I've seen some people look stylish in looser clothing, where they look relaxed, without being daggy. As for bobo i dunno the appeal about his look... he looks a bit daggy/nerdy to me but I don't mean to disrespect. enlighten me if you will.

nerdy.. maybe, my main interest these days actually is ...science.

The problem is that so many mall brands churn out fat people sized clothes which don't fit slim people well without tailoring that loose fitting becomes synonymous with ill fitting, likewise slimness has become synonymous with a good fit as its an indicator that the shirt is not designed for someone bigger than the wearer. People didn't have this problem back in the day because size inflation hadn't started and bespoke was once a standard, so loose fitting clothes would almost always fit the wearer properly as they were either designed for him or someone of a similiar non-fat build

I think that people wear slim fitting clothes, in part, to show off the fact that they can wear slim fitting clothes. People who are not in shape, generally speaking, are limited to looser fits. So it is a way to show off that you are in shape, or at least thin. 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.

This might be a dumb question, but I know this is a major point in fashion. How do you come to understand proportion and drape? I know a good fit can depend on these factors which are themselves variables that can depend on each other, but I really don't know where to begin with this stuff. Right now, I just stick with fitted to be safe, but I want to have a little more fun than safe.

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.

And not to beat a dead horse, but I think a looser/non-slim fit top is fine, as long as the pants are slim enough to contrast it well. That's actually been my spring look. Drapey tee with some toight pantz.
