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!

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.

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!

Welcome back to the Gentlemen’s Curb! I apologize for my absence but I had some family issues and occurrences that I need to attend to. I am like most of you, I do my best to put my family first. So, these things without going into detail, slowed me down just a bit. But, I am back to represent for all men of size.

By now, everyone knows that I love of hoodie. I am sure most big and tall, brawn, and plus males feel the same way. I had it my way, I would wear a hoodie anytime that I can. For a lot of men of size, there is a standard. Most of us love hoodies! As a matter of fact, a hooded sweatshirt, a pair of jeans and a pair of sneakers are the thing that I can wear all of the time!

As many of you know, I am a resident of New York City. The borough of Brooklyn to be exact. But, Lower Manhattan has some great scenery, so I decided to take ASOS with me! The Puma hoodie is a great staple in my hoodie collection. They carry a size 4x and midsection of the hoodie is elongated. So, the hoodie won’t rise up as you walk, or if you have a book bag it won’t rise up and show your backside. (This happens to me every now and then and I cant be the only one!)

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.

The denim collection is dope! You can find your exact style and trust me they have your style! On some days I prefer the tapered look, but today I decided to go with the straight cut.

Man Of Size In ‘Man’hattan!

As a man of size, I know most of us can relate. Sometimes we don’t feel like dressing up! Give us a pair of shorts and a graphic t-shirt and we are good to go!  Some days, I am not in the mood for an oxford shirt. I don’t want cuff links, no lapels either! I wear a size 15 shoe, so I know that men that share a similar size can relate. We want our feet to be comfortable and all shoes are not comfortable for us! Wait, give us a hooded sweatshirt a comfortable pair of jeans and it’s a celebration!

Here Are Some Alternatives:

A man has should look presentable at all times. Especially a man of size! I purchased a corduroy blazer from Old Navy. Yes, Old Navy carries clothing for all big and tall, brawn and plus males. Give their big and tall selection a look.  I love the look and the color and felt it gave me a distinguished look without trying too hard.

I wore a black oxford shirt with the blazer. I am a huge fan of the color combination of brown and black. So, I thought about it and decided that no other color would give it the right look for me. Bad Rhino is the brand that I sought out to complete this task. They have PLENTY of options for men of size.

The denim is Old Navy’s slim fit. They are making some serious accommodations for men of size and I greatly appreciate it! Too many brands over look men of size, so when a brand makes changes for us, there is a celebration.

The shoes are from Steve Madden. If you are above a size 15 shoe, Steve Madden has some options for you.

Enter: KingSize Direct Part 2

In Fashion In A BIG Way

Greetings! I hope all is well with you and your families!! I have been going through some personal issues, but the work doesn’t stop! We still have a commitment to inform our viewership of all things related to men of size. The plus male, brawn and big and tall community has difficulty finding the right clothes. To our viewers who aren’t aware, it’s an absolute chore to find clothes. But, King Size Direct  has made it a one stop shop for all men of size. From formal wear to casual wear, there are clothes available. King Size also offers athletic wear, which I have grown to become very curious about.  We may revisit that at another time. I have some more news about King Size Direct’s offerings. We showcased some of the jewelry, now we are showcasing the fashion.

I am from Brooklyn, New York. Which is also called the county of kings, so it’s only right that we use some of the borough’s landscape. I am biased to my borough and King Size is becoming one of my favorite brands. So, I had to merge both of them. I love the flannel collection! There are many colors that can fit ANY mood. We don’t wear button-downs and blazers all of the time. On the days that we don’t, flannel will do!

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!

Scott Bayliss Interview

In Fashion In A BIG Way

scott-bayliss

There is always excitement when a brand launches a clothing line for men of size. There are limited fashionable choices for big and tall, “brawn” men and plus size men. When we find out more options are available, some of us treat it as a celebration. Recently, the clothing brand Asos launched their big and tall men’s wear collection.

Scott Bayliss - Gentlemen's Curb Plus Male Blogger

With Asos’ launch, the world was introduced to entrepreneur/model/actor Scott Bayliss! The Gentlemen’s Curb had an awesome opportunity to converse with Scott, whose talents are now being recognized around the WORLD. Please read the interview below:

     1.Where are you from? 

I am from Bristol in the UK, 118 miles drive from London.

2. If you don’t mind sharing with the readers, what is your height? What are your clothing sizes and measurements?

I am 6ft5 ½

XL- T-Shirt, XXL Jacket

Neck- 17 ½ inch

Chest- 48 inch

Sleeve- 39 inch

Gloves 9.75/xxl

Shoes- 14 inch

Belts- 40 inch

Waist- 40 inch

Inseam- 38 inch

Seat/Hips- 41 inch

106552-a1477924427634-1

    3. How long have you modelled? 

Literally a month!

The good people at Asos spotted me at a music festival in Bristol.

I was asked to do a couple test shoots with them before they made a firm commitment.

A good friend has also started up his own clothing label ‘Visionary’ so I was asked to do some modelling for him also.

    4. How long have you been acting? What is it about acting that draws you to it? 

Acting has always been my passion from an early age.

I graduated university in 2014; ever since then I have been performing with my theatre company ‘Propolis Theatre’ all over the UK which culminated in us performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016.

I also have been working with the Bristol Old Vic Theatre performing and leading workshops and at the same time doing my own freelance acting work.

I would say the thing that draws me to acting is that I get to represent real life. There are a lot of problems in the world today and especially as a theatre maker it is our job to shed a light on things unseen; while also it’s something that I find enjoyable!

  1. How does it feel to represent men of size in the fashion world? 

It’s something that I feel really humbled by.

I believe all people should be represented, as it gives inspiration to all. We are not all the same and that needs to be celebrated because the diversity in this world is something to admire which rarely gets the attention it deserves.

I’ve been getting a lot of love on social media recently from all over the world which has been amazing!

I feel like that’s the biggest thing we as people need to do is support one another.

This is a situation I never thought I would be in and for me to receive so much support is empowering me to do better and for the people supporting its empowering for them to see me representing men of size in the fashion world.

So it’s an ongoing process of support an empowerment which is brilliant!

  1. In your opinion, do men of size have enough representation in mainstream media?

No I don’t feel we do but I do think it’s on the rise! If we do get more representation, people will be more accepting to different body types within the media and in general. It’s definitely growing and to be a part of it is a surreal experience.

It definitely helps having a big company like Asos supporting plus size models now, and I’m sure it won’t be the only one.

  1. Was modelling something that you planned on doing? Or did you stumble on it? 

Literally something I stumbled across.

As I said I was spotted by Asos at a music festival in Bristol, with no intention of going into that industry.

People have always told me have I ever thought about doing modelling and of course doing acting sometimes the two worlds collide but I never thought I would be where I am today.

It shows that anything is possible if you keep an open mind and your willing to learn you can achieve things you never thought were possible.

  1. What’s a day in the life of a model?

The only thing that’s really changed in my life now is social media.

I’ve been live on the Asos website for a week now and like I’ve said I’ve been getting a lot of support and love which is great!

But other than that, I’m still the same person I’ve always been, for me it’s important to stay grounded, I’m lucky to have family friends around me that help do that.

2016 has been a great year but now it’s time to progress and go even harder in 2017!
