Contrary to popular belief Big and Tall men have always had style, It’s just we usually had to be creative with our choices of clothing. In the past, we’ve had search a little harder than other men for stylish gear. Times have changed so much over the years that most fashion brands now offer extended sizing for bigger men. Since becoming a blogger I’m always checking out people who have great personal style. Well, to kick off the New Year I figured it was important to start with a man who always displays his personal style through his social media, I present to you, Dustin Fennell!!!
Name: Dustin Fennell
Marital Status: Single
Occupation: Event Producer & Commercial Banking Analyst
Who is Dustin Fennell? Dustin Fennell is a southern, humble guy that loves his friends and family and is always looking for that next moment of growth.
Were you always taller than your peers? I actually wasn’t, I skyrocketed it to 6”6 when I was around 19 and my older sister was taller than me for years and then overnight it just changed.
At what point did you take notice in height? Not until recent years really, a lot of my family is tall so it was kind of the norm. Now everywhere I go someone is always saying “Wowww how tall are you?’ lol
Do you think that being tall has made a significant impact on your life? The moment I started to just embrace it and realize I couldn’t do anything about standing out it’s def boosted my confidence.
How would you describe your style? I have different moods, I usually go for the casual eccentric/eclectic look. I love dressing in the fall, boots, cardigans, dark colors, layers, all of the above!
Do have any clothing items that are hard to find? Whats some of your favorite brands to wear? If I cant find it I have a few folks I hit up to make it for me lol. ASOS is a great go-to for tall guys, they have a lot of the same options at the same price point.
If you had the opportunity to design a collection for a clothing brand who would it be for? I would love to intro a big and tall line into Zara, I love a lot of their options but unfortunately, they don’t have any big or tall sizing.
What’s a 90’s fashion style that you would bring back or that has already come back that you like?
Shoes are key to any good outfit, what are your top 3 shoe designers? Nike, Converse and any boot that I can find in my size lol.
What is the best pair of shoes you have owned? I use to be a sneakerhead in high school, so I still grab a few now and my all-time favs are still all the retro Jordan’s.
Music and fashion go hand and hand, who are some of your favorite artists in terms of style? Rihanna, Luke James, Pharrell, Lil Uzi, Lenny Kravitz some of my top artist, they always express themselves and you can get their vibe from what they are wearing.
What songs are currently in heavy rotation on your playlist? I will go Meg thee Stallion Realer to PJ Morton Say So. I love music and I’m into hella genres of it.
If you could start a charity, what would it be for? I would start it for teenage LGBT African American young men. Helping them to identify their place in the world and own who they are as an individual.
