Father’s Day Gift Guide for the XL Man

LACOSTE PIMA COTTON V-NECK TEE

Have you gotten your Father’s Day plans all in order yet? We’re working on that here. It’s going to be a little crazy this year, but I think we’ll be able to treat Hubby in the manner that he deserves. He is a good man.

Anyway.

I recently learned about this store called DXL (short for DestinationXL), which is a retailer that targets to men over 6’3 with 40 to 46 inch waists, and carries brands that were once unavailable to them, like Lacoste, Polo Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Cole Haan. To give these customers a better and more comfortable shopping experience, DXL has bigger and wider aisles and dressing rooms. Additionally, stores also provide on-site personal shoppers and custom tailoring to ensure customers are getting the best style and fit available.

To be honest, there aren’t really any super tall men in my life, so I had no idea that shopping would be so difficult for them. I do know that shopping for boys can be crazy tough, so I’m not surprised. It’s really sad though, that stores don’t stock for males as much. In my opinion, if you’re going to carry boy’s or men’s lines, then do it all the way or don’t do it at all. It’s less frustrating.

I know that whenever I go into a store and see the rows upon rows of choices for girls, and only one row for boy I get annoyed. I mean, really. It’s not like I’m just trying to stuff a closet with fashionable options for the heck of it. They actually NEED to wear clothes. Go figure.

So! DXL was kind enough to send me over a Father’s Day gift guide that I thought you might appreciate.

    Hey! What a super helpful post this has been for me so I really want to thank you! I messed up last year trying to find a great Dad’s day gift for my father in law because I wasn’t sure of his size. This year even though I had it, I still wasn’t sure what to get. A quick google search brought me here and this has been very helpful! Thanks again. Keep up the good work here!
