Attention all fat masculine folks!

You know that moment when you get invited to a more formal event and before even getting excited about attending…you think to yourself, “Shit, I have nothing to wear!” It’s so frustrating. The lack of accessible plus size formal wear is astounding. You immediately have to check the calendar to see if it’s even possible to go online shopping and have something delivered in time. So stressful. Don’t put yourself through that. Let’s get proactive. Here’s a few really comfy, superfat sized, masculine, button ups that will not only be acceptable for a business casual type event but will be on-trend too.

Classic comfort and versatility

Start by getting a simple, pinstripe or checkered, button up in a chill color. I mean, they can go with anything. I’m really into this IZOD button up because it is so comfortable and makes any pair of pants look a little bit more dressed up. I could throw on a tie, toss a sweater over it, or just wear it with the sleeves rolled up and feel kinda casual. This one is a generous size 6X.

Get a little attention with The Foundry

The Foundry is probably my favorite brand at any big name store. First of all, they actually regularly carry my size (which feels like a dream but really should be fucking mandatory don’t ya think?). Secondly, their consistently committed to providing fashionable options for big and tall/plus size masculine folks.

I’ve been dying to have a shirt with something fun printed all over it like those cool hipsters on Instagram. I was so happy when my partner surprised me with this iguana button up!

I feel like a lot of fat folks spend a lot of time trying to just blend in. We get noticed far more than we would like to in every day life, therefore when shopping we have a hard time getting creative and trying out something bold. It’s time for a change. It’s time for us to step a little bit outside of our comfort zones here and try something new. Be a little bold now and then. Make a statement. You don’t have to hide in the crowd.

Island printed tees and button ups are super in right now. Get yourself one! You’re allowed to be a carefree fatty with super sweet vacation dad vibes.

Custom You Suits

Custom You Suits is such an incredible resource! This brand will work with you to make your formal attire the exact style you want, with the measurements you need! I’ve always loved button ups with creative and fun cuffs and the folks at Custom You Suits brought my idea to life with this one. The shirt is comfortable, fits to perfection, and it feels great supporting a small business.

Check out the site here, where you can choose from a variety of options for shirts and linings. You’ll send them your measurements and they’ll be so sweet and kind about getting you a piece with just the right fit. Great news too…they do suits, tuxedos, and slacks! All your formalwear needs are covered.

Don’t panic. If you’ve got a little bit of cash to spend, these basics will do you right. A little planning will go a long way!

    Thank you for all these recs!! I’m also a fat masc-presenting NB person who LOVES wearing nice suiting and vacation dad prints, but can’t always find them in the sizing and price point I need. This guide was super helpful and empowering! <3 keep on being you!

    • Dressed head to toe in @kingsizedirect thanks to winning a pretty sweet contest hosted by @can.we.all.go !! Feeling real blessed tbh. Ive always wanted a pair of shorts with the rolled cuff at the ends. Also one of these hoodies which I NEVER thought I’d find in my size!

If you could win big money to ANY brand in the world where would it be? Doesn’t have to be clothing either👌🏼

    • Shout out to the weirdos, the outsiders, the creatives, the fatties, the underrepresented, the ones who live outside the binary, the ones who look to media and wish they looked different because they dont see themselves in anyone being praised or admired. I admire you. For your strength. For your persistence. For not having your shit together. For choosing authenticity over conformity. For refusing to be defined by strict societal rules. I admire you for being visible. You inspire me and Im thankful for you.

    • We’re working on training this lil guy and getting him more socialized out in the world and its WORKING! Look at him lay down all comfy! He is very anxious and gets easily distracted and disrupted by basically all sounds. Except for in his very specific safe spaces. He had been displaying some aggressive and protective behaviors regarding us and our home, (hes like 15 months old). So we’re taking him out more, slowly letting him adjust to learning that yes, there are other people in the world, and sometimes they exist NEAR us and its OKAY😂 He’s been to official training, gotten some doggy meds, and is responding super well to positive reinforcement (all the treats). anyway Im just really proud of his growth over the last few weeks and of @fatgirlflow for really taking the lead and using every opportunity for a learning moment! His name is Taco by the way. I tend to call him Tacho/Dacho.

    • The irony of me wearing this shirt today is that Im a bundle of anxiety. Anxious negative vibes. Im coming up against some new challenges professionally right now. And I have a really hard time with feeling defeated by new hurdles when Im not immediately great at things. I get so frustrated with myself and just want to throw in the towel. Does anyone else have experience with this? Extra points if you’ve got insight into how to tackle it.

Big thanks to @bigboyseason365 for gifting the shirt (which I love even on my hard days lol) and to @fatgirlflow for being the sweetest gem to me while Im learning and growing. Growth doesnt always look like flowers and sunshine. Sometimes it looks like cocooning yourself in bed and reflecting on things you need to reach out to people for help with.
