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.
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
• Truck And Car T-Shirts
• Halloween T-Shirts
• Long Sleeve T-Shirts
• Twin Pack T-Shirts
• Political T-Shirts
• Philosophical T-Shirts
• Plain T-Shirts
• Sleeveless T-Shirts
• Northern Soul T-Shirts
• Ska T-Shirts
• Musical Icons T-Shirts
• Americana T-Shirts
• Biker T-Shirts
• Dark Theme T-Shirts
And we are proud to now officially stock

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.
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:
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!
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.
… 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.
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!
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.
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.
… When we say “ever”, we do mean ‘of 2016’ – You can’t get rid of us that easily!
We just wanted a punchy title that made you read this blog if we’re being honest. But now you’re here:

Big Improvements For 2017
We’ve always taken great pride in our low prices and quality service along with the range of clothing we provide. But in 2017, we’ll be giving the website a bit of an update too!
We’ll be looking to make the whole site smoother, easier to navigate and even more mobile friendly so you can do exactly what blokes like to do when it comes to shopping; get in, buy it and get out, as quickly as possible!
You should see a few changes filtering through to the first quarter of 2017 but rest assured that we’ll be supplying the same quality men’s clobber that we always have… At the same low prices.
… Actually, that is a lie. We’ll be having a sale very soon so it’s going to be even lower prices than you’re used to!

