5. James Gandolfini

James Gandolfini is an acclaimed actor who has played a variety of roles throughout his long career. But let’s face it, whether he likes it or not, Gandolfini will always be Tony Soprano. Seemingly born to play this larger than life character, James is also a big guy who dresses with style. An unashamedly large built man who can look great in a well-fitted suit or a simple polo shirt. Incorporating the right clothes for his build based on a perfect fit.

4. Zach Galifianakis

zach-galifianakis

Most famous for playing the strange and disaster-prone Alan from the Hangover movies, Zach Galifianakis was a veteran of the stand-up scene for years before hitting it big in Hollywood. On screen, Zach is often seen playing the slob who has little care for what he wears, but off-screen he is one seriously sharp dresser with great eye for big man style. At film premieres or snapped on the street, he is always seen wearing sleek suits and quirky casual wear. His eye for style makes this funny man a big mens fashion icon.

3. Jonah Hill

Jonah Hill

Skyrocketing to fame playing the awkward high schooler in 2007’s Superbad, Jonah Hill has gone from strength to strength on screen. Last year’s 21 Jump Street and his Academy Award nomination for 2011’s Moneyball has really solidified his status as one of the hottest young actors in Hollywood. While his weight has been fluctuating of late, Jonah is a naturally large-framed guy who isn’t afraid to be super-stylish.

2. Eric Stonestreet

ERIC STONESTREET

His role as the eccentric and outspoken Cameron Tucker on the hit show Modern Family has won him praise around the world, as well as two Emmy Awards. What we like about Eric Stonestreet is his “big and proud” sense of style. On Modern Family he is often seen wearing large size shirts that are not only the perfect fit for his shape, but are also bold and bright coloured. Outside the show though, Stonestreet has proved himself to be quite the snappy dresser, not afraid to sport a killer red-carpet tuxedo.

1. Matt Preston

Matt Preston-1

OK, maybe it’s our Aussie bias, but we are going with Matt Preston as our pick for the best dressed big man. His style is undeniable and the sheer audacity of single-handedly bringing the near-forgotten cravat back to our attention deserves some serious praise. Whether he is dishing out his opinions on a perfectly garnished seafood dish, or sprucing his latest book, Preston’s sharp fashion-sense sets him apart from the crowd. Often bold, sometimes brash, but always stylish. Well done Presto.

The Right Ties for Big Guys

TiesLooking for a new tie for work or that upcoming formal function? Well, if you are a big and tall man, there are some things you need to know before you jump in and grab any old tie off the rack. Your size and shape must be taken into consideration. Key attributes like your height, neck and yes, the size of your stomach does play an important role in choosing a tie that will compliment your individual look. For example, if you are a tall guy, you will obviously need a longer tie than the regular length variety sold in most department stores and menswear outlets.

Many big guys find it difficult to locate the right tie for their size and simply settle for these regular, standard length and width ties. This can create an uncomfortable look for big men and give them a disproportionate shape, drawing attention to parts of your body that are not flattering. The good news is that Ron Bennett Big Mens Clothing have just added a great new range of neck ties that cater specifically to the big and tall man.

Terruzzi Tie

The terrific range of ties from Terruzzi not only come in a variety of patterns and colours, but are longer and wider than ties available elsewhere. This is good news for big men. The extra length and width will make a significant difference in your overall appearance, giving you improved proportion and creating a more refined look and fit. This is the perfect solution for men with larger necks and bigger belly’s.

The Scarf – The Neck’s Big Thing for Big Men

Scarfs for big menYou may think that the humble scarf is nothing more than a basic length of fabric in a rectangular shape. Well, yeah…that’s true, but the scarf actually has an interesting history and is one of the most enduring male fashion accessories.

Here’s 6 historical facts you may not have known about scarfs:

1. In Ancient Rome, the scarf was in fact used as a kind of sweat towel instead of a fashion accessory. Men would wear them around their neck or tied to their belts. When the sweat built up on the face and neck, the scarf would come out to soak it up.

