This week’s XL Celebrity is a newcomer to many Saeed Renaud. I was sitting on my couch while still recovering from that old nasty flu and I was getting caught up on the episode I missed of The Four. Anybody that knows me knows I love music and this show doesn’t disappoint so far. Fast Forward to around the last forty-five mins of the two-hour premiere and in walks in Saeed. First thought was yes they got one of up there representing lol. Second thought was a Diddy moment is he gonna bring the talent the panel has been asking for all episode long… Listen below for yourselves and also read the exclusive interview with Saeed.
1. What was the wardrobe experience like on The Four?
At first, it was hard because they didn’t have big dude clothes that I liked but eventually they listened to me and got apparel from stores I frequent.
2. Being the only Big & Tall man on the show do you feel pressure to represent?
Not pressured, but my goal is to look fly.
3. Before the show what was your go-to style like?
Pretty much what you see on the show. Distress jeans, zippers, leather, and a fitted cap for every occasion lol.
4. What are some of your favorite clothing stores to shop?
Big & Tall, Cooper River Jeans, Dr.Jays, Oublier.us, and Makobi are my favorite places.
5. What’s one piece of advice you have gotten that really stuck with you?
Your Fashion is your personal expression, so be the trend don’t follow it. Be you, big and all.. short or tall.. because confidence is what separates the people who wanna do “It”
from the people who are doing “it”. Whatever it is for you whether it’s music, fashion, dancing, etc.
What's Your Reaction?
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.