We’d like to extend our very best wishes to our customers, their families, our suppliers and our friends. Happy 2017!
… That was another plastic patio chair that will have to go in the dustbin.
This is just one of many issues that us larger blokes have to face. Being big often incurs extra expense, excessive personal injury or at the least, great discomfort. This world was not built for guys over a certain size even if our range of big and tall clothes were.
Let me share with you my friends, just a few of the everyday problems that every big man can relate to. If we’ve left any out (we have) then feel free to let us know about them and we can laugh along together at how the tiny world seems to have it in for us.
Doorways Built For Hobbits
This is the absolute worst thing in the world. I know that the general population are getting bigger and taller but it seems that many places still have low door frames that are responsible for some fairly hefty concussions in their time.
We’ve got friends who have to come and visit us as we can’t go and see them in their cottage due to “that time someone had to go to hospital because the had too many jars and knocked themselves out on the doorway to the kitchen”. Oh how they laughed.
I got stitches by the way.
Low doorways are the bane of every tall man. Narrow doorways also pose a problem for the larger chaps but that is another story entirely.
People Who Need To Comment About Your Size
“How’s the weather up there? Do you play basketball? Are there birds nesting on top?” – And that’s just the tall blokes. Tubby guys get it far, far worse, believe me! I probably couldn’t print some of the things that I’ve heard over the years in this blog but I may consider it for a future NSFW blog… If you request it!
But the point stands: Why is it necessary to point out that we are massive? We’ve heard them all before when it comes to these comments but it seems like us Brits enjoy commenting on a man’s stature as much as we do about making unnecessary observations about the weather; that we can all see anyway.
Showers Built For Kids
Thankfully, most showers are adjustable so it’s not an everyday problem, but I guarantee that if I stay at a hotel the shower is shoulder-height. This does not just mean stooping to wash my hair but the inevitable smashing of the face (usually the nose) into the shower head or side panels.
Fixed shower-heads should be banned completely.
Then we have cubicles that are too damn small. It’s fine if you are 5 foot 2, but when you’re the other side of 6 foot and perhaps a pound or two overweight (OK a stone or three) then getting in and out is hard enough, let alone actually washing in there.
… And Baths We Have To Squat In
Leading on from showers, we have baths. These are generally no better.
A bath should be a relaxing experience, but for the bigger man it poses a veritable death trap. Firstly the logistics of getting in and out are very little fun, especially if it’s all greased up with bubble bath or those bath bombs the missus likes. It makes me look like a greased up sea lion trying to get up hill.
But once in, it’s no better. The average bath was not made for the bigger bloke. There’s arms and feet everywhere and trying to find the soap… Well. There’s a few jokes in that I’m sure. Feel free to suggest a few.
Shirts That Fit With Sleeves That Don’t
Part of the reason we set up Big T Shirt nearly 20 years ago was because (as a big bloke) I couldn’t find clothes that were built for a man of my… aspect ratio. This was ok when I was around the house in jogging bottoms and a t-shirt but special occasions were the worst…
The main issue was finding shirts that actually fitted. If I wanted to roll up my sleeves it was fine but getting all the measurements right and cuffs that actually got to my wrist’ then I had to do some searching. But search no more my friends; we’ve got big and tall shirts that would fit even the largest of gentlemen. So you can crack on with looking dapper and impressing everyone around with your sophisticated chat and hilarious wit without worrying you look like you stole a kid’s school shirt.
Every Mirror Is Too Low
Big men don’t usually make too much of a fuss about looking in every mirror (we know we look good) but it does seem like most mirrors we set up for children. Just like the shower cubicle, changing cubicles are basically the same situation. Usually you’d struggle to get much more than a mop and bucket in there, let alone a man of generous stature.
So once you are in, you may wish to check how you look… But of course, you need to stoop to see it. Just like everyone’s bathrooms or just about every mirror, anywhere. Yet another reason to order big and tall clothes online!
Wanting A Car We’ll Never Fit In To.
We all love a sporty car, don’t we? Or maybe I’m going through a midlife crisis?
Not that it matters, I won’t get into the ruddy thing anyway.
If we’re honest, half the reason we (used) to watch Top Gear and now watch The Grand Tour is to witness the spectacle of Jeremy Clarkson struggling to get in and out if pretty much any car he looked at. Why are fast cars designed for diminutive people? Surely a big chap should not have to buy a truck to get some comfort? Don’t get me wrong, you won’t get me in a bright yellow Ferrari but that’s mostly because it’s not an option until they bring out an XXXXL version.
Standing Out In The Crowd All Times
With our good looks, humorous repartee and humble nature, us big men do stand out. You’ll always spot us at social events, undoubtedly surrounded by amused onlookers as we regale them with anecdotes and tales. We really are people magnets.
The thing is, sometimes you just want to carry on unnoticed and go about your business. This is especially true when we’re out shopping. Most blokes hate shopping and for big blokes it’s even worse as we tower above the crowds and get looked at. We struggle to weave our way through busy stores and streets so it’s usually a right pain in the backside. Places like the tube are literally no-go areas for us.
So we order online wherever possible.
“One Size Fits All” Does Not Fit
This x 1000
Why do companies still produce ‘one size fits all’ when the size in question does not fit all? We beg to differ with the term. It gets our goats. It winds us up. It does not fit.
Yes, we’re big and tall but I’ve given up on anything that claims to fit all as I’ve got drawers full of gloves and hats that are not, and never will be, my size. ‘One size fits most’ is probably what these items should have on the label.
This is probably our biggest peeve: Be it ‘planes, trains or automobiles’. We can understand why Steve Martin was so sweary in the film of the same name – Watch it, he held a record for the most swear words in a film for a while! You may want to watch out if you’ve got kids around, otherwise watch this and bear in mind it’s NSFW!
But we digress, back to public transport: The seats are awful and even sitting off to one side does not help with the knee room. Long haul flights are the absolute worst for this and if you’re a big bloke in economy, then you’ll feel like a battery hen.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, the Tube is virtually a no-go area for any big chap and buses are not much better. Combine that with half the cars of the world being the equivalent of go-carts and you can see that transportation generally is very little fun.
But the special prize goes to aeroplanes with their tiny seats, extremely limited leg room and (heaven forbid) the smallest toilets in the world. I’d sooner spend a weekend in a caravan at Skeg Vegas than go through the trauma and humiliation of public transport.
The World Wasn’t Built for all Big men.
… It really wasn’t. But luckily, our range of clothing was.
