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.

Kavah King
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.

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.

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

NYE With Argyleculture And JCPenney

2016 was a great year. There were some highs and some lows, I am thankful there were more highs than lows! We are all thankful that we are on this side of the living. As the new year approaches, many of us want to make resolutions and embrace changes in our lives. But, as the new year approaches, I want to showcase a brand that has been consistent for years.

JCPenney!

I had the privilege of attending a party sponsored by JCPenney. I had an amazing time and I met some amazing people. At the party, there were some clothes on display and a certain blazer in particular caught my eye. I had to do some investigating! I always try to keep my eye out for fashion, especially for men of size. We don’t have many options in terms of fashion. When I find something that’s fashionable and it fits! I jump at the opportunity.

Argyleculture

Well, I am here to let you know that Argyleculture has some great styling options. This blazer immediately grabbed my attention! The blazer gave a formal and casual feel. I am not sure of a better way to bring in a new year, full of possibilities! Make sure that you check out JCPenney’s offerings and bring in the new year with some consistency. Of course, for the New Year we celebrate. Well, in my case I celebrate a lot! I take life seriously. On my way to this evening’s events, I had to make sure that Argyleculture was with me. Sometimes, you have to take the “old” with you in the new year. Much success to all in the New Year. May all of your paths be peaceful and pleasant.

ASOS for Big and Tall Men?!! -Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Blogger

ASOS now carries clothes for taller men!

ASOS now carries clothing for the big and tall, brawn and plus males. We now have another outlet, which is great! I am jumping ahead again. I heard that ASOS had some great menswear, but some of the sizes that were available when I researched them, would definitely not fit me. So, I went to sleep early last night. I had a very long weekend and I was trying to catch all the sleep that I missed. When I got up this morning, I noticed that the topic of conversation was ASOS. I wasn’t aware that that ASOS launched their clothes for big and tall men.

I had to do an investigation! I had to look at the clothes, too many times we have heard of a launch for big and tall men’s clothes and the clothes did not live up to the expectations. Usually, the clothes a boring and dull, but that isn’t the case with ASOS! I was actually impressed with the effort. A lot of the clothes I could see myself in. They are clothes that my grandfather wouldn’t wear! The clothing sizes actually go to a 4XL which is music to my ears. I hate to use the word “trendy,” but ASOS is making a very strong bid to be in fashion conversations for men of size. I am going to purchase some of the brands clothes, then I will provide a review.

The Gentlemen’s Curb is a blog that is geared towards fashion and fitness for men of size. As a man of size, there are many stereotypes that I am faced with. One popular stereotype is that men of size are clumsy. Another stereotype is that men of size aren’t the most intelligent, but are brutes. We can go further, but stereotypes are damaging. Negative stereotypes simply prevent human growth. But,what’s life without variety?

 

#BloggerForBlackLives

I guess a man over six feet and over three hundred pounds can be menacing. I can be menacing, to those that don’t know me.I guess it’s all about perspective. I am assumed to be a thief. Too many times when I am walking people grab their purses and clutch their belongings. Don’t let me enter an elevator with people, some people become very uncomfortable.

Just because I prefer to wear a hooded sweatshirt, does not mean I have the intent to do something malicious. Marvel’s Netflix series “Luke Cage” took a black man in a hooded sweatshirt, something that seemed so menacing into a champion of the people. And the most impressive part is that he was bulletproof. A bulletproof black man when black men have been murdered by police. I had to throw on one of my favorites, a hooded sweatshirt, especially for this post. What I enjoy is viewed as menacing and threatening by many. How are my clothes threatening?

black_6

Black Lives Matter?

If conditions were better, there wouldn’t be a cry to preserve black life.
Some cases remind me of the movie “Judge Dredd” where the law enforcement became the judge, the jury, and executioner. Men have been murdered on camera in front of their families. Men have been murdered for the world to witness. The body’s of men have laid in the street rotting in front of the world, with no regard or respect for human life. The news of hearing an unarmed black man killed by police has become the norm. The news of the murder is spread, then outage happens. Then the protests come and afterward the person murdered becomes a hashtag for a few weeks. Then it’s business as usual for most of America. But, the families of those murdered are forced to deal with the trauma.

This isn’t a “hate” post, but this post is to raise awareness about a problem where innocent people are being murdered by police. These men didn’t deserve to die? At what point will we recognize that all human life is valuable?

Hoodies By Hanes – Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Blogger

In Fashion In A BIG Way

Gentlemen's Curb Plus Male Blogger

Hanes

If you frequent this blog you get the idea that I love hooded sweatshirts. They are perfect for the fall. When I am late to run errands, I can grab them and they can go over anything. I rarely carry umbrellas and hooded sweatshirts can definitely protect you from the elements. I don’t wear peacoats every day. Sometimes bomber jackets don’t match my mood, but hooded sweatshirts match my mood constantly. I know that I sound biased, but don’t judge me.
The unfortunate part is a) hooded sweatshirts can be very expensive at times. b) sometimes it is very hard to find a hooded sweatshirt in your size. You may have to pay extra due to your size.

Hanes

I found a company that has a solution for all of the questions that I raised. I was skeptical because I am sensitive about my hoodies. After ordering from them, I wasn’t disappointed at all. I love the diversity, the colors and the options of the style of the hooded sweatshirts. Hanes.  Hanes carries up to size 5x! It’s perfect for ladies that want an oversized hooded sweatshirt and perfect for men that actually wear a 5x. My only complaint is that the hood is too small for my head. It isn’t the company’s fault that I have a huge head. I am not only the forehead gang’s president and premier client. Let us know how we did! Email kavah.king@gentlemenscurb.com
