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.

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!

Body Positivity In The Gym

In a lot of aspects, when body positivity is mentioned the initial concept that is women are the only ones affected. In no way am I negating the struggles that women deal with, but I do recognize that men share similar struggles as women. Not all men have the traditional body type. There are images plastered everywhere with the idea of what is healthy or attractive. We are all born differently, so the idea of a “standard body” is unrealistic. We all have different body types, but it’s our imperfections that make us perfect.

The Gentlemen’s Curb At Blink Fitness?

Many of my readers know that I would prefer to work out in private or in a playground where I wouldn’t be bothered. Blink fitness began an initiative called #ManCrushMay where men of all body types have a platform to work out in a venue with no judgment. Here is some more information on Blink’s initiative:

In the era of the “dad-bod” phenomenon, it can be easy to overlook the absence of men in the body-positivity movement—which primarily focuses on women. However, a survey Blink Fitness conducted with Harris Poll found that:

80% of males said their relationship with their body could be improved

57% of males said it’s discouraging to try and work towards the unrealistic body images they see in the media

For the month of May (and every day), Blink Fitness is showing support for the guys, because body positivity should celebrate all bodies of every size, race, orientation, and gender. We’re transforming #MCM, #ManCrushMonday, into #ManCrushMay to celebrate men who are breaking barriers, being refreshingly honest, and redefining the “ideal male body.”

See #ManCrushMay in action in this video featuring male Blink members: https://youtu.be/p14y11CBbcA

Blink Fitness strives to create an environment where people of all fitness levels, shapes, and sizes can feel comfortable as they break out a sweat. The gym was founded on its unique brand philosophy, Mood Above Muscle™, which celebrates how exercise makes you feel, not just how it makes you look. The brand has been challenging fitness industry norms by redefining what “fit” looks like and prompting members to focus on the inner benefits of fitness. Body confidence knows no gender and all of us deserve to feel good about the body we’re in.

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.

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?

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.

I  am doing my best to break the “rules.” And I hope that I can provide inspirations for others to do the same.  Your size shouldn’t​ restrict you to certain colors.

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!)

As seen on Plus Model Mag

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?

Kavah King
Sarah Taylor

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:

I hope you enjoyed the pictures of my hometown. I also hope that you check out some of ASOS’ big and tall offerings. But, I would love to know what are your thoughts. What did you think of the scenery? What did you think of the looks? Leave a comment or email us kavah.king@gentlemenscurb.com. Until next time, it’s the Gentlemen’s Curb where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

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. Tell us what you think about the look, the grandfather shirt from Bad Rhino. Leave a comment or email kavah.king@gentlemenscurb.com. Until next time the Gentlemen’s Curb where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.
