New Choices for Men’s Big and Tall Shirts

By Krista Mayne

Big and tall men have a lot of options in long-sleeve shirts these days. Gone are the days of settling for buying short sleeve shirt because the long sleeves shirts are not long enough, or buying a shirt and rolling it up to disguise a sleeve length too short. Now there are plenty of long sleeve big and tall shirts on the market. Here are some of the current trends in the men’s big and tall shirt department.

Some popular big and tall shirts are wrinkle-free big and tall shirts. Now when you travel, you can look great too, as many of the big and tall shirts on the market are easy to care for, just wash and dry, shake out the wrinkles and you are good to go.

Another current trend in men’s big and tall shirts are shirts with a pattern print. As a big and tall man, you can get away with wearing any type of pattern whether it is stripes, plaids, or checks. All of these patterns work for a big and tall man.

Texture is hot this season in big and tall shirts. You are not limited to plain cotton or polyester fabrics. Now you can choose from fabrics such as corduroy, denim, suede, or canvas.

The most interesting types of big and tall shirts that I have found are specialized big and tall travel shirts. Many of these big and tall shirts have special features such as sun protection made from a fabric rated for its level of ultraviolet or UV protection. Other big and tall travel shirts have insect repellent built into the shirt- so you can enjoy the outdoors without being bothered by pesky bugs. There are also big and tall shirts made with unique fabrics that keep you cool as they whisk moisture away from you, so you can arrive at your destination fresh smelling and dry. Some big and tall shirts on the market are made especially for those who enjoy outdoor sports such as fishing shirts with extra pockets for all of your fishing gear.

Big and tall shirts are most prevalent on the Internet, as many of the retail stores do not carry big and tall shirts.
