Modeled by snowboarder Jamie Anderson and freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, the uniforms also include a wool sweater and jeans with moto inspired seaming. As for accessories, Ralph Lauren designed a navy wool beanie, leather belt, brown suede gloves with fringe and hand beading and a pair of matching boots with red laces.

silk polo shirts ‘The Boy next Door’ is an awful guy

big and tall polo ‘The Boy next Door’ is an awful guy

January has historically been the month when film studios dump their less than desirable product into movie theaters. Ticket sales slow down in the winter after the holiday season is over and it’s past the deadline date for the zillions of awards that the entertainment industry likes to bestow upon itself, so there isn’t a better time for Hollywood to clear out the dreck. When you then add a film starring Jennifer Lopez, whose alleged talent has long escaped me, in the January equation, the results are almost guaranteed to be astonishingly awful. “The Boy Next Door” certainly doesn’t buck the odds.

Claire Peterson (Lopez) is a suburban LA high school literature teacher. J Lo is not going to let playing an educator stop her character from wearing the latest clothes, having model like hair and makeup, and living in a modern Southern California mansion. All is not peaches and cream for her, however, as she is separated from her husband, Garrett (John Corbett), who is an information technology executive. Claire caught Garrett cheating on her during a San Francisco business trip. Claire’s dorky teenage son, Kevin (Ian Porter), desperately needs a fatherly or big brotherly figure.

Right on cue, in steps Noah Sandborn (Ryan Guzman), a strapping 20 year old from San Bernardino who has moved next door to Claire so that he can take care of his ailing grand uncle. Noah can quote ancient Greek literature, fix pesky garage doors and take apart and put back together any car’s engine.

He asks Claire to come over and help him roast a chicken on a rare, rainy Saturday night in Southern California. One thing leads to another, as they say. The fact that Guzman, a former mixed martial arts star,

looks like a combination of Channing Tatum, Jason Priestley and James Franco makes this steamy scene with J Lo credible which is more than I can say for most of this film. Like Lopez, Guzman gets to wear preppy clothes for the entire film, which adds to his hunk factor. He looks like a Nautica or Polo Ralph Lauren model who, in fairness, does possess some acting ability.

Of course there are the expected regrets on Claire’s part the following morning. When she tries to break it to Noah gently that theirs was a wonderful one night thing that won’t ever be repeated, he turns into a raving, maniacal stalker who will do whatever is necessary to make sure that she never reconciles with her estranged husband, who is trying to patch things up. It will be over his dead body if they do. The audience in the theater that I was at started laughing as if it were watching one of the “Scary Movie” sequels as Claire idiotically puts herself into one risky situation after anther without using a shred of common sense, such as breaking into Noah’s basement when he isn’t home to try to find the video he made of their lovemaking session, or entering the home of a friend who is in danger even though the electricity has been turned off and it’s pitch black outside. Add to this nonsense the over the top burning farmhouse finale, which is cliched cinema 101.

Just about the only time when “The Boy Next Door” provides any true food for thought is in a scene wherein Claire’s best friend, Vicki (the always welcome Kristin Chenoweth), sets up a double date for them. During the dinnertime conversation Claire tells her date that she teaches “the classics,” and she is upset with his reaction. “The classics are nice but we need to prepare students for the jobs in the workforce as well,” he replies. The scene abruptly ends with the filmmakers trying hard to make the guy look like a jerk when in fact there is a lot of merit to his point. The reality is that expensive liberal arts colleges are under a lot of scrutiny exactly because there is a disconnect between what is taught and its value in the economic marketplace.

The entertainment trade magazine Variety reported that “The Boy Next Door” was shot in 25 days on a shoestring $4 million budget (Lopez is the film’s producer), and it certainly shows. In the film’s defense, it can be argued that like “Showgirls” or those cheesy Ed Wood movies, it’s so bad that it’s actually good.

polo rugby kids 12 best clothing brands for big and tall men

oregon high school water polo 12 best clothing brands for big and tall men

The average British man stands at around 5ft 10in, and weighs around 12 and a half stone. And if you ask someone who goes far over those measurements, they’ll probably tell you that the fashion world is hardly forgiving.

But there’s no need for righteous indignation, as the market is changing. A number of high street brands have recently launched ranges to suit people with wider, longer frames, while there are an ever increasing number of brands which cater specifically for them. After all, the human race has been getting steadily taller and larger for the past century, so we may as well look good while we’re at it.

