Fashion Friday – Movember, my experience with facial hair!

So if you know me you’ll know that I don’t normally let my facial hair grow that long, it is however Movember which means men stop shaving for the month. The idea behind Movember is to raise money for mens health issues, such as prostate cancer; a great cause. Even if you’re not able to raise any money I still believe that you should give no shaving a go, it helps the people who are raising money get noticed more and it’s the team spirit! So I went without shaving, what did I find out about having facial hair. It scratches a little and it feels weird to start with. Sure you find all these sexy guys with beards and stubble and they look amazing right? They’ve probably had all that facial hair for some time though and are used to how it feels, which I have to say does…

Plus size male models? Where are they hiding?!

I’m a big boy, I get it; thanks to the media though I’d like to be referred to as plus size. I was doing some research a while back before starting my Fashion Friday posts and found that there actually aren’t many. If you do stumble across some they can be wearing some awfully bad clothes, haven’t seen any plus size underwear models that’s for sure. I mean check out this independent post about how there aren’t any on the scene! Or this Revelist post, I mean I could link you to loads of them, about how model agencies have said they are going to start hiring plus size male models and they just haven’t. I know that body imaging for women is a huge problem but what about us guys. I’m so fed up with seeing loads of adverts for these hot studs I’m never going to live up…

Fashion Friday, Sorting the appearance with Blue Beards Revenge!

As you get older you start to realise that appearance is everything. It doesn’t matter if people tell you it isn’t, because it is. The people who tell you that it doesn’t matter how you look, they’re the people who wake up in the morning ready to arrive at a photo shoot and look naturally stunning; not jealous or anything! The great thing about the age we live in though is it really doesn’t matter what you wear, people love it. Everyone loves a nice bit of fashion and bold statements. What really a matters is the face, well face and hair to be exact. Putting the fact that everyone is rather vain aside I found something new, go me! Blue Beards Revenge, I hope people like the name as much as I do; it rocks! So who are they? Blue Beards Revenge are a male grooming company with a…

Fashion Friday. Trainers, where are all the wide fitters?

I have a pain, the pain of not being able to buy enough shoes! Many times I’ve had to return shoes because they just don’t fit. They’re the right size but they happen to suffocate my feet at the same time! It sucks, it really does. I’ve been trying to find shoes to fit my wide feet for years. I must point out that I blame my left foot which for some reason seems to be wider than my right, my right foot gets in a right mood about it as well. Ever had your feet fight each other, it isn’t fun! I’d love to be able to say these shoes are amazing for wide feet, there are so many places to get them. I really can’t. I had a huge problem before I went to Bangkok where I ordered two pairs from Nike, neither of them fit. I even…

Fashion Friday, What’s that about?

Lately I’ve seen a rise in plus size models, which is great although they all seem to be female? I’m not sure if society still has a view that men are supposed to be fit and toned with wash board abs, but that just isn’t the case. I’m not skinny, I don’t have abs and I am forever trying to lose weight. It can be a tough uphill struggle, especially with the media throwing out male underwear models and the perfect male image. So I came up with fashion Friday. I’m always looking for new clothes, shoes that fit or something different that supermarkets just don’t stock. So why not chat about it? I’ve given it some thought and feel like it’s something close to my heart and something that I want to talk about. It would be great if you could come along with me. I thought about creating…
