Well-dressed, heavy-set man

There are male fashions for heavy set men that look stylish and flattering. Just because you are heavy set doesn't mean you can't wear the latest fashions and styles.

Style Tips for Heavy Set Men

Men's big and tall fashions have come a long way. Many of the latest styles are now available in extended sizes so there is no reason to sacrifice fashion if you are a heavy man. Be sure to dress in fashions that flatter your specific body type and look best on you.


Try a shirt like Tommy Bahama's La Isla Striped Sport Shirt. This linen shirt is luxurious and has classic, vertical stripes that can be slimming and flattering. It has a softly structured point collar, chest pocket and back pleats.

Another choice for a shirt is Nautica's Big and Tall Cool Plus Polo Shirt. It can be worn for office casual or weekend attire. It comes in grey or red.


A V-neck sweater is a flattering style for larger men, as the neckline elongates your look. Try one like the Calvin Klein Ribbed V Neck. Its narrow ribbing is made from a cotton/cashmere blend making it a super-soft sweater. It has contrast color on the neckline for added appeal.


A great jacket can be worn with many outfits and for various occasions. Try a leather jacket such as the Kenneth Cole Reaction Big and Tall Estaban Leather Car Coat. It is made from smooth New Zealand lamb and is the perfect sleek style jacket for any man's closet.


A great fitting pair of casual pants is essential to any wardrobe. Find a pair that is comfortable and flattering such as Docker's Flat Front Classic Fit Pants. They come in big and extra tall sizes and have a waistband with an invisible extra inch that offers a greater level of comfort and an individually precise fit. They are wrinkle free and are a great style to own no matter what your size may be.


You can't go wrong with a great pair of jeans. Jeans can be dressed up or down depending on how you pair them. For heavy set men, try a jean in a darker wash such as the AG Brave Tinted Dark Blue Jeans. This jean has a cutting-edge look and is comfortable with its low-rise fit. It offers a contemporary, flattering look.

Build a Wardrobe That Works

There are endless clothing possibilities for stockier guys and plenty of places to shop for big and tall dress clothing and casual wear. Be sure to have some timeless staples in your wardrobe and add a few trendy pieces to freshen up your look.
