The Frank’s Story

In 1911, the area of New Brunswick, NJ was a bustling neighborhood of working class families and businesses. That year, a Russian immigrant, Frank Marowitz, arrived in town and decided to open a tailor shop and a second hand clothing store. At the time, the shop was known as F. Marowitz Tailoring (becoming Frank’s Big & Tall when Frank’s three sons opened their Big & Tall store years later).

In 1911, there were no stores that catered to the needs of the Big & Tall men and word of Frank’s tailoring skills quickly spread throughout the community. Larger men from throughout the area would arrive at Frank’s shop eager to get their bigger needs addressed.

The tailor shop continued through the 1940’s. After returning from WWII, Frank’s two sons, Hy & Alex, opened up Frank’s Army Supply along with their brother Marty. In 1961, continuing the tradition established by their father Frank, the brothers decided to focus on the clothing needs of the big and tall men and they opened the first Frank’s Big & Tall.

Today, Frank’s third generation continues to satisfy its clients with top level customer service and a broad selection of name brand quality clothing. The original store has since moved to Route 18 in East Brunswick with other locations in Morristown, Toms River and our 11,000 square foot anchor store in Ocean Township, NJ.

A very experienced and knowledgeable sales staff is key to that customer service and satisfaction. Our tailors take great pride in our heritage and ensure that our clients leave with the proper fit.

Among the great name brands offered at Frank’s Big & Tall include Tommy Bahama, Polo, Cutter & Buck, Docker’s Levi Jeans, Wrangler, Nautica, Claiborne, Callaway, Columbia, Palm Beach, Hart Schaffner & Marx, Jack Victor, Ralph Lauren Kenneth Cole, Rockport, Florsheim, Sebago, Cole-Haan, Allen Edmonds, New Balance, Jockey, Enro, Christopher Hart, Gold Toe, Christopher Hart, Copper Cove, and Creekwood to name a few.
