Christmas Clothing For Big Men… & Puns

 

Yes, it is only November and we know blokes like to leave the shopping to the very last minute but our Christmas clobber will sell out before too long and we don’t want you missing out!

To keep you interested in this blog, we’ve added a number of terrible puns and there will be no prizes whatsoever for anyone who can spot them all… Because our low prices are pthe gift that keeps on giving. Although we may be doing some competitions soon if you’d like that? Let us know!

20% Off All Our Clothes in The Christmas Sale

If you’re reading this in December 2017, stop what you’re doing and head straight over to our website! We’ve currently got a HUGE Christmas sale on men’s clothes in sizes up to 10XL.

‘Twas the sale before Christmas! Big sizes at small prices.

2XL to 8XL Christmas Clothing

Let’s talk about sizes: It’s well known that Christmas is a time for excess. If you are a big bloke already, then the chances are, you’re not going to be any smaller by the New Year. So you are going to need some big Christmas clothing with a bit of give and we have some absolute crackers!

We stock Christmas Clothing in sizes 2XL to 8XL: Proper men’s sizes! If you want a couple of extra minces pies, a beer or eight or even the entire pudding, we have you covered. Literally. We have super Christmas clothing is super sizes. So just relax until you make some New Year’s resolutions and think about buying a size up from your usual so you don’t look a complete turkey!

Christmas Jumpers:

It appears that Christmas jumpers sprout up everywhere these days, for the home, the office or for a night out. They seem to get brighter and wackier every year and we try to keep up demand for the Christmas stock.

We’ve got 2XL to 5XL Christmas jumpers on the Christmas Clobber page, in a selection of designs, from Snowmen images to Rudolph, Santa and more. All with a cheeky, comedy twist to get laughs from friends and loved ones. These make the ideal present and prices start are under £13! So you can wrap up warm, get a laugh and look great at less than the price of a full round at the bar.

Crimbo Shirts and T-Shirts

We’re famed for our big t-shirts and super-sized shirts, so where would we be at Christmas without a nice selection of comedy tees and tasteful (if you like that sort of thing) shirts?

In all cases, we have a cheeky comedy twist. With specially printed shirts, featuring Christmas trees, Santa Claus or snowmen and t-shirts that range from cheeky to quite rude! There are a few good (bad/awful) puns on them as well as some slightly risque jokes and images if you have the (snow) balls to wear them.

They are not for prudes and are sure to get a laugh provided the man wearing them is not a snowflake!

… That pun was awful. Sorry.

 

Socks and Pants!

Lets (Santa) pause for a moment and think about the most popular of Christmas gifts: Socks and underwear. It may always have been a bit of a disappointment to receive these when you were younger but as you get older and bigger, you really appreciate the importance of a good, comfortable set of underwear.

Every man needs a sturdy set of underwear and our Espionage twin pack of Boxers in sizes 2XL to 7XL. Without wanting to sound rude(oplh), they will keep your nutcrackers warm.

Don’t forget about socks either. We’ve got Christmas twin packs with a festive theme for under £8! The perfect gift that will bring a bit of joy no matter what the time of year. You just cannot beat a nice pair of socks… So two pairs would be even better.

 

But Wait, There’s Myrhh!

We’ve saved the best for last!

One of our most popular jumpers is actually part of a set. This jumper and Christmas hat combo will make you look and feel like Saint Nick himself. It’s bright, bold, fun and under £20! What a deal!

We’ve even got some Christmas-themed baggy trouser bottoms that are great for lounging around the house or tearing open pressies in. Supremely comfortable and with enough give to make sure your carol singers don’t burst out at the Christmas dinner table.

Finally, for the ‘Claustrophoic” amongst you, there are all our other clothes. You don’t have to love Christmas to enjoy our XL to 10XL clothing but Yule not want to miss out!

Big Blokes: Bag A Bargain!

 

I’m a big bloke and I love a bargain (I think we all do) … But I hate shopping. This makes bagging a bargain a little difficult. To further add to my problems, I’m a little bit bigger than 3XL so finding clothes on the high street is basically impossible.

It’s a good job that Big Tee Shirt has got you covered as always: We do great prices all year round but you may want to check out the clearance section of the website for some absolutely cracking deals… Even if we do say ourselves.

