There are only a few stores that sell big tall apparel and generally they tend to be towards the expensive side since production and manufacturing these custom products require additional cost and raw material and thus higher prices than clothes in regular sizes.
60 - 70 years ago, it was very rare to find readymade clothes that catered to the needs and requirements of the larger built people. But slowly people and major companies began to see the large market unattended and used that gap to their advantage.
The sports companies like Adidas and Puma were the very first ones to accommodate by making big and tall apparel since most of the people in the sporting industry could not wear regular sized clothes. Following the lead of these sports apparel companies many other companies began popping up and produced big tall clothes. Later a whole category of big tall apparel began appearing in the stores.
The sports apparel manufacturing companies were the first to make big tall apparel hence the first place one should look to purchase clothing could be in these stores like Adidas, Puma and Reebok.
