Now our second Boy of beauty is a lovely man who is sent over some awesome bits for the competition, Rudy Bleu. This is the guy behind Big Boy Vintage. These guys are doing their bit for the bigger bros out there and with their online store HERE you can see why Big Boy Vintage is really worth checking out. Also make sure to follow their tumblr for news and hot pics!They have some big and exciting stuff happening in the Future and I am honoured to say that despite me not being that much of a big boy (apart from the obvious area!) they have let me become an honorary Big Boy! YES! So on this glorious bank holiday Monday, lets have a little chat with the original Big Boy himself…Hey Rudy! How are you?Doing good these days keeping busy ya know.For anyone who isn’t familiar with the brand, Tell us a little bit about yourself and about Big Boy Vintage.Big Boy Vintage started last fall. It grew out of the frustration of many vintage places not really carrying clothes in sizes large and up. So I decided to start BBV. We carry vintage and used clothing in sizes large and up and 38 waist and up. We also carry accessories and other knick knacks at our pop up events.The stuff you sell is pretty rad. You have a few amazing band Tees like you had a tour shirt from the no Doubt tragic kingdom tour and Ru Paul tees thats amazing! Im a big fan of your logo tees. (Like the one I’m wearing in the photo!) Tell us a little about your logo.Well we are trying our best to carry rad stuff. I am glad that people are into it. Our logo was designed by Matt better known by all his fans as Ultragraphique. I basically told him what I wanted and he drew him up in many versions and we finally settled on the one that now exists. Which I think is super cute!If you could recommend one record and one movie that would help us get to know you and BBV better what would it be?Ha that is way to hard…I mean it musically it would be maybe something like Bikini Kill, The Germs, Siouxsie & the Banshees. But they also change the following day to like Trina, the Cover Girls, the Marvalettes. I guess it just depends on the day. For movie I am going to go with Pretty in Pink.You have some pretty hot models in your calendar- we have a few to give away as prizes- where do you find your models?I met most of the boys who model through tumblr or various internet sites. Though these days the newer models are being recommended by friends or the models themselves or our fans.I think there has been so many campaigns and stuff in the press over the years about models being too skinny and “big is beautiful” but most the emphasis is on girls.Do you think it’s important to show that bigger boys are just as fly?I mean there is notion that boys don’t care about fashion or have body issues. It is so lame. I mean I have been a big boy my whole life and I have always been into clothes. It has been a journey to grow and love myself no matter what size I am. I know that clothes have played a big role in feeling better about my body. So I think that this idea of providing a place for boys to find rad clothes in bigger sizes is an extension of that. So yeah I do think it is important to show big boys with good style or crop tops and your belly out.What are you top 5 prize possessions?These days it would be my vintage Raiders jacket, vintage floral denim blazer, Kurt and Courtney Sassy mag issue, my 7inch record collection, and a drawing of Boy George my older brother did in the 80’s when he was in 7th grade.Best thing you’ve ever picked up in a vintage store?I have so many good pairs of short shorts that i love.3 things you look for in a dream Man?FunnyIntelligentGood Personal StyleSo tonight, we are going on a date. You’re going to try your hardest to sweep me off my feet and bag my heart!Where would u take me on our date?I would probably take you to a really awesome hillside with a view of LA and have dinner while the sunsets. Or actually I would probably save that for the second or third date. I would take you for tacos and some sort of adventure out in the city. I am more into spontaneous stuff… but it would involve some sort of food.…and more importantly what would you wear?um with you hopefully nothing by the end of it.Sounds amazing. I really want to go to LA, and I love food and being naked. You’ve won me over!You sent me a few special prizes for our winner, thank-you!So do I have what it takes to be a BBV model!?Um I mean your cute and all, but your size ‘large’ doesn’t apply to your tummy.I mean no complaints about where it does apply!Haha!So you’re a fan of my blog?Yes sir. Discovered it over a year ago now.What is it you like about my blog and what is it that keeps you coming back for more?!I mean the cock shots help, but I love your personal aspect of it all and we have similar taste in stuff.What does the future hold for BBV?BBV will be releasing a zine in May with contributions by our fans and friends. We are also going to hopefully have a more permanent space for people to shop in Los Angeles by the summer. With the hope of eventually having our own space. There are so many other fun things in the works but we are keeping quiet about those!Well I’m glad I have you on board as a fan and also honoured you’re part of this little competition!Thank you kindly for your time, and good luck with the future plans. xx
