Summer Time In New York City…

I love the summer! There are so many possibilities in the summer! The ice cream trucks drive through theneighborhood at least twice a day. The “icee” carts and all through out the local parks. The summer youth basketball tournaments are some of the best basketball games to witness. (I love to watch the youth cultivate their talent.) The food tastes so much better, even the halal carts seem to have some extra spice.  To live in New York City during the summer months you will realize that there is nothing like it on the planet earth! I am willing to debate, I am not being biased because New York City is my place of birth.

Bad Rhino Is Back On The ‘Curb

Bad Rhino is a brand that has stood with the Gentlemen’s Curb consistently. Bad Rhino has so many options for men of size. The clothes are built with the modern man of size in mind. The colors for the clothing are different than traditional clothing for men of size. So, when I step off the ‘Curb, Bad Rhino is a brand that has many options that fit my aesthetic.

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.

Hoodies In The Summer?

As much as I love summer, the one thing that I dislike is that the weather won’t allow me to wear a hoodie. Just like most of men of size, one of my favorite pieces of clothes is a hoodie. Most plus males, big and tall men and brawn men, would definitely agree with me. Hooded sweatshirts are a necessity! If I had my way, I would wear a hoodie all of the time. I would sweat like I played a championship game if I wore a traditional hoodie in the summer. So, when I find a clothing company that can help me wear a hoodie in the summer, I get excited!

If you are like me, then you are very excited. Can I wear a hoodie in all seasons? Like this is actually possible? It’s damn near monumental!Make sure that you head on over to The Winston Box to get yours. The sleeveless hoodies is an item that we will definitely benefit from. There are no sleeves, so you can definitely stay hooded up and stay cool. There are style options available to be sent to your house!

Summer Time in New York City!

The weather in New York City has no been the greatest for me. I am a man that loves the heat! I can’t wait until summer hits. But, it’s like summer is taking forever. I can’t wait to carry a towel that matches my outfit. I am sure all men of size can relate to that! Towels are definitely a necessity! On those summer days that we crave, it isn’t uncommon to find an abandoned building and reminisce with friends in New York City. Those are some of the best times in my life.

Why Are There Fashion Rules For People Of Size?

I remember when I was younger and I was told that I couldn’t wear certain clothes because of my size. Imagine at a young age being told that you couldn’t wear a certain color because of your size! It will definitely affect a growing person’s level of self-esteem. I am sure that all people of size have heard crazy rules due to their size. Whether you classify yourself as a  brawn/plus male and or big and tall, you have been told that you should wear the color black because it “makes you look smaller.” Why does my size put me in a place for different fashion rules?

Kavah King for The Gentlemen’s Curb

It’s About Time To Break Those Rules!

Well, I heard one of those fashion “rules” being recited to someone that was younger than me and I instantly saw myself in this young man. Instead of having him go through that, I decided to make a difference. Yes! We can finally wear colors that aren’t dark. Get rid of those bizarre rules. I am no longer concerned with what colors I should wear due to my size. I am over it. Tell someone that cares.

There Are Some Things On My Mind…

As many of you know, I have been on a journey trying to get to my goal weight of 300 pounds. Although I love my size, I think it’s imperative to be as healthy in my size. No, a certain size does not make you healthy. But, I want to make my best effort to me a man of size that is healthy. I want to change many of the perspectives and stereotypes that are damaging to the perception of men of size. We see that there are many athletes that share our structure and are more positive representations than the images and characters placed before us

New Goals!

By frequenting this blog, you may get the idea that I am obsessive at times. Yes, I am one of those weird people that get consumed with a project or a task that I am working on. Because of my weight, I chose to exercise via calisthenics. (I am well into my 300’s, that isn’t a secret.)I figure that I am heavy enough, if I can balance and navigate my weight, then I will be in a better position. It would make me stronger and I would be more comfortable with my body. There was an exercise that I could not do. At first, I felt defeated, but I remembered that we all have to crawl before we walk.

Let’s Walk This Road Together

So, now I am sharing my new goal with you all. I am trying to perform a static hold with one arm! I know that is extremely far fetched because of my size, but that is even more of an incentive to push forward! So, please walk with me! I am going to do my very best to reach this goal. It will be a milestone for me and I hope that I can share it with you. From the photos, you see that I have a looong way to go!

By now, everyone knows that I love of hoodie. I am sure most big and tall, brawn, and plus males feel the same way. I had it my way, I would wear a hoodie anytime that I can. For a lot of men of size, there is a standard. Most of us love hoodies! As a matter of fact, a hooded sweatshirt, a pair of jeans and a pair of sneakers are the thing that I can wear all of the time!

As many of you know, I am a resident of New York City. The borough of Brooklyn to be exact. But, Lower Manhattan has some great scenery, so I decided to take ASOS with me! The Puma hoodie is a great staple in my hoodie collection. They carry a size 4x and midsection of the hoodie is elongated. So, the hoodie won’t rise up as you walk, or if you have a book bag it won’t rise up and show your backside. (This happens to me every now and then and I cant be the only one!)

