The Fashion For Men – Every man, irregardless of height, skin colour or size, wants and needs to look and feel good! However, in fashion, just as it is with almost everything else in life,what works for A doesn’t necessarily guaranteed a fantastic result with B!
Different rules apply to different people based on their physical specifications. Today’s article focus is on all the plus sized men out there with this guide that’s going to furnish you with simple but very practical tips on how to shop for pants for fat guys!
1) IT’S ALL IN THE FIT
When it comes to this, as it is with men of all sizes, the best, no, “perfect fit” would be what’s known as a “close fit”! This means that the pants should not be too tight (hence highlighting what you’d probably like to hide), nor too loose or baggy (hence exaggerating what you already have in plenty if you know what I mean!). Its like the tips about shirt that fit the body.
To achieve that,only settle for that pair of pants which you can just about grab a fist-full of excess fabric from when worn! That’s on top of having just about an extra one inch allowance on your waist. Length-wise, it should start from your waistline down to just slightly under your ankles, just enough to keep your socks from sight while standing and without dragging under your shoes when walking.
That fit will ensure that you not only look good but that you can also move about quite comfortably too!
2) WHAT ABOUT THE FABRICS/MATERIALS?
Synthetic or man-made materials are a big no-no! Nylon, polyester, etc. With the exception of wool, natural fabrics are your friends!
Pants for fat guys should allow a lot of ventilation since most big guys usually feel hot most of the time plus sweat a lot! And that’s a quality that synthetic fibres don’t have. However, natural fabrics like cotton and linen allow easy aeration that leaves you well ventilated, which means better comfort for you and easy breathing for the poor souls around you that would otherwise have to deal with your rivers of sweat!
3) WHAT ABOUT COLOURS AND PRINTS?
Neutral shades work best, the blacks, whites and the greys. However, you can throw in an off colour in your selection just to break the monotony, though great caution should be taken! You wouldn’t want to be mistaken for a mascot or a clown in your bright orange pants, would you?
Avoid prints, especially bright or bold ones! Say no to the polka dots, pinstripes, big checked patterns and such! Also,anything that encourages people to focus on your “width” should be avoided, e.g pants with horizontal stripes!
4) ANYTHING ELSE?
Yes, always try them on first, complete with your belt and shoes and the essentials that you always carry in your pocket (keys, phone, wallet)! Then walk around and feel if you are completely comfortable in them.
And with that, you should be more than adequately equipped to bag yourself great pants for fat guys, enjoy your shopping!
