For plus-size and taller men, finding clothing that fits well and offers contemporary style can be a struggle. The sad reality is that most retailers don’t provide extended or “big-and-tall” sizes—that’s anything beyond 2XL or tops and bottoms with longer lengths—and if they do, the selection is often limited.
If you’re in need of a formal shirt that fits a larger chest, pants with some extra length, or jeans that cover wider calves, we’ve rounded up some of the top retailers with extended men’s sizes. For those who are big, tall, or big and tall, the following places are rife with modern clothes that fit those frames.
Asos is a one-stop shop for trendy clothes at accessible prices. Best of all, the retailer has an inclusive size range, from shirts up to a size 6XL, to pants with 48-inch waists to suiting up to a size 58, with many options available in long and tall variations. Whether it’s a new pair of skinny jeans, a cozy insulated coat, or fashion-forward patterned shirts, there’s something for everyone at Asos. Be sure to check out their Plus Size menswear page to peruse all of their stylish offerings.
