Big Gay Ice Cream, New York, NY

Big Gay Ice Cream began in the summer of 2009 selling soft serve to hungry New Yorkers from their ice cream truck. Today they not only serve sweets from the truck, but also from their permanent location at 125 East 7th Street between 1st Avenue and Avenue A. At BGIC, you’ll find tasty, unusual and creative concoctions, such as the Salty Pimp (vanilla ice cream, dulce de leche, sea salt, and chocolate dip), the ginger curry shake, and a variety of rotating flavors, such as beet soft serve.
Try the Salty Pimp at Big Gay Ice Cream
That’s just the tip of the iceberg – you can add toppings like olive oil and sea salt, cardamom, or wasabi pea dust in order to create whatever sort of beastly concoction you’re in the mood for, or you can let the good folks at Big Gay Ice Cream suggest a treat for you. Follow them on twitter @Biggayicecream or on Facebook.

These Converse Jack Purcell Twill Sneakers would be so easy for my fiance to wear, no matching to outfits required!

anthonymg Same here. Sizes run the spectrum since they're not universal, so sometimes a 42 fits and sometimes a 46 fits. I feel you on being on the line - you can't go to a lot of the mainstream stores and find what you're looking for, but you also can't find the styles you want at B&T unless you really search. Have you checked out Nordstrom.com or Macys.com? Both offer sizes to something like 60 waist and 5X shirts with styles from well known brands. I've been really happy with what I'm finding at those places. Hope this helps!

Chubstr,  I find that Sizes vs fitment to be wide open when it comes to clothes for my body type.  I am 6'3" 320lbs  Which for my style ends up being a 40"x32" waist slim fit,low rise jean and anything from a 2XLT to a 4X depending on the cut of the shirt.  See the problem a guy like me has is what I call the "in-betweener"  I can't shop at most normal stores because everything is "FAT man in a little shirt" and then stepping into a Big and tall store (read: Conservative and Frumpy) and I'm the guy that is now tall enough, but not wide enough. Destination XL has done a good job re-branding themselves with more fashionable clothes, but they still are not fashion forward enough for me.

anthonymg Thanks for the comment Anthony! If you can tell us what your sizes are, we can point you in the right direction. We definitely try to feature clothing in sizes as large as we can find them available, but sometimes they are difficult to find. You'll see a lot of options on the site that go to 5X or 6X. This particular post is a reader photo submission, so this guy has shared specifically what he's wearing and where he got it, which isn't always available in every size. Since it's a reader photo submission, the clothing is based on the size of the gent in the photo. Hope this helps! Check out our resources section and feel free to tell us your sizes and what specifically you're looking for and we'll help you out. Thanks for checking out Chubstr!

Werd!  6'3" 320lbs seems to be to big for most of the fashion that I am finding here.  To big, yet to small for "Big and Tall"

You are an absolute hottie!
