Sized Up episode 4 takes us to Detroit, Michigan! There’s a lot going on in the Motor City that you might not realize, so we’re taking a closer look at what the city has to offer when it comes to plus size men’s fashion.
I meet up with The Big Fashion Guy himself, Michael Anthony Spearman to talk about what’s important when shopping for a big and tall suit. We discuss how he found his unique sense of style, and Michael Anthony shares some tips that will help you find the perfect suit for yourself.

After taking in the sights, sounds, and tastes of Detroit, we head downtown to Hot Sam’s, a Detroit menswear institution that has been around for almost 100 years. Owner Tony Stovall started working at the store in the 70’s and bought the business in the early 90’s.
He talks to me about how menswear style has changed over the decades, what kind of suits people are buying today. Tony shows me what Hot Sam’s has available for big guys, and shares some tried and true tips that will help you up your own big and tall style game.
