The Well-Rounded Gent: Treat Yo Self
As guys, we don’t always take the time to indulge. Sure, we’ll enjoy a great beer from time to time, or sink our teeth into an aged prime cut of beef, but what do we REALLY do to relax our bodies and minds to remind ourselves we’re worthy of awesome things? Whether you’ve seen the...

The Well-Rounded Gent: Hands On With the Dreadnought Shavette
We’ve previously discussed what a pain shaving can be. Many of us shave because we have to, not because we want to. We generally don’t enjoy it, and considering a guy will spend almost 6 months of his life shaving, it makes sense to make that time as pleasant as possible. This is one reason...

Bare is Better: When to Go Sockless
To sock, or not to sock, that's one of life's age old questions. Well, maybe not age old, but it's topic of conversation when summer rolls around. The problem is, generally speaking, wearing shoes without socks is just plain uncomfortable. You're worrying about rubbing, blisters, and the dreaded smell. We've put together a list of do's...

The Well-Rounded Gent: Kellan Apparel Gives You Luxury Socks With Style
There aren’t a ton of companies out there doing interesting things with socks, so when we came across Kellan Apparel, we had to share. Though they’re a streetwear brand designed and operated by snowboarders, you don’t have to be one to enjoy their products. The socks, made with high quality cotton, are created to stand...
anthonymg Same here. Sizes run the spectrum since they're not universal, so sometimes a 42 fits and sometimes a 46 fits. I feel you on being on the line - you can't go to a lot of the mainstream stores and find what you're looking for, but you also can't find the styles you want at B&T unless you really search. Have you checked out or Both offer sizes to something like 60 waist and 5X shirts with styles from well known brands. I've been really happy with what I'm finding at those places. Hope this helps!
Very handsome.

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"
