Shaquille O’Neal XLG X JCPenney
Because I blog about big and tall fashion, I came across brands and new brands that cater to men of size. Some brands aren’t authentic and want to seize an opportunity to increase their revenue. So, I am a bit skeptical towards new brands. Then I saw that the clothes were suits and blazers. Then, I thought to myself Shaquille Oneal is the epitome of big and tall, why is he making suits?
On August 21, 2018, JCPenney hosted an event to launch Shaq’s clothing line called Shaquille O’Neal XLG. (I had the opportunity to meet Shaq. I thought that I was a big man, but Shaq is a different species! The perfect candidate to have a big and tall line.) The event was awesome. There were a lot of sports-themed games, there were custom XLG drinks that were delicious too. I indulged in the drinks, I had some of the appetizers and the chicken and waffles were my favorite. After speaking to a few familiar faces, decided to examine the clothes.
What Were The Clothes Like?
To be honest I was pleased with what I saw. I loved the feel of the fabric too! Not only were there some impressive designs, I love the stretch element that was added to the suit. Big men in suits have been extremely common and safe. But, we hate baggy suits, so if we are going to wear one it has to stand out. It eliminates the baggy look that most suits for “big and tall” men possess. That element alone excites me. I am looking forward to September 13 when the line becomes available for purchase online and in stores.
There are many clothing lines that seem to take advantage of big and tall men. Some stores and brands that cater to men of size are very expensive. It discourages the consumer to make purchases because of the high price point. But, Shaq’s brand is affordable! The price points are almost unreal. Shaq and JCPenney made the playing field even, you can look great at an affordable price.
Overall, I am excited that a prominent figure of the big and tall community mage quality affordable clothes for men of size. When I look at the clothes I can see passion and sincerity. Mucg love to Shaq and JCPenney! I look forward to seeing the brand grow because, from the looks of things, the brand is definitely here to stay. If you liked what you read, leave a comment.
