Big and Tall?

A friend of mine is 6'8". He's always complaining that he can't find clothes in his size. I told him he should go to a Big and Tall store. He said he's tried that but Big and Tall stores don't actually carry clothing for tall people.

Apparently the word "tall" is there just to make big people feel better – because no one wants to shop at "The Big Store."

It's kind of a brilliant move, actually. Maybe more businesses should throw in a feel good BS thing at the end of their name. Like Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Gym.

My friend is 6'3" and super lanky. He has the same problems finding good clothing stores for people with his body shape!

I'm 6'5" and buy most of my clothes from landsend.com. You can get them custom cut to any measurement for VERY reasonable prices. Tell him to check it out.

He may be shit out of luck if he wants cool jeans though.

Oh! When I worked in costumes we used two Big and Tall stores, one for 'tall' and another for 'big'. The Casual Male XL on 3rd Ave and 22nd St was the 'tall' store.

"Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Gym" LOL.

If I were your friend would invest in a shrinking machine. Test on a baseball first.
