With oversized t-shirts trending again in 2020 we expect this area of business to boom, and so do the manufacturers, which is the reason so many of them are now stock sizes 5XL and 6XL. Add that to the fact that man is getting bigger, and it's easy to see why these oversized garments are getting more and more popular.
Over the past 50 years, the average man has grown 6.5cm in height, 13 cm in chest size and has put an average of 7.5 cm on his chest size. These figures show that man is not only getting taller, but he is filling outwards too! Not only is he eating more these days but working out more too. These statistics are as much to do with people getting hench as they are with obesity.
Whatever the reasons, it's a fact that each generation is larger than the last, and clothing companies have been quick to cater to them.
Here we discuss which t-shirts are suitable to be printed on and are available in 5XL and 6XL.
