Big-Generally refers to large-sized clothes, sizes XL-6XL+, but is also used to specifically indicate clothes like shirts cut with extra room or girth around the torso. "B" is commonly used in the size designation to denote a big cut, thus a 2XB is a 2XL shirt cut with extra girth around the torso.
Big & Tall-A category of clothing, usually used to reference men's clothing (the women's equivalent is often called, "Plus Size") that generally spans regular sizes XL-6XL+, big sizes XLB-6XB+, and tall sizes MT-6XT+. Big & Tall retail locations usually also carry portly, short and extra-long suits, extra-long ties, large shoes, extra long belts, undergarments, lifestyle accessories and orthopedic items for large and tall men.
Tall-Clothing cut for tall men, 6'+, sizes MT to 6XT+,- typically with longer sleeves, torso and tails, lower pocket placement and slimmer cuts for a more proportional look. Tall pants generally have high rises and longer inseams. "T" is commonly used in the size designation to denote a tall cut, thus a MT is a medium shirt with taller proportions. There are some Tall clothes that are also designated as Big, to indicate that they also have extra girth around the middle, in addition to being proportioned for a taller guy.
On Sunday, December 14, I will be performing as the narrator of the Holiday Sing-A-Long at the Ventura Theater. This show will feature performances of holiday classics and Disney favorites featuring familiar faces from Ventura's local music scene including Aaron Orbit, Robin Ryder, Shane Mack, Marcella Tambouris, Shane Nautu, Nicole Jackson, and many others, all curated and produced by Loanne Wullaert, who owns the Ventura Theater. Loanne, a classically trained opera singer, who will also be performing, has been producing these events the last two years as a way to feature local talent and to support local charities. This event will support Toys-4-Tots and admission is free with the donation of an unwrapped toy. It's a matinee show that starts at 3pm. For the record, I'm singing a New Orleans Jazz version of Frosty the Snowman. AND its my birthday, so be there!
