Big and Tall at Jos. A. Bank
In recent years, the big and/or tall gentleman witnessed brands expand their selections to fit their needs. Although they have more options and diversity in selection, larger gentlemen should research prior to shopping. Companies seeking to address this demand have different specifications for "Big and Tall". The following is a guide to shopping big and tall at Jos. A. Bank.
Our big and tall collections for suits, sportcoats and tuxedos include chest measurements of 44-60 and feature options for gentlemen who are longer (tall) or who are stouter with a larger abdomen (Regal Fit - our most generous cut). When ordering a Big and Tall suit your pant size will be predetermined. Suits and tuxedos size 44-48 will come with pants 5" shorter than the jacket size; subtract 4" for jacket sizes 50-52 and 3" for sizes 54-56. We recommend a waist alteration limit of 1 ½". Greater changes may compromise the appearance of the trousers. If your waist size is out of this range, please review our suit separate selections to find the best fit.
A big concern for taller gentlemen is finding long style dress shirts that don’t leave excess material around the abdomen. We offer "tall" sizes beginning at 16 ½ (neck) – 37 (sleeve) through 20 – 36. For men of a greater carriage, we offer "big" selections from 18 – 33 to 20 – 35
Our Big and Tall collection of dress pants cover shorter and stouter gentlemen to the tall and thinner fellows. Our most generous cut selections, Regal Fit, range from a waist size of 40 to 50 and feature short, regular and long rises (the measurement from waist to crotch). However, our overall selection extends to a waist size of 56 with an inseam of 32 inches. When shopping for casual pants note that our selection includes 36 (waist) x 36 (inseam) to 56 x 32.
Our extended selections are not limited to business attire. We offer some of the finest casual wear for our big and tall customers. Sportshirts and sweaters are available from 2XL to 4XL.
