We have heard a lot about plus size female models in the last couple of years but the media attention is much quieter when it comes to plus size male models. However, things look set to change as www.plus-model-mag.com features rugged Australian James Richard Aitken. Plus Size and Tall takes a closer look!
The 24 year old from Melbourne is 182cm tall with a chest of 183cm and waist of 110cm. His shoe size is a size 12. James Richard Aitken is undeniably gorgeous with dark features and blue eyes. He considers himself to be an authentic plus size model as he is confident portraying a healthy body image and embodies positive self esteem. BGM model agency evidently agrees as they have signed him to their books. James pursued a modeling career after reading an online article stressing the lack of plus size male models.
James Richard Aitken goes for the ‘cool look.’ If he were alive today, James would turn to James Dean as a style icon. His modern day icon however is David Bekham “because he always looks amazing no matter what he is wearing.” James told online magazine Jezebel “I want to make guys who aren’t skinny or who don’t have amazing muscular bodies feel comfortable too…men also need reassuring.” Jezebel continues to comment that ‘While plus-size female models are frequently posed nearly or fully nude, the industry is still uncertain how best to reveal the plus-size male body.’
