1.New York City
Big and Tall stores, New York: In New York City, you can find several big and tall stores – both on Manhattan and outside the island. I have found 3 quick ones here: DXL, Target and Rothman. Three very different ones, where DXL is the most dedicated one to go to, if you want only Big and Tall clothes. Target is kind of a supermarket that also holds clothes for the big and tall, but not as a dedicated store. And Rothman looks more high-end where you would go for a nice dress shirt or jacket and maybe even have it altered and fitted to suit your body perfectly.
How to use the map: Use the map to zoom in on your area and search for Big and Tall stores near me to let Google list the most popular ones. If you have trouble finding big and tall stores near you via the embedded map here on the site, you can always go to Google Maps and give it a shot in there.

Big & Tall Stores near me: Los Angeles
Mid – Premium Pricing
Big and Tall stores, Los Angeles: Again, we have a few of the know ones like Destination XL with its different sub brands. But we also find a few big and tall stores with a strong physical store but no online presence. So you just have to visit stores like Gabriel’s Big and Tall and Mr. Big Men’s and AMA Fashion – instead of looking through their big and tall selections online.
How to use the map: Zoom in and out as you please, until you are near the area you live in. Look at the pins showing up on the map and click each one to learn more about the specific big and tall store. If you don’t like the embedded map here on Tallsome, you can go directly to Google Maps and type in Big and Tall stores near me, Los Angeles US or something like that. Or click the button below to go directly there.Big and Tall Stores near me - Los Angeles
Big & Tall Stores near me, Chicago
Mid – Premium Pricing
Big and Tall stores, Chicago: DXL is massively present in Chicago as the leading Big and Tall store in the area. But Martin’s Big and Tall, Century Fashions Big and Tall and Threads Big and Tall are also to be found in the city of Chicago. DXL is by far the largest and most professionally looking online store, but the other physical stores seem like they have a say on the Big and Tall scene as well. Don’t be mistaken by the somewhat outdated websites of the smaller big and tall stores; go visit the stores to try on some big and tall apparel found in your local area.
How to use the map: The Google Map embedding above is an interactive screenshot of my search for Big and Tall stores, Chicago USA. Zoom in and out to localize the store that interest you and write that address on your GPS or phone and jump in the car to go visit some big and tall stores near you. If you live outside the marked area, I have chosen, you can drag the map to the sides and up and down to see if there is a big and tall store closer to you than the ones on the map.Big and Tall Stores near me - Chicago
Big & Tall Stores near me, Houston
Mid – Premium Pricing
Big and Tall stores, Houston: Other than a few DXL stores, the Houston Big and Tall scene doesn’t look that rich and nuanced. If you are form Houston and have a few tips, then please drop a comment at the end of this post. When I do my research, I find 2 DXL stores and a Casual Male XL, which is also a DXL brand. If you like DXL and their Big and Tall selection, then you’re good to go. If not, then I recommend checking out this list of online tall men’s clothing stores an order online instead.
How to use the map: The map is pulled from Google Maps and can be used as a normal Google Maps map – zoom in and out, go up and down, use it to find your area and see if there is a big and tall store near you. In Houston, your best bet would be to go with the Destination XL lines or order your big and tall clothing online.Big and Tall Stores near me - Houston
Big & Tall Stores near me, Philadelphia
Mid – Premium Pricing
Big and Tall Stores,Philadelphia: The GAP stores have great brands for the big and tall and are present with a few physical stores in Philadelphia as well. Both Old Navy and Banana Republic are GAP brands and some of the best out there. I’ve been looking into Old Navy and I really recommend their selection of Big and Tall stuff. A few other players are also present, and you’ll find the links above to check out.
How to use the map: I searched for big and tall stores Philadelphia US, and the map above is the result of that. Use the navigation to find your area and look out for the pins pinpointing the area of the big and tall stores near your home. Big and tall stores near you should be easy to find with the map above – if not, then do your own Google Maps search and see what you get.Big and Tall Stores near me - Philadelphia
Big & Tall Stores near me, Phoenix
Mid – Premium Pricing
Big and Tall Stores, Phoenix: Phoenix seems like having a great big and tall scene; both the more mainstream DXL, a local store called Thaku’s Menswear and a very dandy looking Exclusively Big & Tall for finer apparels. Thaku has two locations, DXL have a few more, and the Exclusively Big & Tall has just one store. Being a tall fellow in Phoenix doesn’t seem that bad to me.
How to use the map: The interactive map is pulled from Google Maps and can be used the same way as you are used to in there. I’ve already searched for big and tall stores in Phoenix, so you can just locate your own area and see the selection of physical big and tall stores in your specific part of Phoenix.Big and Tall Stores near me - Phoenix
Big & Tall Stores near me, San Antonio
Mid – Premium Pricing
Big and Tall Stores, San Antonio: San Antonio definitely has a good selection of physical Big and Tall stores near you, if you close to or in San Antonio. The omnipresent DXL is of course here, but besides their great range of big and tall clothes, Penner’s and Josephs also looks very promising. If I was in the San Antonio area, I would check out all three and the couple more big and tall stores found in the area.
How to use the map: The map is embedded from Google Maps and represents a piece of San Antonio with pins in the locations of big and tall stores in the area. If you drag the map, you will see a new selection of the country, and you can use this feature to select an area close to you, to see what physical big and tall stores you might find in your local neighborhood.Big and Tall Stores near me - San Antonio
Big and Tall Stores, San Diego: DXL is here, Bulky Boy is a local Big and Tall store, and then we have a few others such as Nordstrom, Target and Men’s Wearhouse. Nordstrom is a personal favorite, but I know how it’s a bit pricier than e.g. Destination XL. Bulky Boy is a single shop with no other stores in other states, so if you want to support something local, go check out their selection of Big and Tall clothing.
How to use the map: The map is a cropped part of San Diego found by searching for big and tall stores, San Diego US. If you want to see another part of the state, you can drag around the map to find your local area. You can also zoom in and zoom out for a better view of the area, you want to see.Big and Tall Stores near me - San Diego
Big & Tall Stores near me, Dallas
Mid – Premium Pricing
Big and Tall Stores, Dallas: Dallas does not have the biggest variety in big and tall stores, but you do have some local options to choose from; Destination XL is in Dallas with a few different stores, Men’s Wearhouse is also here as in many other American cities – and then we have the very cool Big and Tall Direct, which is a more local option to go for. I recommend taking out a day to visit the different big and tall stores to see what they have to offer off the rags at every one of the mentioned stores.
How to use the map: Dallas has been reduced to small square of a Google Map selection, and if you can’t see your own area, then feel free to drag around the map to find the exact location of your home. Dallas does not have that many big and tall stores to choose from, so I would recommend jumping in the car and ride off to Dallas central, and then go shopping in the areas closer to inner city.Big and Tall Stores near me - Dallas
Big & Tall Stores near me, San Jose
Mid – Premium Pricing
Big and Tall Stores, San Jose: DXL is sitting heavily on the Big and Tall market here in San Jose. Rochester, Casual Male XL and DXL are all the same chain, but carry different lines of clothing. Therefore, it may still make sense to visit all three of their physical locations to try on a few things.
How to use the map: This Google Maps window is interactive and can be dragged around, zoomed in and out and used to find the area you live in. Although, here in San Jose there aren’t that many Big and Tall stores outside the selection I have chosen for you already. Then you will have to shop for big and , or drive all the way to another city.Big and Tall Stores near me - San Jose
Finding Big and Tall Stores near me
This list is just a jab at helping you find big and tall stores in your local area. I know it’s not extensive – as that would take a lot more than the 5 hours I put into making this. But now you kind of get the idea of using Google and Google Maps to locate the big and tall stores near you.
The search query ‘big and tall stores near me’ has close to 15.000 monthly searches, and so its seams like there is demand for some kind of tailored ‘big and tall search engine’, which would be really cool. Although, I am not a software engineer, so I’ll leave you with this list for now, and maybe do that other one in the future.
Even though I’m not big myself – as you can see on the picture below – I have searched for big and tall stores near me, as these stores often have a good idea of how to suit a man who’s only tall, and not big.

