The Lounge: Fly For The Heavy-Set Guy

Prev1 of 9

Feel free to follow me @GQ_Blu

When most people think of fashion they probably have a very distinct image in their head. It’s probably of a model with a fabulous physique with rippling muscles, or really skinny European women who could use a gravy IV to pump some sustenance into their bag of bone frames. What you probably don’t think about are the bigger guys and girls out there. It’s true that the clothing industry isn’t too embracing of our heaver brothas and sistas. Although the idea of plus size is slowly being accepted for women (Hi Tocarra) the fellas are still being left out of the conversation when it comes to sartorial matters.

Although I myself am on the slim side, GQ Blu still believes in inclusion, so this edition of The Lounge is dedicated to my larger than life homies in the struggle who the runways and magazines may have shunned. Don’t worry, GQ can get you right too.

  • This guy really IS Da Pocketsquare Kang

  • I think the pleats are a bad idea bruh. It really does end up looking like you got a lot of fabric up front for no reason. UNLESS you got on some high end slacks. That material lays better and doesn’t look like bunching. IMO of course.

    • You’re right, not all pleats are made the same. But there are some lines that make a good pair that don’t bunch up like that. A good tailor can help with that as well.

      • aye man, big size clothes already cost enough, now you got me goin to the tailor too? #FlatFrontLife
