I went to one of these sales for ladies once. I am about 178cm tall. I can generally find tops and coats but pants and shoes are impossible to find. Unfortunately they did not really have any pants to fit me at this sale either. I also have trouble with ladies gloves, so I buy my gloves in the men's section :-)

Tokyo: Isetan Department Store in Shinjuku
December 25 - December 30 Men's Large Size and Super Men's Sale in Promotional Hall on 6th Floor. To get more information on sizes available and brands you might try calling 03-3225-2514 (English OK).
If you have the I-Club member card you get 2 hours free parking in the Isetan parking facility. Other people can also get the parking fee waived WITH receipts totaling Y5000, etc. I'm a train person so I don't pay much attention to those details. I believe a nice lunch counts.
The I Club Foreign Customer Service Desk is on the 6th floor of the Main Building. (It has been moved since the post above was written.)
Also, remember that all the big department stores can have your purchases sent to your home so you don't have to carry them (for a fee of course).
