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: Suspenders 101
One of the questions we get regularly from Chubstr readers is “Can I wear suspenders?” My friend – you are in luck. Suspenders aren’t just for Larry King, your Grandpa, and your financial services provider anymore.

Late last year, we talked about shaving with a straight razor, and though some of you are adventurous, others wanted a cool razor that stood less chance of cutting...
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!
