This week on Answerland, we’re helping a reader find the perfect big & tall winter coat. Quartermoose asks:
Do you have any recommendations for a basic men’s winter coat for big & tall guys?
Everyone has different needs when it comes to big & tall winter coats, so we’re going to run what I consider to be the basics. Here are a few brands to take a look at when shopping for a coat:
If you’re not taking a look at DXL for the perfect coat, you’re missing out. They run the spectrum of materials, styles and sizes (6XL & 64 jacket size), with tons of brands included. Be sure to take a look at the Synrgy, Cutter & Buck and PX Clothing winter coats available now for some of my favorite styles.
So you want something fashion forward that doesn’t break the bank? Take a look at what Boohoo has to offer in their big & tall coats and jackets section. There aren’t a ton, but the prices are right if you’re looking to save a buck. Available sizes seem to change regularly, but you’ll always find something to at least 4X.
Are you venturing out into the frozen tundra this winter? Maybe scaling Mt. Everest? Even if you just want to keep warm, Columbia has you covered with their big and tall coat selection. From fleece, to rain jackets, to Alpine Action jackets made to keep you toasty, you’ll find a variety of cold weather options with sizes to 6X.
Looking for basics? JCPenney is a good place to start. You’ll find 60+ coats and jackets available to 6X and sortable by things like warmth factor and occasion.
Many of you need outerwear that holds up to anything you throw at it. When you work out in it, you want something that will help you stay warm and dry. Carhartt has been doing exactly that with their big & tall workwear for a long, long time. You already know about their classic work jackets, they’ve been stepping it up in recent years with more modern looks that you’re sure to love. You’ll find products at Carhartt with sizes to 6X.
