XL’s Featured Tribe Men Of The Week Tank Brown talks about his favorite brands whats his signature style and more. Let me tell you’ll a little story . I asked Mr Brown over a year ago almost two years to feature him and I so glad he didn’t forget out us, and I’m so proud to say now your blog post is live.
1. What are your biggest fashion obstacles?
Finding suits and jeans that come in my size.
2. Where are you from and how you describe your style?
Born and raised in Chicago, IL My style is basically determined by how I feel or whatever the occasion. Weekends is usually shorts, jeans, t-shirts. Sunday church attire is usually a nice suit, shirt and a bowtie or African attire For work its usually business casual.
3. Tell us about your biggest fashion nightmare and if it came true do explain. (attach a picture if you can)
Can’t think of one.
4.What are somethings you wanna see more of from your favorite brands?
I would like to see more plus size men in ads for athletic wear like Under Armour and Nike. I’m a big fan Under Armour.
5.Where do you see yourself in five years and how do you see yourself accomplishing it?
In 5 years, I see myself in a relationship (possibly engaged or married), in an advanced position at my job, living in a two bedroom condo. I will accomplish these by working hard, being patient and staying focused.
6.What do you feel is missing in fashion for the men of size?
What I think is missing are more of the big name brands being focused on plus size men (suits, sweaters, athletic wear).
7.If you could swap styles with one celebrity who would it be and why?
Off hand I can’t say there is a celebrities style I would want to swap for. I would have to give that more thought.

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.