With new stock constantly coming in, we have to make space, so we are always updating the clearance section and you can make monster savings of up to 75%… Let’s tell you how!

Clearance Items:

We have a unique policy with clearance clobber, if any product has been reduced within the last 21 days then it will appear in the ‘Clearance Items’ section of the site.

This is not “old” stock or dated items, it is simply anything that has been recently reduced. You should have a decent choice of sizes here, often there may be a few sizes missing due to depleted stock but there will nearly always be something to suit you.

You’ll often find that the clearance section is regular stock that may have only come in recently but we need to make room for more… So it gets reduced. There’s always great savings to be had so it’s worth checking back regularly.

End Of Line Items:

All good things must come to an end… Our clothing lines are no exception and the End Of Line Items is the place to go if you want massive discounts on soon-to-be-extinct items.

Sizes will be quite limited but the reductions will be HUGE! We have up to 50% off RRP on some items and we will have from XL to 13XL sizes… Just not on all products. But don’t worry, you can filter by size on the left so you should always find there is a decent choice of items that will fit bigger blokes.

There tends to be a few past season items here but for the most part, anything with limited stock will end up here, reduced and ready for a new home so it’s well worth checking in regularly on what is available.

Damaged & Seconds:

Limited Stock. Limited Sizes. Potentially damaged. Potentially ex-display.

The damaged and seconds section of the website is where the biggest bargains can be grabbed: So long as you do not demand perfection! There may be little-to-nothing wrong with an item but it may be missing labels if it is ex-display stock from our retails shop or there may be cosmetic damage such as tears or rips. In all cases, we indicate what is wrong with the item and why it’s reduced.

With up to a whopping 75% off though, you can grab an absolute bargain and give some very exclusive, limited stock a good home. You’ll look good whatever, won’t you? Plus you can spend the savings on a beer or a meal out!

Keep Checking For Savings

There’s no shame in saving a few quid but there is a usually compromise involved. There does not have to be.

If you want the biggest clothing at the cheapest prices then the clearance section of the Big Tee Shirt website cannot be beaten. Go take a look now!

 

Super-Sized Dummies Wear Our Clothing! (Meet The Bariquins)

 

… Before anyone gets offended, we aren’t saying bad things about amazing customers! We are talking about “Bariquins”; which are big mannequins (called Barry) used to train our awesome Emergency Service staff in the UK.

The Big Tee Shirt team thinks this is very cool… and it’s made even cooler by the fact that Barry has excellent taste in super XL-sized clothing: He wears sweatshirts and jogging bottoms provided by us! This proves is not a complete dummy and for the record, he takes a custom 13XL made by the Big Tee Shirt brand.

So let’s shed a little bit more light on Barry and his friends…

25-Stone Barry Makes the News!

Yes, big people are not going away and as a result, training is provided to our emergency service people on coping with a ‘larger than average’ persons in an emergency situation. This made national news at the end of September with ITV, The Metro, Manchester Evening News and even the Daily Mail (To name a few) picking up the story.

It’s a good job that Barry (and his friends) wear our clothing as it protected his modesty when his pictures were being strewn across the internet and national newspapers a week or so ago. Obviously, some of the stories came across a little negative *Cough. Daily Mail. Cough* but the Big Tee Shirt team feel extremely positive that our products are a small part of training our beloved emergency services.

As the population gets larger, this kind of invaluable tool (It’s what you are, sorry Barry) is vital to preventing injuries and saving lives and as bigger people ourselves, it’s great to know that we’re in well-trained, competent hands… Not that there was ever any doubt.

We did ask Barry for a comment but we’re still waiting for him to get back to us.

A Bariquin in action: Being used to train staff on safe removal of a large person from a 1st floor.

We Love Our Emergency Service Guys and Girls

The Bariquin dummies serve a very real and very important role: training our Fire and NHS staff to better deal with bigger people. Apparently, between 2011 and 2015, 1,000 NHS staff were injured whilst treating larger patients. It’s humbling to think that our clothing will be on every Bariquin that helps with training and should potentially reduce the risk to our service folk.

