Saturday Night Lights!

Sometimes we work so hard that all we want to do is have a chilled Saturday night at home, have some drinks at your place, watch TV and relax before you go to sleep. But, sometimes Saturday nights alone can be boring, here are a few ways to get your Saturday nights started the right way.

 

Celebrate Yourself

There’s nothing more interesting than having a party at home by yourself. In fact, you know all the people that are attending, and you like them all! So get a few beers, put some good music on, and put your feet up! 

Get Laughing

At times funds may be too low for a comedy club, so why don’t you put on some Comedy Central, or your favorite comedian’s DVD and have a comedy club from the comfort of your home! If that DVD doesn’t do it for you, you can have a good look online for some fantastic sports related pranks, there also some top foosball memes, and even something like Impractical Jokers is funny enough to take your mind off the woes of the week.

 

Cook!

Sometimes there’s nothing more relaxing than buying a few of your favorite ingredients, putting the radio on, opening a bottle of wine and cooking your favorite meal. Some people find the cooking is too much of a stressful task, but if you get it right, and the food is tasty, it’s worth the effort, and if it’s a dish you know very well, you can go at your own pace and most importantly it’s cost effective.

Online Shopping

You’ve had a long week, so treat yourself to some of your favorite clothes you’ve been spying on. There’s nothing quite like doing late night online browsing with a few drinks and some great tunes. And so what if you buy a few things you regret, just send them back!

 

Get Stuck Into A Book

Saturday night doesn’t have to be about going out, or consuming vast quantities of your favorite beverage, why don’t you just sit back, relax, and finally get stuck into that book you meant to read? You might want to think about opening your mind to a new novel or get into something supremely dense like a Don DeLillo tome.

 

Have The Guys Round

If you don’t like the idea of spending Friday night by yourself, then why don’t you have a few other guys around to your place, get a few beers, some snacks and either watch a movie or, god forbid, talk? If you’ve all had a tough week, you can benefit from decompressing and having a good laugh with the guys.

Sleep

Yes, if it’s been a bad week, you may want to just get your head on your pillows and say goodbye to this week. After all, tomorrow is Sunday, and you’ve got a whole day to get yourself in a good mood. Think about what you want to do tomorrow, so you don’t dwell on the fact that you’ve had a bad week. After a good night’s sleep, you’ll feel like a new person.

Until next time, it’s the Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

We all enter different stages of development during our lives. The turmoil of one year can lead to the next, and prevent us from truly expressing our goals. If this continues for long enough, you might even forget the reason for your intention in the first place. This can be a dangerous place to occupy because as the years pass on, you can become familiar with losing instead of winning. If you’re to be happy and comfortable with yourself, however, you choose to express that, you might need to go back to the drawing board and develop a more wholesome way of experiencing your life.

 

Life difficulties are nothing new. In fact, they can inform and help your future personality in a big, boosted and positive way. We all must go through trials and tribulations, they help define us. However, the lingering effect of difficulty will only hurt if it leaves us bent out of shape. It’s our job to rectify ourselves because there’s nothing more powerful than a person who is able to overcome their personal challenges and move onto something new.

 

The new year is arriving and with that the potential for a completely new story to be crafted. A common phrase you often hear from people who have experienced difficulty and come out the other side is that ‘it made me who I am.’ This is the power of restoring your initial pride and achievement desires; it retroactively helps you define the struggle you once experienced, and be grateful for the process.

Figure Out What’s Important To You

You need a plan, or you’ll likely end up falling into someone else’s. You should never feel guilty about developing your aims, your goals and your life in a direction you most cherish. In fact, without a plan, life can become wishy-washy and unfulfilled. For this reason, becoming a better you requires discipline in planning. Note down everything important to you, from your wants, your needs, your loves and who you hope to impact with this motivational effort.

