Answerland is our reader Q+A feature. Send us your questions about plus size men’s style, grooming, travel, entertainment, and just about anything else, and we might just answer it here. This week, we’re helping a reader figure out where to shop for big and tall clothes when visiting Rome this summer, with the help of a pro.

John asks: I’m visiting Rome in a couple weeks, and am looking for stores that carry sizes that fit the more stately man. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Though I don’t have direct experience shopping for big and tall clothes in Rome, I know someone who does. Alessandro Carella, founder of Italian big men’s style blog, Uomini Di Peso has been showing people around the world that big guys have style. I asked him for advice on where to shop while visiting Rome.

“There aren’t a lot of big and tall shops in Italy, but Rome is an exception. There is one that I prefer, called Pitran. You’ll find a variety of brands there, and sizes from 46 – 84, which translates to what you expect from U.S. big men’s brands.”
