The R.M Williams Story

As a proud Aussie company, we have always been happy to be associated with a proud Aussie. Reginald Murray Williams (better known by his initials R.M Williams) was a famous Australian entrepreneur who created his own distinct style of bushwear that became popular the world over.

From humble beginnings, R.M Williams started out as a rugged bushman, spending his formative years living off the land as a camel driver trekking through the harsh Australian outback. He later acquired leatherworking skills and began producing his own horse bridles, saddles and boots.

Through sheer resilience and dedicated craftsmanship, R.M Williams went on to build his small leather business into what is indisputably one of today’s most iconic and successful Australian brands.

After his death in 2003, his famous name has lived on through the proud clothing brand he created. While they still make the same style leather boots R.M Williams himself created, the brand has expanded into manufacturing a wide range of clothing from t shirts to jeans, knitwear to shoes. All crafted in that tough, durable style without sacrificing that hard working bushman-inspired vision that would make R.M Williams himself proud.

Here at Ron Bennett Big Mens, we have seen the range of R.M Williams  clothing specialized for the big and tall man continue to be our most popular items.

Our R.M Williams big t shirts and polos are some of our most sought after stock. Any king size man will tell you that it is hard enough finding a large size t shirt that fits, let alone one that looks as good on you as one of these R.M Williams polos.

If you like your casual shirts big, you can do no wrong with an R.M Williams designed shirt for that year round comfort and style.

Same goes for this R.M Williams big jeans. Made in Australia and built to last.

Ron Bennett Big Mens Clothing are proud of our association with R.M Williams and we believe every man should have the opportunity to look their very best, no matter what size they are.

As RM Williams himself once said, “A man doesn’t work any worse for looking a whole lot better”.

Big Men Migrating Online

Online shopping has given big and tall men the opportunity to shop discreetly in the privacy of their homes, without having to rush all over town to find large size clothes that fit.

Recent figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics show quite clearly that we are a nation whose waistlines are increasing year by year, with 50% more overweight Australian men than women. Despite these figures, Aussie plus size ladies are catered for much more than big men.

Big and tall men are often left in the dark and forced to endure the indignity of being turned away by the major stores.

All this could soon change, with online stores like Ron Bennett Big Mens Clothing offering mens wear designed specifically for the extra size male. Traditional bricks and mortar stores may be disappearing at an alarming rate, but if the analysts are correct, our shift to online shopping will provide Australian big and tall men new opportunities to find the clothing they want, at a size that fits.

Big men are fed up with being ignored by the major retailers. They want to find big t shirts that not only fit their size, but look great on them. Why should the big & tall man have to put up with inferior clothing by cheap brands at hefty prices?

At Ron Bennett Big Mens, we stock only quality brands. Large sized men can choose from such brands as RM Williams, Gant and Canterbury. Just three of the many popular brands in store or online.

Not everyone can dress like Matt Preston. Sure, he’s a big guy, but he has the advantage of being able to afford custom tailoring to keep him looking so stylish. Why can’t all big men be able to look as good as Matt Preston without having to pay top dollar? Ron Bennett Big Mens Clothing believe every man should have the opportunity to look great. No matter what their size.
