I am not, nor have ever been, slim -- but then, neither have I ever been trendy.

That just leaves tired, which I am in spades.

I am not a big fan of slim fit clothes--I have no problem wearing them, but I just don't like how they look on me. I have broad shoulders and a narrow waist (42 drop 9-10), so it just looks terrible if I wear anything with ultra skinny lapels. With that said, I think the "GQ" look is very obnoxious. It makes me want to cry whenever I open that magazine. That is my idea of the ultra mod look.

Huh? Are you speaking Greece? Down coats (bubble coats) are supposed to be fitted so no air can get underneath them therefore keeping one warm.

Excuse the brutality, but why should we care about a 'trend' anyway?

The fashion for it is ending, actually. Check the recent shows of Lanvin and other lines. Many designers are showing coats that are still short, but boxier. The 80s revival helps promote this. It will percolate through the clothing culture over the next few years. What genuinely stylish men choose to do or not do is up to them. I stand by my sig.

I'll echo what's already been said: 7"+ drop =/= skinny. Not by a long shot. I have a 10" drop. I'm 6'1" and 293 lbs.

What's the definition of slim in this thread? Is it a RLBL like suit or is it a skin tight pair of jeans? The former I consider slim, the later skinny. Slim, I dig. Of course I'm 6'0 and 145-150.

I like that there is an option. The boxy, classic fit looks real sloppy on guys who should be wearing a slim fit.

Not a fan of skinny lapels, though..

Not a fan of the slim leg...which taper down to the ankle...combined with pointy shoes: UGH

RLBL slim is acceptable. Muscle tops are not.

I'm glad that dirty hispter fad is coming to a close.

The concept of "Slim" seems to be based on a fairly vaporous definition in this discussion.

If it's the painted on jeans of the smelly hipster archetype or the "soon to be doomed to the rag pile" skinny lapels and ties of some guy like Bill Maher, then count me out at the first available exit....if not sooner

But if we are talking "fitted," which is something quite different regardless of a gent's size, then I'm in.

In fact, having had the misfortune of being stranded in O'Hare for 6 hours last week, I could have counted on one hand the number of men whose clothes actually "fit" their physiques.

An extra 6" of fabric at the hem of pants, yards of excess in the bodies of jackets, and shoulders that were creeping towards the biceps were the rule, not the exception. Don't even get me started on the shoes (and WTF is the blazer-cum-ballcap look?).

It made me think that if this great nation needs a bailout designed to help the masses, its one based on tailoring not economics.
