Nowadays, many department stores cater to the big and tall man, and online it couldn't be easier browsing for exactly what you want.
Fashion tips for big and tall men:
Need a hand with choosing the best look for your size? Here are some fashion tips that may help:
• Always choose clothes that are carefully tailored. That means in summer avoiding oversized loose fitting clothes that tend to make you look bigger than you are. In winter, opt for lightweight wool coats, and when it comes to sweaters avoid bulky knits and go for cardigans or extra sleak cashmere for a cleaner look.
• For tall men, single-breasted three button suits are ideal for the office or more formal occasions. Extra long ties (61-63 inches in length, and available in big & tall shops) will also help solve the problem tall men usually have with 'norma'l ties falling way too short.
• For big and tall men, pants should always be tailored. This is to avoid a baggy look that is only accentuated by your sheer size! For bigger men with a wider girth, pleated pants give you more room and offers a far superior look and fit.
