacket. Wilsons offers sizes up to XXL tall.

Torre Big & Tall: Specializing in men’s big and tall apparel, Torre offers leather and suede jackets to 7XL.

Orvis: If you wade through the suede and sheepskin, you can find leather jackets that look like they could take quite a bit of abuse. Great if you’re going to be out and about in it. Sizes up to XXL. If you don’t mind navigating a pretty ugly website, you can take a look at what Big Tall Direct has to offer in sizes up to 5XL.

Overstock: With 120 options ranging from XL to 3XL, there’s probably something here that will fit your tastes.

John Varvatos: It’s a bit on the pricey side, but it’s awesome. If you can pull off the greaser look, this one’s a no-brainer. Available in XL and XXL.

Mr. Porter: You’d be hard pressed to find better jackets than what Mr. Porter has to offer. Of course, with high quality come high prices, so be prepared to spend a pretty penny on leather jackets here. Available up to XXL.

This should give you a few to choose from. If none of these work for you, don’t forget to check the usual places, like Amazon (to 5XL) and Ebay (up to 10XL).
