Shops for Men's Clothing
Let’s face it: Unlike their spouses, girlfriends, sisters, mothers, aunts, nieces and daughters, most men hate to shop. Yet despite tough economic times, men are still spending to look good.
The growth is at the premium end, with apparel sales in high-end men’s specialty stores up 3% in the 12 months ending February 2008, according to market-research firm The NPD Group. Compare that to department store sales, which are down 4.6%, and factory outlets, down over 20% during the same period.
Specialty stores could be holding their own because they are exactly that–specialized to cater to a particular customer. In contrast to department stores or chains, specialty stores are usually independently owned and tend to offer enhanced, more personal customer service. They also have the flexibility to uniquely fine-tune their environment, decor and amenities to make the shopping experience a more enjoyable one–or maybe just a manlier one.

Tall men's clothing??2004-11-09 17:21:44 by emdoubleu
I have been trying to buy clothes for my boyfriend (xmas and bday) and am having no luck. the problem is that he is 6'5" and a skinny little bitch so nothing fits him. hes got really long arms so the sleeves are always too short in size S or M, and L is way too wide and baggy.
i tried the big and tall store but found out that means you can shop there only if you are big AND tall.
im looking specifically for dress type shirts and a jacket/coat. he prefers slim cut clothes and if i were forced to label his look, it would be indie/mod-ish. he pretty much shops at thrift stores now and wears shirts that dont fit, but i need to find him stuff he can wear to weddings and other more formal occasions
