Destination XL, is an apparel superstore catering to the big and tall man. This new lifestyle offering caters to the many fashionable needs of today's big & tall man featuring brands like Calvin Klein, Tommy Bahama, Ralph Lauren and more.

DXL is a unique, all-inclusive destination offering over 2,000 styles under one roof from CMRG's four existing apparel businesses, Casual Male XL, Rochester Big & Tall, Shoes XL and B&T Direct. The comprehensive selection of products is intended to appeal to the various lifestyles and socioeconomic groups across the big and tall market. Currently with four other locations in Schaumburg, IL; Houston, TX; Las Vegas, NV and Memphis, TN, DXL offers a collection of good, better and best products merchandised by lifestyle. According to the American Consumer Satisfaction Index from CFI, consumers have an overall satisfaction index score of 90 of current DXL locations, and a score of 91 when asked if they would return for future purchases.

Currently underserved by Casual Male's traditional store model, DXL focuses on servicing the "end-of-the-rack" department store shopper or the smaller size area of the big and tall market. DXL was created following a six-month consumer study conducted by L.E.K. Consulting that found that big and tall men are looking for more options in a "one-stop-shop" environment and are willing to travel longer distances for a place that meets their specific apparel needs.