The most important thing is to have a real idea of what your measurements are. Of course, you can never beat going into a shop and trying on something first, but if you’re buying online, have a tape measure handy. Different brands have different ways of denoting their sizes, which can be somewhat confusing at first, but each of the ones we’ve featured have useful online size guides. And of course, we all have different body shapes and sizes, so not every brand’s sizing will fit every guy.

We’ve included a mix of brands, some catering for purely tall, slim guys, while others cover both tall and large. And for each entry, we’ve picked out one of our favourite products, to give you an idea of what to expect. We’ve mainly gone for brands with impressive own ranges, but many of the websites we’ve listed also carry clothes from other companies be sure to check those out too.

So whether you’re in the market for a new suit that nails the required length without hanging like a cape, or simply a T shirt which provides comfort and coverage in all the right places, this list will have you covered.

As you might guess from the name, this brand is purely for tall men specifically, tall, slim men, with an average customer height of 6ft 8in, and range of tops and bottoms which should fit men up to 7ft 4in. What’s more, the brand is run by tall, slim men, so it knows the struggle that comes with elongated limbs. Its website sells a number of other brands Eterna, Juicy, Mish Mash and Girav to name a few each of which has been chosen by 2Tall for their tall man suitability. Its own brand pieces, which are characterised by a laid back simplicity, cover tops and bottoms, while other brands offer suits and footwear.

IndyBest pick 2T Tall T shirt: 15

Here’s a collection which caters for that awkward middle ground between tall and really tall specifically, between 6ft 3in and 6ft 6in. It comes courtesy of the designer clothing brand Ted Baker, and was designed with the help of former World Champion swimmer Mark Foster (6ft 6in, if you were wondering). Its suit jackets and shirts offer longer torsos and sleeve lengths, while the rest of the collection including tops, T shirts, bottoms, jackets, knitwear and footwear is casual erring on the side of smart. When it comes to sizing, the main thing to get to grips with is the numbering system for tops, which runs from 4 to 7. If you would usually opt for a large, you’re a 4; if it’s usually a XL, you’re a 5, and so on.

IndyBest pick T for Tall Monictt Diamond Print Cotton Shirt: 99

The high street giant Asos has good form when it comes to inclusive clothing, with its Curve range for women, as well as an impressive selection of petite clothing. In February, it launched two distinct ranges for men: Plus and Tall. In terms of style, both are what you’d expect from Asos, offering on trend, millennial pleasing pieces, covering just about every item of clothing you’ll need. Sizes go up to 8XL on the Plus side of things, while Tall is aimed at guys who top the 6ft 3in mark, with leg lengths extending to 38in. Alongside the ever growing own brand selection, you’ll find pieces from brands such as Polo Ralph Lauren, Cheap Monday, Puma and French Connection.

IndyBest pick Asos Tall Bomber Jacket in Blue: 30

Jacamo is probably the best known “big and tall” brand out there. It has a huge selection, including smart and casual clothing, footwear, sportswear and accessories. It’s a mixture of own brand, flagship collaborations with celebrities such as former cricketer Freddie Flintoff, and other well known brands, such as Nike, Ellesse and Helly Hansen. Shirts and tops go up to 6XL, with regular and long fits, while trousers are available up to a waist size of 64in (although, as things stand, they only extend to an inside leg of 33in. Jeans, meanwhile, extend to 36in). And, to correct a popular misconception, Jacamo’s sizes go all the way down to a small. It’s also part of the Ethical Trading Initiative.

IndyBest pick Black Label Belted Smart Stretch Chino Regular: 30

Skopes is one of the most widely stocked suit brands in UK department stores, and provides abrilliant,
polo rugby kids 12 best clothing brands for big and tall men
extensive range of big and tall suits. For jackets, its chest sizes go up to 62 inches, while trouser waists extend to 52 inches as a result, we think Skopes is best suited to men after bigger suits rather than longer, as the inside leg lengths only go up to 33in. Whether it’s for regular office use, a wedding, a black tie event, or anything else that requires you to suit up, Skopes has it covered. Expect reasonable prices and excellent quality.

IndyBest pick Darwin Suit Jacket Black Stripe: 219.95 for matching jacket, waistcoat and trousers

Here’s another of the main high street retailers to have expanded into the big and tall market or, as Next calls it, Longer and Larger. It covers all the areas of Next’s standard range, with suits (up to 52in chest, 46in waist), formal shirts (21in with regular and long sleeve lengths), and formal trousers (46in waist, 37in leg). There’s also an extensive casual range, with shirts and tops that go up to 4XL and, as we found, are better for the man who needs something both longer and larger. Casual trousers and jeans extend to 44in waist and 35in inside leg, while footwear goes up to a size 15.

