We are all designed to be different and so are clothes. One style and fit will look great on you and another will be not so great. So it is important to find the best options for your build and personal style.
In order to make this process easier we have provided size information under each garment.Once you have measured your chest, neck or waist you will be able to determine the best fit for your build. In some cases we have added notes on the brands or garments which indicate if it is a generous or firmer fit. You can then decide accordingly on the most appropriate size. If you are still unsure, please email your sizes to us and we can recommend the best option for you.
Tailored clothing (Suits, sports coats) are sized in chest measurement with a suit trouser being 12cm smaller than the Chest (e.g 132cm Suit will come with a 120cm trouser)
(NB We do have suits where Jackets and trousers can be purchased separately so this size rule does not apply) Extra Tall fittings in Suits and Sports Coats are 6cms longer than a regular fit.
For best garment performance, please follow care instructions carefully. Tailored garments should be dry cleaned. Extra care must be taken, with any synthetic fashion garments not to over use hair or cosmetic products as this can cause any dyes to run or cause fabric damage.
These are sized in either XL or XB sizes. XB sizes are normally a specific fitting designed for bigger men and do not generally change each season.
Anything that can worn with a belt is sized in centimeters or inches. Anything with an elastic waist is sized in XL’s.
Jeans are about the only category which is still generally sized in inches. Please refer to the chart below to convert.
This refers to the length from the front of the pant to the crotch.
A low rise sits lower and high rise is worn higher on the waist. We have a huge range of big mens jeans and offer many different types fittings.
The main advantage of Replika and Greyes jeans is that they offer a lower rise. This means the front of the waist is lower and if you wear your jeans under your tummy they will sit better around your natural waist and the crotch will not hang down too low. Also the leg size on these brands is not too big so if you need a bit more waist room rather than leg room these are a good option.
Each brand is different so if in doubt let us know your requirements and we can suggest some great options.
Under each garment there is a size chart indicating actual sizes. If the product you are looking at has no size chart, please let us know and we can advise sizes for you and also ensure one is added. If a product has no size chart it also could be because the products sizes are already noted. For example a size 152 suit jacket, is a 152 as in 152cm chest.
