Oh, hi.

Welcome to extraextrastyle, a place for big & tall guys like me to celebrate their love for fashion - and themselves.

 Shaquille O'Neal's Line At JCPenney is a Slam Dunk

Shaquille O'Neal's Line At JCPenney is a Slam Dunk

I've done some thinking, and I've realized something: Shaquille O'Neal and I are pretty much the same person. Sure, only one of us is considered one of the best NBA players in history (but I was picked second-to-last for the basketball team in high school gym class, so there's that). And though I am tall, I am not over 7 feet tall (!!). But how else do I explain the fact that this blazer from his Shaquille O'Neal XLG collection at JCPenney was, like, made for me?


From the fit (so comfortable with stretch!) to the fabric (soft, with just the right drape) to the fab plaid pattern, I'm in love. I'll wear it this fall with ripped jeans when I want a high-low mix, and I'll wear it with tailored grey trousers when I want a high-high mix (and also when I want to ensure my mother doesn't launch into her patented anti-ripped jeans tirade).

Plus - the JCPenney Men's Best Dressed Event is here, with 50% off select suits and suit separates. The only "traveling" you should do is to JCPenney to check out what they have (and no, you don't want to know how long it took me to come up with that bad basketball joke).

What I’m wearing:

Sport Coat


Dress Shirt




Thank you to JCPenney for hooking me up with this great jacket and for sponsoring this post!
