“Shaq is one of the biggest stars in sports with a huge fan base and following. A favorite celebrity and personality that is larger than life. Fans everywhere love Shaq for his athletic accomplishments, and his successful foray into music, movies, television shows and business. They love his style, passion and charisma,” said Ronny Wurtzburger, president of Peerless Clothing. “When it comes to fashion, Shaq is a trendsetter not only for big and tall and regular size men, but he also has strong consumer appeal among African- and Hispanic-Americans, moms who relate to Shaq’s dedication to providing quality products at affordable prices, and kids who see him as their ultimate role model.”

“My interest in developing a menswear collection was based on my frustration with the lack of fashion for big and tall customers and the higher prices for larger size suits,” O’Neal said. “I 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 collection will be marketed online and in store as well as through newspapers and personal appearances. O’Neal will also wear the new collection on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” and on future television appearances.  “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,” said Richard Arnstein, a Macy’s vice president. “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.”

  1. I for one am thrilled with this news. My son is a physically fit, 6’5″ 30 year old, who cannot shop in virtually any store we have ever frequented. It just so happens that last week, I emailed the corporate offices of major department stores complaining about this very issue. The answer I’m given is that they offer a small selection of online options. Why shouldn’t everyone have the opportunity to shop in a store? And please Mr. O’Neal, offer some casual options as well….sweaters, outerwear, etc, for those who are a large/tall, not just for 3x or 4x! Thank you.
