Arg, does anyone have any shop suggestions?

M&S isn't exactly cutting it confused.

Tall, fat, muscly?

Er, the middle one.

You're looking at speciality shops or Internet shopping I think - there doesn't seem to be an Evans equivalent for men. High and Mighty has some stuff but it's very pricey. A guy I know likes Gildan t-shirts and Ben Sherman casual shirts, jeans are mostly weird brands like KAM. I wouldn't know where to get smarter stuff though. It's a bit of a problem.

DH is a giant, 6ft6 and getting too close to 20stone. I got him some shirts and jumpers in debenhams for Xmas, from Maine. they are fairly casual though.

Also Mantaray at debenhams do a larger men's range.

High and Mighty (again)

Thanks everyone, we're feeling a bit disheartened, but we'll look at the suggestions smile.

Big Fish, KAM & Duke are good.

Dh is a large chap - every time we go to Leeds Armouries a member of staff grabs him to pose next to Henry VIII's armour - to be fair the ginger beard adds to the effect!

Be careful with Jacamo; it looks like an ordinary online shopping website but will actually attempt to run a credit check and will sign you up as a catalogue customer if you're not incredibly careful angry

Big Fish can be a bit dodgy on the quality - some of the t-shirts are very thin and nasty compared to the Gildans, which also come in extra-long sizes (some T-shirt manufacturers seem to think bigger sizes need only be wider hmm)

My son is 6'4" very broad shouldered with a bit of a tum - skinny legs and butt though
Shops at Burton also Sainsburys and tesco sell xxl and even xxxl which he uses for basics, work shirts wtc

Cotton Traders do some stuff in large sizes too.
