Carlos Velazquez looks over a pair of slacks in the newly remodeled Destination Xl store at 4055 N. Oracle Road. The recent remodel more than tripled the size of the store, which changed its name from Casual Male XL and added brand names like Polo.


Men who wear sizes XL and up now have a new place to shop.

Destination XL has opened at 4055 N. Oracle Road, in the former Casual Male XL building, which has been expanded and remodeled to fit the new store.

The company operates under six brands, including Casual Male XL, which was its core brand.

According to Destination XL officials, they are in the process of transitioning from Casual Male XL to focus on expaning the Destination XL brand, which they say offers bigger stores, more brands, styles and in-store tailoring.

The store, described as between 8,500 and 9,000 square feet, carries more than 100 brands from private labels to designer brands in sizes starting at XL, along with tall sizes, plus waist sizes from 40" and up, as well as shoe sizes 10-16 in widths to 4E.

The new stores are designed with features to attract their male clientele, such as pool tables, televisions and couches.

One Casual Male XL store still remains in Tucson at 5700 E. Broadway, but is scheduled to close next month. The company's goal is to phase out all of the Casual Male XL stores in favor of Destination XL.
