The ‘Curb’s Essential Phone Review- The Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Influencer

In Lifestyle On The 'Curb

I have been an Android fanatic since the beginning. I was so excited about Google’s first phone called the G-1!  I loved the open source market and how Amazon shopping was once integrated into the Android Market. (It’s also bizarre that the port for charger and headset were the same. I hated it then. Now, it seems to be the standard for the phones.)

The Essential Phone

In the shortage of stock Android phones, a company rose and debuted the Essential PH-1. The company is a new company made by one of the first developers of the Android operating system. No logo, no bizarre designs, just a high-quality phone. I was excited! I didn’t understand the marketing plan, but I gave it a shot! I am an Android fanatic as stated, so I didn’t have much to lose.

The Essential Phone

What I dislike about the phone is that some of the “essentials” weren’t considered.
The camera is could be so much better. There are dual cameras, but the mark is missed. The camera is also lacking a lot of features in my opinion. (I will be using my iPhone for the camera.)

The screen is impressive, but there is a camera in the middle! It’s an eyesore. It throws off the dynamics of the phone. The phone also boasts the worlds first 360 cameras for a smartphone.

Essential Phone

I have an iPhone 7 and comparing the processing speed in recording the fingerprints. There was a significant difference! I was absolutely impressed. The RAM and memory for the phone are impressive! The phone runs smoothly and I am using 21 gigs already. As of yet, I haven’t received one crash report yet. I purposefully leave as many apps as I can running. And the phone’s hardware is able to run all of the apps with ease.

The phone’s speaker is absolutely impressive. It overpowered the iPhone 7 and the Samsung S8 .
The phone is very sturdy. I dropped the phone three times accidentally and there wasn’t a scratch on the phone. The phone is made with some titanium components. (I am a fairly tall man, so my fear with smartphones is dropping them, but not with the essential phone.) I love the design of the device. I love that the Essential phone charges quickly. It helps especially with blogging and always being on the go.

Team Essential can only go forward from here. A very strong first showing. I am very impressed. The phone reminds me of my Motorola Nexus. Now if I can only find a headset and a phone case because that’s an absolute chore! Great work, I am looking forward to more from the essential team in the future.

The Gentlemen’s Curb is a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. We highlight brands and lifestyle options for men of size. As a man of size, you could imagine it’s extremely difficult for us. If I find a store that carries my shoe size, it’s a celebration. There are certain clothing brands that I can not wear and I am sure that there are many that can relate to my experiences.

Cars.com offers to find a car absolutely easy. There are so many options and I can find a car that caters specifically towards me.  Because of my size, I am clearly interested in SUV’s. It would only make sense. I wouldn’t be able to fit comfortably in a lot of cars. Cars offers the price of the SUV, also the miles of the gas to the gallon. Cars also inform you the number of seats in the car.

Cars.com also rounds up all of the top SUV’s, the safety features, the warranties as well. The reviews that left on the site also pay a huge role for me. It gave an honest assessment and will help me consider when it’s time to purchase. Cars.com has stats to make purchasing a car easy for everyone.

Real Men Wear Pink

Cancer is defined as An abnormal growth of cells which tend to proliferate in an uncontrolled way and, in some cases, to metastasize (spread). Cancer is not one disease. It is a group of more than 100 different and distinctive diseases. Cancer can involve any tissue of the body and have many different forms in each body area. But to many of us, there are ways that we define cancer. Cancer has become synonymous with many negative feelings.
Attributes as pain, hurt, fear and in very few cases we can associate with triumph. For all of those that were blessed to beat cancer.

For years I refused to participate in any type of cancer research. I felt a void that could not be filled. I felt that I shouldn’t be asked to donate, don’t ask me to share any information. I felt as if it were pointless. Useless. The attempts to raise awareness and raise funds for cancer research were in vain. Why would I help others when my family needed the help it seemed as if we were alone??

