XL’s Featured Tribe’s Men Of The Week DeAndre Upshaw
I grew up in the Houston area, but have lived in Dallas for the past decade. I work in video production for a digital marketing agency, and travel a good deal for work so my everyday clothes are simple essentials – black or blue jeans, and t-shirts. One of the things that helps keeps me sane when I travel is routine – I generally wear the same 2-3 outfits, which helps me pack efficiently, and is one less thing to worry about.
When it comes to going out and special occasions, I’m definitely a more is more kind of guy. I love bold patterns and color. I find that when you’re bigger and taller than the rest of the population, you have two options – you can either try to hide by blending in, or you can lean into it and embrace being over the top.
I’ve been big and tall all my life. I think one of the misconceptions people have is that we should wear drab, shapeless clothes. We can (and should!) wear anything that makes us feel strong and confident.
