The holiday season is in full swing and while the Amazons of the world have tons of products, small businesses could use your help. We put together a list of 8 big & tall small businesses that you should know about and support.
Since 2018, Montreal-based One Bone has been on a mission to make clothes that “fit the hard to fit man better than ever.” With t-shirts, tanks, long-sleeve shirts, and hoodies (like the one pictured above) available in sizes XL – 8X, it looks like they’re accomplishing that mission. As One Bone founder Adam Greenberg told us in an interview, starting with t-shirts was a no-brainer because there were no options on the market that fit his needs. Shop their streetwear-influenced collection now at their website.
When it comes to big & tall clothing subscription boxes, The Winston Box is the O.G. They were probably the first business catering to the big & tall audience in this way. Each Winston Box features 2-3 items curated by stylists and delivered to your door, starting at $75 per month. Complete a style profile and they’ll take care of the rest.

Bear Skn makes comfortable underwear for big guys in a variety of colors and prints with sizes to 6XL. Whether you’re looking for briefs, boxers, jocks, or even socks, they have some good looking skivvies for you. Check out their Harvest Backwoods print, or see everything the brand has to offer at the Bear Skn website.
Mahrzad Lari knows that there aren’t enough big & tall options on the market focusing on both fit and style. This is why he started Wide the Brand, his clothing line that focuses on making clothing specifically for (you guessed it) wide men first. After a very successful fundraising campaign, Lari and his Canada-based team got to work making on-trend clothing specifically tailored to bigger bodies with sizes XL – 6X. Shop their shirts, outerwear, pants, jumpsuits, and accessories at their website.
The fact that Good Counsel’s big & tall styling service offers sizes to 10XL is reason enough to take a look, but all the stylish clothing they offer really seals the deal. Fill out a style profile to share your tastes, budget, and sizes, and a stylist will take it from there. When your box arrives, try everything on, keep what you like and send back what you don’t. You’re only charged for what you keep. Get 50% off your first box with code: GC50PCT.
There aren’t many plus size gender neutral clothing options on the market, and TomboyX is working to change that. Founders Fran and Naomi had a goal to make underwear that “any body could feel comfortable in, regardless of where they fell on the size or gender spectrum.” With a wide assortment of underwear, socks, swimwear, tees, and accessories ranging in size from 3XS – 6XL, it looks like they’re accomplishing that mission. Check them out for yourself at their website.
Big Boy Bamboo makes high quality big & tall bamboo tees for big men (3X – 8X), tall men (1XLT – 4XLT), and smaller men (S – 2XL). Most t-shirts you purchase either feel soft or last forever. Big Boy Bamboo tees do both. Founder Andrew DiMino knows that big guys are hard on their clothing, so he made a shirt that stands up to just about anything you can throw at it. See for yourself at their website.
Fat Trunk Jeans believes everyone should feel comfortable and look good in their jeans. That’s why the company is making jeans based on a pattern designed from a size 54 fit model – something rarely seen in big & tall clothing. This results in a far more comfortable, better fitting product. A unique blend of cotton, spandex, and polyester offer stretch but help Fat Trunk Jeans keep their shape over time. Choose from indigo blue or the new black jeans with sizes from 38 – 60 waist at their website.