Bibs…

My grandmother Isolyn Grant Brown was the sweetest woman I would ever know. She emigrated from the island of Jamaica with the rest of her family.  This woman set a standard for excellence. All of her positive attributes would make this post longer than needed.  Mrs. Brown made sure that her looks were always in order. ‘Bibs’ as she was commonly Know as, dressed to kill! Her wardrobe was precise! She had jewelry to match her outfits, that, of course, matched her shoes. Let’s not forget her cooking skills! To this day one of the things that I regret was not getting her recipe for curry chicken! When she cooked, the food was heavenly. The chicken was so tender that it fell off of the bone!

For ten plus years Mrs. Brown fought cancer. From a youthful perspective, I didn’t understand why Savah (that’s what we called her) traveled so much. I didn’t understand the long embraces when we greeted each other and the embraces were even longer when we were departing. I didn’t understand the drastic change in her diet. I didn’t understand the times that we sat and ate without the television resonated in the background as she gave one of the biggest smiles I have ever witnessed in my life as we ate ALL of the food that she cooked.

As time passed, I began to notice changes in my grandmother’s patterns. Savah didn’t move the same as I remembered. Her movements were slower and I noticed that she purchased more hair wigs. My mother informed us that it was something called “chemotherapy.” We found out that one of her breasts were removed and she wasn’t able to keep her food down. I am twisting my face and biting lips, fighting the tears as I write this post. Mrs. Brown was a fighter. I recall when she was hospitalized that she had a lot of visitors. Someone said, “Bibs, you are looking better.” And in appropriate West Indian/Caribbean fashion, she rolled her eyes and sucked her teeth.

The Fight Ends…

There were tubes all throughout her body if I remember correctly she had a turquoise head covering and we locked eyes. To this day I haven’t seen eyes that were as yellow as hers. I believe she knew her time was coming. Maybe she was tired of fighting. Maybe the pain was far too much for her to bare. Maybe the uncertainty took a toll on her spirit. I asked myself “Why wasn’t there a cure for my grandmother?!”
But in the end breast cancer won. The Cancer had a huge fight with that woman. Mrs. Brown passed on a Friday night…
I recall the awkward silence after the phone call. My beloved Savah was no longer with us.acs, americancancersociety, society, cancer, breastscancer, breasts, rmwp, realmenwearpink, plus male blogger, big and tall blogger, men of size, brawn blogger, big and tall model, plus male model, gentlemenscurb, kavah king, brawn model, big and tall, brawn, plus male, king, kavah, brooklyn, new york city, brawnfit, brawnfitness, brawn fashion, big and tall fashion, plus male fashion, gentlemen, curb, plusmalefashion, plus male model, brawn model, plus size influencer, influencer, plus male influencer,

 

Years later my aunt succumbed to breast cancer as well. It was sad and very hurtful, but I wasn’t as close to my aunt as I was to my grandmother.
I was angry. I was hurt. I am still hurt. I am still angry. You never really get over the death of loved ones, you just find a way to keep living.
I didn’t want any part of raising funds for a cure nor did I want to easier awareness of this horrible disease. I felt as off no one wanted help save my grandmother, why should I help others?

Where The Is Life, There Is Hope…

I realized years later that the perspective that I stood by is absolutely wrong and selfish. We all experience pain and will have to mourn our loved ones at some point.

The pain is unbearable, but I don’t want others to experience the pain that I experienced. Realistically we all will experience pain in some way, but if I can do my part to prolong someone’s pain and most importantly help find a cure, then I will do all that I can. This is why Real Men Wear Pink campaign is important to me. Cancer is a disease that affects everyone. (Men can get breast cancer too) Cancer is a disease that we can unify to fight.

Please donate what you can to the cause. We are all someone’s child. Many of us regardless of creed, color, size and economic status have been affected directly or indirectly.
This is probably my longest post to date. It was oddly therapeutic also. I haven’t shared these thoughts with those closest to me. Thank you for reading please donate! Click the link here to donate!