2. In 230 BC, scarves were worn to represent military rank in China. Chinese Emperor Cheng and his warriors wore scarves made of cloth.

3. In the 17th century, Croatian mercenaries also wore scarves to mark their rank.

4. It was in the 1800’s when scarfs began taking off as fashion accessories. Many believe this was largely thanks to Queen Victoria’s obsession with wearing them.

5.  In the 1900’s, a popular dancer named Isodora Dunca introduced long flowing scarves. While the style took off, it unfortunately lead to her freak death. While sitting in the passenger seat of a car, her scarf got caught in the spokes of the wheel and around the shaft, breaking her neck.

6. Men’s scarves became popular in World War 1 when they were worn by aviators who used them for warmth and to prevent chafing.

What a Scarf Can Do For YouScarf Group a

Us men have to make do with a more limited amount of accessories than women, so we should embrace a stylish, functional accessory like a scarf. They can not only keep you warm and toasty in the colder months, but they can also make a relatively drab outfit look much more interesting by adding colour and texture. The most appealing thing about a scarf to most men though, is their simplicity. You don’t have to be a fashion stylist to know how to wear a scarf. While there are certainly different ways to tie one, the most popular and reliable technique to put one on is simply throwing it around your neck.

Choosing Trousers – Tips for Big & Tall Guys

You may have noticed, as we have, that some big and tall men have no idea how to wear a simple pair of trousers. They either choose pants that are too baggy, too tight, or worst of all, sit way too low, hanging down under their waist leaving their butt exposed for all to see. Er, no thanks guys!

Whether you are big, tall or fall somewhere in-between, here’s some tips on choosing the right pants and jeans for you.

For the Big gent:

-Choosing dark coloured trousers is a good idea for big men as they tend to be more flattering than brighter tones.

-If you want to look more lean, we would suggest avoiding pleats and going for regular cut, straight leg pants. They have less fabric build up (and therefore less unnecessary bulk).

-Skinny cut pants and jeans are a big no-no for larger men, they will attract unneeded attention to your legs and create bulk in places you want to avoid. Instead, go for full cut, flat front pants.

Dress pants with a front pressed crease creates a vertical line down the leg, making them seem longer and giving the big man a slimmer look.Big Men Pants

-Wear your trousers high, but not too high. Just below your natural waist if possible. Wearing them low will more often than not require a belt, which is pulled tight underneath the belly, causing the stomach to fall over it and create that unwanted bulge.

-While fashionable among younger chaps, low rise pants and jeans should be avoided by the big man as they do nothing for the large physique.

-A bigger belly means it is more difficult keeping your pants from sliding down. We suggest a flat front, traditional or relaxed cut style pants. Simply buying the biggest size available won’t solve the issue. It’s all about the perfect fit.

-While it’s hard to beat a stylish belt for practicality, big guys should think about the alternative of wearing braces. They can be an attractive option while also a more comfortable one.

For the Tall gent:

-Tall men should always make sure they get full length trousers, as even the smallest show of ankles or socks creates an unflattering lanky look. Your pants and jeans should reach at least the top of your shoe.

-Being tall means you are able to wear virtually any style pants, from regular cut, boot cut to flat front. You just need to choose pants with longer inseam and leg length. Remember that fit is everything.

Tal Guy Pants-High-waisted pants and jeans are rarely a good look for tall guys. Try to keep your pants beginning just below the waist to create the most flattering look.

-Tall men often suit a stylish pair of chinos, which never go out of fashion, or tailored cotton pants.

-If you are tall and thin, the extra fabric of pleats can sometimes work against you to create a baggy look. Tall guys want their pants to look as sharp and crisp as possible.

-Try to avoid supper skinny jeans as they create a towering beanpole effect on a tall man.

In Conclusion

These are just a few tips when choosing your next pair of pants. The biggest tip we can give though, is to take charge of your size. Big or tall, you have got to dress with confidence and pride. Own your body shape and size!
