The Gentlemen’s Curb The ‘Curb Year In Review
It’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. First, I want to Thank God for this opportunity. I have been a blogger that models every now and then. I have been blessed with some amazing opportunities and to be absolutely honest, I am super humbled. Humility is the catalyst that helps me to push forward. You are only as good as your last post. You shouldn’t stay in the past because time is always moving. There have been many sacrifices and many ups and downs that I have been blessed to overcome. Some struggles I made public and some struggles I made private.
However, this lookbook started out as a crazy idea. I stand a man that is 6’1 and 324 pounds. The idea seemed impossible and insane. I would think to myself “it would be dope to have a lookbook for men of size.” I haven’t seen a lookbook for big and tall/plus size men. (To be fair, we have lookbooks with specific brands, but not a book highlight brands for men of size exclusively.)
It’s Isnt Always About You
Because there are things that are bigger than me, I have to push forward. As I child, I was always bigger than a lot of my peers. Too many times, I got the “fat” jokes. So, it made me insecure. Insecure about myself, my body and especially my abilities. I felt as I had to be one of the people that pushed for size inclusion so that those behind won’t have to experience what I went through. There are people just like you doing amazing things!
But, we worked through my frustrations to bring you a book that’s the first of this kind.
Celebrate Your Accomplishments
It’s a huge accomplishment and I am extremely happy and privileged to share it with you. The pictures selected are some bold and historic photos that highlight some points of 2018.
This is an accomplishment not only for men of size but the modern man. Let’s continue to break barriers and shatter stereotypes all while being ourselves.
I want to thank all of the WOMEN who have been on the front lines of body advocacy, body positivity movement. Your courageous actions will never go unnoticed and unrecognized. Thank You.
The Official Big & Tall Lookbook
In week two of The ‘Curb Year In Review: The Official Big & Tall Lookbook we are recreating an image of a magazine cover that proved to be very impactful.
Chadwick Boseman played the role of T’challa in Marvel Black Panther. There was a lot of media attention towards the movie and inspired men and women across the world.
This look is provided by one of my favorite brands for big & tall men. That brand being The Winston Box. I live the service, to be honest. I look forward to the service. I love high-quality fabrics that are being used. (For instance the bomber jacket in the photo. It’s dope.) The brand also carries up to a size 6x! There is something for everyone. Plus, they are an awesome group of guys, too.
Besides let us know what you think of week two. I am excited and I definitely can’t wait to share more with you. If you have any comments or feedback, feel free to email us! firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.
