Shopping online has quickly become the most popular way to shop these days, however, there are still some difficulties when it comes to clothes shopping. It can be hard to know whether a brand’s clothing will fit you, or whether a specific item will hang just right when looking at it on a screen. And there’s only one way to try clothes on when shopping online: after paying for it and waiting an arduously long time for it to ship.
Plus, in those circumstances when an online purchase doesn’t fit properly, you then have to go through a whole process of shipping it back and requesting a refund; and most times your refund doesn’t include the money you paid for postage.
Online clothes shopping is especially hard for those men out there who are big or tall or both. Many brands simply don’t cater to bigger sizes, and some who do, don’t understand that bigger and/or taller gentlemen need extra fabric or completely different cuts in their clothing.
If you’re a big and/or tall man looking for good old fashion stores you can physically shop at, we’ve rounded up the best big & tall stores that produce well-fitting, high-quality clothes that are also sophisticated and stylish.
