Good Counsel Makeover: Jace Yzaquirre

Four plus sized guys won a makeover in partnership with big and tall clothing service Good Counsel… this is Jace’s story.

“I wanted to do the GC makeover for three reasons.The first was to prove to myself that I had style just didn’t have time to go looking for clothes that fit. The second was too feel good about myself. A way I haven’t felt in a while. Third I thought I would be getting free great products. The third didn’t happen but now I know where to shop!”

“I thought the the pieces were great. I didn’t like how they were necessarily put together but I did love every piece. I wish i was given a bigger size for certain items.”

On the photoshoot: “I felt so insecure. I’ve always been like that but it was def to another level. As the music played and I felt the clothes, I felt so confident. It was so much fun I was hoping GC would use me as an actual model!”

Jace was asked how the makeover has changed his mind in anyway about his personal style and clothing choices:

“OMG Yes! I had no idea that preppy would be a great look on me!”

Style Notes

Jace came to Good Counsel with a robust sense of style and an energetic personality. As is with most guys, he enjoys a casual lifestyle and the clothes that go with it.

1) We set out to incorporate a tailored jacket into his casual work wardrobe, which when worn with a button-up shirt and GC stretch jeans, offered him a clean look along with structure to flatter his shape.

2) This jacket is your go-to piece for big events and small gatherings. Versatility is a Good thing.

3) Dress in military tones like olive, tan and black to ramp up your dress code.

4) We love sweats but dressing up a bit more says you’ve arrived, and you have the manners of a true gentleman.

One thought on “Good Counsel Makeover: Jace Yzaquirre

  • I have a big concern with this one. No sizes over 44??? Hot Bear! Please!!! In New York you don’t have second hand stores??? In San Francisco there are like 8 (Out of the Closet and Thrift Town – now Mission Thrift are two of the better/cheaper stores and slightly upscale ones like Buffalo Exchange) major second hand stores though the larger ones will have larger sizes in pretty cool fashion lines for a freaking lot less than even Wally World. Hell, Wally World carries sizes up to 44 though for some reason not in their work wear i.e. Dickies or Iron Gear. See if there is a Harley Davidsons Dealership with an apparel section – they are a bit pricier than most Big and Tall Men’s shops but the clothes are hot! Stay away from boutiques as they tend to cater to the skinny-ass crowd and are way over priced.
    In little old backwards Albuturkey New Mexico we have Buffalo Exchange, Thrift Town, Savers, Good Will, Salvation Army, St. Vincent de Paul, Humane Society etc…
