Have you seen the article over at The Guardian about the current landscape of plus size men’s fashion? It’s a solid overview of some of the brands, models, challenges and questions many people are asking about the relevance of this new and growing industry, especially in the UK.
Writer Stephen Moss, a bigger gent himself, spoke with a variety of people in the know, such as John Mooney, brand creative director at Asos, model Nemar Parchment and Charlotte Griffiths at UK modeling agency, Bridge. Moss even spoke with me for the article.
The consensus from everyone featured in the article is that we’re seeing progress. I agree. In addition to ASOS, brands like Target are hopping into the fray with stylish big and tall options to 5X. Independent designers like Oublier and Brandon Kyle Collection are putting a focus on fashion, and clothing lines like Mo Vaughn’s MVP Collections understands that big guys want great looking clothes that fit them well.
That said, there’s still a long way to go. In the end, Moss realized that finding cool clothes when you’re a fat guy still takes work. It’s not something everyone is willing to do. In the coming months and years we can expect to see more brands hop on the plus size bandwagon. I, for one, can’t wait.
