This is a submission we received via e-mail from CGS follower Rafael Juarez:

I am not classy, but its cleaned up a bit.

Leather jacket was bought in the Los Angeles fashion district ($50), t-shirt is from LAX ($25), boots are Harley ($150), wallet and chain ($22), bandana ($1), spike bracelet is from Hot Topic ($22). The guitar is an Ibanez RX series.

I don’t know about you, but this guy brings the idea of a rock and roll attitude to a whole new level. You can find his blog here.

EVEN THE 11th DOCTOR LIKES THE IDEA!

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT.

On last night’s episode of GLEE, they addressed the issue of men and  how they are capable of having doubts about their body. This is actually pretty unexpected considering the show, until now, has only really focused on female body image (Lauren Zizes, Mercedes Jones, and Wade Adams) and male body image, to this point, has been essentially a non-issue (not surprising considering “men with chiseled abs” are the ideal “men” in American society and most of the men on GLEE are, well, chiseled).

However, with this recent episode, it seems that Ryan Murphy and the creative team are finally getting around to addressing the problem that is becoming more and more apparent: there are men, in fact, who have doubts and worries about their bodies. And those men should have a voice. Because not every guy is confident about their body and society needs to stop assuming that male body image is a non-issue.*

What are your thoughts on this?

(*However, male body image issues are less of an issue than the standards American society expects from women)


ADVICE: Where can chubby/big guys find cool clothes?

It’s well worth the wait. Here’s some suggestions and insight on options for the chubby/fat/husky/Zach Galifianakis-sized male looking for hip, trendy, and good looking clothes.

Keep it classy.

Today’s planned video is going to have to go on hold due to some unforeseen circumstances. It will happen soon. Scout’s honor. In the meantime, have this gif of an extremely giddy, German actor with a wonderful beard.

JJ ABRAMS EPISODE VII FEELS.

Had to get surgery done this morning and could only do one of the two planned videos I was going to do today. Silver lining? Yes - y’all have another day to give us places you like to shop for the FYI video we’re putting together at Chubby Guy Swag TV (which y’all should subscribe to).

In the meantime, enjoy this video from my personal vlog on YouTube detailing a lot of my feels regarding JJ Abrams taking the reigns of the latest Star Wars entry.

Keep it classy!

New video tomorrow.

Expect a new video tomorrow about where to find clothes if you’re a chubby guy. But I am in no way an all-knowing, omniscient force like the Liam Neeson lion in Narnia. And I would LOVE some help. So if you have any specific places you like to go or you’ve heard about, drop them in our askbox or send us an e-mail via chubbyguyswag@gmail.com. You can also comment on YouTube or send us messages there.

And, as always, send us your questions! Even if we don’t answer it on the blog, we may use it for a video. This is a community. Let’s make it an interactive one in 2013!

Keep it classy!

Heyo!

Height: 6’7, Weight 330, Waist 42 36L

This outfit is comprised of two of my favorite articles of clothing: Cardigan and V-neck. I swear by Target’s Mossimo line of V-neck shirts. They are soft, comfortable and come in a variety of colors, plus they are only $9 or so. The 2X fits me like a dream.

I picked up my cardigan at Old Navy this weekend for about $9. It was on sale, marked down from $25. I LOVE CARDIGANS. It’s like wearing a sweater but for indecisive people. It was a 2X. 

Come say hey!
