With summer rapidly approaching now is the perfect time to get your summer wardrobe in order and we’ve got some great choices to start you off. From multi-pocket cargos to bright Hawaiian shirts all made for the bigger chap.
Shorts In Big Sizes
Shorts are the best thing created but you already knew that!
There is a style of short for every occasion, from work to lounging and everything in between. Although, the style of short that you choose can make or break an outfit such as jersey shorts with a dress shirt.
Sweat/ Jersey shortsare brilliant for most applications, especially for the bigger chap. They have a nice elasticated waist and comfy fleeced lined material for all-day comfort and they look smart enough to wear out. They are so comfortable in fact, I’m writing this very blog in my favourite pair of jersey shorts.
Cargo shorts are next up on the comfort scale and with the added bonus of being able to carry everything you’ve ever wanted and still have room for a pack of polos tucked away in the weird pocket that you forgot you had. Yes, these shorts are the swiss army knife of the half trouser world and so comfy you’ll forget you’re wearing them. These belters from Espionage are made from 100% brushed cotton for that soft touch and feel.
Shirts In Big Sizes
Shirts are a big part of most outfits and you can stick with a regular T-shirt or go a little mad with a bright Hawaiian style shirt to make you stand out. Whatever your style Big Tee Shirt has you covered(literally).
The humble work shirt is one of our top picks for this summer. They look incredible as a dress shirt for a few beers with the lads or as an overshirt with a plain vest or t-shirt underneath. These shirts are made from 100% cotton making them breathable and comfortable especially for us bigger dudes. Available in blue or red check and the best part? work shirts last forever! Buy it this seasons and it’ll still be a wardrobe staple in years to come.
We know some of you guys like to stand out … and boy we’ve got a shirt for you.
It ticks all the boxes for us.
[✔] pink flamingos
[✔] palm trees
[✔] sandy shores The only thing you need is a little self-confidence to pull off this bold number. but we rate it so highly for lads holidays or nights out with the boys. Imagine a group of lads bursting though wearing these…
Funny T-shirts In Big Sizes
Summer should be filled with laughter, BBQs and beers… we can’t help with the BBq’s and beers but we’ve got you with the funny t-shirts. Be the talk of the party with some of our tongue in cheek t-shirts. The best part is that they last wash after wash so you can spill ketchup down them until your heart is content.
First up we’ve got one of our firm favourites here at Big Tee Shirt. “I Love cHip sHop” Let your love affair for the chip shop show with this hilarious classic. You can’t beat fish and chips on a summers evening after a day at the beach and that’s why this belter is one of our top picks for this summer.
And now onto my personal all-time favourite.. we are certainly not running any marathons this year but this type of marathon could catch my interest. And no I’m not on about what eventually became snickers.. damn tasty but no. This is a t-shirt for a runner up in the great Skegness Kebab Marathon of 2017. Now if that isn’t a marathon worth running I don’t know what is. Made from 100% cotton so if you do decide to give 26 miles a crack or you’re just nipping to the local takeaway you can do it in comfort.
Andre the Giant, Goliath, Gulliver. We are familiar with so-called giants of screen and mythology – but what if there was a real-life race of human giants that once walked the earth? And we don’t just mean you Big and Tall fellas out there.
It is a very odd theory indeed, and one that understandably draws sniggers upon first hearing it – until you look at the evidence. To say this is a fringe theory is a bit of an understatement, but hear us out…
There is some evidence that points to a lost race of giants which preceded modern man. Much of it is old documented accounts that is only now coming to light.
… But didn’t the film Prometheus allude to this, the film fans among you ask? Yes, it did, and the notion is slowly gaining traction with rogue scientists, free-thinkers, and pop culture… Even the new hyped Red Dead Redemption video game has a scene alluding to the theory.
From the Bible referring to a race of giants known as the Nephilim, who were said to have been killed by the Great Flood – to ancient cultures’ beliefs that a race of giant god-like humans brought the knowledge of civilisation back in the murky plains of prehistory, it seems that references to giants are everywhere in the ancient world. Indeed, it is a belief that many cultures and religions have held for a long time.
Now we’re not saying that we subscribe to the theory here at Big Tee Shirt, just that we find some of the so-called evidence pretty intriguing. And as we all know, the Big and Tall guy is a bit of a god in our eyes (and most ladies’ eyes too, wink wink!).
