Big fashionable guys
By Kasia Hastings, 22 July 2016
Whether you’re of ceiling-touching height, made of pure muscle or just a bigger guy, if you’re a man of a grander stature you’ll know that’s it’s infinitely harder for you to find a) clothes that fit you properly and b) sizeable cuts that you’re actually into. These men master both and pull together fresh looks that suit their bodies. Here are a few of our favourite style giants.
Becoming the face of Palace's latest ad propelled Jonah Hill into the streetwear hall of fame, but he’s been a fan of cult skate brands for a long time. The actor utilises their cool oversized cuts on-screen and off, and here he goes for a long-sleeved Palace top with a big back logo and straight-leg jeans. All-black is a strong way to streamline your body and allows you to add colour elsewhere. He picks up extra style points here with a coordinated pup and pair of Yeezys.
At only 5'10", rugby player Dan Carter isn’t exactly a giant, but the beefy All Blacks player is a muscly guy who knows how to dress outside of the gym. While we’re sure the temptation to show off all your hard work in super-snug clothes must be overbearing, taking a leaf out of Carter’s book is a much more stylish option. He still wears skinny jeans and slim-fit tees, but is sure to leave a little to the imagination.
Being a champion boxer doesn’t guarantee you heavyweight style, but at 6'6" and almost 17 stone, Anthony Joshua weighs in as a serious sartorial contender. Out of the ring, he knows that loud prints and bright colours aren’t a great idea and that slim classic shapes in a tasteful palette will always work best with his body.
Jay Z has pretty much got the blueprint for big-guy dressing down three times over and here he shows how to dress with steez only a man of god-like physique can carry off. The suit jacket 'fashion drape' isn’t for everyone, but worn almost like a cape with a simple tee, black jeans and Yeezys, it’s pretty on-point.
