5 Flattering Fabrics for Big Guys
Don’t let anyone tell you that, as a big guy, you can’t rock any style of garment you choose. At Mega Men, we know that it’s utter nonsense - all you need to do is to make good use of fabrics, cuts and styles to accentuate your finer points and flatter and make the best of your larger frame.
Clothing Materials that Flatter Large Men
If you are wondering which fabrics are best for your physique, then keep reading the blog as we lay it out for you.
Good, old, reliable cotton. It’s comfortable, it’s relatively light but also quite hardwearing – it’s also breathable and keeps you cool on summer days. It’s soft and comfortable and drapes lightly and in straight lines over your frame.

Linen is breathable and strong and drapes even better than cotton. It’s a go-to fabric for plus-sized garments – it can hang loosely over the parts you want to conceal, or hug and highlight the areas you would like to be more prominent.
Wool can be both bulky and light, depending on the garment. Depending on how you use it, both can be good for larger gentlemen. There are times when a bulky jersey is appropriate, for example. However, it’s often best to go with lighter garments. As an example, here, try on some light woollen slacks and compare the effect to what you get when you wear jeans. You will find the wool does much more for you.
Having said that, there is nothing wrong with denim. Jeans are manufactured in so many varieties that you can always find a pair that suits you. Many designs today fit different shapes far better than more traditional ones. Some are heavier than others, some even have a bit of stretch in the fabric, which also makes the denim thinner than your standard, old-fashioned jeans fabric. Denim is not only used for jeans, of course. Tops, jackets, etc, can all be made from the tough fabric. They could all potentially work for you – the trick is to be sure to choose lighter designs and cuts.
Soft, comfortable, breathable, luxurious, silk, especially in the form of loose-fitting tailored shirts, is a must for the more fashion-conscious mega man. For best results, where possible, wear silk shirts untucked – that goes for most fabrics in fact.
