A Bit of History
Starting way back in 2009, Big Dude has come a long way from very humble beginnings. Big Dude initially started in an attic, but with demand for large men’s clothing high, Darrell soon looked into providing more and more clothing for people in sizes 2-8XL. With expertise in ecommerce and the online world, Darrell set up an online store and Big Dude Clothing was born!
