What Is #BaeWalks?

A lot of awareness is being raised about body positivity. The truth is that the body positivity issue isn’t something that only women face. A lot of men of size have issues with their bodies and have to face negative stereotypes about being a person of size. Little by little things are starting to change. This year, we have seen a lot of clothing brands begin to cater to men of size. To be truthful, it’s a very exciting time! For years men of size have been forced to deal with a uniform look. This year at Full Figured Fashion Week, we witnessed something groundbreaking. Gwen Devoe and her hard working staff put together a fashion show showcasing clothing companies that cater to men of size! It was phenomenal! The event was sponsored by Mo Vaughn’s MVP Collections and consisted of SOS Denim and The Brandon Kyle Collection. Doesn’t that sound amazing?! The irony was that I could hardly breathe during the fashion show.

I was humbled and honored to participate in the “Bae Walks” fashion show! But, I was nervous. I kept thinking the craziest things! “What if I trip over my shoelaces?”  I thought. “What if the light reflects from my forehead and blinds the audience?” I know that I am exaggerating, but it felt as if my heart was lodged in my throat. I wasn’t nervous before the event, but when it came close to show time, the feelings were uncontrollable. I was nervous, but being nervous is no reason to quit or back out in any way. So, this forehead and I pushed through! The audience was receptive to all of the models involved. Special thanks to the audience, they made us feel very welcomed! I am happy that I had the opportunity to push for body advocacy. #BaeWalks ended up being a great event.

These brands showcased contemporary fashion for men of size. If you identify as a brawn, big and tall or a plus male. The clothing definitely fits you. The styles are diverse and can fit any occasion. I am honestly impressed. I enjoyed the camaraderie with the other models and I appreciate the support and encouragement from everyone male and female alike. There were great strides that were made for the #bodypositivitycause and I am happy to be a part. Much respect to Gwen Devoe and the Full Figured Fashion Week team.

Summer Time in New York City!

The weather in New York City has no been the greatest for me. I am a man that loves the heat! I can’t wait until summer hits. But, it’s like summer is taking forever. I can’t wait to carry a towel that matches my outfit. I am sure all men of size can relate to that! Towels are definitely a necessity! On those summer days that we crave, it isn’t uncommon to find an abandoned building and reminisce with friends in New York City. Those are some of the best times in my life.

Olive?

It’s hard to believe that I am in olive. I thought I would look like a huge ninja turtle. Yes, as of late I am venturing into new colors. I know many other men of size can definitely relate to being restricted when it comes to wearing different colors. The weather is changing and I represent for all men of size that it’s perfectly fine to wear colors that are out of our “norm.” The weather in NYC has been weird. The weather feels like fall still. But, on one day the weather finally felt as if spring is coming!

I had some errands to run, but I was excited! I am not going to lie, I wanted to be seen! It sounds vain, but that wasn’t the case. I finally felt confident trying something different! Except for the boots! I needed something familiar. So, I paired the look with a popular look from my city. (I know some of my readers are chuckling because its like I can’t stay away from them. I am truly a product of my city.)

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?

Kavah King for The Gentlemen’s Curb

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.

I  am doing my best to break the “rules.” And I hope that I can provide inspirations for others to do the same.  Your size shouldn’t​ restrict you to certain colors.

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.

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.

We need more options! Plus male/Big and Tall/Brawn clothing options that are needed. The Brandon Kyle menswear collection is one of the brands that are filling the void. Brandon Kyle is a designer that caters to men of size. In a time where men of size are being excluded by many designers and clothing companies, there are a few that decided to step outside of the box. When Brandon Kyle called me and asked me to sample some clothing from the denim collection, I jumped at the opportunity.

I was asked to sample the duster from the denim collection. To be honest, initially, I had some reservations about the duster. I did some research. I searched images on Google and I still wasn’t thoroughly sold. I didn’t think that a duster would look amazing on a man of size. After putting the reservation behind me, I got dressed.

Kavah King for Gentlemen’s Curb

The duster and the denim cargo was a great combination. I was on my way to a happy hour on a rainy day in Brooklyn, New York. (One of the best cities in the world, arguably the best. Pardon me if my perspective seems biased.) I threw on a blue hoodie that matched with the denim. It ended up looking great. The combination is definitely progressive!

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.

Gentlemen’s Curb On The Runway-GentlemensCurb Plus Male Blogger

In Fashion In A BIG Way

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!
