Although some would say that every day is “Father’s Day”, as a Dad myself I couldn’t agree. I know my place and it’s a long way down the pecking order, somewhere just behind the cats and goldfish. To cats, of course, we are just “the staff” and the goldfish couldn’t care less as long as we keep the cats away from their bowl.
As an American import, Father’s Day was founded in 1908 as a poor relative to Mother’s Day and is traditionally held on the third Sunday of June. It has spread across the globe and is now observed in 138 countries although not all on the same day.
The humble neck tie features heavily in Britain as an apt Father’s day gift although casual shirts, t-shirts and jeans are giving the tie a good run for its money.
As a big size menswear specialist, Large and Tall Menswear has in stock a terrific range of gift ideas in sizes 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL, 6XL, 7XL and 8XL. Let’s take a closer look: In recent years casual shirts have proved themselves to be a definite favourite as a gift for big men. Cooler to wear than polo’s or t-shirt, our ranges of short and long sleeve shirts feature a wide variety of plains, checks and stripes from brands such as Weird Fish, Double Two, Bar Harbour, Espionage, Raging Bull and Drifter. We select the brands we stock carefully to ensure that each garment fits well, is a superior quality and available in larger sizes at the right price. The t-shirt is undoubtedly a classic staple of men’s fashion with it’s flexibility as key. All year round we sell plain t-shirts in a variety of colours in sizes from XXL (46” to 48” chest) right up to 8XL (70” to 72” chest). In addition we have a number of printed t-shirts from brands including D555, Espionage, Weird Fish and Raging Bull. If t-shirts are the classic staple of a big man’s wardrobe then the denim jean is the back-bone; rarely out of place, dressed up or down, smart or casual; a pair of jeans are always a welcome gift and as they are available in waist sizes 30” to 70” and leg lengths up to 38” inside leg then largeandtall.co.uk has something for everyone.
And we don’t forget those tall Dads either. Our range of casual tops from Danish manufacturer North 56⁰4 offer a stylish choice for taller men in sizes LT, XLT, 2XLT, 3XLT and 4XLT; add this to our ranges of longer length trousers, jeans, shirts and yes, if you must, longer length ties then Dad won’t go short for a present.
This Father’s Day falls on Sunday 21st June 2015. Put the date in your diary and buy the ‘ol man a gift he will appreciate from Large & Tall Menswear of Royal Leamington Spa.