River Island launched its online only Big Tall range back in February, offering size adjustments on some of its best selling menswear pieces. It offers sizes up to 4XL so, again, it’s for the man who needs both big and tall with trousers up to a 48in waist and 38in inside leg, the latter setting it above a few of its high street competitors. Currently, there are around 150 items in the range, range from bold, eye catching prints to the more reserved shirts and trousers.

IndyBest pick Big and Tall Pink Floral Short Sleeve Shirt: 25

This is one of the very newest big and tall clothing ranges out there, having only launched back in April of this year. Around a third of M total menswear range is available in big and tall sizes, and this proportion is set to increase in the coming months. So the clothing on offer is what you already know from the retailer: smart and sophisticated. It’s ever popular suits extend to a chest size of 54in and extra long lengths, while the suit trousers boast a 37in inside leg. On the casual side of things, tops go up to 4XL, and the jeans and chinos go up to 35in inside leg.

IndyBest pick Big Tall Chinos with Stormwear: 29.50

For the more substantial bloke, chinos can be a mixed bag. Some can be comfortable and versatile, others can be too tight fitting and restrictive. But we’re fans on this pair, which has a fairly stretchy waistband, meaning that even if the measurements are an inch or two off, you’ll still be comfortable. The fit is relaxed, too. Made using sustainable cotton, it also boasts water repellent Stormwear techonology, which means you won’t get quite as soaked if you’re caught out when the heavens open. Available in seven muted tones.

This brand has been in existence for over a century now, and specialises in qualityAmerican made clothing. It’s range is huge, covering most of the clothing and accessories spectrum, but it excels when it comes to the smarter side of things. Rather than create an entirely separate range for its big and tall clothing, Nordstrom has modified the lengths and fits of existing pieces to cater for larger measurements. Just how large those measurements go, as well as whether they’re available in both big and tall sizes, varies quite a bit from item to item, but the selection is certainly plentiful. Expect exceptionally well made, durable pieces, both from Nordstrom’s own range and from the huge number of other brands it sells, most of which are in a similar mould to Nordstrom.

IndyBest pick Nordstrom Smartcare Classic Fit Plaid Dress Shirt: 55.98

If you work in an office with a strict, smart dress code, this might be just about as flamboyant as you’re allowed to get, with its red, chequered design. We chose it because it’s available in both big and tall sizes, with sleeve lengths of 37in for tall and big, and neck sizes of 18.5 just for big. It’s in the so called “classic” fit, which, as Nordstrom puts it, is “the most generous cut” on offer. If you’re after something slimmer, there are tighter fits available. Also available in purple and blue colourways.

Here’s another brand with over a hundred years of experience in menswear. Burton is best known for its suits, and a decent number of those are available in big and tall sizes, with jackets going up to 52 long, and trousers offered with a 35in inside leg and waists up to 52in. If you’re after something more casual, then Burton has you covered too, with a sharp looking collection ranging from oxford shirts to bomber jackets, going up to a 5XL.

IndyBest pick 3 Piece Navy Pin Dot Tailored Fit Suit: 134

Department store Debenhams carries a number of other brands with extended sizes Ben Sherman, Centaur and Red Herring among them but we’ve focused on its own brand, The Collection, which dominates the Big Tall section. It’s a largely formal selection, with a range of solidly made shirts, trousers, accessories and outerwear. It’s shirts, of which there are over 150, will fit chests sized up to 64in, and the sleeves have a few inches added on compared to the standard sizing. The trousers, meanwhile, offer waists up to 48in and inside legs up to 35in.

QUEENSTOWN A month after they were closed because of roof damage caused by heavy snow, a dozen stores at Prime Outlets at Queenstown remain closed “until further notice.”

The stores were closed on Feb. 10 when the second of two blizzards within days of each other dumped heavy snow on the area.

“We continue to work with a team of engineers and contractors to assess and determine the best course of action to correct roof damage two of our buildings suffered during February’s snowstorms,” the company said in an e mailed statement from spokesman Sue Helondovitch.

“We are working diligently to create a timeline for these repairs.

The company emphasized on its Web site that the majority of the stores at Queenstown are open and that it is working “diligently” to re open them.

Asked for more specific information on the damage and efforts to address it Helondovitch said “that is the information I am able to provide at this time.”

