Its an individual + context thing. I have been dissed by certain types of chicks for "looking like I work out", and then flirted with by the same kinds of chicks as the weather got warmer and layers came off. They don't know what they want. Even w/good arms though I think tanks outside of the gym or w/e are no go, a tee is just as breezy w/o saying "check out my gunzz"
i dno the drape of a tank is much different the a t shirt. i love the way it looks with a summer outfit.
Mag: part of it is because wearing all black defeats the purpose of wearing less. The other part is that i wear casual clothes a lot less now that i'm working in a stiflingly boring bizcaz environment that "tamer" casual clothes are fun enough as is. But yeah, i'm planning on heading to all saints/RO/Altelier at some point to try shit on and see if drapey shit is totally absurd looking on my frame (i'm 5'6", after all) The other idea was to look like a California surfer from the 90's a la wavves. Snapback/graphic tee turned into jersey/light wash lightweight denim/beat up sneakers.