As a big bloke myself, I would never want to be a burden on our amazing services and I’m all for the additional training if it helps staff stay safe and saves big lives. Despite a lot of negative press, especially regarding the NHS, I don’t think anyone is in any doubt that it is the dedication, hard work and goodwill of the staff that keeps the wheels turning. We have an awful lot to be thankful for.

Bariquin’s Vital Statistics:

You may be wondering about the details of the Bariquin, so here they are…

  • Each Bariquin weighs 25 stone, 350 lbs or 158.75kg
  • Barry can be broken down into 25 parts
  • Barry’s largest part is his torso which weighs 2.51 stone, 35lbs 4oz or 16kg
  • Barry wears custom-size 13XL sweatshirts and jogging bottoms
  • Barry has a special removable-limb assembly to allow for amputee training scenarios
  • Bariquins were designed and built in the UK
  • Assembly takes approximately 10 minutes
  • Takedown takes approximately 10 minutes

Fancy a Bariquin For Yourself?

You may wish to have a Barry of your own personal reasons and the good news is: You can! Head over to our friends at http://www.bariquins.com/ to grab a Barry but be prepared to pay over £4000… You can’t put a value on saving a life though, can you?

 

Bigger Sizes. Cheaper Prices.

We’ve been quiet for a while, haven’t we? Sorry about that… We’ve got some very exciting things going on behind the scenes and we’ll be making a few big announcements soon™.

Rest assured though, we’ve been very, very busy behind the scenes and you can expect some new stock in our bigger men’s sizes at unbeatable online prices. But in addition, we’re working on the website to make it an even better experience… Because big men don’t need any extra hassle when shopping, do we?

We’re Expanding… And Not Just Our Waistlines!

With Autumn upon us, that means it’s time to start wrapping up and pack away the shorts for a few months. To celebrate the cold weather (meh) we’ve stocked some new colours in our extra long t-shirts for the really tall, really big guys. They’re ideal nightshirts for that extra layer to keep the cold out or simply great for everyday wear as they are extremely comfortable.

In fact, we’ve got heaps of new clobber to keep you warm whilst looking good. You can find all the latest additions and new items here. There’s coats, jackets, comedy t-shirts, winter shirts, hoodies… You name it. We’ll keep the gear coming and start even though it’s only September, we’re already getting requests for our Christmas clothing. We’ll add more and keep you updated on Facebook or the newsletter. Links to that will be at the end of this blog.

We’ll add more and keep you updated on our Facebook page and our newsletter. Links to those will be at the end of this blog.

Back To The Future

We’ve been providing big men’s clothing for the best part of twenty years and as our waistbands have grown, so too has the market. We’ve seen similar businesses come and go but we’ve always had one simple philosophy: Provide the service and clothing that we’d like for ourselves: The biggest men’s clothes, the best brands and the cheapest prices.

We all love a bargain but trying to find affordable clothes when you’re 3XL or over can be extremely difficult. That’s why we stock up to 10XL+ and if we can’t find a brand that does exactly what we want then we make it ourselves! We know those big men don’t stop at just size 5XL.

Feel free to let us know if there are any ranges you’d like to see more of. Use the contact page on our website or contact us on the Facebook page… We’ll welcome a bit of feedback. Any kind of “feed” is good in our book.

Follow Us!

Finally, we’ll be making some BIG announcements in the coming weeks so make sure you don’t miss out! Yes… Super-sized announcements with a few tweaks and changes that mean you’ll be getting some very special deals that you won’t find anywhere else.

To stay ahead of the pack, why not pop us a like on Facebook or alternatively you can subscribe to our newsletter. Or you could do both. 

We’ve got exciting times ahead and we want you guys to be part of it.

Where To Buy Shorts For Big Men:

 

Here at Big Tee Shirt, we try to vary our blog posts so that they are entertaining and interesting but sometimes we just have to shout about the big mens clothes we’ve got. In this blog we are going to toot our horn and tell you about our shorts for big men … Seeing as we’ve just got a load more stock!

With summer on the way, maybe a holiday or two and hopefully some better weather, it’s time to pack the winter clothes away and fill your drawers with shorts. Perfect for lounging around the home, working out in the garden or chilling by the pool.

