Dropcap the popularization of the “ideal measure” has led to advice such as “Increase font size for large screens and reduce font size for small screens.” While a good measure does improve the reading experience, it’s only one rule for good typography.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents.

On her way she met a copy. The copy warned the Little Blind Text, that where it came from it would have been rewritten a thousand times and everything that was left from its origin would be the word “and” and the Little Blind Text should turn around and return to its own, safe country. But nothing the copy said could convince her and so it didn’t take long until a few insidious Copy Writers ambushed her, made her drunk with Longe and Parole and dragged her into their agency, where they abused her for their projects again and again. And if she hasn’t been rewritten, then they are still using her.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts.

A collection of textile samples lay spread out on the table – Samsa was a travelling salesman – and above it there hung a picture that he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and housed in a nice, gilded frame. It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer.

Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather. Drops of rain could be heard hitting the pane, which made him feel quite sad. “How about if I sleep a little bit longer and forget all this nonsense”, he thought, but that was something he was unable to do because he was used to sleeping on his right, and in his present state couldn’t get into that position. However hard he threw himself onto his right, he always rolled back to where he was.

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections.

4 Style Tips For Large Men

Big frame? No sweat! Check out these fashion tips to enhance your look.

Published

on

Having a full figure isn’t a problem in itself but it may pose some challenges for men, especially when finding clothing items. For one, it may require time, effort, and additional resources to acquire clothing that would look flattering, feel comfortable, and suit the occasion. Moreover, putting together an attire can be tricky, especially if you want to put your best foot forward and impress.

Despite these challenges, it’s still possible to be well-groomed and stylish if you know the essentials of men’s fashion and how to tailor it to your specific needs and requirements. If you’re looking for tips on dressing sharply for your body type, continue reading this article.

Find The Perfect Fit

Wearing well-fitting clothing is essential to being fashionable. While it’s common for large men to lean toward loose clothing for comfort or convenience, not all of these items would look flattering, especially if you’re dressing up for important occasions. Additionally, clothes with a great fit should look good and be comfortable to wear, so they’re a definite must-have for your wardrobe.

Here are some quick tips on how you can find the right fit when shopping for clothes:

  • Go to shops that sell items specific to your body size and type. For instance, going to a store selling big & tall socks would make it easier and more convenient for you to find the perfect pair that would suit your needs.
  • A well-fitting dress shirt should fit comfortably under the armpits, chest area, and upper back. The shirt should also be long enough to be tucked in for formal settings.
  • Avoid wearing jeans and pants with a waistline that falls under your stomach, as this cut makes the belly look more pronounced. Choose bottoms with a waist that sits on your navel to minimize its appearance.
  • Loose or baggy shirts, shorts, and jeans are the least flattering clothing items for large men, so it’s best to find alternatives that give your body shape more structure.

The key to finding the right fit is striking a balance between comfort and visual appeal. To achieve this balance, it’s essential to take time when shopping and carefully select clothes while considering your measurements.

Select Quality Fabric

The most flattering type of fabric for large men are those that are lightweight, as they allow more definition to your silhouette without appearing too bulky. However, while lightweight, the material shouldn’t be too flimsy as this kind may cling to your form and cause discomfort.

Here are some examples of fabric that can give you the best comfort and visual appeal:

  • Thin knit fabric
  • Cotton
  • Denim
  • Oxford
  • Twill
  • Linen

These fabrics also have good breathability and absorbency, which can be helpful for those who experience heavy sweating. Hence, finding clothing made from these materials the next time you shop is a great idea.

Choose Flattering Colours And Patterns

The colours, designs, and patterns in your clothing also influence your silhouette, which is why it’s essential to consider them when putting an outfit together. Here are some tips you may find helpful in doing so:

Dark, solid colours are the most flattering for large men. They have a slimming effect on your silhouette when worn correctly, and they can also make you look taller.

Wear darker tones in places you want to minimize, such as arms, stomach, or thighs. Then, wear lighter colours on areas you want to emphasize to achieve a slimmer overall look.
Vertical lines can also have a slimming effect on your silhouette, and the most flattering are those that are thin and light-coloured. Meanwhile, horizontal lines would create a bulky look and emphasize a fuller figure, a reason for you to avoid them.

When choosing patterns, opt for smaller prints in muted tones. Contrastingly, avoid loud prints in bold colours as they don’t look flattering for large body types.

Lastly, it’s best to invest in basics in muted, neutral, and dark colours such as black, white, grey, brown, and navy. These colours are easy to match with accessories and give a toned-down effect on one’s overall look, ideal for those who are full-figured.

Polish The Look

One of the best ways to stay looking sharp, even when wearing simple clothes and accessories, is to polish your look. To do this, you’ll need to wear clean, well-pressed, and appropriately-styled clothing. You also have to look for any stains, loose threads, or damage, as they can easily take away from your style. Finally, looking polished also includes personal grooming and hygiene, which should be considered must-haves in your styling list.

Conclusion

Being above-average in size shouldn’t be a hindrance to looking sharp and stylish. All you need is to take the time to build a fashionable wardrobe, by investing in considered and fitting clothing items, and care for your grooming. Also, working on your style is a great way to boost your confidence, express your unique fashion sense, and practice self-care. Given its importance, investing in your clothing and styling is a wise decision.

The 5 Best Plus-Size Style Tips

Feeling comfortable in your clothes is a must for any man, and we’ve got some tips to help you out!

Published

on

Many men don’t fit into the “ideal” body-type mold and could consider themselves a big-guy – which is something to be proud of. However, this can have the illusion of  having narrow shoulders, and wearing the right clothing can go a long way to making you look sharp and feel more confident with your build. Here are some plus-size fashion tips worth checking out to give any plus-size guy a style-boost:

Dress according to your body

Dress according to your body shape, not what you want to, and this is a rule everyone should take note of. Everybody knows that the dimensions of our bodies vary from the length of our arms to the size of our calves. For instance, if you have the shoulders of a hooker (the rugby kind, sir, steady on), your thighs might be the width of a shoulder. 

It is possible for your stomach to be larger than your neck, or vice versa – we are all different and it is all possible. You must be able to determine exactly what your body looks like if you wish to properly dress or more specifically flatter it. You should measure yourself and search for clothes of the appropriate size. Peter Millar has everything to offer you according to your body size and shape. 

Always try first

Always try on first, no matter what. It might be a false economy, but if what you buy online or grab from the sale rack on your lunch break is pretty difficult to get on, then it might not be the best use of your time. Consider taking just a few minutes to dress in a few different things and examine how they fit in the mirror. It’s always worth it.

Sizing & Tailoring

A modern way to outfit yourself is by buying off the rack (in fact, it only really took off during the 20th century). In general, though, it is not a particularly advisable move, unless you happen to be some manufacturer’s Vitruvian Man. It might not be possible to have all of your clothing custom-made, but a tailor can nip and tuck where necessary to give store-bought clothing a whole new look.

Patterns and prints have the power to transform

Patterns and prints like stripes, florals, and chevrons instantly draw the eye. Therefore, they need to be deployed wisely. For the parts of your body, you prefer to show off, choose patterns, prints, and even bright contrast colours. For example, stripes with wide horizontal segments will only accentuate an already large torso area – which is fine, but only if that’s what you’re going for.

Be aware of what to avoid

It applies to all, but especially to men who don’t have a model-like build. Determine your style before doing anything else. Fashion trends can be incorporated from time to time, but they must work with your body rather than against it. Cuban collars? They look great on anyone. What about bare-chested suits? Probably not.
