A few months back I wrote a piece discussing the ever-growing issue of male body image and how it impacts the way men feel and dress in their day-to-day lives. Having received a great deal of feedback from many of you, it soon became apparent that one of the main complaints you have is that bloggers who talk about fashion for larger/broader body types are hard to find.
So, today I’ve put together 5 men’s style bloggers who are paving the way for bigger body types and destroying body image stereotypes with it. These gents prove that just because you aren’t a skinny fit kind of guy, doesn’t mean you have any excuse not to look sharp. So check out these fellows making a big impact with their big styles.

A few weeks back myself and a few other bloggers were invited along to an Christmas photoshoot in Shoreditch by the people from Joe Brown’s. It was a great chance to meet up with fellow bloggers, both well-established and new, as well as catch up with a friend or two. It was also an opportunity to style something I hadn’t previously tried before, namely an outfit that uses heavier, thick-wool tailoring to give a slightly rustic look. View Post
Yesterday a story came out concerning a row between a small baking business and a lifestyle blogger. The row itself touched a nerve that both brands and bloggers have often spoken of but never fully discussed. Namely, the relationship between bloggers and brands who collaborate and how they value each other’s work. View Post
The past few months have been pretty hectic here at The Male Stylist. A new year, new job and new house have all meant that I’ve been a little rushed off my feet. However, recently the website has received attention from some top names in the men’s style industry and I’ve also had the opportunity to contribute to some leading men’s lifestyle and fashion websites. I wanted to post a few of these to give you the opportunity to read them and get the chance to explore some fantastic websites to get advice and tips on.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been gathering some of my favourite posts from bloggers who I follow and read regularly. Far too often great content is read and then never shared with others simply because people don’t remember to or they don’t necessarily have the time. Today, I wanted to discuss 5 of my favourite posts that I’ve seen in recent times and what makes them (and their authors) so great.
Style Girlfriend: Steal His Look – Schmidt from “New Girl”
It’s no secret that I love the Style GF website and the styles she uses in her posts. However, this post has become a strong favourite with me as I love Schmidt’s fashion sense and I have been told I have very similar behaviour patterns to Schmidt on multiple occasions (read: family, friends, work colleagues and anyone who has spent longer than 5 seconds in my company). It’s a great breakdown of what makes the character’s style so unique as well as a complete breakdown of the look for readers to shop. Simple and stylish, the Style Girlfriend to a tee. View Post
