Where Paris - - Where Paris Promotion -

The Parisian house of Capel of­fers a fine se­lec­tion of ready-to-wear col­lec­tions for large and tall men es­pe­cially suited to the man of a grand stature like rugby player Alexan­dre Flan­quart, who is 2.06 me­ters tall and weighs 120 ki­los and who has be­come the house’s am­bas­sador. The house was founded 60 years ago and so Capel has ac­quired an un­par­al­leled and ab­so­lutely unique ex­per­tise and savoir-faire in the ac­qui­si­tion and fash­ion­ing of cloth­ing for tall and large men and has de­vel­oped cuts ad­justed into five sil­hou­ettes re­ferred to as con­for­ma­tions within each of which one finds over ten dif­fer­ent sizes. The five con­for­ma­tions are de­fined as small and am­ple, am­ple, tall and am­ple, slen­der, and ex­tra long. And so the house of­fers up to 55 sizes for both large and tall men for one gar­ment and cus­tomers are sure to find cloth­ing adapted to their stature.

It all be­gan back in 1958 when the house’s cre­ator Ray­mond-Henri Capel de­cided to de­velop large sized, ready-to-wear cloth­ing for men with spe­cific needs and over the years the house has be­come a ref­er­ence in the spe­cialty. Mod­ern cuts, ele­gance and style com­bined with noble fab­rics like li­nen, pure wool, Egyp­tian cot­ton and cash­mere are hall­marks of the house.

Capel’s epony­mous brand caters to gen­tle­men who are look­ing for pieces that are suited for their ca­sual days off as well as their busi­ness wear and Capel car­ries com­plete out­fits for any and ev­ery oc­ca­sion. The house’s own con­fi­den­tial line, Privé Capel Paris, is fash­ioned ac­cord­ing to the tra­di­tional rules of Ital­ian tai­lor­ing. The suits are made with the finest of fab­rics from Loro Piana, Cer­ruti, Hol­land & Sherry and Egyp­tian cot­tons.

Fine brands car­ried by the house in­clude Pal Zi­leri, Cut­ter & Buck, Paul & Shark and Derek Rose, Tommy Hil­figer, as well as the stylish and colour­ful pieces from Lacoste and Vile­bre­quin. Capel has been of­fer­ing for 20 years now large sizes ex­clu­sively from Pal Zi­leri known for its tra­di­tional craft Ital­ian cloth­ing. Paul & Shark is a pres­ti­gious Ital­ian brand draw­ing its in­spi­ra­tion from the world of yachting and re­volv­ing around ele­gance, per­for­mance and ad­ven­ture and its large size col­lec­tion is found ex­clu­sively at Capel. Derek Rose, a sup­plier to the royal fam­ily of Great Bri­tain, is spe­cialised in lux­ury nightwear and its large size col­lec­tions are also of­fered ex­clu­sively by Capel.

Lacoste’s sporty, ca­sual and tai­lored large sized polo shirts are found ex­clu­sively at Capel as well. An­other ex­clu­sive of­fer­ing from the house is a fine se­lec­tion of Cub­jeans, a pre­mium Made in France brand of jeans spe­cialised in sizes for tall men with re­fined cuts that never go out of style. If you are look­ing for gar­ments adapted to out­door ac­tiv­i­ties, Capel car­ries, ex­clu­sively, the lines for large and tall men of Cut­ter & Buck known for their use of state-of-the-art ma­te­ri­als like Weather-Tech, Dry­tech, Tel­fon and Anti-UV of­fer­ing great com­fort no mat­ter the weather con­di­tions. Spe­cialised in bathing suits for over 40 years, draw­ing its in­spi­ra­tion from the French Riviera, the house of Vile­bre­quin has cre­ated a col­lec­tion for tall and large men ex­clu­sively for Capel.