As you’d expect, we stock the biggest sizes (Up to 8XL) for men at the lowest online prices. Take a short look at the selection:

 

Plain Shorts

You may be the sort of bloke who does not like to make a big fuss. A bloke who wants to keep things simple. The kind of bloke who cuts his sandwiches straight down the middle instead of diagonally or into little triangles.

Then you are probably the sort of bloke who would like our plain shorts.

Whilst we have shorts that are plain and uncomplicated to look at, they are perfectly made with some special features for the bigger man. For starters, they come in sizes 2XL to 8XL: up to a 62” waist… That waists are elasticated and will have either a belt loop or a drawstring to keep the shorts elevated. We have a selection of colours and styles so to be honest, even our plain shorts are not very plain.

 

Camo & Floral Shorts

If you want to blend in with the background or seek disguise in field full of flowers then both of these styles will (if we are being honest) not work for you at all.

But why should you blend in? You can prepare yourself for the extreme urban environment with camo shorts or sit in a tropical paradise by the pool in some floral shorts.

You wear them where and how you like.

But as always, we provide elasticated waists, bigger sizes up to 62” waists (or 8XL) and extra loose fit for extra comfort in our camo and floral shorts. So don’t be a wilting violet or fade away, grab a pair of these shorts today.

Yep. That rhymed.

Cargo Style Shorts

Cargo shorts are ideal the practical man or the man who carries everything! To be fair, most guys have at least a phone, a wallet and some loose change but all those things have to go somewhere! Cargos are the ideal shorts to store all that stuff. With the extra space due to the pockets at the sides you can carry the the extra bits and bobs you need.

Our cargo shorts are as you’d expect, in bigger sizes 42” to 60” waist and we have a massive selection of styles, from jean cargo shorts to brushed cotton. Most importantly, we have a large selection of them with elasticated waists to keep them upright when you are carry the world in your pockets!

 

Denim Shorts

Jean Shorts or ‘Jorts’ as as popular now as they were back in the 90’s, just so long as you remember the simple rule: avoid double denim.

Unless you want to look like Jean-Claude Van Damme in his going gear then these denim shorts are not to be combined with any other denim.

Is that clear? Avoid double-denim.

OK? Cool.

… Because cool is what you’ll look and feel in our awesome denim shorts. We have a special denim-mix (Look on the website for the secret combination) that means our denim stretches to allow more give and more comfort to the bigger guy. Depending on the shorts you choose, you can have cargo style or regular jean style but with zip fly and a button or draw string.

As always, we stock 2XL to 8XL or up to 62” waist so these shorts are perfect for a big and tall man. Assuming he’s wearing no other denim.

 

Longer Length Shorts

Speaking of the big and tall man, we have longer length shorts for the chap with legs that cross county lines when he sits down.

These come in the shape of ¾ lengths shorts or simply the longer-legged range. You can see them on the website. These are in every kind of style you can imagine: Sports shorts, cargo shorts, plain shorts, draw string etc. We stock them up to 62” waist so it’s not just about the length.

We have flex-waist fit too because we know that it’s not just the tall guy that wants to have the extra length, if you are a big fella, you may want to keep your legs covered or perhaps you simply don’t like to show off your knees.

Our prices start from under twenty quid so you can cover your legs (to below the knees) for less than the price of a round at the bar.

 

Swimming Shorts

Make a big splash.

… That’s what I do in my 6XL swimming shorts: when I break the rules and dive bomb into the pool. Because I’m a maverick.

You can be a maverick too, with our swimming trunks in sizes 2XL to 8XL and you’ll be relieved to hear there is not a budgie smuggler (That’s Australian slang for super-tight Speedo-style swimming keks) in sight.

Along with bigger sized waists, we have a range of designs from fairly plain colours to bright, tropical and even some tartan. You won’t be afraid to dip your toe in the water with these awesome trunks so stock up now and fill your *trunk!

Premature Elections and Big Tee Shirts

 

You may remember that a few weeks ago we wrote a Big Tee Shirt Brexit blog to reassure our customers that the Brexit would not affect the prices or service that we provide.

Well, with the news that we’re heading into more uncertainty with an election that’s been brought forward, we thought it best to address some of this issues this can raise.

