Around this time last year, UK brand River Island joined the fashionable group of retailers catering to us plus size women, with the introduction of RI PLUS. And now almost one year later, the brand launches a new addition to their collection, one that we are beyond hyped and geeked about. YESTERDAY, we caught wind that River Island just launched the RI Big & Tall collection for the big and tall stylish plus size male.
Our Big & Tall range ensures you won’t miss out on the freshest pieces dropping because of your size. River Island
Like RI Plus for women, the plus size men selections is going to be an extension of their fashion and core range, (very similar to ASOS Plus Men to ASOS) in sizes up to XXXXL, 48″ waist and 38″ inside leg, to be precise (talk about a tall order to fill).
Take a peek at what’s to come from the new plus size men line…

Right now, they have a few basics and essentials, but I am really curious how they flush out this collection and range… right? The new selections will still the have latest trending pieces from the River Island core group, just in Big & Tall sizes! Plus, you can check for updated staples, like statement printed shirts, hoodies and T-shirts!
“We’ve conducted a lot of market research prior to this launch and found that there was a real demand for stylish menswear that accommodates more body shapes. Bigger guys don’t all just want to wear basics and we are very excited to be able to bring a more inclusive offering to the fore across all of our categories, from the latest trends to timeless staples.” – Nick Tahir, Head of Menswear Buying, River Island
Ohhh and they are JUST getting started. There will be 117 pieces in this collection! Ohhhh and this also includes shoes up through a 13 too!
The RI Plus Men collection is now online at Riverisland.com!
Brands are really stepping into and getting more plus size fashion options out here, for both men and women. Granted most start off with the essentials and do not just jump in full fledged fashion, I appreciate the recognition and attention being paid to us, the plus consumer. I mean, our dollar is just as green, right? I look for more options to continue!
Now to see how far the fashion is served and how they evolve the range! Right? Right.
So what can we do you want to see from the River Island Plus Men collection? What do you think about the collection?
