I started this blog because I have never felt like I had anyone in my corner as I try to find clothes and clothing styles that work for my body. Looking and feeling awkward in my clothing choices not only affected my confidence but it had a direct affect on my mental health.
This blog is here to fill the void in the Tall Mens Fashion industry and help you feel awesome in what you wear everyday. Our female counterparts have done an amazing job growing their niche and the clothing companies have listened, while we men have been stuck with Mr. Big & Tall for ages. We fit many more sizes than that, and I’m here to help you find your size and style to work with.
Over the years I have done many things. Growing up I was fully focused on my athletics, getting drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the MLB and then becoming the first two sport athlete at LSUS down in Shreveport Louisiana. Post college I have spent time modeling, taken part in the movie industry as an actor and was a personal trainer for 10 plus years.
In the last few years my life changed course in a way I never thought would happen. I lost my dad to a battle with Parkinson’s disease and cancer. Seeing him waste away to nothing right in front of my eyes sent me down a spiral of depression and anxiety. For 18 months I was in such a depressed state I didn’t know how to live a normal life, but through hard work with multiple therapists and a day to day focus on getting better, I found my way back. I shared my journey through this hard time, in hopes to inspire others and it has grown into the mental health help website Never Alone. Where I share helpful tips, inspirational stories and informative blogs on all aspects of mental health to inspire others just like me.
Being 6’7 I can never remember a time I was able to buy anything off the rack.
Keeping with the topic of mental health, I remember clearly going shopping as a teenager and seeing clothing after clothing that I wanted to wear in the stores. However there were only two outcomes that would come, one being I would try on the pieces and they would be either too short or too skinny. Or, what would happen most of the time, the salesperson would say they didn’t have my size.
Shop after shop, year after year this would happen. It was frustrating, socially awkward and depressing.
As I grew older, I started finding brands and styles that allowed me to wear the clothes that I felt confident in. As my confidence grew my ability to wear new styles grew as well, and I want to share these styles with you.
I want to help you feel confident in your own clothing choices.
But more importantly, I want to help you feel more confident in the skin that you are in.
Let’s do this together,
