Online menswear for men with large sizes, 4xl and larger
When do we speak of large sizes of men's clothing?
We speak of large sizes of menswear from 2XL or collar size 43. More about collar sizes and regular sizes later in this blog.
Unfortunately, we see that in this segment the range of trendy, high-quality clothing, for a fair price, is limited. A shame of course. Fortunately, we offer an alternative at Suitable. Every day we work to keep our range of large size men's clothing up-to-date. It must comply with the latest fashion trends, at a fair price.
Why is the selection of plus size clothing for men so limited online?
We have roughly 2 streams within men's clothing. Regular sizes and everything beyond.
Regular sizes include collar sizes from 38 to 43 and ready-to-wear sizes from S to XXL. 80% of men fit this size curve. That is why most clothes are offered in these sizes. If you fall outside of this, the choice will immediately become a lot more limited.
If you want to buy your plus size menswear online, you have a much greater chance of success than if you just walk into a store. Also at suitable we sell the large size clothing for men mainly online.
Our webshop sells many 4xl garments. These can be shirts but also large men's polo shirts. Apart from 4xl clothing, we also sell 3XL, 5XL, 6XL and 7XL in our webshop. Often the items sold in 3XL, 4XL, 5XL, 6XL, 7XL and larger are focused on functionality. Very good of course, but we would like to add a style change to it.
What is the difference between collar sizes and off-the-peg sizes in plus sizes for men?
You have probably had a shirt in 4XL or collar size 45, where it is completely unclear to you which plus sizes for men this is exactly. The clothing industry / clothing industry often uses the following sizes: 4XL, 5XL, 6XL, etc. These sizes are mainly used for sweaters, T-shirts, polos, casual shirts, etc. While many dress shirt brands use the collar size in cm as the standard, eg: 43, 44, 45, etc.
Different fits and sizes in men's clothing
In the clothing industry we also have full sizes, quarter sizes and length sizes. If you are a man who likes a Burgundian “lifestyle” then you may not be tall but have a relatively large belly size. In this case, you will need a different size than someone who is both large and tall. Both fall into the “plus size” category but in a different way.
Sizes or fits of shirts suitable for the man with large sizes
Today there are many fits. Are you a big man and do you need a plus sizes because you have a large waist? Then go for:
- Regular fit (slightly fitted) or
- Comfort fit (no waist, falls straight)
A regular-fit is often very slightly fitted, while a comfort-fit even more room on the waist. The measuring arc can differ per brand, so to be on the safe side it is always wise to consult it.
Not sure what your size is? Then do the following:
- Measure the circumference of your neck with a measuring tape, or have this done (always keep one or two fingers space between your neck and the measuring tape).
- Record the number of centimeters.
- This is your collar size.
As a rule of thumb you can now also estimate your clothing size, see below.
If you have measured a collar size 44, there is a good chance that your clothing size will end up with an XL. Did you measure size 45 and 46? Then you usually end up with an XXL in the standard sizes. As a rule of thumb you can maintain that collar sizes 47 and 48 correspond to clothing size 3XL. To be sure, always view the size chart of the brand because this can differ per brand. With collar sizes 49 and 50 you can assume a size 4XL. Do you have 51 or 52 cm in neck circumference when measuring? Then this gives a clothing size of 5XL according to the rule of thumb. The thumb rule states that with a neck size of 53 or 54 cm, the clothing size corresponds to a 6XL. Of course we always recommend to consult the size chart of the brand because nowadays huge differences can be seen.
Note : As you can see, the large men's clothing standard size goes per two collar sizes. Especially much larger brands such as Olymp and Casa Moda choose to keep all dimensions of the shirt the same, and only increase the collar size by 1 cm.
Large men's sizes or fits of trousers and trousers
Not every tall man is the same and everyone has a different build. That is why, in addition to 'very' large sizes, there are also 'quarter' sizes. Quarter sizes are great for the small but hefty man. See a list below in which the proportions become clear. Mind you, each make and model can be slightly different. Always consult the size chart of the brand itself.
- Waist size 38 - If you have a waist size 38 and length size 30 or 32, a quarter size 28 will probably fit you too. If you have a length of size 34, this corresponds to a clothing size 56. With a length of 36 or 38 inches you go towards the length size 57/114
- Waist size 40 - If you wear jeans with waist size 40 and length size 30 or 32, this generally corresponds to quarter size 29. If you have a length of 34 inches, you generally wear clothing size 58. If you wear length size 36 or 38, then chances are that size 59/118 will fit you well.
- Waist size 42 - If you wear size 42 inches with length 32, this corresponds to a quarter size 30. If you have a height of 34, this corresponds to clothing size 60.
- Waist size 44 - Waist size 44 inches is often only available in a length of 32 inches and 34 inches. this then corresponds to clothing size 62.
- Waist size 46 - Waist size 46 comes in one or two lengths at many brands. namely 32 and 34. This corresponds to clothing size 62.

Slim fit: Garments with this designation fit tightly but are not cut extremely slim.

Comfort fit: often falls straight and has no waistline.
We often see that the large sizes are sold in a regular-fit or comfort-fit. By choosing one of these fits you keep the space around the waist. As a tip, I would like to point out the filters.

As a man, which designs can you best wear if you wear large sizes of men's clothing?
Do you have a size more? Do you often wear size XL, XXL, 3XL, 4XL or larger? Then it can be nice to know which designs will suit you well and which designs you should avoid. With some designs you are able to conceal your posture where necessary. Many men with a plus plus sizes feel better in a garment that makes them slimmer instead of a design that accentuates the curves. Think of dark plain colors, light / small diamonds, fine patterns or coarse patterns / prints. Avoid the following designs: Coarse horizontal or vertical stripes and large gaudy diamonds.
Sweaters and cardigans in large sizes: Gant, Casa Moda. Shirts and shirts in large sizes: Olymp (dress shirts), Ledub, Gant, Casa Moda. Trousers brands in plus sizes: Meyer, Pierre Cardin, Brax, Alberto, Mac Jeans and Vanguard.