 

It could be that you have a son or daughter you wish to provide for more completely. It could be that your business idea you know could be a hit is sat in the cobwebs of your mind, when it should be out there making you and your family money. It could be that your body is weak, frail and flabby from lack of exercise, and you’re simply sick of feeling weak all the time. No matter if your motivation is to be successful in your career, social health or physical well being (preferably it’ll be all three,) defining a goal helps you go for it. Plan realistically, on a day by day and week by week basis exactly how you can utilize your free time to achieve that you truly need to achieve.

Another amazing way to facilitate progress, especially if you haven’t had much success with this in the past, is to use the carrot and punishment method. List everything you hope to achieve, and everything you’d do if you treat yourself as someone you loved. Write your perspective on how great life could be if you kept this up for five years. Then, write down all of your vices, and how life could look if you indulged in them for the next five years. This will generate a ‘heaven’ and ‘hell’ scenario in your mind, something to run to and run away from. This helps progress more than any other because both positive and negative sides of your motivation are contributing to the same goal you are hoping to achieve.

 

Get To The Gym

 

Your gym workouts are important to get right. They help you look good and become healthier yes, but they work on a much deeper level than that too. Working out in the morning a few days a week helps you get over that initial hump of a challenge. This can translate into confidence, sharpness and perspective during your day. The added difficulty of a morning workout can also help your mind focus on something other than your life issues, or achievements you need to perfect.

 

One of the best things about heading to the gym, particular weightlifting, is that you aren’t able to fool it. While you may be able to convince yourself that your plans are flexible because you feel lethargic today, or you have to head to the bar for a good social life, heading to the gym sheds all illusions. A 200lb bar squat will always be a 200lb bar squat, and no amount of negotiation will change the effort it takes to lift it. This helps put you in that ‘no-BS’ mode which is intrinsically important to keep if you’re to achieve anything in this life.

 

The gym is much more than a physical remedy. It can be a spiritual training tool if you focus on it right, and optimize all progress around it. If nothing else, setting yourself in a solid routine aside from your job will help you manage your free time to a much better degree. The energy you receive from getting in shape will fuel all of your exploits from now on, to the point where you’ll question how you lived without it.

Equip Yourself

 

To take care of both of these previous tidbits of advice, you’ll need to equip yourself well. Purchase stationary and a yearly planner. A diary will help you track your progress from all avenues of your goals. Make a ‘tracker wall’ which details your progress, your plans, your appointments and your need to celebrate success.

Purchase more suitable gym attire, ones which help you feel like a powerful beast when working out and placing down the revolutionary effort you are lucky enough to express. If distracting people impede your progress and you no longer need their toxicity, change your phone number, temporarily suspend your Facebook and social media accounts for clarity, and focus on your goals. This ‘cocoon’ mode can help any man with the singular focus it takes to become the person they want to be.

 

Before long, and in a matter of months, you are likely to experience a resurgence in your motivation, happiness, and pride. The best part of it all? It will all be down to you.

Until next time, it’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion and fitness meet in a BIG way.

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.

Big And Healthy? Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Blogger

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.

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.

New Years Eve With Argyleculture and JCPenney

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.

Argyleculture and JCPenney

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. Any questions, comments or feedback contact: kavah.king@gentlemenscurb.com Until next time!

Happy Monday! Many people see Mondays as dreadful because the work week starts again. Not me! I would rather take another Monday than a coffin! There were a lot of good vibes this weekend and later on you will see all of the work that we are doing. I was told that I look like a Chippendale’s dancer in this look. But, we are moving forward! Most big men would rather a nice sweatshirt and some shirts and preferably some very comfortable footwear. Not today!

I was not aware that being inspired by fall fashion, would result in me receiving comments that I look like a Chippendale dancer! (Well, I am behind on some school loans, so if someone has a hook up.) I mean maybe they need a big and tall dancer! LOL! Kenneth Cole is one of the designers that I love that cater to the size of my feet. A lot of shoes for men with big feet are extremely plain. Ordinary. Kenneth Cole is one of the companies that push the envelope in terms of fashion.