Questions About Big Men’s Election Problems

We’ve had quite literally a couple of questions that relate to our mens plus size clothing and the election  so it’s important that we make our policies clear and outline our sales manifesto:

  • We’ll always provide big clothes at small prices
  • We promise to stock more men’s clothing in sizes 2XL to 8XL
  • We promise to keep more elasticated waistbands in stock
  • The UK comes first: With next day dispatch on orders before 2PM
  • We will provide payment relief in the form of free deliveries on orders over £90
  • We will not be beaten on customer satisfaction
  • We will ensure we have big and tall men covered

Promising all these things is all well and good but where would we be without giving you some details about how we achieve the magnificent elections that we do…

Hung Parliament

You can’t run the risk of another hung parliament like we’ve seen in the past, just like you can’t risk the discomfort of wearing the wrong underwear.

YES! We’re linking ‘hung parliament’ with men’s plus sizes underwear. We’ll avoid jokes about politicians having “balls” or making reference to them being a load of ****s. That sort of humour is below the belt, just like a good set underwear.

Whilst you’re here, you may as well take a look at our men’s underwear in sizes 2XL to 8XL. You won’t be disappointed and they will keep your politics in order.

Falling Shorts

We can agree that politicians say all sorts of things on the run up to election time but usually end up falling short of the mark.

If there’s one thing we can’t stand, it’s falling shorts. That’s why we always make sure we keep a good range of men’s shorts in waist sizes 42” to 60”.

You can take your pick from a range of candidates such as cargo, smart, ¾ length, jean, swimming and casual, many with elasticated waist and some with draw-strings. You won’t be disappointed in whatever selection you make. They should probably last a few terms in offic as well.

Full of Shirts

We are full of shirts at the moment as we’ve had some new stock come in, ranging from the wacky to quite conservative. I don’t want to labour the point but you really should check out our 2XL to 8XL Mens Shirts.

We’ve got more options headed in over the coming weeks and we should probably mention that prices start from under a tenner. We’ve got you covered here at Big Tee Shirt and we put your interests first. We have big clothes at small prices, all year round.

Pop an X in the box and vote for us. Or pop up to 8X’s for the X-tra Large sizes we supply.

 

It’s Getting Hot In Here, So Buy Some New Spring Clothes…

 

Did we just use a song title parody as a blog title? You bet we did.

But we’re in a very good mood and very keen to put a spring in your step now that the weather should be on the turn, the days are getting longer and bank holidays are just around the corner!

It’s time to get yourself outdoors, do a bit of pottering about in the garden… or sitting in the beer garden down the pub and it’s vitally important that you wear the correct attire to do so. Luckily we stock all that good stuff and we have lots of new lines coming through this spring, so why not take a look?

We Love *Short Shorts. (*But Longer Ones Are Better)

You may be a veritable action man or simply a bloke that enjoys a bit of comfort but either way, we can both agree that shorts are ruddy perfect every-day wear. When the weather is hot we live in shorts and to be honest, when it’s only-just warm enough, we live in them anyway.

But as you’d expect, we stock rather special shorts for larger men in waist sizes 44” up to 60” or if you want an elasticated waist we have sizes 2XL to 8XL. Definitely suitable and comfortable for the bigger gent.

  • Longer length legs
  • Cargo Shorts
  • Surfer style shorts
  • Walking Shorts
  • Rugby Shorts
  • Denim Shorts (Jorts or Jean Shorts)
  • Stretch Denim Shorts
  • Floral shorts
  • Plain Shorts
  • Camo Shorts
  • Flexi Waist Shorts
  • Chino Style Shorts
  • Baggy Cargo Shorts
  • Fleece Style Shorts
  • ¾ Length Shorts

 

That’s just what made the short-list *groan*. We literally have shorts for everything. There’s a big selection of big shorts in a variety of colours and styles.

… In short, we have lots of shorts for big blokes.

Let Me See That Thong Tha-Tha-Thong Thong Thong…

Only joking! Even we have a limit.

We may not (thankfully) do thongs but we do a great selection of underwear for big guys. So you can have a bit of support behind the scenes. Prices start at a small package of £6.99 which buys a decent set of pants with enough fabric to keep your modesty under wraps.