I’m proof that you can be big AND healthy.

A few months ago, I went to the doctor’s office for a physical examination. After the nurse recorded my weight and vitals, she told me that she was impressed because I was “healthy”.

Then she asked me: “Can you tell your secret?”

I replied, “What secret?” to which she asked, “How are you that heavy and healthy?”

At the time, I was 324 pounds and I have to admit that her question offended me. But it was not a surprise.

After the doctor conducted the physical exam, he handed me a sheet of paper and told me that I should see a nutritionist. As I left the office, I glanced at the sheet to see that the doctor had written on it that I was “morbidly obese.”
Sound familiar? We have all been led to believe that being healthy is only associated with a certain size and lean physique. If you’re overweight, you can’t possibly be healthy. However, I am proof that that belief is wrong.

I have never been a small man. It isn’t in my genetics. That doctor’s visit is something that has stayed on my mind and made me question a few things. Is the medical world basing their diagnoses solely on stereotypes? What does “healthy” look like? Just because I am a man of size, I am automatically viewed as unhealthy? There are many athletes that weigh more than me. Are they getting calls from the doctor that they are near death because of their weight?

I was curious as to how a woman might feel in this same situation so I spoke with my blogger friend and sometimes workout partner Sarah of Sarah Taylor’s Journey to get her thoughts on this topic of being healthy regardless of size. This is what she had to say:

I’ve always been plus – I came out of the womb at almost 10 pounds and almost 2 feet long and yet I have always been active. I’ve played sports most guys play – Football, Basketball, Ruby, Volleyball, running, etc. But for some reason, it shocks people that I can move the way I do and can keep up at the gym. I recently started working out at a new gym that offers Bootcamp style classes and on my first day, I got lots of looks that read “What’s this big girl doing in here?”. As I met new trainers each day, they would approach me to correct me and my form, and as they approached me they would back away, realizing that I have amazing form and can keep up. Why is it when people look at a plus size woman, do they think she can’t be fit? Does that mean I can’t be active, healthy and fit if I’ve got a little more meat on my bones than the size 2 working out next to me? Please …. let me out squat you!

There has to be a new standard that needs to be set. You cannot diagnose someone’s health by just looking at them. Both men and women of size are healthy and we do work out! No, I don’t want a six pack, but as long as I am healthy, I will be fine.

We don’t need your “encouragement”. I certainly don’t need to hear, “Go, big man”, as if it’s a major thing for me to be working out at my size. I don’t approach a smaller person and say “Keep going little fella!” We are all capable and our size does not indicate that we are unhealthy. It’s time to shatter stereotypes and move forward.

ASOS In Brooklyn?

The voices of men of size are finally being heard! There are finally some better clothing options for men of size. ASOS recently made an announcement that they were launching a big and tall line, I was excited. (I get excited when I hear about new designers that cater to men of size. You can read the blog post on the initial launch here. We were also able to sit down with one of the models as well, check out our interview on Scott Bayliss.)

But, enough of that! The Gentlemen’s Curb had an another opportunity to collaborate with ASOS!  I am a resident of New York City, Brooklyn to be exact. So, I decided to sample the clothing in one of the beloved locations in Brooklyn. There is a lot of history on the bridge and what ASOS did s definitely broke ground and placed the brand on a path to become an iconic and diverse brand. So, the location of the Brooklyn bridge is a no-brainer.

First, I want to start with the look. ASOS has a motorcycle jacket for big men! I was in shock, usually, the brands that I find don’t fit my arms, but the jacket fails to pass my stomach. I found one that I loved in ASOS’ plus male section.

I matched the jacket with a long sleeve t-shirt:

What did you think of the scenery? What did you think of the looks? Leave a comment or email us kavah.king@gentlemenscurb.com.

We need more options! Plus male/Big and Tall/Brawn clothing options that are needed. The Brandon Kyle menswear collection is one of the brands that are filling the void. Brandon Kyle is a designer that caters to men of size. In a time where men of size are being excluded by many designers and clothing companies, there are a few that decided to step outside of the box. When Brandon Kyle called me and asked me to sample some clothing from the denim collection, I jumped at the opportunity.

I was asked to sample the duster from the denim collection. To be honest, initially, I had some reservations about the duster. I did some research. I searched images on Google and I still wasn’t thoroughly sold. I didn’t think that a duster would look amazing on a man of size. After putting the reservation behind me, I got dressed.

The duster and the denim cargo was a great combination. I was on my way to a happy hour on a rainy day in Brooklyn, New York. (One of the best cities in the world, arguably the best. Pardon me if my perspective seems biased.) I threw on a blue hoodie that matched with the denim. It ended up looking great. The combination is definitely progressive!
