ASOS prides itself as being one of the few retailers to get it right when it comes to fashionable women’s clothing in extended sizes. Now, they’re sharing the wealth with dudes, too.
ASOS now offers plus and tall offerings for men, with sizes up to XXXXL and lengths up to 38 inches. The U.K.-based fashion powerhouse said it will carry an “extended size range for over twenty brands including Burton, Wrangler and Noose & Monkey.”
The market for trendy clothing above size 12 is pretty dismal for women, and the experience for men can be just as bad. Back in 2015, Target employed only one male plus-size model, Zach Miko, who told The Huffington Post it wasn’t until he started modeling for the brand that he ever “put on clothes that made me feel good about myself.” Shopping for clothing, he said, was “terrifying and embarrassing.”
Needless to say, Twitter users seemed to find this news a bit more exciting than ASOS’ other recent menswear launch.
Bravo, ASOS. It’s about time. Check out more looks from the collection below:
