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:
- Nordstrom Big and Tall Slim Fit Jeans: Choose from 8 items in your size from Levi’s, Buffalo Jeans, Polo Ralph Lauren, and more. The least expensive of the bunch is the Mavi Jeans ‘Jake’ Slim Fit (ripped NY vintage), at $44.
- Perry Ellis Big and Tall Slim Fit Jeans: You’ll like this – Perry Ellis offers two pairs of jeans in a slim fit for only $30 sweet dollars. The Big and Tall Black Rinse Slim Fit Denim Pant and the Dark Indigo Rinse Slim Fit Jean are available to sizes 52 & 40 respectively. It’d be difficult to beat that price.
Hopefully this helps. If these aren’t what you’re looking for, let us know and we’ll offer a few more options.