I hear you ask: “But we know giants exist, what about Andre the Giant?” We’re not talking about someone born with genetic gigantism like the late Andre (god bless his massive soul) – but an as-yet unrecognised race of giants humans.
So let’s leave our giant sceptic’s hat at the door and take a peek at some of the evidence: Speaking of hats we have a variety of winter warmers for you big fellas out there, but I digress.
If there were giants, where are the skeletons? you ask… They were found. All over the world – from the US to Romania and China. There just doesn’t seem to be any discoveries in recent years, and the old bones from past excavations have ‘mysteriously’ disappeared.
There is very credible documented evidence that giant skeletons were found across America in the late 1800s. In New England, skeletons unearthed in ancient burial mounds were measured at between 7ft and 10ft tall. Well-respected newspapers reported these findings at the time, which points to the credibility of their source. In fact, there are several documented findings of giant skeletons from all over America in the past, with most reports coming from the turn of the 19th century. There is also evidence that the bones of giants measuring over 2m in height were found in tombs across Sardinia. This was covered in an episode of TV’s Forbidden History – called ‘The Mystery of the Giants’.
Was this just fanciful thinking by the esteemed scientists at the time? Did they not know how to take simple measurements back then, or were they just ‘having a laugh’?
Here at Big Tee Shirt, we’re pretty hot on getting our big and tall measurements right, so all our big and tall guys look the part.
Giant humanoid bones have also been found in other countries. In Romania, for example, there are numerous reports of ginormous human remains being unearthed as recently as the 1970s, including those reportedly up to a neck-craning 16ft in height. Some of those measured had leg bones which were 6ft in length alone. Our extra long trousers lengths don’t quite stretch to that yet, but we do stock in leg lengths up to 37ins.
Even now, thousands of years later, modern thinkers, engineers and scientists cannot come up with a definitive answer as to how ancient man was able to build some of the most jaw-dropping megalithic sites around the world.
In Peru, a site called Sacsayhuaman (pronounced ‘sexy h-woman’, wink wink) displays mind-blowing skills and strength. Its huge stones, weighing up to 200 tonnes EACH have been used to build the wall of a fortress. But if their weight alone was not impressive enough, these stones have been cut, shaped and fitted together with such precision to appear almost like a ginormous stone jigsaw. We can imagine for everyone that has stood in front if this vast structure and marvelled at its size and skill, it wouldn’t be hard to imagine that it was a race of super-strength giants behind it.
The megalithic sites around the world are numerous, from the more familiar Great Pyramid of Egypt, Stonehenge and the Easter Island statues, to the lesser known sites of Puma Punku in Bolivia with its bizarre H shaped carved blocks weighing several tonnes each and with precise inter-locking features. This latter site pre-dates the Incas, with some who have examined the stones, dating them to as far back as 15,000BC due to their astronomical alignments.
Over at the ancient site of Baalbek, in Lebanon, stone blocks used in the construction of the foundations of the Temple of Jupiter weigh up to 800 tonnes each. Baalbek has undergone various points of semi-destruction through history, being the site of various battles, and re-building work by successive civilisations, including the Romans. But there is a very credible argument that the original megalithic parts of the site have its origins many thousands of years before civilisation as we know it began. Is it possible that Baalbek goes back, way back, to a forgotten time in earth’s history – between our current understanding of recorded history – and the prehistory of the dinosaurs, when giants ruled the earth? These are just some of the many sites around the world that display almost impossible feats of human engineering – which some attribute to the intervention of giants.
A conspiracy theory around the subject of this lost race of giants points to speculation that the bones of these skeletons always mysteriously disappeared once official organisations got involved.
There are some reports suggesting that during the 19th century, the Smithsonian museum in America was very keen to purchase the bones of giants found by civilians-only for them to never see the light again. There is a similar story in Sardinia – with farmers in more modern times uncovering massive bones and teeth and handing them over to the authorities, only to hear nothing more about them.
… In Romania, a site where several giant human bones were found (called the Hyperborean Gallery) was later permanently sealed, as authorities deemed the discovery too explosive and shocking. New Discoveries Re-writing the History of Humankind.
It was just a mere eight years ago that scientists finally acknowledged a different race of humans known as the Denisovans, who existed alongside Neanderthals and modern humans.
