You see someone in a slim fit and your mind immediately categorizes them as "in shape" (unless it's obvious that they aren't and shouldn't be wearing it.) For that reason, slim fits will always be in style. The thin people won't have it any other way.
I don't agree with this at all. Slim /= fit, period.
I consider myself in shape (I could afford to drop maybe 5lbs), but there's no way I can wear slim clothes. I have a huge chest, a fairly wide back, and big legs. Wearing slim clothing would just look retarded on me. Which is why I made this thread. I wanted to know what people in my situation do. Someone 6'1, 150lbs could wear an American Apparel henley no problem as it would drape on them very nicely, but when I try and wear my henley, it's almost skin tight on me and I just feel like a douchebag trying to show off my physique. That's just one example of many.
