Our Story 

The Big Choice big and tall is a 2nd generation, family owned clothing store offering well-made and fashionable clothing to big and tall men in a laid-back and welcoming environment. In 1979 Len Schinkoeth opened his first clothing store and after clientele made numerous joking questions of “where is the real men’s clothing?” from his larger customers, he opened the first Big Choice in 1984. PJ Schinkoeth, his son, began working alongside his father in the store at the age of 15, eventually taking over the family business in 2019, with his father’s retirement. Both of the owners agree that the word “choice” is just as important as the word “big” in the store’s name, offering not only a large selection of clothing for the big and tall man, but also a large collection of both custom and semi-custom clothing for people of all sizes. Unlike the practices of the average big-box stores, the employees of Big Choice are all trained not only to take the edge off of shopping with the kind and welcoming atmosphere of the store, they’re also trained to help shoppers to put together entire wardrobes, should they wish. Long-time customers of the Big Choice know and trust the level of service they receive whenever they come in to the store. The Big Choice carries a large variety of both casual and dress clothing, as well as offering rental for both suits and tuxedos.
