If you’re not familiar with the site, it has a pretty specific focus on how people create and cultivate their style. Isaiah has interviewed much more interesting people than me, and I highly recommend you taking a look...

Photo: My Little Friend and I
Instead of a reader submitted photo, I wanted to share this photo of my Son and I from a recent holiday photo shoot we did with Sarah Carter. She always gets amazing shots and didn’t disappoint this time around. Find out how to recreate the look below. Recreate This Look: Big & Tall Pea Coat:...

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!
