Saint Herridan has masculine styles specifically for women, transmen, and dapper brides and grooms in general. They're also totally customizable in the neck, chest, and sleeve to avoid any weird gapping in the chest and to accommodate larger sizes and different types of body shapes.

Indochino

Vintage big and tall treasures

Army of Modern Men on Etsy

Etsy's a great place for custom sizing generally, but this store seems to have a good handle on larger vintage styles, if that's your goal.

Carnival of the Maniac on Etsy

Another amazing Etsy find, this store has loads of kick-ass vintage finds, many in larger sizes. It would take a little digging, but it might be worth the effort if you're looking for something really different.

Somewhere in the Attic on Etsy

Here's another vintage option on Etsy for finding that hidden gem. Again, a little more of a dig, but a fun option just for general shopping, too!

Big box options:

Banana Republic

Banana Republic only goes up to size XXL, but it's an option for anyone in that range or below who needs extended neck sizes, longer sleeves, and larger pockets.

Men’s Wearhouse

You can get your suit or tux tailored to measure at Men’s Wearhouse, which is often the easiest way to go, and ensures that you can go back and have it fixed if needed. Just watch out when getting onto their chronic mailing lists.

Burlington Coat Factory

Burlington Coat Factory carries a large selection of really affordable suits and separates for bigger guys.

Nordstrom

Nordstrom has a fairly solid selection of big and tall suit options, and the prices have a large range so you'll likely find something within your budget.

Macy's

Super similar deal to Nordstrom: Macy's has a large range of prices and a pretty solid selection. These big box stores just lack the customization options of some of these other smaller joints.

Jos. A. Bank

The suits at Jos. A. Bank run a little pricier, but they had a solid selection of big and tall options, albeit in mostly pretty traditional styles.

Belk

Belk's suits and separates are fairly affordable with extended sizing options. There's not a huge selection of styles, but if you're going for a more traditional look, this could be a good option.

Online rental option: The Black Tux

Rent a custom-fit suit online at The Black Tux with no sizing hold-ups for just yourself or your whole wedding party. Plus, you can talk to a human if you need to, which is always a bonus with custom sizing.

Longer neckties

The Tie Bar has options for longer neckties in 63" and 67". You can also customize ties from one of our faves, Cyberoptix.

  1. I can also highly recommend Denver Bespoke (http://denverbespoke.com) for custom work. He did an amazing job with my husbands wedding attire; and he did it all without ever meeting my husband in person. (http://offbeatbride.com/2013/06/dallas-sideshow-wedding)

    We took measurements, and AJ made a muslin mock up based on those. We took tons of pictures of how that fit, put safety pins in places where we wanted things tighter etc, and he made adjustments accordingly. My Sasquatch was so handsome. My only sad of the day was that we had a heat wave the weekend of our wedding and Sasquatch didn't keep his full suit on long after the ceremony.

  2. If you're looking for some historical wear (well around the 1800s and early 1900s) Gentleman's Emporium, and Western Emporium also have some great plus size selections for men.

  3. AWESOME post – exactly what I need for my big guy as we prepare for his brothers' wedding

  4. I'm pretty sure Dark in Closet is actually a Chinese knock-off site. I can't find anyone who has ever actually ordered from there to verify quality (hey, some Chinese knock-offs are pretty darn close to the original but much more affordable), but I can promise you at least some of those pictures are stolen. I recognize several of the items from various designers across the internet, including at least one dress stolen from Wedding Dress Fantasy (one of our own Offbeat vendors). Given the prices and questionable validity, I wouldn't risk ordering anything from this site.
