Attn:  J. Carlo Cannell

Mr. Cannell:

This letter agreement (this “Agreement”) constitutes the agreement between Destination XL Group, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and J. Carlo Cannell and Cannell Capital LLC, a Wyoming limited liability company (J. Carlo Cannell, Cannell Capital LLC and their Affiliates, together the “Investors”), with respect to the matters set forth below. Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined have the meanings ascribed to them in paragraph 10 below.



New Director.

(a)As soon as practicable following the date of this Agreement, but no later than June 25, 2018 (such date, the “Appointment Date”), the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) shall appoint Lionel F. Conacher (the “New Director”) to serve on the Board. The Nominating and Governance Committee of the Board and the Board will (i) limit the number of director nominees of the Company in connection with the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (including any postponement or adjournment thereof, the “2018 Annual Meeting”) to nine nominees and (ii) also nominate the New Director for election as one of the director nominees of the Company in connection with the 2018 Annual Meeting.

(b)The Investors hereby irrevocably withdraw the nomination of Lionel F. Conacher, John Flood, Gus Halas and Richard Van Doren, Jr. notified by or on behalf of it to the Company on May 4, 2018 in connection with the 2018 Annual Meeting and any related materials or notices submitted to the Company in connection therewith or related thereto, and agree not to nominate any new nominee for election at the 2018 Annual Meeting in substitution for Lionel F. Conacher, John Flood, Gus Halas and Richard Van Doren, Jr.

2. New Director Agreements, Arrangements and Understandings. The Investors (a) represent that the New Director is Independent and satisfies the Board membership criteria set forth in the Company Policies and (b) agree that they have not and will not (i) pay any compensation to the New Director regarding such Person’s nomination for election to, or service on, the Board or any committee thereof or (ii) have any agreement, arrangement or



understanding, written or oral, with the New Director regarding such Person’s service on the Board or any committee thereof. The Company agrees that the Board will determine the New Director’s membership of any Board committees in accordance with its usual practices.

3. New Director Information. As a condition to the New Director’s appointment to the Board and any subsequent nomination for election as a director at any future Company Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the New Director candidate will provide any information the Company reasonably requires, including information required to be disclosed in a proxy statement or other filing under applicable law, stock exchange rules or listing standards, information in connection with assessing eligibility, independence and other criteria applicable to directors or satisfying compliance and legal obligations, and will consent to appropriate background checks, to the extent, in each case, consistent with the information and background checks required by the Company in accordance with current practice with respect to all other members of the Board since January 28, 2016. If, following the completion of the Company’s initial background review process, the Board learns that the New Director has committed, been indicted or charged with, or made a plea of nolo contendre to a felony or a misdemeanor involving moral turpitude, deceit, dishonesty or fraud, or learns other information that would in good faith render such New Director ineligible for Board membership or constitute grounds for a removal of such New Director from the Board for cause, then the Board may request that the New Director submit his resignation.

4. Voting of Investors’ Shares. In connection with the 2018 Annual Meeting (and any adjournments or postponements thereof), so long as the New Director has been appointed to the Board and nominated by the Company for the 2018 Annual Meeting in accordance with paragraph 1 above, the Investors will cause to be present for quorum purposes and vote or cause to be voted all Company common stock beneficially owned by them and which they have the right to vote on the record date for the 2018 Annual Meeting in favor of (a) the election of each of the Board’s nominees and (b) the appointment of the Board’s recommended independent auditor for fiscal year 2018.  The Investors agree that they will not, directly or indirectly, sell, offer or agree to sell the voting rights for, or enter into a voting trust or other arrangement with respect to, any shares of Company common stock owned by them unless the counterparty in such transaction also agrees to the voting obligations set forth in this paragraph 4.

5. Company Policies. The parties hereto acknowledge that the New Director, upon appointment to the Board, will serve as a member of the Board and will be governed by the same protections and obligations as a member of the Board (including as set forth in the Company Policies), and shall have the same rights and benefits, including with respect to insurance, indemnification, compensation and fees, as are applicable to all independent directors of the Company. The Company represents and warrants that all Company Policies currently in effect are publicly available on the Company’s website or described in its proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on June 30, 2017 or have otherwise been provided to the Investors, and such Company Policies will not be amended prior to the appointment of the New Director other than as may be required to implement this Agreement or as required by law, regulation or the rules of any applicable national securities exchange.

6. Standstill. From the date of this Agreement until the Expiration Date (such period, the “Restricted Period”), the Investors will not, and will cause their respective principals,



directors, general partners, officers, employees, and agents and representatives acting on their behalf (collectively, the “Restricted Persons”) not to, directly or indirectly, absent prior express written invitation or authorization by the Company or the Board:

(a)engage in any “solicitation” (as such term is defined under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) of proxies or consents with respect to the election or removal of directors or any other matter or proposal or become a “participant” (as such term is defined in Instruction 3 to Item 4 of Schedule 14A promulgated under the Exchange Act) in any such solicitation of proxies or consents;

(b)knowingly encourage, advise or influence any other Person or knowingly assist any Person in so encouraging, advising or influencing any Person with respect to the giving or withholding of any proxy, consent or other authority to vote or in conducting any type of referendum, binding or non-binding, (other than such encouragement, advice or influence that is consistent with Company management’s recommendation in connection with such matter);

(c)form, join or act in concert with any partnership, limited partnership, syndicate or other group, including a “group” as defined pursuant to Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act with respect to any Voting Securities, other than solely with another Investor with respect to Voting Securities now or hereafter owned by them;

(d)(i) seek, alone or in concert with others, election or appointment to, or representation on, the Board or nominate or propose the nomination of, or recommend the nomination of, any candidate to the Board, except as set forth herein, (ii) seek, alone or in concert with others, the removal of any member of the Board or (iii) conduct a referendum of stockholders;

(g)institute, solicit, assist or join any litigation, arbitration or other proceeding against or involving the Company or any of its current or former directors or officers (including derivative actions) in order to effect or take any of the actions expressly prohibited by this paragraph 6; provided, however, that for the avoidance of doubt the foregoing shall not prevent any Restricted Person from (i) bringing litigation to enforce the provisions of this Agreement, (ii) making counterclaims with respect to any



proceeding initiated by, or on behalf of, the Company against a Restricted Person, (iii) bringing bona fide commercial disputes that do not relate to the subject matter of this Agreement, or (iv) exercising statutory appraisal rights; provided, further, that the foregoing shall also not prevent the Restricted Persons from responding to or complying with a validly issued legal process;

Each of the parties, after consulting or having had the opportunity to consult with counsel, knowingly, voluntarily and intentionally waives any right that such party may have to a trial by jury in any litigation based upon or arising out of this Agreement or any related instrument or agreement, or any of the transactions contemplated thereby, or any course of conduct, dealing, statements (whether oral or written), or actions of any of them.
