George Richards: Behind the Brand

Behind the Brand looks at the companies making clothes with bigger bodies in mind. In this episode, we headed to George Richards Big & Tall Menswear in Toronto, Canada, to check out their selection and get some new looks.

George Richards knows big & tall

For over 50 years, the folks at George Richards have been outfitting men in stylish, great-fitting clothes in their size. With a wide variety of brands, the company makes it easy to create looks in whatever style you choose.

Daniel is a George Richards Style Expert AND a model for the company!

Pros who can help

Sometimes, it’s nice to get a little help when shopping for clothes. That’s where Daniel comes in. As a George Richards Style Expert, he makes finding the perfect look easy. Daniel showed me around the store and helped me find three looks perfect for my needs. His help streamlined the shopping process and made finding new outfits I loved super easy.

Daniel not only works for George Richards, but he’s also one of their models! It’s not often that one of the faces of the company knows as much about the product and fit as he does.

Get my looks for yourself

I wanted to put George Richards to the test, so I asked Daniel to help me create three looks, each in different styles. Here’s what we found:

Look 1: Stylish yet casual

I wanted a look that was put together yet comfortable and casual. This one fits the bill! With the Projek Raw Plaid Short Sleeve Sport Shirt, the Ultimate Space V-Neck Tee from Britches, and the Classic Fit Straight Leg Jeans from Silver Jeans, I had an outfit that fit me well and looked great.

Look 2: Office-ready

If you need a Casual Friday look, George Richards Big & Tall has what you need. This Polo Ralph Lauren Long Sleeve Oxford shows that you mean business, while the Britches Ultimate Twill Pants are the perfect mix of dress pants and jeans. This is a go-to look that works as well at office staff meetings as it does for a remote work day at the coffee shop.
