Read this weeks Tribesmen Maurice Corbett interview.

1. What are some of your biggest fashion obstacles? PANTS! I have big thighs and finding pants that are cut for me has always been a challenge. The slim fits are always a little too snug, but relaxed fits make me look “frumpy.” These days, if pants don’t have a little stretch in them I won’t buy them. SHOES! I always describe my feet as being two cinder blocks attached to my ankles. They’re wide and they’re chunky. And as a result, it’s very rare that I can just walk into a shoe store and there are stylish options for me. The wide shoes available in stores are usually clunky and ugly. has become my best friend when it comes to shoe shopping, but it would be nice to not always have to go online to buy shoes for wide feet. I too like the idea of casually strolling into a store and casually walking out with a pair of new kicks.

2. Where are you from and how you describe your style? I’m originally from North Carolina but I’ve been living in DC/Maryland the past 10 years. I like to describe my style as something timeless and classic. I’m not really one to follow trends of the time.

3. Tell us about your biggest fashion nightmare and if it came true do explain. (attach a picture if you can)Definitely getting a stain on a brand new article of clothing. Accidentally spilling red wine on my shirt can instantly ruin a night out for me. And, because I’m clumsy, it happens more often than I’d like to admit.

4.What are your 2019 goals?I just bought a condo in Baltimore (first-time homebuyer) and with that came a list of project that I want to dive into. In short, I’d like to spend the rest of this year making this place a home. I recently bought my first DSLR camera, and I really want to get good at photography over the next 6 months. Getting into a good workout routine is also important to me. I’ve gotten on the wagon and fallen off the wagon so much over the years. I really want to get on and stay on. 

5. Where do you see yourself in five years and how do you see yourself accomplishing it? Tangibly, I have no idea where I see myself in five years. But what I definitely want for myself is true inner peace that shows on the outside. And to get there requires regular mental work, checking in with myself, therapy, meditation and a lot of self-accountability. It’s an ongoing journey for sure, but I’m well on my way.

6. How long have you been on the journey of being a Big & Tall man? What’s the biggest misconception you hear about Big & Tall Guys? I’ve been a big guy my entire life–genetics are hard to escape. But the journey to start truly embracing my size has been a fairly recent one. I came to the understanding that this is the only body I’ll ever have so I better love it regardless of the size. And the biggest misconception out there about big & tall guys is that just because we’re bigger, we live unhealthy lifestyles. Some of my best friends are big & tall guys, and they are some of the most physically active and healthiest eaters I know. Some of us are just naturally meant to be a little bigger. More to love!

7.If you could swap styles with one celebrity who would it be and why?I have really admired Pitbull’s style over the past few years. His collection of suits & blazers is quite enviable. I’d easily swap styles with him.