Mike Savage of the Middle Department Inspection Agency in Easton is the Town of Queenstown’s zoning administrator and is responsible for the inspection of buildings within the town limits, including the outlets.

“A structural engineer reviewed all the buildings and found some signs of structural weakness,” Savage said. He said that while nothing collapsed, some of the roofs sagged noticeably under the weight of heavy snow.

Savage said no one is allowed in the buildings until the repairs are completed.

He said he is keeping in touch with the company’s engineers as they work to “specify a fix” to make the buildings “structurally suitable” so they can again meet the requirements of the building code.

Once the repairs are completed, Savage will inspect the buildings before issuing the proper permits, he said.

The closed stores are Chesapeake Gourmet, Paper Factory, Nike, Polo Ralph Lauren, Timberland, Juicy Couture, Michael Kors, Gymboree, Nine West, Nautica, Tommy Hilfiger and Yankee Candle.

FLEMINGTON Two men involved in a three county burglary spree have been indicted by a Hunterdon County grand jury on a count each of third degree conspiracy to commit burglary.

The charges against Michael A Davis, 54, of Irvington, and Terrance Worthy, 59, of Newark, were announced in an indictment unsealed in June. The charges stem from a burglary reported on Dec. 6, 2016, at the Polo Ralph Lauren Outlet in Liberty Village in Flemington, according to court documents.

Davis was also indicted on third degree burglary and second degree theft charges in connection with an Oct. 29, 2016, theft of over $100,000 in jewelry from Sherman Jewelers in Raritan Township.

Davis was charged in December with breaking into six jewelry stores throughout Central Jersey since June of last year and making off with nearly $1 million in merchandise, it was previously reported.

Trio charged in $1M jewelry store burglary spree

Davis had accomplices in three of the break ins, including Worthy, who faced one count of conspiracy. The burglaries occurred between June 7 and Dec.

“Davis broke into stores in the early morning hours and took a variety of jewels and watches valued at nearly $1 million,” the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement announcing the arrests in December.

Worthy was charged in the Polo Ralph Lauren burglary.

Davis was held $195,000 bail while Worthy was released on his own recognizance, the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office stated. The investigation involved 17 law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and out of state law departments.

New fashions are driving the market that didn’t exist last year,” said Ellen Ornato, a spokeswoman for Meriden based Bob’s Stores. It’s the first time in a long time there’s been a major change in fashion trends right at back to school.”

A casual look featuring jeans, denim shirts and hiking boots has been popular for the past few years. But minor modifications from season to season have stirred little excitement among shoppers, retail experts say.

At the same time, customers have been more conservative with their spending, no longer outfitting their children from head to toe with new outfits for school. Apparel has not been a top priority, and customers have been waiting until merchandise goes on sale or until their children can see what their schoolmates are wearing before buying.

What makes slow buying doubly painful is that many retailers count on back to school sales as one of their five hottest selling seasons second behind Christmas for many.

But area retailers this year are counting on a renewed interest in fashion to kick start sales gains. Although they would not quantify those gains in dollars or percentages, Connecticut retailers surveyed said that they would be anywhere from modest to strong.

Anytime you get a new fashion in, business picks up,” said Joseph B. Siegel, vice president of merchandising for the National Retail Federation. It’s kind of been long overdue. We’re overdue for a turnaround.”

Parents nationwide are expected to spend an average of $363 a child for back to school items this year, up 12 percent from last year, according to an American Express retail study of 1,000 consumers.

Clothing will comprise the largest portion of that budget, followed by supplies and textbooks, the survey shows. At the top of the list are jeans, followed by shirts, underwear, sneakers, non denim pants, and coats and jackets.

The survey also found that nearly half of all students are considered style and brand conscious by their parents. The top brand names were Levi’s, followed by Nike, The Gap, Reebok and Guess. Other popular designer labels included Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Polo/Ralph Lauren.

Ornato said Bob’s still expects to sell quite a few pairs of Levi’s jeans and denim or cotton twill shirts. But she said the store expects that consumers will focus more on the new denim fashion styles.

Boys will want baggie jeans by JNCO and BOSS, jersey knits with a lot of zippers and buttons, and ski sweaters with a stripe across the middle, she said. For their feet, Ornato said,
usmc polo shirts Back To Spending
they will buy new styles from Nike and Vans and Airwalks canvas or suede shoes with high rubber side walls.

Some girls will emulate the boys, even buy jeans that are twice their size, Ornato said. Most will buy hip huggers and fit and flare jeans and polyester pants, which are fitted through the waist and flared through the legs, as wide as 23 inches. The material, which is softer than the denim of last year, is also decorated more around the waist.

