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.

Dropping Hints for Fathers Day

Disgruntled Dads unite! It’s time to stand up for your fatherly rights and start getting the presents you truly want on Father’s Day.

You all know the familiar routine; you tear open the wrapping on Father’s Day and find that ugly t-shirt that is several sizes too small or that ghastly pair of bright pink socks you wouldn’t be caught dead wearing. Then comes the Oscar worthy performance; The forced smile, the struggle to pretend looking pleased with your gifts. We know they mean well, but if you want to receive the gifts you actually WANT on Father’s Day, you will have to start being more cunning.

As luck would have it, a huge amount of new spring stock has just landed at Ron Bennett Big Men’s Clothing, so this is a great opportunity to start dropping some subtle hints and if all goes well, you may just get the gifts you have always desired for Father’s Day.

Here are some tips on how to successfully drop hints:

Verbal hints

A few harmless complaints over the breakfast table about how your clothes don’t seem to fit anymore is a good start. Mention how you saw some great looking new Polo’s in stock at Ron Bennett Big Men’s.

Envy

Casually tell your kids how envious you are of your mate’s wardrobe. Talk about how he always seems to wear great looking casual wear and you never seem to have enough clothes for yourself!

Timing

Get in early. Be cunning and put the idea into their heads several months beforehand and then never mention it again. If you’ve left it too late this year, make sure you get in early next year. The beauty of this method is that they will think the snazzy jacket or pair of shorts they bought for you was actually their idea.

Guilt

Don’t be ashamed to get competitive. If you really want something special, why not casually tell your kids how your work mate’s children bought him a great looking present for Father’s Day last year. Give them a little push to get them upping the stakes. It’s a cheeky method, but it may just get results!

Product Placement

Get covert and leave a Ron Bennett Big Men’s catalogue open in the kitchen or on the coffee table with the items you like circled in a bright red marker. If this doesn’t get through to them, nothing will!

Dads of the world have no more excuses. Use these hint dropping techniques and you will be finally getting the Father’s Day gifts you want. If you have left it too late this year, start preparing for next year.

Good Luck!

What to Wear to the Footy

Footy finals are approaching fast, so no matter what code you follow it’s a great time to get out and support your team. Ron Bennett Big Mens have a huge selection of garments ideal for watching the game from the sidelines or the stands.

Of course, for the hotter days, it is hard to go past a sporty looking Polo Shirt.

The style and versatility of a Polo is perfect for a rough and tumble game of footy on a warm afternoon. But this time of year, the weather can be a bit more unpredictable. The key for watching your favourite team in comfort this season is to layer up. It may be chilly when you make your way to the big game, but who knows how heated you are going to get when you are there? That’s why wearing layers is your best bet.

You could start with a long sleeve shirt, like one of these from Blazer.

Then you can cover up with a sweatshirt or stylish knit. Canterbury have some of the best sweatshirts available, while this Blazer knit provides both comfort and warmth.

For those really chilly days you’ll need something warmer like this double breasted overcoat from Bennett, or one of these great looking jackets from Breakaway.

And to top it all off, you’ll need one of these Sovrano scarves to shield you from the brisk wind.

These are just a few suggestions for your trip to the footy this year, for more ideas why not check out Ron Bennett Big Men’s full range from our online store.

Brand Focus: CANTERBURY

The Canterbury brand is one of our favourite and most popular brands here at Ron Bennett Big Mens. Originating from the Canterbury province of New Zealand dating back to the late 1880’s, they built their foundations in the world of rugby but have gone on to produce some of the most sought after and respected sports and leisure wear available.

On the field, Canterbury have been responsible for manufacturing the official jerseys and accessories for some of the biggest international sporting teams, with their CCC logo adorning the uniforms of major Rugby Union, Cricket, Soccer and Rugby League teams.

Off the field, Canterbury have cultivated their reputation by producing high quality leisure wear inspired by their sporting origins.

We have always admired Canterbury for their ability to capture the sporting spirit in their casual wear and our customers give us great feedback on their range. Canterbury Polo Shirts have always been popular for guys. They offer a relaxed weekend look suitable for a backyard barbeque or a cheer from the sideline at your local club match.

Our pick for the colder months though, would have to be a Canterbury Sweat Jacket. It’s hard to beat the quality and craftsmanship, but above all that, they simply give off a certain relaxed, sporty cool as they shield you from the chilly winds.

Ron Bennett Big Men’s stock a great range of Canterbury clothing for men online or in store. You’ll find Canterbury T Shirts, Track Pants, Polo’s and much more.
