What A Time To Be Alive?

These times are great times for men of size! If you consider yourself a plus male, a brawn male or a big and tall male, you should be just as excited as I am. Our voices are being heard by the fashion world. We have more options now than we ever did. Although some brands only want to capitalize on the surge of men of size clothing trend, the brand that we will discuss in this post does just the opposite. (Also, this is a testament to all of those that advocate for men and women of size. We are making strides! We will continue to knock down doors for all men size!)

Enter: Boohoo

Recently, Boohoo man launched their clothing collections for men of size. (You know this Big Boy was excited when I heard.) Check the press release here. I love the designs! They are risky but aren’t ridiculously gaudy. As a man of size, I can definitely appreciate the consideration of the designers on behalf of us. Boohoo’s clothing provides a balance that I can definitely appreciate. Boohoo has mainly casual clothing at this point, but I am looking forward to what coming from Boohoo.

Curvy Girls Rule

Unless you have been living under a rock, you are aware that Curvy Girls Rule. We decided to re-release the flagship curvy girls rule t-shirts. I am actually nervous about this venture. I was met with some resistance, there were some negativity and some challenges. But, I am the son of two hard working parents and they would be ashamed if I quit.

We Are Back!

Being a body positive advocate, it’s only right that I support curves. We have a tri-blend t-shirt! Yes, it’s soft and durable too. It’s 100% combed and ring spun cotton. The shirt has a shoulder to shoulder taping and cover stitched with hemmed sleeves.This super-soft, baby-knit t-shirt looks great on both men and women. It is an updated unisex tee, which fits like a well-loved favorite. Made from 100% cotton, except for heather colors, which contain polyester.

Click the photo to purchase your Curvy Girls Rule t-shirt!

What About Me?

I don’t recall seeing many men with my body type gracing the cover of magazines. To be honest, it’s a rare occurrence.  I remember being told that I was too big to perform certain functions, too big to play certain positions in sports. I felt ostracized in many ways. Especially in certain movies where the big guy only got sympathy “action” from the women. Because I had to witness these things, my confidence was affected.

Then one day the perceptions and opinions of others didn’t matter. I came to a realization. I am never going to be able to fit into a medium and I am absolutely fine with that. I teamed up with Sarah of Sarah Taylor’s Journey and we decided to provide some “size” representation by recreating a popular magazine cover. I hope that we did it justice. There is enough room for all body types to be represented in all aspects. We aren’t begging for inclusion, we are simply showing that we can. We hope to inspire others to feel confident within themselves by being the change that we want to see.  Thanks for stopping by. Let us know what you thought about the post.

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! I love the convenience of the business model.  Thanks for stopping by my portion of the planet. We do our best to provide lifestyle options and alternatives for men of size.

Will This Style Box Work For Men Of Size?

Due to the recent clothing accommodations for big and tall, plus males and brawn men, I am very excited. It has become our duty and privilege to bring you the latest news in fashion and fitness routines for men of size. Have you ever seen style boxes and thought that you were too big for a style box? Have you 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!

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.

Big And Healthy? Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Blogger

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?

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.

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.

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.

On The Road To 300

Gentlemen’s Curb
A lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

So, as most of you know this is a blog dedicated to men of size. If you call us big and tall, brawn or plus males. I have learned to love my body, especially because it’s my body. Trust and believe it took me a very long time to actually love my body. When you see these videos of me working on my body, I am not showing off in any way. I am showing my vulnerabilities so that other men and women who feel like me can feel comfortable about themselves and do what they want to do. You aren’t “too big” to do certain exercises. My goal weight is to be 300 pounds, although 300 pounds is still heavy from society’s perspective, but who cares? My personal goal is just that. Pardon my rant, there were some things on my mind.

Currently, I am working on an exercise that is extremely difficult from me. It’s an exercise that can be done anywhere. So, if you are working late and can’t make it to the gym, you have options. You can perform this exercise from the comfort of you home. There are so many areas targeted with this one exercise.

  1. Forearms
  2. Triceps
  3. Upper Back 
  4. Core   

 

Yeah, I could hardly do five! But, I am working towards doing more! Every journey starts with a small step. I started off with baby steps apparently.  Let us know what you think of this workout. Tell us how you felt after you tried the workout. Use the hashtag #OnTheRoadTo300 Please leave a comment or email us kavah.king@gentlemensurb.com
