Due to the recent clothing accommodations for big and tall, plus males and brawn men, I am very excited.

Have ou ever thought that you would love that opportunity?

Enter: The Winston Box

I had an awesome opportunity to speak with the owners of the Winston Box. The Winson Box informed me of their passion for providing clothing options for men of size and their sincerity in finding stylish and quality clothing!  “The Winston Box takes both its name and its inspiration from Sir Winston Churchill, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and one of the most stylish men to ever grace the planet.” With a strong foundation, I am already on board.

“Our mission is to dispel the myth that style and size are mutually exclusive by being purveyors of fashionable clothing designed to fit and flatter the Big & Tall man.”

Personally, I like the clothes. The clothing is of good quality, the makers of the Winston Box went above and beyond. The Winston Box manufactures their own clothing! “Having complete control of the design, manufacturing, and distribution of our signature label, we can deliver high-quality garments and consistent sizing at a reasonable flat rate.” That’s exciting! I am sold! I need the curators to send a few more packages! Great work, Winston Box!

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.

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.

Gentlemen’s Curb On The Runway-GentlemensCurb Plus Male Blogger

In Fashion In A BIG Way

On Saturday, January 28th, 2017, I had the opportunity to model for a line designed with the big and tall/plus male and the brawn man in mind. I am still speechless! I would have never thought in a million years that I would be on anyone’s runway. When I first started blogging, I just wanted to be a voice for men of size. I wanted to help men and encourage those men of size that are going through similar circumstances as myself. I had the first opportunity to model for Brandon Kyle Menswear, I didn’t think that I would be modeling again.

I am extremely thankful for the opportunity. I see myself as a blogger for men of size. So, when situations arise where I can model, I am extremely nervous. The venue was full to capacity, which added to my nervousness! But, I represented for all those that don’t have a voice. I represented for all of the men of size feel neglected when shopping due to their size. There are opportunities being presented for men of size. Designers and brands that cater specifically to us is a dream come true!! The idea alone is extremely exciting!

Here are some of the images from the event. Much love to Volare!  I hope that you enjoy the pics as much as I enjoyed taking them. My nervousness was worth it! I am excited, I hope many more opportunities come forward. Thanks for reading and sharing my experience. Feel free to comment or send an email kavah.king@gentlemenscurb.com. Until next time!

Shoe Carnival? Really?! Shoe Carnival!!

In Fashion In A BIG Way

shoecarnival

Many of you all know that I am obsessed with finding shoes in my size. As a lot of my readers know, I wear a size 15 mainly and a size 16 in some shoes. It’s difficult to find quality shoes in my size. When ordering online you have to worry about the cut, the design etc. The hunt can definitely get annoying! imagine you get excited for a pair of shoes for a specific event and it doesn’t fit. (I almost had an argument with a salesperson of a shoe company that will remain nameless! I didn’t want to raise my blood pressure up. I am on my hippie vibe!)

Gentlemen's Curb Shoe Carnival

I am from Brooklyn, New York. One of New York cities trends that have been consistent are construction Timberlands. As long as I can remember, we have been wearing Timberlands. Primarily due to the influence of hip-hop, the fall season made the black nubuck construction Timberlands necessary.  But, because of their popularity as of late, the price has jumped! I am all about trends, quality etc. But the price has to coincide with my budget!

Shoe Carnival Gentlemen's Curb

I found an alternative by shopping at Shoe Carnival! Shoe carnival carries wide width boots! I was able to get a size 15 W! So, a celebration is in order! I found some construction Timberlands in my size. Usually, the price is astronomical because of my size and because the boots are trendy. Not on Shoe Carnival, the more shoes that  I purchased, more discounts were applied to my order. If you are looking for a discount, then make sure you head over to Shoe Carnival. I am sure that you will be pleased, they are #CurbApproved

The last post I went into detail about the negativity I faced when working out due to my size. (You can read that here)

Don’t let anyone or anything stop you from achieving your goals. The only barricades that are present are the ones you establish in your mind. To be totally honest, I love to be the big man in the park. I love when people  have lower expectations of me because of my size.

I love that my size gives people preconceived notions about my abilities. I love that my intelligence is underestimated because I look like a brute. I love the assumptions, I can navigate a lot better under those circumstances.  I love that I am told that I “represent for the big brothers.” I love that opinions matter less and less to me when it comes to my body.

Gentlemen's Curb- Plus Male Blogger

I love the snickers and awkward stares that I get when I am exercising especially in the park. In case you haven’t realized, I have learned to be myself and love it! We are in a world where the masses set standards for what is acceptable. I am sure that I am heavier than a lot of my readers, but I don’t let my weight be a crutch. You shouldn’t either. My forehead is larger than most, but I still push myself. If I can, then I know for sure that you can!

At times I am the big man that gets too much attention in the gyms. Yes, it is hard to focus when fellow gym members are trying to give my workout a critique. I am not here for personal trainers that learned their routine from YouTube. Just leave me alone and let me build my “brawn” in peace. I don’t want a six-pack. Most importantly I don’t want to look like you. It makes me feel as if something is wrong with my body because I am constantly approached about correcting “techniques.” Don’t confuse my statement, I don’t know everything and I am willing to learn especially when it comes to bettering my life and my health.

Fitness in a BIG way!

But, why tell me irrelevant things that you don’t apply for yourself? I don’t want to have your frame. I am perfectly fine with my body. All 324 pounds of my body! From the huge forehead to these boats I call feet. To avoid the fake trainers and confrontation, I like to work out in the park. Yesterday, I decided to go to the local playground. Jackie Robinson Park located in Brooklyn, New York. Again, I am met with “easy big fella” comments. To this day I am trying to figure out why is my size any of your concern. At this point, I am tired of others trying to force their perspectives on me. I work hard at being the best version of myself every day. Who cares if you don’t think that I am the perfect model for health? To this day I am trying to figure out why is my size any of your concern? I learned to embrace and love myself. So, much so that the true focus of this post is for everyone to love themselves. Do not let your size limit you in ANY way. Be yourself and be awesome while you are at it!
