, Rotherham United Kingdom (PressExposure) August 05, 2008 -- Big Fish Clothing, a leading retailer of apparel for the big and tall marketplace, announced today that it will be one of the very few retailers in the UK that offer Major League Baseball apparel in larger sizes. Merchandise is arriving now, and early reaction has been very strong.
Big and Tall shoppers in the UK can find the most popular teams represented, including their favorites, in various styles. Tee shirts, polo shirts and jackets are available in a large array of sizes.
"Team merchandise like this makes great casual wear," said Manawar Hussain, Manager of the Big Fish Clothing store. "I love the styles and the fabrications, and now our customers who love baseball have an opportunity to support their favorite teams."
All of the styles are available at the store, and also available on Big Fish Clothing's website.
Charles Katz, Vice President of sales for Fortune USA's Profile Division, shares Hussain's enthusiasm for bringing Major League Baseball merchandise to the UK. "Big Fish Clothing will be the place for Major League Baseball apparel in the UK, for the fashion conscious sports-minded guy," said Katz. "We look forward to working with them."
Early reaction to the merchandise has been strong, ostensibly because it has never been made available in the UK before. "We're delighted with the initial response" said Hussain. "We see this as a trend, and plan to continue to provide fashion to sports fans here in the UK."
Hussain also says he will provide National Football League merchandise.
