Pants for Big Guys... Where to Buy??

Postby ttuguy421 » Mon, 28 Jun 2010 11:48 am

Hey everyone, I am looking for some places to shop for mens pants in the size of US 44-46. I have had a hard time finding places that carry my sizes in work clothing. Anyone have any good suggestions of places that won't break the bank??

Thanks!

yes, stop running around finding ready made pants !

I just got 2 pairs made for 100.- and 120.-respectively, very good quality (wool) and takes no more than about 1 week.

There are many Tailor shops at the peninsula plaza shopping center right next to the hotel.
PROUT....the only way out !

how much does a decent pair of tailor made plus-sized trousers cost at peninsula plaza?

Any discounts for multiple purchase eg three trousers , or 5 trousers?


edit: oh wait... 100 and 120 were the prices???

yes, S$ 220.- for 2 pants (size 43) with inner lining, 2 back-pockets and coin-pocket inside the right-side pocket.

for "bulk order" discount you have to find out yourself.
pm me and I can give you the location.

I'm a happy customer.

Actually, that's pretty reasonable when you consider that I bought trousers from stores like "High and Mighty" in Melbourne that charge Aus$170 per pair of trousers that size.

Thanks for the ideas guys, the tailor is about the best option I have run across as well. Anyways, am back in the States for a few weeks now so I shouldn't have any problem finding fat boy pants here :P

In a way, that's funny, as I was bordering on fat-boy 2.5 years ago at 40" so instead of keep trying to find pants that would fit (with my short 29" inseam!) or spending huge amounts of money, I went on a diet and lost 26 kg and went back to a 31" waistline. Now, when I go back to the US I can't find any pants to fit cause Americans all almost all obese now, and the bloody stores rarely carry sizes that small anymore! :x
