Though July officially commemorates Body Acceptance Month, let’s be honest: finding clothes that complement your body type is a year-round task, regardless of your shape or size. One group that can attest to this is the plus-size community, and while there are readily available and heavily advertised options out there for women in this space, the same can’t be said for plus-size men.
Often left out of the conversation, plus-size men share the same challenges when it comes to finding clothes that not only fit well but are also high quality. While the term “plus-size men’s clothing” may not be often said, there is another phrase that widely takes its place: Big & Tall.
Several retailers from casual everyday stores like ASOS and GAP to higher-end options like Suitsupply and Hugo Boss feature men’s Big & Tall sections that, unfortunately, are often hidden throughout these websites. This extensive list lifts the veil and shows you which retailers’ Big & Tall menswear collections are actually worth your money.
ASOS is one of the most size-inclusive retailers for all genders, but its men’s Plus Size section is truly a gem. Unlike several other stores, the men’s plus-size collection isn’t hidden and is clearly outlined in the standard men’s “clothing” dropdown menu.
There are currently over 1,400 styles with products ranging from coats, jackets and sweaters to tees, jeans and shorts. Sizes go all the way up to 6XL Long, and shoppers love that each piece is shown on a plus-size model to display exactly how it would fit.
It’s no secret that Banana Republic is a premier global brand for modern men’s and women’s clothing. If your personal style is on the simpler and more minimal end of the spectrum, this brand’s right up your alley.
While Banana Republic doesn’t specifically produce clothing for plus-size men, it has a wide range of pieces from chinos and shorts to shirts and polos that come in tons of sizes, especially for tall men.
When Bonobos first burst onto the scene, the brand quickly gained a massively positive reputation for its comfortable and well-constructed pants. From casual to formal options, shoppers just couldn’t get enough. And now, they’re all available in extended sizes across the board.
This “extended sizes” collection includes everything from the brand’s best-selling pants to jeans, shirts, sweaters, suiting and even swimsuits. Pant sizes go up to a 54 waist, while sweaters and polos go up to 3XL.
4. Boohoo Men’s
Similar to ASOS, the Boohoo Men’s section is a one-stop shop for basically any style. Whether you’re trendy, sporty, casual or preppy, it’s likely that you’ll find something you like from this brand. What shoppers love most, however, is the affordable price tag that comes with all of these pieces.
And not only is Boohoo wallet-friendly, but it’s also size-inclusive. The brand caters to both plus-size and tall men with its massive selection of shirts, tees, shorts, pants, outerwear, underwear and even suits. Sizes go up to 5XL.
Carhartt is a family-owned American apparel brand that’s known for its workwear for manual laborers. Over the years, it’s become a trendy staple for everyday wear, especially during the colder months. The clothes are super durable and comfortable due to their heavy-duty threads, tough materials and reinforced rivets built to withstand the elements.
The brand’s men’s Big & Tall section is one of the best on the market, offering a huge range of hoodies, jackets, tees, shirts, jeans and even overalls that fit plus-size male bodies perfectly.
Champion has had one of the wildest comebacks in recent memory. The brand that was once reduced to “your dad’s fishing get-up” is now one of the trendiest labels in casual fashion. Champion’s clothing is also extremely comfortable and perfect for active lifestyles.
Its Big & Tall range offers hoodies, tees, sweatpants, sweatshirts and more in sizes up to XLT (extra-large tall) and 6XL.
Cutter and Buck is a brand heralded for perfecting the “comfy classics” clothing genre. Whether you’re lounging around the house, traveling, playing golf, hiking or at brunch, these pieces were built to last while being effortlessly stylish. Cutter and Buck’s pieces are also thoughtfully engineered with features like moisture-wicking fabrics, stretch and UPF for sun protection.
One of the brand’s most popular and widely successful collections is its Big & Tall range, which has everything from polos, shirts, tees, pants, shorts, sweaters, jackets and more. For added convenience and inclusivity, it’s separated into two size ranges: one for plus-size men and another for tall men.
If you’re into more traditional pieces like smart button-up shirts, the upscale London-founded brand Farah is right up your alley. Inspired by subcultures in the underground London scene, Farah, unlike most European clothing brands, boasts sizes that range up to 4XL.
Our favorite pieces include the Brewer Slim Fit Striped Organic Cotton Oxford Shirt and the Elena Casual Fit Short Sleeve Palm Print Organic Cotton Shirt.
