Oh geeze, you already listed DXL Dwes

Although this may be a good "sticky" thread, as Im sure several BHM/FFAs have questions on where to shop for Big and/or Tall mens.

DXL is alright for ordering online. In the store, they only go up to 60" waist.

This!

And 2 more complaints regarding the DXL commercial - and in logical consequence their business approach.

1) If they want to advertise their clothes, can't they at least tailor the presented outfits so they actually fit and flatter their (slightly heftier) models??
Like sports coats in the right proportional length? Or pants legs that don't look like potato sacks??

2) With their 'character switch' they're insinuating that BHMs all have the intellectual make up of simplistic pre-pubertarian boys.
Do they honestly think a big guy who dresses in a business suit envisions himself in a Superman cape???

Imo it's an example for the poorly veiled 'fat makes you imbecile' agenda - which alone would be a reason for me to boycott the store.

Walmart now has 4X Fruit-of-the-Loom tee shirts and 3X Hanes underwear. They also have socks for guys with size 13 to 15 feet.

They usually have a few (not many) things in tall sizes in their stores -- go online for a much wider selection of tall sizes.

I really hate to give Walmart my money but sometimes they are the only place to get basics without spending a fortune.

Burlington Coat Factory stores usually have decent Big and Tall sections (they have nice stuff cheap up to 6X and 4XLT). I've got lots of nice button up 3XLT shirts there.

Most of their stuff has a fair bit of vanity sizing going on. The 3XLT shirts I've bought are bigger than 4X shirts elsewhere. I also got a nice pair of Levis jeans at Burlington that say they're a size 42 -- they fit loose and let me tell you I don't have a 42 inch waist (more like 46 inches).

I enjoy visiting DXL with my lady. All the clerks are FFA's and it's her one chance to meet up with FFA's in real life.
But their clothes are too small. I pretty much get everything from King Size online.

Vanity sizing - not just for expensive women's clothing anymore!

I'm a DXL guy. Be ready to drop some $$$ though. It's not cheap I'm a top tier member and even with the free stuff it gets me I still pay around $100 for some cheep jeans after alteration. Custom fitted stuff is really the way to go through. I'm tempted to have some of my 7x's resized now that I'm back down in the 400's yet again.

For UK and Ireland, http://www.4xl-menswear.co.uk/ is pretty damn good.
Prices are realistic. Saw another fat men store selling a flannel shirt for 80 euro yeeeech
