If there's one thing that Shaquille O'Neal has mastered, it's being big and tall. So it only makes sense that the 7' 11'' NBA legend team with Peerless Clothing for a menswear line strictly for the large-and-in-charge fellas.
The Shaquille O’Neal Collection will be sold exclusively at 100 Macy's stores nationwide and online at macys.comn beginning in mid-February. Starting at $150, pieces will include suit separates and sport coats that will range in sizes from regular to Big & Tall.
"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 in a statement. "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."
"I originally wanted to develop a more fashion-forward menswear collection at an affordable price. 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."
The collection will be promoted online, in-store, through newspaper ads and by O'Neal himself. He will wear the new threads on TNT's "Inside the NBA" and on future television appearances.
