This vintage photograph from 1955 shows a non-politically-correct "Sig Klein's Fat Men's Shop" in the East Village. Sometime since then, all of these types of shops have been renamed to a more polite* "Big & Tall".* This shop opened in the late-1880s and lasted for nearly 100 years near the corner of 10th Street and 3rd Avenue. Check out this Vanishing New York article to learn more about the shop.
