Have a need for suits in larger or extended sizes for yourself or your partner? We know that it's not only plus-size brides and feminine-identified folks who can have challenges finding wedding wear that feels good. Here's a run-down of some brick and mortar and online stores to find custom-fit and larger-sized suits and groom gear for plus size grooms, big and tall grooms, dapper brides, and other masculine-identified folks who want to rock the perfectly-fitting wedding suit. You choose your identity, we'll supply the list!
Let's go shopping :
Boutique and custom options
Duchess Clothier tailors made-to-measure custom suits, garments, and costuming for all types of wedding garb. We've been showing off their stuff for years. Here's their portfolio to get your brain going.
Vigilante Labs and Machete & Sons are sister companies. Vigilante Labs makes suits for women, transmen, and dapper folks. Machete & Sons focuses on historical-sized suits for folks of all sizes. Both companies create completely bespoke formalwear that's 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.
Everything at Indochino can be custom-made to your measurements, which is always ideal for making sure you're fitting your body well. Plus, they've got some really beautiful and less conventional options.
You'll start with your measurements at Black Lapel and then go into mega customization mode. So many options, so little time!
Scotweb Tartan Mill
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.
Big box options:
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.
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 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.
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'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: Jos A. Bank
Rent a custom-fit suit online at Jos A Bank 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.
