This is a safe space for the fashionable men who don't fit into the mass media's image of the "ideal" body type. CGS is dedicated to bringing savvy tips, fashion advice, and sending a signal boost to the fashion industry for an underrepresented demographic.
A common thread in my life over the course of the past few months has been my hair. In fact, on multiple occasions, my hair has been a topic of conversation on Tumblr and elsewhere. Well, now all of you can sport the ZACHESER hairdo with this quick tutorial.
CGS follower bearlyanimating posted this picture today with the simple question, “Or this?" It’s a question that definitely needs to be answered. Personally, I feel it should be a resounding "yes." After all, sweaters are definitely the popular go to this year especially if they sport eclectic patterns and designs like the one above. It’s kind of like the current generation claiming Bill Cosby’s style as their own. And I dig it.
What about you guys? Keep it classy.
In this video, I discuss what I think the parameters for swag are after we received this submission last week. It gets deep. Almost as deep as the lyrics to the classic ballad “Tik Tok” by songbird Ke$ha.
Hi, I’m Johnathan from Manila where the weather gets bipolar, freakin’ hot one minute and crazy wet the next. Here, I’m dressed for battle whichever way the wind blows. Cheers, y’all!
Take a look at this familiar face!
This outfit is super rad for a few reasons. The first is the shirt. Holy crap. It’s based off of a vintage design, it’s in a different language, and it screams throwback. Overall, it’s a wonderful piece that makes this casual get up a little more flash.
Second is the accessories. The watch is bright, bold, and makes a statement. It also helps that the watch matches the rest of his ensemble. His glasses give this outfit an extra dimension of lines. And the hat? The hat is just classic.
Last but not least are the socks. Sure, they’re not everyone’s taste. But for an outfit this cool? Those socks just ramp it up to the next level.
This is certified proof that going bold can make your outfit pretty awesome.
Summer is (almost) officially here!
Do you know what that means?
Beach season. Bright colors. Hats, sunglasses, and not wearing socks with your shoes. Bracelets. Nights out on the town. Nights indoors with your loved ones.
If you don’t have a loved one, at least you have Tumblr.
To sum it all up: IT’S TIME FOR SOME SERIOUS SWAG.
As always, submissions are open and if you’re a guy with style out the hoo-ha, please send us your swag. The CGS community is a welcoming bunch and we’d love to see your class, style, steeze, and level of fresh.
We didn’t know about those origins, but certainly found the information worthy of passing along, and all thanks to Bespoken Clothiers. The company, which bills themselves as “part Sevile Row and part Rock n’ Roll,” like many of our favorites, features a vintage sensibility. In fact, the company emphasizes the combination of old-school quality and modern styles.
Reblog for all my fashionable male followers of the chubby variety.
Attention! Dear Swaggerers!
Another day, another dollar. The fine folks at Chubstr recently came across a wonderful website called Bespoken Clothiers which caters to men of the larger variety. I know that tax season is upon us, so let’s use the refund checks that come for us in the mail for good and not evil. Okay? Okay.
Apparently the fashion industry doesn’t see a demand because female plus size models can be sold on the idea that “curves are sexy” and the same doesn’t apply to men. According to one agency, a plus size male model would just mean “beer gut” and they can’t have that.
Isn’t this blog living proof that there is a demand for plus size male models? That there is a demand for plus size fashion targeted towards men the same way it is for women?
I feel like the people who run “Big Fashion” have some explaining to do. It’s time we hold them accountable. Big props to NY Mag for getting on this.
