                            FISCAL 2004 RESULTS

CANTON, MA  (May 22, 2003)  -- Casual Male Retail Group, Inc. (NASDAQ/NMS:
"CMRG"), retail brand operator of Casual Male Big & Tall, Levi's(r)/Dockers(r)
Outlet by Designs and EcKo Unltd.(r) outlet stores, today announced its
Operating results for the first quarter of fiscal 2004 which ended May 3, 2003.
These results include the effect, since May 14, 2002, of the Company's
acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Casual Male Corporation and
certain of its subsidiaries.

On a consolidated basis, for the first quarter of fiscal 2004, the Company
reported a net loss of approximately $2.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share
($.05 per diluted share after giving effect to normalized tax rate), as compared
to a net loss of $1.8 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the first quarter
of fiscal 2003.  Total sales from continuing operations for the first quarter of
fiscal 2004 were $99.7 million as compared to $32.3 million for the
corresponding period of the prior year.  The Casual Male multi-channel business,
which includes its stores, catalog and e-commerce operations, contributed $72.8
million, or approximately 73%, of the Company's total sales for the first
quarter of fiscal 2004, while the former Design's outlet businesses contributed
the balance of 27% of the total sales.  Comparable sales for the Casual Male
business decreased 5%, while total sales decreased 7.1%, on a pro-forma basis.

The Company's Casual Male business reported operating income for the first
quarter of fiscal 2004 of approximately $2.4 million.  On a pro forma basis, as
if the Company owned Casual Male for the first quarter of the prior year, the
Casual Male business had an operating loss for the first quarter of the prior
year of approximately $0.4 million. The Company's Other Branded Apparel
business, which includes its Levi's(r)/Dockers(r) outlet stores and its growing
EcKo Unltd.(r) outlet stores, reported an operating loss for the first quarter
of fiscal 2004 of $2.2 million as compared to $2.1 million for the first quarter
of fiscal 2003.  The Company's strategic plan to exit its Levi's(r)/Dockers(r)
business is still progressing as planned and as leases expire or lease
negotiations with landlords are reached, the Company will continue to close its
Levi's(r)/Dockers(r) outlet stores.

The table below reflects actual results for the Company for the first quarter of
fiscal 2004 and is compared to pro forma results for the first quarter of fiscal
2003 assuming that the Company's Casual Male acquisition had occurred on
February 3, 2002.  The Company has included in the table the historical
operating results of the Casual Male business prior to the Company's
acquisition.  These results have been prepared on a consistent basis with the
pro forma information presented in the Company's recent Form 10-K and Form 10-Q
filings.  These prior year pro forma results do not include any adjustments for
the expected $20 to $25 million of cost savings and synergies expected to be
fully realized in future periods.  The operating results of the Company's Other
Branded Apparel business, which includes its EcKo Unltd.(r) outlet stores,
primarily reflects the operating loss associated with the Levi's(r)/Dockers(r)
outlet stores which the Company is in the process of exiting:

David A. Levin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Casual Male Retail
Group, Inc., commented on the Company's first quarter performance, "Our belief a
year ago when we acquired the Casual Male business was that it had a strong and
stable sales base and its biggest problem was a bloated corporate overhead and
an infrastructure in disrepair.  Although sales have been negatively impacted by
poor weather in the Northeast and the generally poor retail environment, the
decline in Casual Male sales of 5% for the past two quarters is also as a result
of merchandising issues.  As I recently discussed during our web cast on May 8,
a replay of which is available on our website, we have not only commenced 8 key
initiatives to address Casual Male's merchandising deficiencies but also have
made management changes in the merchandise department.  The initiatives to
address these deficiencies should begin to impact sales trends in the second
half of the year."

Dennis R. Hernreich, Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer added,
"Although Casual Male's sales performance was below expectations, its strong
gross margin rate and the significant cost reductions have resulted in a
substantial improvement in operating profitability in the Casual Male business.
During our first year operating the Casual Male stores, we have been able to
reduced costs by $20 million on an annualized basis.  The next twelve months we
will complete our system enhancements and expect to reach  $25 million in
annualized cost savings.  These $20 million in cost savings will continue to be
evident in Casual Male's operating results throughout the year."

CMRG, the largest retailer of big and tall men's apparel, operates 474 Casual
Male Big & Tall stores, Casual Male e-commerce site, Casual Male catalog
business, 82 Levi's(r)/Dockers(r) Outlet by Designs stores, and 11 EcKo Unltd(r)
outlet stores located throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. The Company
is headquartered in Canton, Massachusetts and its common stock is listed on the
Nasdaq National Market under the symbol "CMRG".

The discussion of forward-looking information requires management of the Company
to make certain estimates and assumptions regarding the Company's strategic
direction and the effect of such plans on the Company's financial results.  The
Company's actual results and the implementation of its plans and operations may
differ materially from forward-looking statements made by the Company.  The
Company encourages readers of forward-looking information concerning the Company
to refer to its prior filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission that
set forth certain risks and uncertainties that may have an impact on future
results and direction of the Company.  The Company does not report on its
progress during a quarter until after the quarter has been completed and its
results have been appropriately disclosed.
