Learning to Dress Like a Fuckin' Man.

corbinchamberlin:

Come one, come all; My inbox has been flooded with questions about plus-size clothing for men. Chubstr’s editor, Bruce has asked me to collect those questions and answer them on Chubstr next week. Please email your questions and comments to chubstr@chubstr.com. Thanks so much! 

It’s great that there is a rising awareness in fashion about the aforementioned lament of the plus-sized man who wishes to be better dressed. The gentleman above, Mr. Corbin Chamberlin, is a [fantastic] blogger for the NY Times, and someone who’s daily de rigueur is one that I hope to be able to someday emulate in such a way that I am noticed for being a gentleman of style.

I have been away. Work has been murderous. Life has gotten in the way of prioritizing my fashion life, or rather, lack thereof. But you remember those olive green Neumoks, by Allen Edmonds? Oh yeah. Guess who got a pair. This guy right here.

harris tweed

hey whats up man i saw your post about the tweed. i went to my local walmart and they had them. and im not going to lie they look pretty good. i have a pic of them with me trying them on that i posted here if u want to check it out. http://niketalk.com/image/id/946633/width/900/height/900/flags/LL they have 3 types 2 with same pattern but one is blue and one is grey. and the other one has a zig zag plan. god bless

Thanks, man! The gray one is pretty nice. Unfortunately I’ve been so busy I haven’t had a chance to get out to Wally World locally. Hopefully tweed is uncool enough with the DC Metro WalMart set that I can get my hands on one or two jackets. Cheers!
If I could still grow hair on the top of my head, this is a style I would definitely consider rocking.

Thrifting, Brooks Brothers socks and brisket.

A few weeks ago, my dad says, “Do you need socks? I bought these and they’re too big,” to which I happily obliged. My dad wears a lot of really old school patterns, but if the man is offering me new socks, I will take them. My Timberlands (Earth Keeper Side Zips) are great, but a little tough to put on if I wear thicker socks so I decided to try them on with dress socks, because of the thinner fabric.

First pair of dress socks I grab is a pair of the socks that my dad gave me. And I unfurled them to see a FUCKING BROOKS BROTHERS label on them. If you weren’t aware of the glory of BB socks, they are great because they ACTUALLY STAY UP when you put them up. A lot of socks don’t, and as most guys know, it is a huge pain in the ass. On top of that, Brooks Brothers is expensive. Each pair of socks is $24.50, and in some cases, $49.50. Which is probably why they actually stay up on yo’ motherfuckin’ calves. All in all, score.

I went thrifting this morning and got two blazers, a couple of sweaters (one of which is from Banana Republic) and a dress shirt. Total cost? Right around $25 for all of it. I will post pictures after dry cleaning and tailoring.

And after all that, I had delicious brisket and latkes for dinner. It is Hanukkah, after all. Good Saturday.

I have a pair of Timberland Earth Keepers Side Zips, and I love them. I do. They are NOTHING next to a pair of almost anything in Wolverine’s 1000 Mile collection. These boots are fucking beautiful.
