Fat Lad At The Back (alias FLAB) is based in Yorkshire and produces cycle clothing in larger sizes and with a bit more room in it, designed for the classic MAMIL shape. It was started in 2013, when its founder Richard Bye realised that there was a market for cycling clothing designed for men who were not racing snakes. The company started off with a range of kit designed to fit 44 inch chests and 38 inch waists and made in Italy. Over time, the company’s range has grown to include women’s kit and even larger men’s kit too, up to 58 inch chest size.
