            Casual Male Retail Group Reports Comparable Store
         Sales Increase of 1.6% for the Third Quarter of Fiscal 2004
                        and .4% for October 2004

CANTON, Mass., November 4, 2004 -- Casual Male Retail Group, Inc.
(NASDAQ/NMS: "CMRG" -), retail brand operator of Casual Male Big &
Tall, the exclusive retailer of George Foreman's clothing collection,
today announced its sales results for October 2004 and the third
quarter of fiscal 2004.

Casual Male reported that October sales results for the Casual Male Big
and Tall stores, catalog and e-commerce, for the four week period ended
October 30, 2004, increased slightly to $24.7 million from $24.5
million reported for the prior year's four week period ended November
1, 2003. Comparable store sales increased 0.4% for the month.  For the
third quarter of fiscal 2004, sales for Casual Male increased 1.6% to
$74.2 million from $73.0 million for the third quarter of the prior
year.  Casual Male comparable store sales increased 1.6% for the third
quarter of fiscal 2004 and 5.1% for the nine months of fiscal 2004.
Dennis Hernreich, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer
said, "The first two weeks of October, we were on a similar promotional
calendar to last year and our comps were trending toward mid single
digits.  With our inventory levels in an excellent position, we made a
decision to be less promotional during the final two weeks. The results
from a lesser promotional posture was that Casual Male's markdown rate
for October was substantially less than last year with higher gross
margins, although sales were lower than expected."

"The fourth quarter of fiscal 2004 will be the first quarter during
this year that we increase our direct marketing activity on a similar
promotional calendar while keeping the marketing budget flat with
last year levels.  At the same time, we anticipate that our trend of
improving gross margins will continue," said David Levin, Chief
Executive Officer and President.

Casual Male will discuss its third quarter earnings on November 18,
