Big & Tall Men's Size Guide

Our team of experts have created a big and tall mens size guide which allows you to find the best fit for you. We understand that a 6XL in one brand may be a 7XL in another - so we’ve taken the guesswork out of shopping for big and tall clothing and have listed each item of clothing true to fit.

Step 1: Measuring correctly

 

Collar size

Measure around your neck where the collar of a shirt will naturally fall. Remember to have the tape measure as tight as a comfortably fastened collar would be, without it being restrictive.

 

Chest size

Measure around your chest going under your armpits and across your nipples as a guide. This should ensure that you measure the fullest part of your chest.

 

Waist size

Measure around your waist where you intend to wear the item of clothing. You may choose to wear this either under your stomach, or over it, depending on how you find it most comfortable. Be sure to always keep this in mind when measuring your waist.

 

Leg length

Measure the inside leg length from your crotch down to your ankle areas where you want the hem of your trousers to sit. Remember to keep your leg as straight as possible for the perfect fit.

 

Step 2: Finding your perfect fit

Don’t refer to the size of the clothing itself, but to your size. For example, if you are a 56” chest, choose a 4XL and the clothing will fit!

Always remember

 

Different brand, different size. You will find that different brands have different size guides, so always check the specific size guide on the item’s page for more details. This is found by clicking the size guide located next to the item description.

 

Get to know your big and tall clothing brands. You may be surprised to find you are one size in one brand and a different size in another - please don’t be disheartened by this, it is completely normal. 

 

Don’t be afraid to try something. We offer free exchanges with your order, so swapping something for a different size couldn’t be easier!

 

Not sure what to go for? If you find that you are between sizes, we recommend sizing up - you are always welcome to exchange it for a smaller size. 



Don’t forget

Our size guides don’t refer to the size of the garment itself, but your actual body size. If you have any questions, we have a live chat 9am-5pm Monday - Friday, or call our friendly team on 01724 845 100.