This particular blazer was from Tailor Store, and they did not succeed in tailoring it to me, as you can see in the picture. There is a risk involved with ordering big and tall clothes online, as you may not like the clothes when it comes, or it doesn’t fit you.
There are a few tips I can give you on online shopping, which should raise the odds of you getting something you like:
- Look for free shipping and returns If the Big and Tall store offers free shipping and also free returns, then you are pretty safe. Then the only cost to you, if the clothes isn’t right for you, the time you’ve spent on it. And that’s not the worst.
- Know your measurements It is really valuable to know your body’s measurements in order to know whether or not the particular store has something that fits you. Look through their size charts and see if your measurements align.
- Find a friend with the same bodytype A clothing buddy is some of the best advice I have ever reached. The friends I have that are the same size and height as me is very eager to share tips on where to buy tall clothing. And – you get the chance to maybe try on some of theirs or just see and feel it, before you purchase something similar.

Tall.. or Big and Tall?
It’s often confusing to have both Tall and Big & Tall stores trying to tell us that they specialize in your specific needs. Being 6’8″ and slim, I have often visited stores that just didn’t have anything that I could fit. This list is for the Big and Tall, to make things clear. I have made another list expecially for the tall and slim – although there is still a bit of overlapping, as some stores with tall men’s clothing also offer their tall clothes in larger sizes.

Stores with clothes such as dress shirts, jeans, shoes and much more for the big and tall are popping up all over the country and the world.