For tops, girls will buy fitted short sleeve shirts, even through the early fall, Ornato said. On their feet, they will wear chunky heeled shoes.

Robin Reibel, a spokeswoman for Boston based Filene’s, agreed with Ornato that a major part of back to school business will center on new denim fashion styles. Filene’s also expects to sell a lot of satin, lace and stretch velvet tops for girls looking back to the 1960s. Boys’ fashions, she said, will be retro of the 1960s and 1970s.

Overall, we think there’s a renewed passion for fashion,” Reibel said. Whenever there’s passion and excitement, there are great business opportunities.”

Still, Filene’s and Rocky Hill based Ames Department Stores Inc. are being cautiously optimistic.

Joseph R. Ettore, Ames’ president and chief executive officer, said the discount department store chain has planned just a modest increase in back to school sales. We’re still in the kind of mood where people are watching what they’re buying,” he said.

But although the heaviest back to school selling is at the end of August and just after Labor Day, Ames has already started to see apparel sales pick up. Ettore said those sales have mostly been jeans, but also new merchandise.

Everything that’s new seems to sell when it hits the floor,” Ettore said.

Backpacks have also been big sellers, as have binders, notebooks and themebooks. Especially popular are licensed theme products, such as those decorated with NASCAR race cars and Goose Bumps characters.

The wear and the where

A national survey of 1,000 consumers by American Express identified these trends among back to school shoppers.

On Tuesday, chief executive Stefan Larsson a new hire who joined the retailer after turning Old Navy into a clothing powerhouse unveiled to investors his sweeping plan for fixing the business. Larsson’s strategy calls for shakeups in virtually every corner of the nearly 50 year old company: There are plans to shutter 50 underperforming stores, or about 10 percent of the fleet. The business will be restructured to save up to $220 million in annualized costs, and about 1,000 jobs will be eliminated.

Larsson took the chief executive job late last year from the brand’s namesake, Ralph Lauren, the designer who continues to work at the company as its creative leader and chairman. Larsson came from Gap,

striped polo assault arrests

polo sneaker assault arrests

JACKSON, Miss. At first, it was a rap star on a spring break shopping jaunt on a Mississippi Sunday afternoon. Then, cellphone video shows a security guard pepper spraying rapper Boosie Badazz and his entourage after he told them to leave the Polo Ralph Lauren section of a department store. Finally, police say it was five people attacking the security guard and a Biloxi police officer outside the department store moments later.

Biloxi Police Lt. Christopher De Back said three men face felony assault charges, while two juveniles were also arrested after the mall melee, sparked by what officers said was a disorderly crowd following the rapper.

Formerly known as Lil Boosie, he had performed in Biloxi Saturday night. The Mississippi Gulf Coast was crowded with what police said were as many as 60,000 tourists attending Black Beach Weekend, an annual magnet for young African Americans from throughout the South. Edgewater Mall, where the incident took place, is a focus for crowds.

De Back said the guard pepper sprayed at least one person as he sought to eject a crowd from a Dillard department store. De Back said he didn know if the Louisiana rapper, born Torence Hatch, was sprayed,

but cellphone videos posted by local media show Boosie within a few feet of the officer when he sprays the chemical agent.

After the crowd exited the store, De Back said people appeared to be with Lil Boosie attacked the security guard and a Biloxi police officer who waded in, knocking both to the ground and kicking and punching them.

Boosie was present during the assault, but didn participate, De Back said.

Police said the assailants left in a van and were arrested a short time later about 4 miles away in Biloxi.

Charged with felony assault are 19 year old Ivy Givens of Baton Rouge, Louisiana; 32 year old Sedale Coleman of Tucker, Georgia; and 26 year old Patrick Tolbert of Mobile, Alabama. Givens and Coleman were released from the Harrison County jail Monday after posting $50,000 bail. Tolbert remains jailed unless he posts bail.

Police also arrested the van driver, 33 year old Ollie Harper of Atlanta, on charges of possessing a stolen gun. Harper also remains jailed pending $50,000 bail.

It unclear if any of the men have attorneys to speak for them.

De Back said police also arrested two 17 year old juveniles from Baton Rouge. While the three men and one juvenile are charged with assaulting both the guard and the officer,

one juvenile is charged with only assaulting the officer.

Dillard and the mall didn respond to requests for comment from local media. Management for Boosie did not respond to requests for comment from The Associated Press.
