Rochester Big & Tall Refuses To Stock Non-Plus Sized Clothing [Daily News Brief]

New York, NY – Wednesday
By Joshua Mauldin

Amidst protests from anti-normal-shaming groups, Rochester Big & Tall CEO Marco Jorello remains steadfast in both his company’s image and business model.

imageDuring an interview with The Portly Register, Jorello admitted that his company caters exclusively to men with robust waistlines and/or elongated legs.

“People who wear size 32 around or a 30 inseam don’t belong in our clothes, they can’t belong. We deal with men who probably weren’t the cool kids in school and had a little trouble with the ladies. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely.”

Critics accuse Jorello of promoting anti-normal biases. image“My husband wears a 34 waist with a 28 inseam,” said Sandra Flowers, President of Thin People For The Ethical Treatment Of Thin People.

“There is literally nothing at Rochester he can wear. He’s forced to shop at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Brooks Brothers, Macy’s, Tommy Hillfiger, Abercrombie & Fitch, The Gap, Neiman Marcus, Dillard’s, Barney’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and even Sears. How is that fair?”
