Bruce Sturgell ChubstrEarlier in the year I was chosen as one of 417 Magazine’s best dressed of 2012. There was a photo shoot for the magazine, and a month full of excitement culminating with a fashion show that featured a bunch of real models and the best dressed folks. Here’s a photo they snapped of me on the catwalk. I can tell you that being a plus size male model, if only for a night, was a lot of fun. I think we’ll see more of this in the future, from a variety of bigger gents.

Thanks for being such a fantastic guest Bruce!!!

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!
