Shaquille O’Neal is back with a new menswear line with Macy’s.
The collection –“The Shaquille O’Neal collection” – are suits with separate jackets and sports jackets.
The collection has a focus on big to tall — fitting men in his body type.
“My interest in developing a menswear collection was based on the lack of fashion choices for Big & Tall customers and the higher prices for larger size suits,” O’Neal said about the collection.
This is definitely a market O’Neal can popularize on and he’ll be the perfect spokesman for big and tall brothers out there. His own frustration will resonate with many buyers.
“I also was frustrated that I had to go to a Big & Tall store rather than shop with my friends at the local department or specialty store,” he said. “I originally wanted to develop a more fashion-forward menswear collection at an affordable price.”
Although he’s specializing in big and tall clothes for men, his line is still made in regular sizes as well.
“Once Peerless and I developed the collection, the reaction from Macy’s was so positive that we decided to make the collection in all sizes,” he said.
The prices range from $400 for a jacket to $150 for pants. There are many options from the line — plaids, stripes and solids. And colors, and shades include navy, black, grey and tan. The collection is in Macy’s stores now and online as well.
