For big and tall men, sweaters can provide a wonderfully flexible fashion alternative. Sweaters are flexible, comfortable, and will fit a variety of forms. Most importantly, sweaters are almost always in fashion, and can suit a variety of occasions of varying levels of formality.

Finding the Right Sweater for Big and Tall Men

Big and tall men often have specific desires for the style of their sweaters. For larger men, it can be helpful to have an elastic band at the base of the sweater, as this aids in shaping the sweater to better suit the wearer. With the assistance of an elastic band at the bottom of a sweater, there are fewer potentially embarrassing displays of the skin underneath, as the sweater will remain snug and not ride up the torso.

Men both big and tall will likely benefit from wider necklines in sweaters. Big and tall clothing stores and online shops will frequently give neck measurements on their sweaters, so as to better assess the sweater's ability to fit on the customer's body. It goes without saying, if you are purchasing any clothing on the Internet or through catalogs, it is vital to have accurate measurements of yourself.

Big and tall men also benefit from various-shaped necklines in their sweaters. A V-necked sweater, for example, can provide a slimming shape for the figure while eliminating the hazards of potentially constricting necklines. Big and tall shops have gotten very good at keeping up with the latest fashions and even providing designer clothing, so it shouldn't be terribly hard to find a good-looking, well-fitting sweater, regardless of your size.