Skin Care For Men??

To be honest, I am very hesitant when it comes to trying men’s care products. I have sensitive skin, so I am absolutely apprehensive when it comes to lotions, creams and etc. A lot of companies will swear on a stack of Bible’s that all of their products are natural. But, as soon as you place the cream on your skin, you break out into a bunch of hives. My forehead is big enough and the last thing that I need is a bizarre rash while I am trying to take a photo. I am sure if some people zoomed in, then they could play connect the dots on my head.

We were in contact with Baldwin Savy care for men and they somehow persuaded me to give them a try. The brand uses all natural products for their skin care. If you need more information, watch the video below:

 

gentlemenscurb, gentle, mens, curb

I am very “particular,” when it comes to lotions and cream for men. I will be honest, I do like the fragrance in the lotion. It smells absolutely refreshing. Baldwin absolutely hit the mark with the fragrance. However, I am not a fan of the texture. Once you apply it, it’s very smooth but ends up feeling pasty. But, the fragrance definitely lasts.  So, in my humble opinion, Baldwin gets two out of three for me. However, this is my prefernce. Someone else may require something different from a skin care product. I can give you 2/3 reasons as to why you should give Baldwin a shot.

What Are “Fatheadz?”

I have worn glasses for most of my life. I take them off for my photos, but as of late I hold the glasses in my hand. It’s my way of staying true to myself. But, too many times I have difficulty finding frames to fit my face. Some frames were too small, the sides of the frames would press against my face. I felt that I looked like a fool. Please believe me, in high school my classmates let me know that I looked like a fool.

It Gets Better!!

Not only does Fatheadz provide glasses, but the also provide sunglasses! If your head is the size of my head, then you would be doing back flips!

We also had the opportunity to speak with Rico Elmore head of Fatheadz.

 

What prompted the CEO to make sunglasses for people of size? 

After forgetting to pack his sunglasses on his honeymoon to Las Vegas, Fatheadz CEO Rico Elmore shopped for hours to find a pair that would fit comfortably. Discouraged by the lack of options for the plus-size market, Elmore decided to launch a company that would make oversized eyewear for people with big heads and called it Fatheadz.

Regardless of having limited experience in the eyewear industry, Elmore was extremely eager to disrupt a stagnant industry and steered focus to his newfound dream. Elmore eventually manufactured his first pair of Fatheadz sunglasses in 2006 and hundreds of orders were being processed within weeks. Today, the brand offers more than 100 unique eyewear offerings for men and women of all head sizes.

Did he feel ostracized in the fashion world?

Thousands of consumers today feel ostracized in the fashion world as brands continue to ignore the “big & tall” markets. As the undisputed leader in the XL eyewear, Fatheadz is a motivating force on why we can no longer outcast the full-figure marketplace.  Whether its clothing or accessories like eyewear, no one should have difficulty finding products that are fit accurately and fashionable. Fatheadz will continue to challenge the status quo by not restricting consumers to sizing regulations while also providing stylish solutions for consumers of all cranium sizes.

Where is the company based? 

Fatheadz is based in Indianapolis.

The Gentlemen’s Curb highlights brands that advocate for men of size. Let us know what you think about Fatheadz, leave a comment or send an email to kavah.king@gentlemenscurb.com If you have a topic that you would like us to cover, make sure that you contact us.

What Is #BaeWalks?

A lot of awareness is being raised about body positivity. The truth is that the body positivity issue isn’t something that only women face. A lot of men of size have issues with their bodies and have to face negative stereotypes about being a person of size. Little by little things are starting to change. This year, we have seen a lot of clothing brands begin to cater to men of size. To be truthful, it’s a very exciting time! For years men of size have been forced to deal with a uniform look. This year at Full Figured Fashion Week, we witnessed something groundbreaking. Gwen Devoe and her hard working staff put together a fashion show showcasing clothing companies that cater to men of size! It was phenomenal! The event was sponsored by Mo Vaughn’s MVP Collections and consisted of SOS Denim and The Brandon Kyle Collection. Doesn’t that sound amazing?! The irony was that I could hardly breathe during the fashion show.

