This summer is proving to be memorable. I may argue that Summer 17 may be the best summer to date. I had the awesome opportunity to travel to The Curvy Fashionista’s #TCFStyleExpo in Atlanta, Georgia. I booked a flight and a hotel room, then I got ready for the ATL. This year for the first time, men of size were included. Which made me a bit nervous, I felt like the stakes were high. There was only one minor problem, I had no idea what to wear.

After much thought, I decided to head to JCPenney. JCPenney offers a variety of stylish and affordable fashion that help men of size feel fashionable and feel confident. JCPenney has affordable options for men of size and it’s absolutely effortless. The whole shopping experience was easy. I went to the #TCFStyleExpo ready for the world in a way that only men of size can!

I had an amazing time! I think subconsciously I am planning another trip the peach state! The southern hospitality was unparalleled. I am from New York City and in most cases, we only say good morning to those in our neighborhoods. This was not the case in Atlanta. I felt out of place if I didn’t use my manners. This mindset carried over into the #TCFStyleExpo. The energy was absolutely amazing. Men and women uniting with a similar understanding isn’t something that should be taken lightly. The event was amazing and I felt amazing in clothes that look great and that are affordable. It’s a win/win. I had the privilege to meet fellow brawn/plus male/big and tall influencers such as from Chubstr, Rah Mosely from Rah Mosely and celebrity stylist and blogger Marv Neal.

Summer Time In New York City…

I love the summer! There are so many possibilities in the summer! The ice cream trucks drive through theneighborhood at least twice a day. The “icee” carts and all through out the local parks. The summer youth basketball tournaments are some of the best basketball games to witness. (I love to watch the youth cultivate their talent.) The food tastes so much better, even the halal carts seem to have some extra spice.  To live in New York City during the summer months you will realize that there is nothing like it on the planet earth! I am willing to debate, I am not being biased because New York City is my place of birth.

Bad Rhino Is Back On The ‘Curb

Bad Rhino is a brand that has stood with the Gentlemen’s Curb consistently. Bad Rhino has so many options for men of size. The clothes are built with the modern man of size in mind. The colors for the clothing are different than traditional clothing for men of size. So, when I step off the ‘Curb, Bad Rhino is a brand that has many options that fit my aesthetic.

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!

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.

To be honest, winter isn’t my favorite season. Yes, the winter fashions are amazing. I love the pieces that the cold weather brings. I was born in the summer, so I am partial to warm weather. I would rather wear a nice t-shirt and some shorts at times. But, I am a resident of New York city. During the long hard winter days, every now and then we get days that remind us of spring.

So, on those days I cant wait to thow on some streetwear! I bought along some of my favorite brands along for my random musings in Brooklyn,  New York City.

The Sweatshirt by ASOS. ASOS launched thier big and tall/plus male line. So, I had to try it out for myself. I like the fit, the size that I am wearing is a 3X.

The hat and t-shirt is by Volare. They provide some excellent options for men of size.

The jeans are from Old Navy. Yes, in case you have been under a rock. Old Navy has some options for men of size.

The sneakers are from Bad Rhino.

Bad Rhino On The Curb!

The Gentlemen’s Curb is a blog that speaks for men of size. The Gentlemen’s Curb tries to bring fashion and lifestyle options. As most men of size know, finding the clothes can be a chore. I realize that shopping shouldn’t be difficult because of our sizes. Big and tall, plus male, brawn fashion is a growing industry. Most brands that cater to men of size have a lot of older designs.  Big men don’t have to dress plainly! We need some diversity! There aren’t many brands that speak for us, but when a brand is found we have to tell the world.

big and tall, big and tall blogger, brawn, brawn blogger, plus male, plus male blogger

Bad Rhino is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands. They are one of the few brands that understand the view of men of size. I love to wear “hoodies,” they are probably one of my favorite articles of clothing. But, I can’t wear them all of the time! Bad Rhino makes sure that there are clothing options available for every occasion.

Brooklyn is my place of birth and as a blogger I want to give the viewers some level of authenticity. I had to make sure that I am transparent with my readers. Bad Rhino definitely gets my stamp of approval. But, please remember that Bad Rhino is affordable and available up to size 6x!! The Bad Rhino Navy Reefer coat is one of my favorites! I also love the detail of the sweater. The design is intricate too! The Navy Crew Neck is guaranteed to get you second looks and keep you warm. It’s difficult to find shoes for us shoes in our size. Bad Rhino has some options, check out the brogues.

Too Big For What?

Can a person over 300 pounds do calisthenics? Can a man of size do calisthenics? Can brawn men, big and men and plus men do pull-ups? When I first started to make some changes in my life, I was met with resistance. It started watching a video of some men performing calisthenics on a pull-up bar. I was intrigued! I was impressed. I marveled the way the men and women seemed to suspend their bodies in the air, I marveled at the way the moved their bodies so effortlessly. I felt it would be a great change for me to start working out in the park, instead of all the attention and “coaching” I received in the gym.

Kavah King of The Gentlemen’s Curb

Go Hard Or Go Home.

So the next day, I got my water, I made sure my phone was charged and I walked to the nearest park with fitness apparatuses. I started stretching, I turned my music up and started to work. Well, at least what I thought was work! I tried to perform a pull-up and I couldn’t! I was met with snickers from the other men that worked out in the park. A few of them said to me “big guys like you don’t come out here.” “You should go to the gym.” I felt defeated and I decided to head home. The next day I had a long talk with myself. I charged myself with the thought process that you have to crawl before you walk.

I began with a process that helped my pull-up process, you can review the post here: Too Big For What?Too Big For What Pull-Up 102, and Too Big For What Pull-Up 103.

For all of our readers, your goals aren’t unattainable. We are all at the point where we have to crawl again. When we were born we got a lot of bumps and bruises trying to walk. In life, we are faced with those challenges in our lives. Let’s work, it isn’t going to be easy. Let’s inspire and motivate each other.

I love fashion. I am always looking for companies and brands that cater to men of size. I have a responsibility to let others know where to purchase fashionable clothing and suggest outlets to my readers. With that in mind, as soon as I find out some details about a brand that caters to big and tall/brawn/ plus men, I have to share with my readers. I do my best to provide options and provide reviews so that everyone benefits.
A friend and fellow blogger Marcy of Fearlessly Me asked me if I were aware of a brand called Bad Rhino I let her know that I heard some things about the brand, but I hadn’t ordered any clothing from them. I liked what I saw and decided to give them a shot to give them a shot. (After I saw some of the selections, I had to call Marcy and thank her!)

Why is Bad Rhino the best-kept fashion secret for men of size?
Details. I am a fan of denim. I try to wear denim as much as possible. As we already know, because of my size I can’t purchase clothing from certain brands. In some cases,I am limited with my options. Not with Bad Rhino. I have been having difficulty finding distressed jeans that would look right on me. (I tried making some jeans look distressed myself, but I made the holes in the jeans too big and it looked absolutely crazy.) Bad Rhino fixed that problem.

As of  late bomber jackets have returned  and it has been a bit difficult to find the size that would give me the perfect look. I didn’t want the bomber jacket to be too snug, I can’t be seen with clothing that can fit my baby nephew.
Let’s be honest, I was pleasantly surprised with the denim. I love the feel of the denim, the denim has a great cut. There wasn’t extra room in the groin area, Bad Rhino is one of the few big and tall brands that make sure that they aren’t your grandfather’s clothing line. Bad Rhino has an assortment of clothing, that can fit any occasion. They even carry footwear in larger sizes. I am sold on their denim collection, I am a denim fanatic and they are have been placed in the “Curb Collection.”

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?

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 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?
