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.

As Man Of Size, Have You Ever Felt Limited In Fashion?

In too many cases, I have obeyed the rules. I do believe at on point I stuck to safe clothing styles. As a man of size, I would choose to wear a polo shirt, an oxford shirt or a sweatshirt. I felt as if I couldn’t go wrong with these choices. At any time that you saw me, I was safe. As a big and tall/brawn/plus size man, I felt as if those were the only options available for me. I wouldn’t admit it before, but I will admit it know. To be totally honest, those clothing styles made me feel trapped. I felt extremely limited.

New Rules With ASOS

Many brands have ventured into making clothes for men of size. But, ASOS has had a few diverse clothing options for us! We are done with traditional looks for fashion for men of size! New York City has some of the best bottomless brunches on the planet and I made an appearance and represented for all men of size. The drinks were unlimited, but so were the looks. I am not a man who receives compliments often, but I felt like the fat version of Lance Gross!

I also paired this look with some boots from ASOS! I wasn’t aware that they carried large sizes. I wear a size 15, so when I see a brand that carries large size, I get very excited.

Sometimes we have to stop making excuses…

A lot of us make excuses as to why we cant work on the best version of ourselves. From a fitness stand point, we make excuses as to why we cant work out. “The gym is too far.” “The gym is too expensive.” Or the most famous line “I will start on Monday.” I know these lines, because I have said them myself time and time again. And at a point, I actually believed these lines. As a man of size, I definitely need to be more aware of my health. I don’t ever want to be skinny, I love my size and my weight. I just want to be alive for the long haul. So, I am trying to convince myself that these are excuses and will no longer be accepted.

Instead of making reasons as to why we can’t go to the gym, there are many items in our homes and playgrounds that we can use to benefit our bodies. For instance, the couch at home or the chair at the office can be used to our physical benefit. For some illustrated examples click the link here.

Spring Weather in New York City.

The spring season can cause some bi-polar weather. During the early morning you need a jacket and a hoodie, then during the afternoon, we are wearing tank tops. Then in the evening, we are back to wearing jackets and hoodies. This type of weather can definitely be problematic for men of size. As men who are brawn/big and tall/ plus males, we tend to sweat a little more than others. It isn’t a bad thing, just remember that a little sweat won’t kill you. But, Bad Rhino has some styling options for us.

Bombers & T-Shirts!

To some, it may seem like a no-brainer. To others, it makes perfect sense! Especially, because of the weather we a prone to catch a cold or two. So, we have to make sure that we are prepared for the weather. I matched a Bad Rhino  signature t-shirt, with a classic bomber and one of my favorite scarves. When the weather changes, I have enough on to protect me from the cold. And I can still represent well for #menofsize

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!

Welcome back to the Gentlemen’s Curb! I apologize for my absence but I had some family issues and occurrences that I need to attend to. I am like most of you, I do my best to put my family first. So, these things without going into detail, slowed me down just a bit. But, I am back to represent for all men of size.

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.

Kavah King, Sarah Taylor

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.

Sarah Taylor

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.

Enter: MVP Collections

When I got the news that Mo’ Vaughn started a clothing line catered to plus males/brawn/big and tall men, I was absolutely excited. Mo Vaughn had a standout career in MLB. Here we have a man of size who is an established athlete and a champion. It’s only fitting that men of size are equated with this level of excellence. I felt honored to collaborate, especially because it shatters stereotypes that men of size aren’t gifted athletically.

     With MVP To Have To Do It BIG!

The Notorious B.I.G. was one of the best rappers but his career was cut short because he was murdered. The Notorious BIG was a man of size. The rapper embraced his size and help many people appreciate men of size who have ben viewed previously as sloppy, insecure and awkward. (Heavy D was another rapper who was known as the overweight lover. Heavy D was stylish, gifted lyrically and the ladies loved him.) I applaud the efforts that designers make to cater to what men of size. We are a bit tired of the old designs and tired of being limited to “traditional” styles.

At MVP Collections, Mo Vaughn made sure that the designs weren’t old. They weren’t just oxfords or polos shirts that brands that cater to men of size usually carry. Personally, I felt like I needed the heather gray t-shirt with a curved hem. Which is almost impossible to find at sizes 3x and up. Trust me! When I saw the shirt I almost did a backflip. Yes, all 300 pounds of me.  I searched for a while to find a shirt with a curved hem for men of size and MVP Collections answered the call.

If you haven’t gathered as of now, at times I like to throw on a suit. Then at times throw on one of my hoodies. It’s all about diversity. Men of size should look clean and fashionable at all times, in my opinion. We already have a certain command, we definitely have to look the part. But, some days I find that casual wear is needed. At times, I don’t want a collar on my neck. I did some searching and Bad Rhino came with a solution.

So, we are back with one of my favorite brands! That’s absolutely correct! Bad Rhino. I am a fan of any brand that provides different selections for men of size. The truth of the matter is that it’s difficult for men of size to find clothes aren’t plain and make us look stiff. I love what Bad Rhino is doing for the big and tall/plus male/brawn males. The styles that are available. There are tapered jeans for men of size. There are skinny jeans for men of size. Yes! You read correctly. Do you know how difficult it is to find skinny jeans for men of size?! Their denim collection is an absolute gift.

Casual looks are necessary. They are comfortable and relaxing on the days where you feel like laying low or catching a happy hour or brunch which are extremely popular in New York city.

NYC Has Some Crazy Weather

The transition months between winter and spring in Brooklyn, New York can be brutal. One day the weather can be 60 degrees and the next day the weather can be back to below thirty degree temperatures. As a man of size, the warmer weather can be perfect for us! The weather where I can wear a sweatshirt and be at peace. But, today I decided to switch it up and bought Bad Rhino along for the ride!

Bad Rhino From Head To Toe!

With limited styling options for big and tall, brawn and plus size men, Bad Rhino is a brand that does it’s best to make style accommodations for men of size. From their shoe selection to their denim collection, Bad Rhino is one of my favorites. I love their prices as well, make sure that you subscribe to their list and stay updated with sales and promotions.

On days when there are warmer winter days, it’s like the ENTIRE city comes alive. So, I had to make sure that men of size were represented the right way! Bad Rhino’s sweater selection is amazing, especially because Bad Rhino carries up to a size 5x! I would recommend the cream sweater! The design sets it apart and the woven intricacy can be appreciated.

The denim collection is dope! You can find your exact style and trust me they have your style! On some days I prefer the tapered look, but today I decided to go with the straight cut.