The socks are from Tulliani, which is a brand of socks that cater to men with larger feet. (The socks are amazing and very comfortable.) The shirt is from Old Navy’s big and tall section.  (Yes, it’s pink)

Ghili is a man of size, but has more of a slender build. So, he definitely fits in the curb! We went to the Park Slope section of Brooklyn and let Ghili put in some work. Ghili provides a different perspective for the big and tall male. The frame is slightly different, but the basis is still the same. We want to add some diversity on the blog site, as we step forward we hope that you will grow with us.IMG_8176

Thoughts On The ‘Curb

In Fitness In A BIG Way

Kavah

Because of my size, at times there is an audience when I try to work out in the gym. Now, some people may feel as if they would like an audience. They may feel like it motivates them to push harder. However, speaking for myself I do not like an audience. Or the comments “you usually don’t see big men on the bar.” Or the comments before I pull up “you need to use weights.” Or being teased when I run or do any type of cardiovascular exercises. (Yes, I hear jokes when I run. But, I can’t let them stop me.) Then there are those who watch your entire workout and want to give unnecessary pointers. We both looked at the same YouTube channel. We both saw the same videos and received the same information. Don’t recite the information you recently saw to try and sound like an expert. Our body structures are clearly different. We can tell you focus on your abdominal muscles.

Kavah 4

It’s assumed that I am too heavy to do certain exercises. Believe it or not, I am not concerned with the opinions of others. I would rather simply to work out in peace. So, after dark I try to go to a playground with the apparatuses for calisthenics.
I try and work out with out the watchful eye of the naysayers, the critics, the hecklers and the experts. I am a lot more focused alone when I work out.

Kavah 3

So on occasion I head to the playground after dark to be alone. So my “big ass” can do pull ups on the bar. (There are many scaffolds in Brooklyn at this point. Many companies are trying to build and capitalize on the “change” that Brooklyn is going through. One person told me “get off the bar before you pull the whole building down.” #HowSway)

Kavah 2

Even the police stop me and question if I am participating in illegal activities. No, Mr. officer, I am just trying to lose weight. I know I can look intimidating at times, but presently I am trying to strengthen my heart, my body and my mind. The purpose of this post is to inspire all those like my self that can relate in some shape form or fashion. Don’t stop the fight! Thanks for stopping by the ‘curb, I hope you enjoy your stay!

Corduroy Curb Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Blogger

In Fashion In A BIG Way

Kavah King

I had the opportunity to travel to Boston I wanted to look casual, because I had dinner reservations later on that evening. I wouldn’t have time to head to the hotel to change, so I wore something that could serve two purposes.

I don’t want a polished look all of the time. But, I want to be comfortable and have a casual look. I don’t always want to wear a tie, blazer or a cardigan.

You want an outfit that you can wear at work and you want to be able to attend a happy hour or a brunch. Or even to watch your favorite team play.

Kavah King

We stopped in the mall to snap a few photos and I thought I am not the only gentleman that goes through this!

The latest look from the Gentlemen’s Curb is a simple corduroy blazer. The corduroy blazer is durable enough to with stand temperature on nights where it is a bit chilly, but you don’t want the hassle of carrying a jacket. The lining of the blazer is enough to keep you warm of course depending on the temperature.

Since the Notorious B.I.G. wore a “red and black lumberjack with a hat to match,” I have been a fan of plaid patterns. I always liked the pattern and the combination of plaid, so when plaid fits..I take the chance! Plaid patterns are very diverse and usually there are more than two colors. it is easier to create an ensemble that speaks to you.

The khakis on the other hand are a lot thinner than the jacket.

They don’t wrinkle as often and they are suitable for the office or your favorite lounge. They aren’t too loose and aren’t too snug and still give a Brooklyn feel.

I am from Brooklyn, New York. At times Timberland’s boots are so necessary. They are hiking boots, but they subtly represent New York. For as long as I can remember Timberland’s have been a standard in New York. So, in appropriate Brooklyn fashion

The ensemble is affordable and will make you feel relaxed and prepared for both 9-5’s! Thanks for stopping by the curb!
