The more I search these days it seems as if there are more and more representation of bigger guys in the world of fashion and I love it. So today I’m bringing you another brand that is helping the wave of big guy fashion. Large Lad Clothing carries size XL-6XL. He created his clothing line after the common big guy struggle, looking for something nice in your size but come up empty handed.
So just like any other great entrepreneur when you see a void in the marketplace you try to solve it. James Weir the owner of Large Lad Clothing is filling that void by providing clothes for men of size.
In a expert from his interview with Chubstr he explains what started it all.
Chubstr: What made you decide to start your own big men’s clothing brand?
James Weir: I was a youth counselor for 17 years prior to starting Large Lad Clothing. After moving around a bit, I was ready for a career change, and I knew that I wanted to do something that would help people. One day, I was shopping for a 4X shirt, and ended up covering most of the city of Halifax trying to find one, and I went home frustrated and empty-handed. My wife said to me, why don’t you start your own big and tall store? I put together a business plan and presented it to the Nova Scotia Centre for Entrepreneurship Education and was accepted into a 9 month business program geared to help small business start ups. Without this program, it would have been difficult to get started. It gave me a real blueprint for how to start a business. We launched as a clothing and lifestyle label in January of 2016.