A staple in American fashion for decades, GAP remains one of the most iconic yet affordable clothing brands in the world. While it unfortunately doesn’t have a wide assortment of plus-size men’s clothing, it does have a dedicated “Tall” range created for men who are 6-feet and taller.
Few brands do affordable basics as well as Hanes. There’s a reason why this 1901-founded brand has remained a staple in the loungewear and casualwear spaces for decades.
Hanes pieces are perfect for lounging around the house and even pair well with jeans and sneakers. Plus, the brand’s Big & Tall range is a cut above the rest, as it features roomier fits and longer lengths than its standard pieces.
Our favorite Hanes piece is actually available on Amazon. If you’re looking for a classic white tee that’s roomy, comfy and not baggy, the Hanes Men’s Short Sleeve Beefy-T is 48% off on Amazon for a pack of two. These range from small to 6XL.
11. Hugo Boss
You don’t hear about many German clothing brands with inclusive sizing. Well, luxury fashion label Hugo Boss is repping the region well with its surprisingly size-inclusive Big & Tall men’s range.
This sleek, upscale collection includes everything from basic tees and trousers to high-end shirts and suiting. Each piece in this line is tailored to provide the perfect fit for every man who’s not a “standard” size. The Hugo Boss Big & Tall collection goes up to a 6XL.
Levi’s is arguably the most recognizable brand in the commercial denim fashion industry. In fact, the label has been a pioneer in this space since the 1850s.
Over the years, the Levi’s brand has only continued to expand, with the already extensive men’s section receiving its own Big & Tall extension — and it’s not skimpy at all. The collection includes jeans, jackets, shirts and shorts that are both stylish and size-inclusive. The tops go up to a size 5XL, and the bottoms go up to a 58 waist.
You’re likely most familiar with Puma‘s large footwear collection, but the brand’s sportswear and casualwear pieces are worth checking out. In fact, the popular activewear brand firmly believes in inclusive sizing, which makes its size-inclusive Big & Tall range no surprise at all.
From sweatpants and tees to hoodies and sweatsuits, all pieces in this collection go up to a size 5XLT.
14. River Island
UK-based fashion brand River Island was founded in the early 1940s and, over the years, has become a go-to affordable option for plus-size men. The brand’s range of Big & Tall men’s clothing and accessories are some of the most popular among Gen Z and millennial shoppers.
The clothing goes up to 4XL, and the main reason why so many shoppers love this affordable brand is because of its trendy yet classic silhouettes and designs.
15. Rodd & Gunn
This New Zealand brand prides itself on producing quality pieces that are made to stand the test of time. Rodd & Gunn’s philosophy of ethically sourcing its fabrics and constructing its clothing with a thoughtful and size-inclusive goal in mind is what makes it a promising underdog in this race.
Rodd & Gunn’s Big & Tall range includes shirts, polos, shorts, jackets, chinos, loungewear and swimwear. Sizes go up to 3XL in tops and 42 in bottoms.
Quality men’s suiting at an agreeable price point is hard to come by. Usually, there’s no middle ground — the options are either extremely cheap in construction or overtly pricey. Dutch suitmaker Suitsupply sought to change this and, while doing so, provided larger sizes in high-end Italian fabrics.
Suit jackets go up to 50L, and trousers go up to 44L or 4XL, depending on the design. Plus, you can also create your own custom suit in-store or online using the built-in guide.
17. Tommy Bahama
Tommy Bahama was created for those who love the beach so much, they never want to leave. Dress like you’re on vacation around the clock with this apparel that’s easy, clean and vibrant. The pieces come in playful colors that are perfect for summer and made of lightweight, breathable fabrics.
The brand also has a wide range of tees, polos, shirts, jackets, pants, shorts, and of course, swimwear (because you’re on vacation, remember?) that are all specifically designed for Big & Tall men. Regular sizes go up to 5XL, while tall sizes go up to 4XLT.
Like Levi’s, Wrangler is best known for its jeans. However, the 1904-founded brand has so much more to offer, and it all comes with the signature American cowboy aesthetic threaded firmly throughout.
In addition to high quality and durable fabrics and designs, Wrangler excels in its men’s Big & Tall department, which includes shirts, jeans and shorts in the muted colors that you would associate with the brand: think white, navy, gray and chambray.
Sizes go up to 5XL in tops and 46 for bottoms, with lengths going up to XLT. Our favorite pieces include the Cowboy Cut Original Fit Jeans and the Cowboy Cut Firm Finish Long Sleeve Western Snap Solid Work Shirt.