I was humbled and honored to participate in the “Bae Walks” fashion show! But, I was nervous. I kept thinking the craziest things! “What if I trip over my shoelaces?”  I thought. “What if the light reflects from my forehead and blinds the audience?” I know that I am exaggerating, but it felt as if my heart was lodged in my throat. I wasn’t nervous before the event, but when it came close to show time, the feelings were uncontrollable. I was nervous, but being nervous is no reason to quit or back out in any way. So, this forehead and I pushed through! The audience was receptive to all of the models involved. Special thanks to the audience, they made us feel very welcomed! I am happy that I had the opportunity to push for body advocacy. #BaeWalks ended up being a great event.

These brands showcased contemporary fashion for men of size. If you identify as a brawn, big and tall or a plus male. The clothing definitely fits you. The styles are diverse and can fit any occasion. I am honestly impressed. I enjoyed the camaraderie with the other models and I appreciate the support and encouragement from everyone male and female alike. There were great strides that were made for the #bodypositivitycause and I am happy to be a part. Much respect to Gwen Devoe and the Full Figured Fashion Week team.

Grooming Products Just For Men?

If you haven’t noticed, I am a guy. There are times where I don’t want to iron. I want to reach in my laundry bag and find the clothes with the least wrinkles. There are times where I just want to throw on a sweatshirt and call it a day. I know that I am not the only man of size or man for that matter that goes through this struggle. But, as men of size, big and tall, brawn and plus male we have to make sure that our hygiene is up to par. There aren’t many products that are catered to the specific needs of men. Why are we left out?

Who And What Is Harry’s?

Harry’s is a men’s grooming company. I will be honest, I was a bit reserved at first. But, I ended up giving the products a try.

I received a razor, a face scrub, and some lip balm. I was a bit reluctant. I like my lips to be soft and moisturized, but I don’t want the lip balm to look as if I am wearing lip gloss.  What stood out for me was the lip balm that had eucalyptus that gave my lips a refreshing feeling minus the gloss!

I am also a fan of the facial scrub! The eucalyptus made my face feel extra clean! My face felt like it was scrubbed by babies. I thought there was an orchestra and beams of light on my face. 

The razor was lite and easy to handle. I tried the razor and generally pleased with the outcome. I would recommend Harry’s, especially the grooming products. They don’t leave your face dry and your facial hair brittle after a wash. My face felt smooth and felt ready for a night on the town or to ready to start the day.  Let us know what you think!

A few of King Size Directs offerings. King Size Direct has something for every man of size.

Is There A Stop Shop For Men Of Size?

There are few clothing outlets for men of size. There can be some difficulty for a man who is big and tall, big and tall, brawn or plus size to find quality and fashionable clothing. Usually, men of size have to piece together our clothing. We have to go from store to store, website to website. The process of shopping can be annoying and frustrating. Yes, there are times where I want to find clothing and piece them together, but there are many instances where I am just not in the mood to shop around.

Enter: King Size Direct

I first came across King Size Direct, I was impressed. There were so many offerings for every aspect of life for a man of size. King Size Direct offers everything from athletic wear to pajamas. King Size even offers pajamas! Who would have thought that “onesies” were made for us? King Size has us covered. What I was most impressed with is the jewelry and fashion accessories for men that are available on the website. In many cases, my wrists are too large and some bracelets and watches do not fit. King Size Direct has an answer.

A watch that can actually fit you!

Jewelry

The jewelry that King Size offers sets the brand apart from many other big and tall brands. If the watch that is offered isn’t enough, make sure that you check out the rings that are carried as well. The brush stoned ring is a solid accessory to add to your collection.
