As some of you will know, I always revert back to my inner Goth when it comes to my clothing style and I rarely wear any other colour than black. Ok, blacks not a colour for any smart arses that decide to challenge me! 😉
As a bigger guy, I’ve always found that black or dark colours create a better silhouette than outlandish or lighter colours. I do, now and again, step outside of my comfort zone though and go for maybe some camo, or add a splash of colour to my outfit with some different coloured trainers or a cool pair of socks. Almost always though I revert back to black. I generally wear a 3XL on top and a 40” waist or XXL bottoms.
I took my staff on our annual Christmas night out this past Saturday so, beforehand, I decided to head over to ASOS.com and see what they had in their Men’s Plus Size section. This section of the website has been a god send for me, it allows me to go for more fashionable cuts in my trousers and also has some really cool tops that change seasonally.
For the night out I decided that I wanted to dress in comfortable material and be smart/casual. I like feeling smart but not overly smart and I am much more into streetwear fashion lately. I bought a pair of cropped oversized chinos from Asos a few months ago (in black of course) and they have ended up being one of my favourite pairs of trousers. So I threw a pair of them on my order along with a black longline long sleeve tee and a velour Harrington jacket in Olive Green!!!! (I went crazy and decided to throw a bit of colour in the mix for the occasion.) I figured a cool pair of socks and my trusty favourites, the Vans Skate high (triple black) would look great together with this combination. I tried it all on together and was really happy with the look.
The pants are SICK! I advise guys who are looking for an alternative to jeans to give them a go. It’s not only average sized men who can make a cropped pair of chinos look cool…. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
