Trend To Try: Oversized


Flashback about 10-15 years ago when rappers wore XXXL tees… Remember how horrible that was? Men decided to wear t-shirts that were definitely 4 sizes too big for them. Which lead to a shift for slim silhouettes and where some guys took it too literal. Purchasing shirts in “schmediums”.


A few seasons back, designers were creating shirts that were fitted but exaggerated in length or altered the proportions slightly. Thanks to designers like Ricardo Tisci and Alexander Wang, they updated the oversized trend. Many retail brands like Topman, ASOS, Zara, and Urban Outfitter now sell various t-shirt fits. Longline, Oversized, Skater, Boxed, and Relaxed are the different types of fits. This trend works best with a pair of slim of skinny pants to offset and contrast against the loose top. Think of proportions when deciding how and which one to buy and wear. Wearing it as a layering piece works too. Pick a longline tee to wear underneath one your favorite graphic tees. Or let it hang below your jacket or sweater hemline. Oversized sweaters and jackets are also an option to think about too.



Deciding to take this trend on the dressed up route? Don’t be afraid to wear it with a blazer or suit. Brands are even producing button downs with a similar cut. This trend isn’t for everyone and you will hear some people criticize it. If you are considering on trying the trend, look at street style photos instead of celebrities, runway shows, or fashion campaigns and editorials. It gives off a more urban vibe and can be an easy update to your wardrobe. Buying a few oversized tee’s is the most easy and affordable way to wear this trend.

Head turner!

This is my 2nd Ella Bing wooden tie and it again has surpassed my expectations. The gift set to include cuff links was an incredible value to boot. Every time I wear this collection, I have friends, colleagues, and students simply marvel and the beautiful, intricate, and classy design of these bow ties. These are a MUST have for the well-heeled gentlemen.

Great Service For A Great Tie

The service from Ella Bing was so great! Not only was the tie fantastic it came packaged in a cigar box. His cool is that?

Classic and unique

Very classic looking glasses with a modern edge and touch. The bands are different and with the wood and silver it makes them very versatile. I have worn them with a suit, shirt and jeans and to the pool. Works in all environments.


Clark was knowledgeable of the items in the store. A lot of the items are locally made , and the music was off the hook , the hats were beautiful . Nice atmosphere.
