Information about Big Fat Flea 2012

If you’re in the NYC area this weekend and you’re looking for clothing, consider attending Big Fat Flea 2012 – an “all-genders fatshion rummage sale for fat folks who like a bargain.” Previously known as Fat Girl Flea, the name has been changed this year to promote (and get) more masculine-spectrum clothing. At the Flea, you’ll find new and vintage clothing in sizes 14 and up for all genders.

This year’s event is being held in a bigger space, and they’ll be bringing in more items, and personal shoppers, which can come in handy for those of you who want style advice or assistance. Tickets are $10 at that door, and that gets you access to a wide variety of clothing, with nothing over $10. If you’re thrifty and you like to create your own unique style, Big Fat Flea is an event you’ll want to attend. All proceeds from the event benefit NOLOSE, a volunteer-run organization dedicated body empowerment.

If you’re in the area and you want to donate clothing, you can do so by dropping it off at the LGBT Center in Manhattan – 208 West 13th Street, NYC on the 3rd floor – Saturday 5/12 between 6-10pm, or Sunday 5/13, between 11-3pm.

Um. So when are y'all gonna launch that chubstr dating site? Hmm? You can't just show us all these men and then whisk them away to handsome land, leaving us to ponder who they are and where they've gone.

That Beard...that smile...dang is it hot in here or is it just me?!? :)

I've shopped old navy and seems like they are one of the only people that try remotely to cater to plus size mens clothing, however i find their jeans fit wonderful through the thigh area but not so much through the legs... i wear a 46 to where the jeans fit they look good, but i have found that the leg area they use too much fabric... even when I've tried their slim & skinny jeans. I just wish that they would test more and try making them look more tailored, without them being to tight or to big through the leg. I feel like a lot of stores really don't pay attention to this side of the size spectrum, probably because it costs them money. You don't see very many extended sizes in store for some reason and what you do find a lot of the time is over sized generic clothing basically drapes which seems like they guessed at what the size it might look like. Although stores like Casual Male XL has decent clothing... and you can find most extended sizes, its completely over priced, and since I'm young i do feel like they don't have styles current with younger generations, feel sorta like shopping with my dad. Although  it might seem like I'm bitter, not gonna lie kinda am I'll take what i can get and make it work, just wish some of these companies would pay us big guys and gals a little more attention and give us something stylish current and with a great fit!
