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:

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.

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.

shaving, grooming, men's care, big and tall, plus male,brawn

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.

I couldn’t sit here and write all of the offerings of King Size Direct, but I strongly suggest that you check out all of their offerings. I am certain that you will find something that fits your aesthetic.  Don’t ever feel because you are a man of size that you are limited in expressing yourself through fashion. This is one company that keeps men of size in mind. Leave your comments and opinions below. Or you can email us kavah.king@gentlemenscurb.com Until next time.
