Book Review: Beard, By Matthew Rainwaters
In reviewing Beard by Matthew Rainwaters, I was reminded of a few important things: I should never have shaved that extra 3 inches off my beard before Thanksgiving. Every guy should grow interesting facial hair at least once in his life. Competitive bearding is very serious business. Beard chronicles this final point through first hand accounts...

Icons of Men’s Style Shows You How it All Began
Instead of focusing on famous and stylish men of the past century, Icons of Men’s Style is a surprisingly informative and engaging book that covers the rich and storied history of men’s basic fashion staples in an almost encyclopedic manner.  Filled with little-known details, plenty of historic photos, and a rich history of each garment,...

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"
