Speaking as a "big & tall" man myself, it's a pleasure to shop at Rochester. They have an excellent assortment of clothes that make big galoots look shockingly good and non-schlumpy. The staff is efficient, knowledgable, and designed to get the customer in and out of there quickly, as big & tall guys tend *not* to be people who think that clothes shopping is all that fun or pleasurable. To be honest, the clientele is made up of guys for which shopping for clothes had often been a nightmare... so it's quite liberating to know the sales staff is going to easily find clothes for you that ACTUALLY FIT and ACTUALLY LOOK GOOD. That said, the clothes are not exactly inexpensive, so you may find yourself spending a lot of money at the store - lots more than you may have planned. So be prepared; other less expensive big & tall stores may be fine, if you're looking for clothes that don't have to be all that noteworthy. But if you're big and tall and you want to look as suave, professional and good looking as you possibly can, go to Rochester. It's worth it.
