We keep hearing good things about River Island’s plus size collection, and now they’re doing their utmost to hold onto the top spot of high street plus size fashion in a new big and tall men’s range. The succinctly-named ‘Big and Tall‘ collection is a size extension of the brand’s wardrobe essentials and fashion forward menswear. This includes everything from outerwear to tops, bottoms, footwear and accessories.
River Island has carefully selected 117 options from their mainline menswear range to extend into the Big and Tall collection, making high street style ever more accessible for big men.
Hero fashion pieces in the offering include Harrington jackets, rip & repair sweaters and raglan sleeve tops in neutral shades of stone, soft grey and moss green. Tailored mid-blue washed denim jeans are teamed with white trainers for a contemporary look. The washed pink bomber jacket is a statement piece that adds flair to a simple ensemble. Style staples are peppered throughout the offering and are the go to for wardrobe essentials including the white oxford button down shirt, slim chinos and washed denim jacket.
“We’ve conducted a lot of market research prior to this launch and found that there was a real demand for stylish menswear that accommodates more body shapes. Bigger guys don’t all just want to wear basics and we are very excited to be able to bring a more inclusive offering to the fore across all of our categories, from the latest trends to timeless staples.”
– Nick Tahir, Head of Menswear Buying, River Island.
Big and Tall additional sizes will extend to 48” waist, XXXXL/55” chest, and shoe size 13. The 117-piece collection will be available from March 2017 with prices ranging from £15 – £75.
