They aren’t being built like they use too anymore, I’m not sure what’s in the chicken, but the next generation seem to be getting taller!  I should know, my 16 year old has just etched over the 6ft mark and the scary thing is, he isn’t the tallest in his class!

Out size and body shapes are changing but our fashion designers are still cutting out patterns off archaic sizing and measurements.

Tall and big guys were such an afterthought in the market. Either you’d be hard to find no more than a small section in the back of the store, or the selection was heavily dated and somber with no consideration to the fit. Let alone the environment, which was oppressing.

Enter Johnny Bigg. Established in 2014, Johnny Bigg was created with the big and tall guy in mind. Recognising our guys desire to be well dressed and comfortable, Johnny Bigg provides him with a one stop shop focusing on affordable, relevant fashion and footwear for the everyday guy, never compromising on quality, style or fit.

Julian Hayman, General Manager of Johnny Big said “We wanted to create a destination for the big and tall guy so he knew he was understood and catered for. He could walk into a Johnny Bigg store and, know whatever he saw on the shop floor would fit and look good”.

Johnny Bigg utilises expertise gained from decades in the menswear fashion industry offering a comprehensive range in sizes from XL to 9XL Tops, 34” to 54” waist, 42” – 58” suit jackets and also shoe sizes from 9 – 16 UK. Not to be forgotten, our tall rangebuilds additional length in garments for the tall guy, making allowances for extra height.

So who is the Johnny Bigg customer? “He’s a fun guy, doesn’t take himself too seriously, enjoys playing or watching sport, family and likes to have fun with his clothes. He wants to look good and feel comfortable whilst being on-trend. We are a head to toe destination ranging from casual to smart”, Julian said

Offering a diverse product mix including; suiting, shirting, chinos, denim, dressy and casual attire as well as footwear and accessories, Johnny Bigg provides versatility and a complete wardrobe for the bigger and taller guy, ensuring the highest quality and fits across our range.

With Autumn and Winter approaching fast, and their new range now released in in stores across the nation, it’s all about chunky knits with textured detail. Burgundy and blue hues are key and seen throughout their shirts and long sleeve tees. Jackets are big this year, and the Camel Wool Blend Coat is a must-have piece that can be worn casually with jeans or dressed up with dress pants.

Launching initially with an online store, we have since opened +60 doors across New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Northern Territory, Western Australia and New Zealand, with the newest store opening at the Sunshine Coast Plaza.

JOHNNY BIGG has a host of friends of the brand including QLD star of The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise, Apollo Jackson.

“As a taller guy with a bigger frame l often find it challenging to find on-trend well-fitting clothes. Johnny Bigg is a haven for guys to find flattering clothing and I’m very excited that they are now able to offer this to guys on the Sunshine Coast” said Apollo.
