• Men’s Wardrobe Query: 6 Cool Stores for the Big and Tall Guy

    Jordan asks, “Where can a Big & Tall guy in his 20s get trendy, affordable clothes? I love stores like H&M and Zara, but – of course – there’s no need for me to even go in to look for myself. I don’t want to be stuck with the basic, dad/older uncle clothes. Please help!”

    To answer your question, I contacted Rachel Johnson, stylist to basketball players Amaré Stoudemire , Chris Bosh, and Lebron James. She had the following recommendations. Check it out:
    1.Ralph Lauren

    She says, “Ralph Lauren is the ideal place to shop for polos, suiting, casual plaid shirts, cargo pants, outerwear coats.” Peruse their selection at www.ralphlauren.com.

    Make a bee line for the big & tall section. Johnson says, “They’re fantastic for fall jackets, sweaters, denim, corduroy.” Order online at www.bananarepublic.com.

    3. Levi’s

    In addition to your typical denim, Johnson says, “They have jeans with inseams up to 38″!!” Awright! See more at www.levis.com.

    4. Michael Bastian

    Rachel says, “For investment pieces, check out Michael Bastian. His cuts tend to run long yet slim and fit guys as tall as Amar’e Stoudemire & Chris Bosh straight off the rack.” Find store locations at www.michaelbastiannyc.com.

    Johnson explains, “For a gentleman who lives outside the retail range, custom is the way to go! Propercloth makes affordable custom shirts with stylish fabrics for under $100. Sleeve lengths up to 40″. Choose collar styles, buttons, cuffs and all!” Order your gem at www.propercloth.com

    6. Indi Custom

    She says, ” You can design your own jeans and ensure fit on this site. There are tons of washes to choose from, 10 fits, and 8 measurements they require. But don’t fret! Take the measurements from your favorite jeans for duplicity’s sake. You can also create the ultimate leather jacket on this site and choose your leather weight, color and lining!” Um, I want to use this site! Get your customized pieces at www.indicustom.com.

    That does it!
