Plus-Size Men's Clothing Stores

The rapidly expanding market for plus-size men's clothing has not translated seamlessly into revenue growth for the Plus-Size Men's Clothing Stores industry over the five years to 2019. According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease, over the past three decades, the percentage of American men that are overweight or obese has steadily risen to over 70.0%, a factor which has expanded the industry's core market. However, the majority of purchases of plus-size clothing occurs outside of the industry through a variety of more popular channels, including e-commerce websites, department stores, mass merchandisers and wholesale clubs. Over the five years to 2024, industry revenue is forecast to return to slow growth, despite competition heating up from external industries, particularly online players that can offer attractive prices for industry apparel.

This industry includes brick-and-mortar retailers that specialize in plus-size men’s clothing, which is commonly referred to as big and tall clothing. This category includes apparel that is proportioned specifically for men with a waist size of over 40 inches or a height of six feet two inches tall.
