1. What are your biggest fashion obstacles?
Finding clothing that doesn’t wear me………(just because it’s on doesn’t mean it looks good) ….Everyone doesn’t have the same body type …..so what may look good on someone else may not work for me……..So I have to try on multiple sizes and styles until I achieve the look I wear well …..not the look that wears me.
I am from Saint Louis, Missouri (The Show Me State) aka “Da Lou” …A few of the biggest fashion trends that I see in “Da Lou” are the “Vintage” look and the “Classicman” look.
I’m can’t really say I have had a fashion nightmare…..(laughing)….. because I am so conscious of what I put on……. but this is how I think….when you are apart of “XL Tribe ” you stand out and your very presence will command attention…..with that in mind….This is the question that poses: “Do I want people to remember me as sloppy dude or a well put together dude?
I’ve coined my style as the “flashy conservative” look…….So a lot of my styles are inspired by Burberry, Banana Republic, Calvin Klein, David Britton, Buffalo……these brands have the neat conservative look I go for but can also be flashy or on the edgy side.
Potentially owning a men’s clothing store catering to the “XL Tribe” …..My sister has owned a women’s boutique in Saint Louis for the past 6 years and I’ve worked closely with her on this journey where I believe she has the knowledge and experience to help me get this venture off the ground and be successful doing it.

Hola Mi Tribesmen I guess I’ll start by introducing myself. I’m Kirklan Hawes the Founder and creator of XLTribe.com. This site was birthed from an old idea I had to create a community of like-minded guys that was tired of being miss represented and wanted to be displayed in the truest form. Changing the way Big & Tall Men are perceived is the goal for XLTribe.com.
