Is there any piece of clothing or accessory you couldn’t do without?
This summer, I have a feeling it’s going to be between a pair of tan sanuks and a jean vest.
Do you have a style tip that works for you that you’d like to share with us?
Money is not an option, or so they say. Well, let’s be honest, for most consumers in this economy it is. But money does not have to be the defining factor in the creating or refining of your look. Take a thrifting trip to the Goodwill and sift through the piles of sometimes dusty, oddly categorized material. Run to the back of your favorite store and search through the clearance rack. Believe it or not, quality isn’t always costly.
Thanks Good To know!! My Son who is 15, 6ft tall at 300lbs doesn't like to go shopping cause of all the trouble we have finding him clothes. Even going shoe shopping is a chore. I buy his shoes online and pray they fit right, cause where I live the biggest shoe size any store carries is a 13. I'm glad he is not picky and doesn't care about named brand clothing.
@debrod75 If there's anything we can do to help you find your Son clothes, don't hesitate to reach out!
Target has almost nothing to fit us Plus Sized guys! I hate having to go to Walmart - but they have clothes that fit!
I'd volunteer! I'm 6'2 390 I'm a truly plus sized man! I'd be up for the challenge \U0001f60c\U0001f60a
Agreed, Gary! Our hope is that companies will see these things and feature more models of a variety of sizes.
You're right Jakob Gustav Felts, and it's something Zach touches on in the article. It's a first step, and before this, there wasn't ANYTHING in the way of male size diversity to be found there. It's our job to spotlight things like this and show these companies that we want even more models of a variety of sizes to be featured on their site and in their advertising!
I'm glad Target is making the effort, but the fact of the matter is, most guys looking for plus sized clothing don't have the slender build that he does. -_-
