We refer to our fiscal years ended February 2, 2019, February 3, 2018 and January 28, 2017 as "fiscal 2018", "fiscal 2017" and "fiscal 2016," respectively.

The big & tall men's apparel market includes pants with a waist size of 42" and greater, as well as tops sized 1XL and greater. Growth in this segment has historically been driven by rapidly changing market demographics. We believe that we can increase our market share by catering to the broader target market, attracting customers from various income, age and lifestyle segments and offering the widest selection of sizes and styles that fit well. An opportunity also exists for market share growth from the lower-size range of our market, that is, men with a 38" to 46" waist size, which we define as our "end-of-rack" customers. These sizes are usually at the high end of the size range for most men's apparel retailers and, as a result, the selection is usually limited at such retailers.
Our Company was incorporated in the State of Delaware in 1976 under the name Designs, Inc. Until fiscal 1995, we operated exclusively in Levi Strauss & Co. branded apparel mall and outlet stores. In May 2002, we acquired the Casual Male business from Casual Male Corp. at a bankruptcy court-ordered auction. At the time of the acquisition, Casual Male was the largest specialty retailer of men's clothing in the big & tall market in the United States. As a result of the acquisition, on August 8, 2002, we changed our name to "Casual Male Retail Group, Inc."
