Featured Post: How to Shop Big and Tall Mens Jeans

We at Denim Therapy are always talking about finding the perfect fit and style for people of any shape and size.  Let’s clarify a couple of things: when companies call themselves “big and tall,” it means they offer clothing for tall men, men who are just huge all-around, and stout men.  Think about those brawny or towering athletic types!  These size terms are often referred to as “extended sizes” or “outsize,” because they don’t fall within the “average” size range of stock that most retailers would carry.

Here’s an example of sizing options:

  • Inseams range from an extra short 27″ to a tall 36″ length.
  • Waistbands may start at 34″ around, and up to a 54″ waist.
  • And if the retailer does it right, they’ll also offer jeans that have larger waistbands and longer inseams—just bigger all around.

In the U.K., big and tall mens clothing retailer Jacamo, offers a fashion forward one-stop shopping experience with jeans moderately priced from £40.00 to £65.00.  In the U.S., large retail chains like Banana Republic have also expanded into the big & tall mens denim sector, and most other popular retailers only offer “tall” sizes (read: tall and slim).
