In Partnership with DXL

Are you big and tall and getting ready for fall? If so, DXL definitely has you covered. Since 2005, the popular retailer has offered the most extensive selection of XL men’s clothing and shoes. And when we say “extensive selection,” we’re talking every price point, style, and fit you can imagine. It comes to you from in-house brands such as Oak Hill and True Nation, along with iconic labels like Polo Ralph Lauren, True Religion, Brooks Brothers, Lacoste, and more. They’re also the only retailer to carry designer clothing as well as Lucky Brand Jeans in exclusive washes that you won’t find elsewhere.

If you’ve shopped through DXL’s website or at one of their 200+ brick-and-mortar locations, then you already know that they put you in the best possible hands. Between their in-house style experts and ample range of sizes, these folks leave nothing to chance. Here are four hand-picked selections to properly layer you up and keep you warm as the season changes. Each one is crafted with precision and affordable to boot. Check it out.
