Every month there is a new magazine with the newest diet rage (which is usually unhealthy), photos of what women are “supposed” to look like, & yet nothing about taking care of your body from the inside out. So many women (& men) nearly kill ourselves to attain some sort of ideal of “beauty” because we are told that’s what you do. Everywhere you go- tv, radio, billboards, etc.-we are bombarded with how to “lose weight quick” without fixing the real issues. Yet, women like me, (& countless others) who actually know what it’s like to love yourself (most days) get ridiculed for being confident AND over a size 16,18,20. Heaven forbid anyone that isn’t fit for the pages of a “mainstream” magazine have any opinion on how important it is to take care of your mind AND body. All of my role models might not seem like the healthiest people on the outside, but they have it together on the inside. They know what it’s like to actually love themselves and love life, in whatever form that means. I would much rather see that everywhere I turn instead of someone who thinks you can take a diet pill & slap lipstick on to fix a problem.. but that’s just me.
In this episode of Chubby Guy Swag TV, I discussed healthiness. Someone sent in a message to our inbox regarding our lack of addressing healthy behaviors on the blog and I felt like it was too important to put on the back burner. So I was compelled to make a video.
This is an e-mail submission we received from a CGS follower in Malaysia:
Greetings Zach and Abigail.
I’m Ilyas from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and I stumbled upon your blog while I was at work. It’s a superb one, not to mention that it’s the only one where plus-size men are the models. Screw Zoolander and his minions.
Here are some photos of me and I hope its good enough to be in the blog.
Help Needed - Project About Misrepresentation in Popular Media
I’m currently starting a project at University were we are asked to make an archive/collection book, and I am making my book on the subject of Characters We Want To See In Film/TV/Comics etc (That Do Not Get The Representation They Deserve)
Representation of people of more varying body types is one of the things that I am looking into, since I know it’s a big issue in Hollywood.
I’m collecting quotes from people what they think need to change in the film industry, and what kind of stories and characters they want see that I am then going to assemble into a book on why a wider inclusion is important. The book will be available online as a free PDF when it’s finished.
I’m sure the followers of this blog has alot to say about this, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
If you wish to help, you can either leave a comment on the original post HERE or send me an ask HERE.
I was wondering where the guys on here get flannels, im 5'11/6feet and around 280, size 2x and the only place with flannels that fit me well is walmart but i think i have all theirs haha.
HB clothing recently gave Zach a flannel shirt that he raves about all the time. (hbclothingcompany.com)
This was taken during my B2B set with DJ Dirty Panda last night at Dock Street in downtown Annapolis.
This will be the last one of the day. I promise. I wanted to highlight Perry Galloway who goes by the moniker of DJ Dirty Panda. He knows a lot about style, he’s really cool, and he helps me out with a ton of stuff. And is that an OBEY t-shirt? Yeah. It is.

Pattern explosion! Though I’ve long been all about solids, I’ve started dabbling in patterns in the last year or so and here I’ve mashed 4 (5 if you count the cap) all into one outfit. Given that the most extreme pattern is the gingham on the dress shirt, this is nothing radical, but still a bit jarring in a way I enjoy. Sorry for the moray pattern on the dress shirt. One of the perils of checks. Its not on the full versions.
