Basketball and celebrity superstar Shaquille O’Neal’s new menswear collection is headed to 100 Macy’s stores and on macys.com. And, yes, sizes will range from regular to big and tall (up to 60 XL).
Consisting of suit separates and sport coats, the collection should be in stores now or in a few days. It’s already on the website.
Patterns include traditional solids, stripes and plaids, as well as more modern and unexpected sharkskin in shades of black, navy, tan and gray. Suit separates anchor the line. Prices retail from $150 for pants to $400 for a jacket. O’Neal partnered with Peerless Clothing to develop the collection.
“My interest in developing a menswear collection was based on the lack of fashion choices for big and tall customers and the higher prices for larger size suits,” O’Neal said. “I also was frustrated that I had to go to a big and 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.”
O’Neal will wear the new collection on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” and on future television appearances.
