Cool Fall Looks for Big Guys

September 20, 2010 10:09:49 AM PDT
The man in your life might not want to give up his shorts and flip-flops just yet. But fall is almost here and it's time to put away the short-sleeves and shorts and warm up in some lightweight layers, says Kristen Pascucci, fashion director for Destination XL in Schaumburg. The new store was opened by the team that operates Casual Male XL and Rochester Big & Tall stores. So they know how to fit big and tall guys at price points to fit any budget, Kristen says.

To celebrate the store's grand opening, Destination XL www.destinationxl.com is holding a model search this Saturday from 12 to 3 pm. If you think your favorite guy should be a model, send him to the store at 1985 East Golf Road in Schaumburg.

Ideal candidates should be at least 5'10" with a waist size from 38-44" and be well groomed. All applicants should come dressed in casual clothing ready to have their picture taken by a professional photographer. Candidates will also meet with the judges for a brief interview in the store.

Winners will sign with the Stewart Talent Modeling Agency and receive a $250 Destination XL? gift card in addition to potentially appearing in upcoming DXL advertising campaigns.

Although no previous experience is required, if candidates have a professional portfolio, or personal photos, they are encouraged to bring it along to share with the judges.

There is no entry fee and each applicant will receive a complimentary bag filled with great gifts. A pre-printed entry form is available on www.destinationxl.com under Model Search. Or call 847.330-1917
