    Default Big Tall Newbie Needs Quality Recliner Advice

    I apologize in advance if this question has been asked 3,000 times but I am looking for advice and recommendations for the top 3 or 5 Hancock & Moore recliner models best suited for a large male. Specifically, Iím an athletic build, 315lbs, 6í3 tall. Clothes are hard enough to shop for. Looking for your advice but I think I need/prefer a 36 2.5 spring foam/down seat cushion or whatever is most appropriate for me.

    My priorities are:
    1. Quality
    2. Comfort
    3. Design

    I think there are only going to be three.

    Sundance
    Royal
    Weymuth

    Most the others I believe will be too small for you.

    I have the sundance recliner. Is great for the tall folks. Most comfortable recliner that I came across.

    Another option, if space permits, instead of a recliner is to get the Austin High Back Tilt Chair with Ottoman. I'm 6'4" and found that more comfortable than a recliner and you get the benefit of the 8 way hand tied deck.

    Thanks for the responses. I will be looking into trying to find one to see in person and sit in. I wonder if it is possible to get either a recliner or push back that would fit but has the look of the “tides” sofa/chair?

    The H&M "tides" series is heavily wood-framed, you really aren't going to find that much wood in a motion product, the mechanisms won't allow for frames like that.
