Big-and-tall men: A commercial fit for you (Video)

WASHINGTON – Big-and-tall men know that being “larger than average” doesn’t mean being built like a football player, but the commercials they’ve seen for clothing in their size may tell a different story.

Now, one clothing company is changing up the stereotype and offering some solace for men they call “end of the rack” shoppers.

Destination XL is a clothing retailer for larger men. Their new commercial features “chubby” men searching for clothing in a barren no-man’s land — a play on how difficult it is to find clothing that fits.

The New York Times reports that nearly 75 percent of American men older than 19 are overweight.

Watch the commercial below.
