Banana Republic is helping the chubby guy find clothing in his size and style with their big and tall section. This department has been available for a while, but it might not be the first store you’d think of when shopping for clothes. You’ll find everything from casual shirts, polos and tees, to pieces from the Mad Men collection available in sizes to XXL/XXL Tall in tops to 44 in waist.
If you’re looking for mainstream luxury clothing, browse the Banana Republic website (their largest sizes are sometimes only available online) and you’ll find a variety of items to fit your style. The site offers sections that cater to specific needs, such as work, business casual, customer favorites, and even the slim fit shop. You can also check the sale section for discounted big and tall men’s clothing, but if you’re bargain hunting, Banana Republic probably isn’t for you.
A great feature you’ll find on the Banana republic site is the looks section, which presents you with styles they’ve put together that you can easily replicate. Now that it’s fall, they’re featuring sweater style with a variety of v-necks, cardigans, half/full zips, and pullovers to choose from. I’m partial to the Full-Button v-neck cardigan in grey heather, myself. If you’re shopping for your fall style, keep Banana republic in mind. With over 600 locations, there’s probably one near you. If they don’t have your size in-store, it’s still a good way to figure out what looks you like so that you can order them online.