This race of human, found in the frozen caves of Siberia, was not thought to be massive in stature – but had huge teeth. All that has been found of the Denisovans is a tiny pea-sized fragment of the finger bone and two teeth. Yet it has been enough to give scientists a shred of DNA to finally say with certainty this was a previously unknown race of human. And just three years ago, scientists announced yet another new human species – homo Naledi – tiny-brained people with ape-like shoulders who lived in South Africa. So finding new species of humanoids is not unheard of – and perhaps it is just a matter of time until someone finds a piece of a big bone or a massive molar that modern science cannot ignore.
Maybe it’s time scientists started thinking about adding a new branch to the human family tree… but what would they name these giants? We’re taking bets they get called ‘Homo Gigantus’
We don’t want to tempt fate but football IS coming home isn’t it?
Our lads are making a STERLING effort and it’s great to see football uniting the nation once more. The trouble is, you can’t get official England kit in sizes beyond 2XL which is a bit of a kick to the STONES. We can’t believe the LOFTUS-CHEEK of N!ke, charging over fifty quid for a t-shirt and not doing in in proper sizes… It’s a DIER situation.
So, before you KANE your hard earned cash on a shirt that won’t fit, why not HARRY over to Big Tee Shirt and take your PICKFORD from the selection of England t-shirts that we provide…
Please, No F*#king Penalties…
This is the first year ever, that we’ve actually got the semi-finals on penalties. Thanks to the efforts of our boys, we are so close to raising the cup… But that does not mean we want any more nail-biting moments where penalties decide the game!
We’re stocking two no-nonsense colours: Navy Blue and black, in sizes 2XL through to 8XL. Made from 100% cotton as you’d expect.
WHAT A SCORE!
Up To 8XL… Back Of The Net!
We’ve made sure that we’ve got plenty of stock in the biggest sizes from a miniscule 2XL to a statuesque 8XL that will fit the biggest of men very WELBECK. If you’re looking for the three lions and an oath sworn to England then the “Vow England” t-shirt is the one for you.
We’ve got the biggest sizes and 11 different colours including the classic white and red with a cool, loose fit, a crew neck collar and it’s made from 100% high-quality cotton so the sensitive man won’t get a RASHFORD.
That pun was bad but trust me… they get a lot worse.
Available in very apt red, white and blue, these England polos look incredibly smart meaning you can support your team while you go out for a posh meal or meet the POPE. You’ll even look smart sat on your Jack JONES in this quality polo shirt.
Crafted from 100% cotton, it feels as good as it looks, with tri-colour collar, ribbed sleeve ends and the number 10 on the back: to give yourself the rating you deserve. It’s a really smart bit of England clobber that will suit any big man, YOUNG or old.
We stock this in sizes 2XL up to 7XL and you’ll TRIPPIER out when you see the quality of the retro-worn effect print. Available in a very patriotic range of colours: Red, White and Blue, these t-shirts are perfect for reflecting on how England ROSE to the top of the CaHILL and went on to bring the world cup home!
Three Lions On His Shorts!
Because there’s not just the football to celebrate but also the elusive English summer, we are stocking some rather special England shorts featuring the 3 lions on them.
These have proven very popular and we’ve VARDY got any sizes left! We’re down to 2XL, 3XL and 8XL so if you’re a late scorer, you may be in for a loss. However, if you are a big man that’s a runner or a WALKER then you’ll appreciate the drawstring waist, the two slip-pockets at the sides and the acrylic/cotton/polyester mix that gives the balls enough room for a kick about.
*We also provide English/Welsh/Scottish variations of the shorts because we love our neighbours even if they support our opposition.
You’ve probably noticed that we’ve tried to get the England players names into this blog but we had to keep a few on the bench as they were just too hard to fit into a pun.
So apologies to our heroes Maguire, Alli, Lingard and Henderson… And an extra special mention to the manager Gareth Southgate. A true gent and arguably, already one of the greatest managers that we’ve ever seen.
We’ll be rocking our England clobber for the rest of the tournament and no doubt for a very, very long time afterwards. All that remains to be said is… Again…
If you’re a regular visitor to the Big Tee Shirt website then you will probably have noticed that we’ve been undergoing some changes recently which mean our huge range of stock in huge sizes is even easier to navigate.
