IMG Models Presents Its First Male Plus-Sized Model

IMG Models' new 'Brawn' division welcomes a new era of physique standards for men.

Bears, rejoice. There's a new division at IMG Models meant for plus-sized male modelling. Called 'Brawn', its first signing is none other than the first-ever male plus-sized model to appear for Target, Zach Miko. Standing at 1.98m with a waist size of 40 inches, he's far from the standard model size. Considering even Target had to cut up medium-sized samples for the shoot and pin it back to fit XL-sized Miko, it's high time that there's more representation for the non-spornosexual male. 

Fit the clothes to the man, not the other way round. Hopefully, the tide will turn and there will be more better-fitting clothes available in the market once the industry recognises that there are more Zach Mikos than Lucky Blue Smiths in the world. Body positivity y'all, it's not just for the ladies.
