A new season means a fresh start for yourself — which can include your fashion. As you pack away the heavy winter sweaters and long johns, you may be wondering what’s in store for you this season? If you’re a big and tall man, you may also have questions about what trends are hot right now for your size and stature. The great news is that there are a lot of options that will make you look great.
When clothing is made for your size and height, you will look your very best and exude confidence. We have everything from big and tall T-shirts to business casual essentials to keep you stylish in any situation this spring. So, what are the best men’s big and tall trends to try this spring? Here are some ideas for a closet refresh.
If you’re big and tall, your stature is a combination of tall and big sizes. Men who wear “tall” clothing are between 6′ 3″ – 6′ 7″ in height but wear standard sizes. Extra tall sizes then serve men who are between 6′ 8″ – 7′ 1.” If you’re in the “big” size category, your average clothing size is XL and above. However, your clothing will be made for men under 6’2”. So what do you do if you’re both above size XL and over 6’2” in height? Your answer lies in big and tall clothing.
Big and tall clothing can accommodate the long legs and torso, wide chest and hips, and long arms associated with men who are both large in body width and height. This category of clothing solves two problems at once — tugging at sleeves and hem the pants are too short and struggling with the pinch at your waist with shirts that are too tight. The results are worth the search for a custom fit. Big and tall clothing is designed for your body type, offering the most flattering shape and attractive fit for your weight and height combined. When you wear clothing that fits you, confidence just comes naturally. You can work, play, and live well knowing that you look and feel your very best.
When you shave the right fit for your body, all your outfits will come together. For instance, big and tall jeans have inseams and hems that are long enough to finally get rid of that Capri or “highwater” effect. To make things even better, you can also request custom hemming at checkout. So, if you’re a guy who is on the fence with big and tall or just big sizes, such as a man who is 6 ft 2, custom hemming your big and tall jeans will give you the right inseam and enough length of out being too long for you.
When it comes to tops, your fit is not as complicated. However, a custom fit can still go a long way. When you stock up on tops like men’s big and tall sweaters, it doesn’t hurt to take your sweater to the tailor if you’re in between sizes. This can also be helpful if you’re a big and tall guy who falls between XL and 2XL big but prefer big and tall proportions for the extra sleeve and torso length.
As a big and tall man, you can wear whatever color or pattern that calls out to you. However, if you want to stick to this year’s trends, dark and solid colors and micro prints are on the rise. The reason is that dark colors are sophisticated and easily match with other tops and bottoms. They are also good at smoothing out figures and creating balance with your outfits. Vertical stripes are slenderizing but also heightening, while polka dots and other micro prints can add some fun to your ensembles.
Your unique big and tall structure is an absolute win for springtime staples like big and tall men’s v-neck sweaters. V-necks are great at drawing the eye upward and creating a strong focal point at the top of your chest. This subtle effect balances your figure. Combine this with tucking in your shirt and a fresh leather belt to break up your outfit into sections. This plays up your height and enhances your broad chest — two aspects that make the big and tall look shine!
Big men have plenty of options when it comes to enhancing their figures and creating stylish outfits. Layering with a jacket is an incredibly flattering look for big and tall men. Leave your jacket open to create a continuous line from head to toe that makes your figure sleek and strong. If you need to look sharp for work, wear big and tall dress shirts under an open blazer. You can also mix and match with solid colors and prints such as wearing a flannel shirt over a solid color T-shirt.
We hope that these big and tall outfit styling trends will give you some inspiration for your upcoming spring wardrobe refresh!