We don’t want people burning off precious calories with endless scrolling so we’ve taken every clothing category and broken them down into nice, logical subcategories… Meaning you will find what you’re after even quicker! Our old category system worked in such a way that if you wanted to look at our men’s t-shirts then you had to scroll through all the designs and all the ranges to find the tees you liked. Now, you can just go straight for the subcategory and you’re into the styles or themes that you love.
We do spoil you, we really do!
Up To 10XL T-Shirts
Yes, we cater for sizes L right up to a generous 10XL. But now we have taken our stock and created brand new categories to help you find what you want: easily.
• All T-Shirts
• Sporty Tees
• Smiley T-Shirts
• Extra-Long Plain T-Shirts
• Skull T-Shirts

We’ve been getting requests for a long time to add those bigger sizes and stock more themes… We listen to our customers, take notes and we’re proud to unveil the new ranges. We’ll be topping up the selections with lots of new stock and maybe a few new themes in the near future!
It’s Not Just T-Shirts
With a name like “Big Tee Shirt”, you would expect us to specialise in larger t-shirts and we certainly do (did I mention that we have a whole host of new categories in the funny t-shirts range?) but we provide all kinds of other clothing for the bigger guys.
Whilst we were updating the site and uploading new stock we have gone over every Style category and broken them down to make shopping that little bit easier… Because we hate shopping too!
We’ve split the big men’s jeans (not literally) into four categories, the shirts into seven categories, the nightwear into 6 categories… And that’s just a few of the styles. In fact, every single item of clothing has been redefined in glorious subcategories and you can find every style category for our big men’s clothes here!
Is THIS Big Enough For You?
You may have also noticed that we’re stocking sizes over and above the 8XL we used to stock… We have a range of 9XL and 10XL items in stock and we are able to provide bigger sizes up to 16XL upon request.
We’ve had lots of requests for specialist sizes that simply cannot be found anywhere else so we can provide various t-shirts and jogging bottoms that are made-to-order for our giant clients! These will obviously take a little longer as we have our suppliers craft them to your sizes and they are not off-the-shelf.
Let’s keep this brief: The Big Tee team has been a bit quiet on the blog for a while, haven’t we? Sorry, we’ve been pants keeping you updated but we’ve been very busy behind the scenes and we will reveal more on that in a future blog.
For now, we are going to hang out with you and talk about our 2XL to 8XL underwear for men but because we are Big Tee Shirt, we’ll throw in a few underwear puns and comments and we’ll try and keep them clean (the puns not the pants) to make things vaguely entertaining. OK… Let’s crack on with a bad joke.
What type of underwear is the best at self-defence?
We’re Trying To Get A Rise…
You may not be aware that we stock specialist underwear for the bigger chaps. We do extra-long, high rise boxer shorts that are especially good for customers’ medical conditions such as oedema, bariatric complications and hernias.
… Obviously, that’s no laughing matter but we’ll use our puns on the fly when we get the chance.
So, the higher rise underwear features extra length in the front and back to comfortably fit around your body and provide support. Crafted from a 95% cotton and 5% elastane mix, to allow stretch without irritation.
We take medical conditions very seriously… Certainly more seriously than we take our blogs. And on that note…
What’s a potato’s favourite underwear?
Heavy Weight Boxers
Like us, you may be no featherweight champion and may require big men’s boxer shorts. Don’t worry, we’ve covered our asses and have plenty in stock. Men’s designer brands like Kam, Espionage and Cotton Valley are available but we also provide our own with boxers from the Big Tee Shirt brand.
You might like to keep things loose when you hang out with your friends and our boxers are the perfect: Available in sizes 2XL to 8XL, they feature (depending on the brand) either cotton and lycra or cotton and elastane mix to maximise comfort for the maximised man. If you like twins then you won’t be disappointed with our twin packs or if you prefer multiples then the triple packs might be right up your alley.
Either way, we have a big selection of big boxer shorts in a range of colours and styles. Our shelves are absolutely bunged up full of them.
It’s easy to locate the underwear on the Big Tee Shirt website, you just need to select “Clothing” from the menu bar, then “Men’s Underwear” from the drop-down menu.
A Brief History Of Time…
You may want a bit more support from your pants and we can ensure your tackle is clean and tidy (football pun) with our big men’s briefs and plus-sized y-fronts. In both cases, you know the drill, there’s a selection of colours and styles in sizes 2XL to 8XL for the bigger man. Multi-packs are also available if you want to save a few quid!