Just to clarify: We do not do plus-size thongs for men.

Oh my God That’s Some Funky (T-)Shi(r)t(s)

After spending fifteen minutes trying to think of a song with t-shirt lyrics, I gave up. This title is modified lyrics from the Prodigy. If you can think of relevant t-shirt lyrics, drop a comment and let us know. I can update this bit. 🙂

So… T-shirts! The perfect accompaniment for shorts. Well, it goes without saying that a company with a name like ‘Big Tee Shirt’ sells a lot of actual big t-shirts for larger guys. In fact, we specialise in them.

We stock sizes 2XL to 8XL in a fine selection of styles and colours. Shall we list the styles to make the blog a bit longer? Yes. Yes we should:

  • Plain T Shirts
  • Printed T Shirts
  • Tie Dye T Shirts
  • Extra Long T Shirts
  • Funny T Shirts
  • Branded T Shirts
  • Unbranded T Shirts
  • Biker T Shirts
  • Polo Shirts
  • Political T Shirts
  • Ska T Shirts
  • Sleeveless T Shirts
  • Music T Shirts
  • Northern Souls T Shirts
  • … and Vests

 

Actually we do so many types of extra-sized t shirts that we can’t list them all. There’s at least 7 types of humour in the “Funny T-Shirt” section alone.

The point is, we do big t-shirts to suit every kind of man. Apart from the kind of man who has no sense of style. We apologise… But we can’t help them. Stylish men only.

Is that ‘stylist’?

Probably.

No Jacket Required

With it being BRITISH spring time we realise it may be a tad optimistic when we talk about shorts and t-shirts. Let’s be realistic and talk about waterproof jackets. In fact we do some amazing coats, jackets and waterproofs for the bigger man so why not make a bit of a list?

Are you ready? Go…

  • Denim Hooded jackets
  • Quilted jackets
  • Waterproof coats
  • Windproof coats
  • Fleece jackets
  • Fleece sleeveless
  • Gillets
  • Parka jackets
  • Lined Denim
  • Body Warmers
  • Smart Overcoats
  • Utility Jackets
  • Lightweight Jackets (That can’t hold their drink)
  • Summer Jackets
  • Winter Coats
  • Barber Jackets
  • Outdoors Coats
  • Wool Blend Jackets
  • Camo Jackets
  • Harrington Style Jackets
  • Bomber Jackets
  • Oxford Style Jackets
  • Leather Jackets
  • Waist Coats
  • *Straitjackets

*We lied about the straitjackets

But all other jackets are available in a range of colours and style… and most importantly, in proper man’s sizes of 2XL to 8XL.

Float Like A Butterfly, Spring Like Big Tee

Yes, that made little sense and it’s not a song but we had to end this blog with something, didn’t we?

We’re updating the website almost daily with new stock so please do keep coming back and checking what’s available. We’ll be re-stocking some of the sizes that were not available before and expanding on our ranges. Feel free to message us with any questions, we’ll be glad to help!

 

 

The Brexit Blog: How It Affects Big Tee Shirt

We’ve had a good few customers get in touch and ask how Brexit will affect Big Tee Shirt. Some of the questions we’ve been asked are:

  • Will it mean our prices will go up?
  • Will we stock different items?
  • Will we still stock the same big brands?
  • Will we stock anything at all?
  • Will our sizes change?
  • Will we have some Brexit parody t-shirts?
  • Will we move to Spain?
  • Will we ship to the moon?
  • Will we ever stock thongs?
  • How do we maintain such low prices?

 

The answers in all cases are.. Nothing changes.

We’ll still stock the same great clothing for big and tall men at very reasonable prices. We won’t be moving to Spain. We don’t ship items via rocket ship (they get lost and it’s too expensive), we’ve no idea how we keep our prices so low and we’ll never stock thongs.

We hope that clears up your concerns.

Don’t worry, we’re not going to leave you, in fact we fully intend to remain awesome and if possible, become even more awesome. Why not have a look at our range of mens jeans in waist sizes 40” up to 70” whilst you here but not before we leave you with a little joke:

Q: What happens when a large Yorkshireman sits on a plastic garden chair?

A: … He Brexit.

