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.

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!

On Saturday, January 28th, 2017, I had the opportunity to model for a line designed with the big and tall/plus male and the brawn man in mind. I am still speechless! I would have never thought in a million years that I would be on anyone’s runway. When I first started blogging, I just wanted to be a voice for men of size. I wanted to help men and encourage those men of size that are going through similar circumstances as myself. I had the first opportunity to model for Brandon Kyle Menswear, I didn’t think that I would be modeling again.

I am extremely thankful for the opportunity. I see myself as a blogger for men of size. So, when situations arise where I can model, I am extremely nervous. The venue was full to capacity, which added to my nervousness! But, I represented for all those that don’t have a voice. I represented for all of the men of size feel neglected when shopping due to their size. There are opportunities being presented for men of size. Designers and brands that cater specifically to us is a dream come true!! The idea alone is extremely exciting!

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.

Are There Bomber Jackets For Larger Men? Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Blogger

   Bomber Jackets For Big And Tall/Brawn/Plus Males?

Are you a big and tall, a brawn or “plus male?” Then I am sure that you can relate. Recently, I found myself looking for a bomber jacket. After all, there is no such thing as too many jackets in the fall.  As a big and tall man, I went to one of the local stores in my area and asked for their best bomber jacket in the largest size that they carried, a bomber jacket for big and tall men. The sales person handed me the jacket, I walked quickly into the dressing room to try the jacket on. I looked like an overgrown child, rushing into the dressing room. Please don’t judge me! I went into the dressing room, I put the jacket on and I noticed that the sleeves were too short. My wrists were totally exposed. If I had to raise my hand for any reason, I would look like a Bozo. What good would this jacket be if it didn’t cover my wrist? To be honest, I almost purchased the jacket. I mean, I don’t think I need to raise my hands that often in public. I could just keep my arms to my sides, relax and no one would notice. Why is it so difficult to find bomber jackets for big and tall men?

Then I thought, that action would be absolutely foolish. I am a man of size, a 324 lbs man of size would be noticed easily in his little nephew’s jacket. After I debated to myself in the mirror, I realized that if I purchased the jacket I would be a sellout. Why conform? Why should I be excluded in fashion because of my size? I knew in some way I could be accommodated. Then I remembered my good friend and fellow blogger Marcy Cruz of Fearlessly Just Me recommended a company that specializes in clothing for me of size called Bad Rhino.

I found the bomber jacket that I wanted and it is a great fit! I was so excited that I had to call Marcy and personally thank her. I know in my last post, I spoke about the distressed denim, but I tried another set of jeans the slim fit and I love the feel! Bad Rhino’s jeans went perfectly with all black construction Timberland’s. I am from Brooklyn, those boots are so necessary.

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.

Gentlemen's Curb Bad Rhino

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?

 

#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 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?
