International Rugby Star New Face of Bigboys

International rugby league player Mitch Clark is the new face of, the UK’s leading mens plus size online fashion retailer.

The 30-year-old New Zealander is the son of rugby league royalty Trevor Clark and currently plays as a prop for Newcastle Thunder in the Rugby Football League.

Born in Pontefract, West Yorkshire, wearing fashionable clothes is important to Mitch and he is a strong advocate of on trend clothes being available for plus size men.

“I am really happy to be part of the Bigboys team. There is a definite market for clothes for plus size men and they should be able to get them. Bigboys has got an amazing range of brands for plus size men to choose from, such as Jack & Jones, Lyle & Scott and Ben Sherman which are really great brands.

“There’s no need for plus size men to struggle when looking for fashionable gear to wear. It’s all about being comfortable in your own skin,” said Mitch, who is based in Wakefield.

Despite following a strict fitness regime, Mitch is still conscious about what he eats even off season and normally follows a high protein diet which he advocates helps him lose weight.

He explained: “I do have to watch what I eat all the time and if I didn’t, I would have a problem. However, although I am one of these people who looks at a burger and puts weight on, I know how to get it off.

“However, I understand for a lot of men it’s not that simple and there are other issues causing them to gain weight. It’s just good to know that there is somewhere as fantastic as Bigboys where they can buy fashionable clothes and as I said earlier, feel comfortable in their own skin.”
