Here Is What I Disliked About Full Figured Fashion Week…

The Gentlemen’s Curb is a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. As a blogger/influencer, I try to be as transparent and direct with my readers. So, I will be as honest as possible, whether it’s about clothing, vitamins, or you name it! So, in this case, I have to “keep it a thousand.” What I didn’t like about Full Figured Fashion Week  was that I had such an amazing time, the days went faster than expected!(Sorry, about the click bait!) Before I knew it,  Full Figured Fashion Week was over. I was a little upset because I wish we could encourage, network and advocate for people of size all of the time! Gwen Devoe and her staff have provided an outlet and I am definitely appreciative to be part of such a beautiful event. Much respect to Gwen Devoe and her staff for another amazing event. The crowd was beautiful. The women came dressed to kill, I think the women say “slay,” but I am a whole man, I am not going to say that! LOL

There were many events that took place during FFFWeek. There were networking opportunities for influencers, companies, and models all throughout the week. There were workshops to help advance your career in the industry. The fashion show finale was amazing! (Well, the parts that I saw. I had an obligation and ended up being late for the event.)But, my favorite was the Curves at Sea event. The women looked absolutely amazing! The men did their part.  The crowd was absolutely runway ready and trust and know that all the women were dressed to kill and destroyed every stereotype about “plus size fashion.” Listen, I am going, to be honest with you I haven’t partied the way I did “at sea” in a very long time! Make sure that next year you are definitely in the house!

Also, it was awesome to meet and catch up with people that I speak to through the various social media networks. I have a feeling that I met some good people that will be around for a long time. Overall, the week was a success. I learned so much, got to mingle, dance and network with some good people with like minds.  I woke up on Sunday wishing that there was another event to attend. Unfortunately, I will have to wait until next year. Until next time it’s the Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

The Curb Around The World: Kayaking! Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Size Male Blogger

In The Curb Around The World

*As Posted On Plus-Model-Mag

man travels

A few weeks ago, I headed to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic for some rest and relaxation. I live in Brooklyn, New York so I jumped at the chance to breathe some fresh air.

Most of the time, traveling as a person of size is not easy. But… traveling is good for the soul so you should never let your size stop you from exploring what’s out there in the world. Hispaniola has a very rich history and I’m grateful that I was able to experience the island.

Besides the normal hiccups traveling, I realized that Delta Airlines is NOT made for people of size. I felt like I was sitting in a child’s seat the entire flight. I know for sure that the next time I fly with Delta Airlines, that I am upgrading to first class; not for anything more than for comfort.

Despite the flight issue, once there, I had a phenomenal time! I can’t fully describe how calming and freeing it was to do absolutely nothing. I ate when I wanted. I slept when I wanted. I even got comfortable when I wanted.

 

The menu was amazing! I had pineapples and watermelon during every meal. Since pineapples are my favorite fruit, the fact that there was so much pineapples available to eat, that was a highlight of my vacation.

I ate so much fruit and drank so much water that I felt refreshed and ready to tackle everything. And that I did!

I tried so many things that were on my “must-do” list while there. Most notably, I mustered up the courage to go kayaking.

At 6’1 and 324 pounds, you become hesitant about trying new activities where your feet aren’t on the ground. However, I decided to face my apprehensions and get my “husky” self into the Atlantic Ocean.

**That’s what’s my great grandmother calls me: “Husky”. I can’t even argue with a 94-year-old woman.**

I listened carefully to the directions given and hopped into the kayak. The water can hold up cruise ships that weigh thousands of pounds. So I had nothing to be fearful or apprehensive about, right? Nah.

I ended up overboard. It was one of the funniest things that happened on vacation. I should have placed myself in the center, which would have balanced the boat. In retrospect, I wasn’t as centered in the boat as I thought. I tried again and was successful. I was not about to give up.

I almost kayaked to Spain! <laughs> Not bad for the big guy. Don’t let your size be your crutch. Always keep trying until your goals are reached. Whether you’re trying a new activity or just trying anything in life where you are hesitant because of your size, never give up.

Overall, I had a phenomenal time and suggest all men, especially of size, get out there and travel. The Caribbean sun and blue water is a must for everyone.

In traveling, make sure you can be accommodated. Make sure you aren’t cramped up. Don’t sit near a window seat on a plane unless you have enough leg room. The only thing I wanted to do was stretch my legs on the flight!

 

Until next time… Kavah

I am from Brooklyn, New York. Although I love my city, sometimes city life can be too intense. At that point I realized a vacation was needed. The workload I placed on myself was starting to get to me, I decided that I was going to take some time away to gather my thoughts.

I realized that Delta’s seats are not for men of size! I felt like I was in a box the entire flight. I am going to upgrade to first class the next time that I fly with Delta, for comfort reasons only. But, comfort is definitely needed regardless of size. It’s just that some of us need more “comfort” than others. The flight was only for a few hours, but it felt like a year and a half! After the flight situation, the airplane landed and I was off to my hotel.  The decor of the hotel was amazing! The floors were marble and there were exotic animals on the resort.

I hung out with the locals of the island. They were friendly, I saw the churches and the schools. I was given a taste of daily life on the island. I went to the beaches that were far way from the resorts. Those beaches were the best! The water was so blue that it looked fake! I saw plantain plantations and coca leaf plants, I enjoyed the care free life style the island! The weather was hot and the beaches seemed to call you in! But as usual some activities that I planned didn’t go as well for me because of my size. We made it work, size doesn’t stop the show! I needed some clothing that matched my size and my personality.

Enter: Large Lad clothing company is a company that is made with men of size in mind. The slogans “large and fully in charge” speaks to how I feel about myself. And if you are a man of size reading this post, then the slogan should speak to you as well. Being 6’1 and 324, I am what many would consider to be a large lad. I am sure Stevie Wonder could see that! Check out Large Lad Clothing and see the awesome clothes! Jayme Weir the CEO of LLC, put a royal feeling into many of the designs of the LLC clothing brand. I always wanted to ride an ATV and all other motorized vehicles that would get me a traffic ticket if I drove them in New York City. I fell in love with speeding, I guess the Large Lad clothing got to my head, because I felt that I owned the highways and cause an accident. I am safe. No one was harmed, but the experience was amazing.