… I’ll get my coat

Egg-citing Easter Clothing For Big Dudes

 

Here at Big Tee Shirt we celebrate Easter in a big way. Not necessarily because we are religious – but because we are fanatical about good food and good times with loved ones. And such occasions are the perfect ‘egg-cuse’ to update your wardrobe…  Sunday marks the beginning of Spring and that means Easter is on the way so you need to be prepared.

Eggs-tra Stretchy Jeans


It is also a time when we can stuff our face… guilt free.

That’s right, the only thing I’m giving up for Lent this year is non elasticated trousers. I want to make room for the abundance of chocolate eggs and roast dinners that come my way. Not to mention the fish n chip supper on Good Friday. And the beers on Saturday…

Thankfully at Big Tee Shirt we stock a variety of that old favourite jeans with stretchy waists that avoid having to undo buttons at the dinner table. After all, the last thing you want after enjoying your mother-in-law’s roast is to stand up only for your slacks to hit the floor. No-one needs to see your Kinder surprise. Not even her.

‘Cracking’ outdoor and active wear

I get the meat sweats after I’ve had a good roast – so you may feel the need to get some fresh air after that hefty dinner. Hop on over to our fantastic outdoor clothing ranges and see what tickles your fancy.

Whether it’s an Easter egg hunt with the kids, paint-balling with the lads or a merry jaunt across the countryside with the missus – don’t let the weekend become a damp squib by getting caught out in the April showers.

We stock a variety of plus size men’s waterproof and windproof jackets – not to mention thermals. From our soft shell jackets and fleeces for brighter days – to our waterproof jackets and parkas.

And if you’re planning on doing something more active (are you mad?) – check out our utility gillets and waterproof hiking and walking boots.

Getting out in the fresh air has the benefit of burning off the Easter grub – so you have room to eat more when you get back!  The only ‘eggs-ercise’ I plan on doing this Easter is repeatedly lifting chocolate to my mouth.

Hot Dressed Buns

Easter means a bonus Bank Holiday and more opportunities to enjoy a night down the pub. Single lads can impress ‘chicks’ at the bar with our smart-casual wear. We’ve got a cracking range of extra large dapper shirts,  along with stretchy smart trousers and chinos if you want to accentuate your buns for the ladies.

Or if you’re up for a laugh, and maybe ruffling a few feathers, you could wear one of our (mildly offensive) funny slogan tee-shirts. From the safe and topical “Every time I hear the word exercise I wash my mouth out with chocolate” – to the bold “YES – I ATE ALL THE F*%KING PIES”

Hop back on to our site

Even with the big brands we stock, it really is no ‘yoke’ when we say we won’t be ‘beaten’ on price. And if you make your Easter plans a bit late this year you needn’t ‘scramble’ around for something to wear as we offer same day despatch if ordered by 2pm.
SO with such ‘egg-cellent’ customer service – you won’t end up with egg on your face this Easter.

 

10 Reasons Why Big Men Are Sexy

 

I’m going to address the elephant in the room and make this statement: big men are sexy.

No jokes about me being the elephant in the room (I’m way ahead of you) and obviously as a bigger man I am biased about why we are more appealing. You don’t even have to believe me at this point but give me two minutes of your time to read the rest of this blog and if I have not convinced you (not that you probably need convincing) then feel free to leave me a comment or share this blog to spread the word.

It’s possible that you already have the opinion that bigger gents are sexy specimens, but you can’t put your finger on why – so let me highlight a few of our plus (sized) points about what makes us stand out.

Sense of Humour

Bigger guys are more fun. Because most big men have always been bigger and always will be, we’ve learned to not take ourselves too seriously. We can laugh at ourselves and take a joke better than most. We’re large people trapped in a world created for smaller people.

We’ve adapted to be the funny ones who are more comfortable in our own skin even if we’re not comfortable in your tiny car. We’ll have plenty of anecdotes that come with being a big bloke and we’re probably more likely to laugh at ourselves before laughing at anyone else. You can even find some of us in humorous big t-shirts – which we sell by the way.

But more importantly, we’ll make you laugh. Lot’s of comedians are built bigger and it’s no coincidence. If you can laugh at your own expense then you can always make people laugh with you.

