Men, you so fat you need an XXXXXL from Debenhams
Men are getting bigger, taller and increasingly in need of tent sized structures to cover their manly frames. According to Debenhams, demand for larger sized menswear has increased by 126% in the last few years.
But apparently it’s not JUST because men are becoming sedentary corpulent chubbers who sit on their man sized asses eating Dominos hot dog stuffed pizzas (although there’s probably quite a bit of that). They’re getting taller, too –trousers with a 36 inch inside leg are becoming more and more popular, according to the department store.
At the Debenhams Big And Tall section they’ve not only been strengthening the floor, but they’ve had to introduce a whole new set of sizes to cater for these fat buggers man mountains. Their old XXL maximum size is cutting off the circulation, so they’ve had to introduce XXXXXL to accommodate their er..girth. The dimensions of Big and Tall’s best sellers make you wonder whether there’s a secret race of Giant Haystacks roaming the earth. Their most popular top is XXL and their top selling trousers are a belly busting 44 inches.
So while women try to change their bodies to squeeze into ludicrously small clothes, it seems that men just demand a marquee to cover their beer gut. Is this evolution or a concrete manifestation of masculinity in crisis? Ah, sod it - let's all just buy some bigger pants!
