100% British Made
Our clothing is cut and sewn by a small team in the north east of England.
For Men Of Any Size
All sizes from small to 5XL. Our model is 6ft 1, 19 stone and wears 3XL.
We use manufacturers who deliver high quality and ethical standards, who pay their staff a living wage.
Our focus is to create a clothing range for men which is sustainable and friendly to the environment.
I, like so many others these days, am a larger fella due to my love of alcohol and shovelling food into my face. I don't make excuses for my size and neither should you. I'm fat and I'm ok with that and if other people have a problem with it, it's just that, their problem.
One of the perks of being a big man is the endless joy of scouring shops and the internet for some material that covers those lumps and bumps and still looks good. My problem has always been that I find something I love but surprise, surprise they don't do anything larger than a 2XL, if you're lucky. I don't mind a slim fitting shirt, but I wish the fashion industry would stop expecting men who are 2XL to look like The Rock, when we look more like James Corden. If you're going to offer a slim fitting 2XL, then do some bigger sizes for us to slide our bellies into, so we can look good as well.
In the end I thought f*ck it, if no one else is going to do it, then why don't I? That's where we come in! The first thought was for a plus size men's range but that quickly changed to an all-inclusive range. If I wasn't going to offer small sizes, then I'm no better than any other fashion brand not offering larger sizes.
Then came the name, Big Fox. I wanted something to reflect what we do but still be somewhat marketable. So, we are Big Fox, for big f*cks. Embrace your size and don't give a fox what anyone else says.
Why Should I Buy From You?
Based In the UK
We're based in the UK, Newcastle specifically and we try and source all our materials from the UK, local to the north east if possible. I can't guarantee everything is from the UK but I sure as hell will try. Fabric is sourced from a UK company and always will be but at times it may be small things like a label or button where it's just not viable but we will try to be as transparent as we can.
Manufactured In the UK
The manufacturing is done in the UK. We use a small independent manufacturer close to home who try and use staff that have been out of work for some time. Mainly older women who have usable skills but because of the skillsets they have and their age they find it more difficult to find work.
Ethical Designer Menswear
We ensure to use manufacturers who deliver the highest quality and ethical standards, who pay their staff a living wage. Because we guarantee this, our prices reflect it. Our focus is to create a clothing range for men which is sustainable and friendly to the environment.
Our Models Look Like Real People
We use models who look like real people. If you've had a look round, you'll see that our model is not what you'd typically see. That's me! Research shows that most people want to see real people modelling clothes. No one ever looks like the models in the adverts so how can you judge what something will look like on someone who's not ripped to shreds with washboard abs? I've got a great set of man boobs and a gut to match, that's what real people look like whether you like it or not. 61% of adults in the UK are overweight so why do we try and hide it?
Our Models Look Like Real People
We promote body positivity and mental health. There are some great things happening around body positivity at the moment but if you look the majority of this is for women. That's great and so it should be happening, but men suffer too and because we are not as vocal about it, then it's not seen as a big as a problem that it actually is. There lies the issue, silence. Men need to open up more. Suicide is still the biggest killer in men under 50s and that's just ridiculous. I can guarantee that someone you know is suffering and more than likely you don't even know. The stigma around mental health is slowly breaking down but so much more can be done. We want to shout it from the rooftops. Help is out there but the first step is to admit to yourself that you need help.
Big Fox Fans
QUALITY PIECE OF KIT
When I first purchased this t shirt I thought how good can a top be. This question was answered when I received the parcel. Quality packaging and a quality product. Really looking forward to the future of Big Fox and what’s to come.
OUTSTANDING QUALITY, OUTSTANDING STYLE
I'm a big lover of plain tee's as a simple go to piece of menswear, and this ticks all the boxes. The Big Fox signature tee has such great quality in both feel and fit. Looking forward to future pieces from the brand!
Top quality, great fit will buy again from this range.
