#WeAreBigAndTall

Plus-size male models recreate iconic Calvin Klein shoot to show sexy comes in all sizes

For his new project #WeAreBigAndTall, model Darnel Ghramm is highlighting sexy plus-size male models.

In an Instagram post, Ghramm writes:

Because we’re big and tall, it doesn’t mean we’re not capable of doing the things an industry standard size model can do or that we shouldn’t have the same opportunities. [It] doesn’t mean we’re not worthy of proper representation or respect in society or be fairly represented in the fashion industry, because guess what? We wear clothes and have killer style too.

Word.

They asked…Have you ever seen a Plus Male Model? Do they even exist? What even constitutes as a plus size man? Then they asked…Does anyone remember that ‘Plus Size’ Calvin Klein campaign? Well, do you?! . I decided to bring together a few plus males with different ethnicities, height, sizes & shapes to answer these questions & recreate the 'Plus Size Male' shoot Calvin Klein missed out on. We EXIST and we are constituted by many different things. Whether big, tall or simply fall outside of the worlds standards, we are ALL handsome and worthy, FACT! – @dghramm . So, do we exist? Which photo do you prefer Top or Bottom?!? #wearebigandtall . ?: @tonytrottphoto . . #celebratemysize #mycalvins #goldenconfidence #effyourbeautystandards #bodypositive #plussize #plussizefashion #plussizemodel #honormycurves #plussizeblogger #fatshion #bigandtall #bigandtallfashion #plussizemalemodel #brawn #bigandtallmodel #mensfashion #menswear #menstyle #mensstyle #fashionblogger #styleblogger #model #antm #calvinklein #styleandcurve #hypebeaststyle #fashionbombmen

Ghramm gathered some of his best plus-size buddies, including models Rob Robinson, Arcadio Ady Del Valle and Miguel Rodriguez, to recreate a Calvin Klein menswear ad.

The campaign was shot by photographer Tony Trott.

Trust me when I say, "Believe in your f*cking self & you’ll be unstoppable!" What you think of yourself is way more important then what they think of you. So be mindful of your self talk, be good to yourself. Encourage yourself the same way you encourage others, your worth it. – @dghramm #wearebigandtall .

#WeareBigAndTall is a project I wanted to bring to life to shed some light on the under representation & misconceptions of plus male models. My mission is to represent & show what the Big&Tall Man are all about. . Because we're Big&Tall, it doesn't mean we're not capable of doing the things a industry standard size model can do or that we shouldn't have the same opportunities. Doesn't mean we're not worthy of proper representation or respect in society or be fairly represented in the fashion industry, because guess what? We wear clothes and have killer style too! Our appearance, height, body, size & shape should not be seen as "outside the norm. No more society or industry standards. I mean, who even set the standard? . I’m not here to be “The Standard”. I’m here to go against the norms of life and the industry by simply being me, not a mold. To show and inspire people to love themselves and make there dreams a reality, amongst all the criticisms and “No’s”. Anything is possible & I’m a walking example of it. – @dghramm ?: @tonytrottphoto . . #celebratemysize #goldenconfidence #effyourbeautystandards #bodypositive #plussize #plussizefashion #plussizemodel #honormycurves #plussizeblogger #bigandtall #bigandtallfashion #plussizemalemodel #brawn #bigandtallmodel #mensfashion #menswear #menstyle #mensstyle #fashionblogger #styleblogger #model #antm #styleandcurve #hypebeaststyle #fashionbombmen #statemgmt #drmartens #drmartensstyle #liveinlevis