We’re Better Dressed

Bear with me here; I’m not talking about when we are lounging around the house in our PJ’s or joggy bottoms, I’m talking about when we go out.
Because it’s harder to find decent clothes to fit a bigger man, we have to be a bit more selective about what we wear. Hence why people come back to Big Tee Shirt, we have top brands in big sizes at very reasonable prices.
It makes sense that if it’s harder to find clothes that fit you then you put that extra big of effort into the selection process. That and you probably buy from us so you will look awesome.

We’re More Manly

We just are.

I’m not saying we laugh at hipsters in skinny jeans but… Yeah, ok we might laugh at them. They look ridiculous, don’t they? Bless ‘em.

Put it this way, when was the last time you heard someone say: “Phwoar, look at that bloke in his pointy shoes and skinny jeans, with his little curled up moustache. He is sexy! He’s a REAL man!” – They’ll never say that. Because the big bloke next to them will be getting all the attention. Obviously.

We’re built to be protective and this makes us desirable in a sexy kind of way. Look at celebrity bodyguards. You never see a slightly-built bloke taking on that hefty role do you? No, they are man-mountains of ginormous statue and make no mistake.

The point is there to be made, we don’t like to stereotype but bigger men are more manly. I’ve just dug myself a hole for the next point.

We’re Less Judgemental

Want a second portion? Go ahead!

Fancy a dessert? Help yourself!

If you want to diet, you go right ahead but know that big men don’t judge. We love you for who you are because you love us for who we are. Isn’t life better when you can just be yourself and be happy? Unless you’re a hipster; We may judge your choice of jeggings if we’re being honest.

But as a partner, we are less judgemental. Just to be clear. 

I probably should not have made this point right after the hipster comment.

We’re Not Obsessed with Ourselves

Though this blog may appear to contradict that, I have to write about something and it is a blog for men’s extra large clothing.

What I mean is, bigger men are less prone to excess preening and you know only a select number of us will spend any real time at the gym. Less time at the gym and less time spent on beauty therapy probably means more time with the other half. So the lack of self obsession is beneficial – and sexy.  Probably.

That said, if you are looking for gym clothes for big men, we do those too. We know it’s hard to find clothes that fit when you get fit.

Lust For Life

Larger fellas enjoy life more: We laugh more, we eat what we like most of the time, we’re probably limited in terms of where we can go or how we can get there so we make sure we enjoy the things we do when we do them. We probably avoid public transport wherever possible though.

We won’t scrimp on the extra plate at the buffet and we won’t lecture you on how you should live your life. Being more comfortable with ourselves means you can be more comfortable with us. Enjoy your life, all those diets won’t be remembered when you’re grey and old!

There’s More of Us to Love

Yes, that old cliche! We’re not being sizeist here because if you’ll remember, we’re not judgemental. We’re good like that.

I’m not saying that there is a size-to-lovability ratio, but we’re bigger and what may seem imposing when you first meet us soon shows we are mostly big softies who wouldn’t be the way we were if we were made in a standard size. You couldn’t fit the people we are in a smaller frame, it’s just scientific fact!

We’re More Content

There’s a lot to be said for being content. In fact the Danish have made it into an artform and seem to keep writing books about it. They call it Hygge – but to a bigger man it’s just something that comes naturally.

Big guys have learned to live in a small world and we are less likely to pressure ourselves to conform to social ideals that the media push upon everyone. When you’re around content people you feel more content yourself and enjoy life more.

We’re Great in Bed.

It’s statistically proven… Probably.

We sleep better and do other things better too. We have more comfortable night wear like (cheap plug) extra long night shirts. We probably have bigger beds as we don’t fit into a standard double all that well – but this is a great way to lead onto the last point…

We’re a Better Quality Cuddle

We’re just big teddy bears really, aren’t we? I’m told there is something to be said for a hug from a bigger guy. We’ll put you at ease and make you feel secure. Yes it sounds soppy but that’s fine. 

We may be big and tall, long and thin or short and round but big blokes come in all kinds of forms and I promise we make the best cuddlers. I’ve had the feedback. We may be choosy about who we cuddle though so it’s probably best not to hug the first big bloke you see.

… That’s just weird. Probably illegal too. You should ask first really.