We are starting to run out of puns now and we don’t want to lose our streak but the best underwear puns are the dirty ones.
Do stock camo underwear?
– Yes but you may not be able to see it. They are ideal if you want to go commando.
Recommended Storage Instructions:
We have been asked in the past about the correct way of storing underwear.
– In your drawers
Jokes & Puns Too Awful To Make it to this blog:
Here are a few jokes that were just too awful to include on the blog… But we didn’t want to waste them so we’ll hang them out to dry here:
Scrapped Title: Cheap underwear for tight a***s.
Tag Line: Bring back hanging… Abolish underpants.
What kind of pants do reporters wear?
*Lisps* Lets thing a thong *Groan*
Anyone who says they can find better underwear for big men is full of s***.
…On that note, we better toddle off but if you can think of any more pants puns then please do let us know and make us wet ourselves with laughter.
You may be wondering how we came up with the name “Big Tee Shirt” and we’re going to give you one guess.
It’s fairly obvious, isn’t it?
But “big” means different things to different people. We provide up to size 10XL t-shirts which are ideal if you are big in the middle but they may not be ideal if you are a really tall bloke.
That’s why we have a “Tall Store” range that may be perfect for you!
Being tall is a blessing and a curse.
Tall blokes are always the centre of attention; you can’t really miss us in a crowd. We can always reach the top shelves. We know what the weather is like before shorter folk do(Why do people say that?). On the downside, living in a world that is designed for smaller people can be a bit of an issue, we may have mentioned this before in this blog!
The biggest single problem with being a monster among men is finding clothes that actually fit. Just because a t-shirt, shirt, jacket or any item of clothing is an extra large size does not mean it will fit us, giants.
We have solved the problem by developing our own range of “Big Tee Shirt Brand” or “BTS” gear that gives us that extra length in the body or leg to make sure you’re covered!
Up To 41” Length Body Tees
You read that right! Our t-shirts are up to 41” in length, much longer than the standard. Every tall bloke knows the annoyance of wearing a t-shirt that which is too short and shows off out “assets”.
41 inches or 104 cm is MUCH LONGER than you will be used to. As mentioned above, there is big and then there is big. Just because you are tall does not mean you are big all over but that’s the reason we stock sizes Small up to 10XL! So you could be slight-built but very tall and we have you covered and looking good!
We have a broad selection of styles and colours. Everything from regular tees, printed tees, and polo necks to sleeveless and vests… So you can get your guns out!
We’ve got plenty more stock coming in over the next few months too, so keep an eye out for new clobber.
Up To 38” Leg?
It’s not just extra long t-shirts we do. Why have a long body if your trousers look like half-masts? We’ve got you covered: As always!
We stock jogging bottoms with up to 38” leg lengths. These are a blend of cotton, polyester and acrylic to ensure that there is plenty of give and room so you’re free to move about and comfortable enough to work, rest and play!
They’re not just long, either. We stock sizes Large to 8XL so even the very biggest men will be catered for. The elasticated waist has a drawstring so you can adjust it to fit comfortably and stay aloft, even if you’re working out or simply getting out of the chair too quickly!
The Biggest. The Best. Here’s The Rest:
Man cannot live in t-shirts and jogging bottoms alone: We know that. That’s why we have a multitude of other options to keep you warm and comfortable.
There’s v-neck sweatshirts, pullover hoodies, zip-up hoodies, waterproof jackets and parka coats. We have these is various styles and colours, with sizes varying depending on the range from Small (Yes, we do small!) to 8XL. We don’t want the tall, thin guys to feel left out… We’ve got you blokes covered too!
So there really is a huge range to choose from. Big and tall guys no longer have an excuse that they cannot buy clothes that fit them… They just have to find us!
Wash With Care
Just a heads-up: Always follow the instructions on the label!
Yes, this seems obvious but even the longest t-shirts can shrink if exposed to heat in a tumble dryer for example! Always be wary before washing and drying as you do not want your cotton/polyester/acrylic mix going small and becoming an average t-shirt.
Follow the washing instructions on the label and you should find the items will last for years to come without any issues.
Unsure About Your Size?
We’ll give you one last helping hand:
If you’re a big guy and you don’t really know how big or quite what size to choose, then why not use this:
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!
‘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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
… 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.
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.

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?
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.

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.
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.
