The 50 Most Stylish Fat Guys of All Time

5. Fats Domino

Occupation: Musician
Approximate Weight: 245 lbs.

Fats Domino's flat-top was simply ahead of its time. In the '50s, it was entirely his own. It would take about 30 years for it to be adopted as a trend among black youth. Given the context of the flat-top's popularity in the late '80s and early '90s, it's really dope to see it juxtaposed with a proper suit and Domino's slick demeanor. Plus, even though he was a fat guy, all of his suits were expertly tailored and he wasn't afraid to rock things like a skinny tie, tie bar, and spectator shoes. In fact, the cover to 1957's Here Stands Fats Domino looks like a direct precursor to Kanye West's Rosewood Movement.
