Outfit​ Of The Week Winston Ward

XL Featured Tribesmen Winston Ward is our weekly pick.

  1. There are so many fashion brands available now, what do you still think is missing in menswear?

On a macro level. I think making big and tall brands available at retail stores is so important. Prior to about 2017 finding big and tall brands in retail was like looking for a needle in a haystack. And when you did find something it was gaudy or very unappealing. Thankfully over the past few years, brands such as Goodfellow & Co, Target, DXL, The Foundry have been closing that gap of providing quality/fashionable clothing for big and tall men. I think the next iteration of this would be to integrate more of big and tall clothing into the mainstream and especially in mainstream retail stores such as H&M etc.

2.What are some of your personal 2020 goals?

Some of my personal 2020 goals are to continue to produce high-quality music for myself and all of the other people I work with. I also plan on delving deeper into becoming a male model. Right now, taking pictures is just something I do leisurely. I’d also like to continue to grow my personal brand by putting out quality content more consistently. Lastly, my son was born a few months ago and my goal is to be the best father that I can be to him

3. What are some of your favorite brands and why?

Some of my favorite brands are Ralph Lauren, Goodfellow & Co, The Foundry, Good Counsel, Puma & Old Navy. I appreciate the quality of their clothes and the designs they have. Nothing is gaudy and they allow me to dress comfortably in any situation. Honorable mention; I appreciate the fact that DXL has dedicated physical locations for big and tall guys. Online shopping can be a hassle especially when things don’t fit or when you have to get something at the last minute.How long have you been on the journey of being a Big & Tall man?

4. What’s the biggest misconception you hear about Big & Tall Guys?

I’ve been on this Big & Tall journey for almost all of my life. I’ve been a big guy since I was smaller and always had to shop in the “husky” section for school clothes and stuff. I think the biggest misconception about big & tall guys is that we’re sloppy. I feel like most big and tall clothes aren’t made to be worn “right out of the store”. Most of the time, the arms/legs are too long. Sometimes the legs need tapering. Other times, other alterations are needed to make the outfit truly come together. It wasn’t until a few years ago when I realized this. I don’t think we’re sloppy, it’s just that some big and tall guys don’t know that sometimes an extra step is needed to complete certain wardrobe looks.

5. If you could swap styles with one celebrity who would it be and why?

I really like Michael B. Jordan’s fashion style. I know he’s not a big and tall guy but I think if I could be the Michael B. Jordan of the Big & Tall space, I’d feel accomplished lol. I just love his color selection, the cuts/tapers he uses, the varying styles etc. I feel like he’s not afraid to push the envelope but he always does It with class. That’s what I’d like to personify.
