Taming the Beast with the Gorilla Killa First Date Kit
This post is sponsored by Gorilla Killa. All opinions, however, are my own.  As a big, hairy guy, I know that grooming and upkeep is vital. If I slack off for a few days, hair starts to grow in places I don’t want it to, and I end up a bit too beastly for my tastes. This is especially...

Where’s the Target Men’s Plus Size Clothing Line?
Earlier this year, Target unveiled Ava & Viv, their new women’s plus size line. It was a big step forward for a company that has been criticized for a lack of stylish clothing in extended sizes. In fact, our friend (and Chubstr Crush alum) Chastity Garner called Target out on their lack of plus size clothing options in...

Get Silky Smooth Stubble with The Soft Goat
Ever had a complaint about your stubble? No? Us either. But the guys at The Soft Goat claim it’s a common complaint gents with a little facial hair receive.

The Only 3 Suits You’ll Need this Spring
Spring is officially here. It’s time to ditch the grey, brown, and patterns suits and focus on navy, khaki and chambray. These are the only 3 big and tall suits you’ll need this season. 1. The Navy Suit Not only is navy the ‘in color’ for Spring, but it’s also the most versatile suit color you...
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!
