The Big, Big, Big….Big Man

Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s many internet friends she has asked the Manolo the question.

I am writing to you on behalf of two of my friends who are both in the same predicament: they are too large (even by American standards) for most nice, good quality shirts. By large I mean 6’5″, 300 pounds, 54″ and 58″ chests (19″and 20″ necks, 37″ sleeves I believe) but without the gut that usually accompanies a wide man. Where does a good friend (and girlfriend to one) buy quality business dress shirts and casual polo shirts for barrel-chested athletes? If you could even just recommend a brand, so that I know where to begin. Thank you for your insight!

Manolo says, it is no secret that the Manolo he was not graced with the elegant shape of the body, and that as the boy, the clothes that best fit the little Manolo they were found in racks of the “husky”. So the Manolo he knows the thing or two about the fat boys.

This question you ask, it is very easy. First, the Manolo he would recommend to you that your big men they consider the custom made dress shirts. The best of the American makers, it is the Borelli on the 60th street in the Manhattan. The prices they start at $300 and go up from there.

The less expensive option for the custom made, is the Ascot Chang, who gives the good value for the money. The shirts they start at $100 of the American dollars.

However, if this it still sounds too pricey, than the Manolo he would send you to where most of the giant athletes of the professional American sports go, to the Rochester Big and Tall.

They are very good at what they do, which is fit the clothes onto the bodies of the big mens. They even carry a few of the big designers like the Burberry, the Ralph Lauren, and the Ermenegildo Zegna.

Finally, the Manolo, he does have the one reservation about the Rochester. They have recently been featuring the sports clothes in the style of the Tommy Bahama, the heavily-patterned Florida-resort look that it is not good on the big mens.

Manolo says, the big mens, they should stay with the solids and the small patterns like the checks and the narrow stripes. The bold. colorful patterns they can make the big man look like the sofa of the parlor.
