Basketball star Shaquille O'Neal and Peerless Clothing have partnered to create a new fashion menswear collection that will launch exclusively at Macy's.
Available this month, the Shaquille O'Neal Collection will offer suit separates and sport coats in sizes ranging from regular to big and tall.
"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," says O'Neal. "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."
The line will be available at 100 Macy's stores across the U.S. and on the Macy’s website.
"Shaquille O'Neal is one of the most iconic athletes of our time, and we are thrilled that he chose Macy's to launch this extension of his superstar talent into the world of tailored clothing," says Richard Arnstein, executive vice president and general merchandising manager of men’s, Macy's. "With his high-profile lifestyle, Mr. O'Neal understands the power of being well dressed, and this new collection of suit separates will appeal to men of any size who truly appreciate style and quality."
