2.2??? thats not even healthy. who measured that? stage ready bf% is like 4%. have you been on epistane or tren for too long?

Waist sizes are so ridiculous that department stores have stopped selling 30" belts, but they offer 42-44" belts now. 20 years ago, you couldn't find belts 42-44" at most department stores. I love the slim fitting trend. I can finally buy pants without my tailor saying the seat needs to get taken in. The regular shirts with 44" waist would have looked ridiculous on my 5'7" 140 lb frame, last year. It was even more ridiculous in my younger years, when I weighed 125 lb with a 27" waist and a 35-36" chest. The shirt was all bunched up and wrinkled and the side seams would slide either too far back or too far forward. Even at my current weight of 150 lbs, I still have problems getting a proper fit with regular fit clothes. My tailor is going to be very rich, if the slim fit trend ends.

I am completely on board with slim/fitted. Slim clothing is not a trend if you are slim. Skinny nutcrusher jeans may be out, but that is a different issue.

No need to buy Lanvin if you like boxy. Save some money and buy a suit from any mall in the country.

this is what 3% looks like and it can only be held for a few hours because your subcutaneous water levels are near 0

Pants that taper down to 8 inches look very good. Is this considered slim?

Looks much better than unfitted clothing IMO.

No healthy man should be under 8% body fat imo

I was at 5 or 6% when I wrestled and that was just ridiculously unhealthy to live like that.

I think I'm around 11% now and in the best shape of my life.

I do think it's funny that we are even discussing this given the vast amount of guys who wear clothes that are too large as was mentioned above

I can't even think of the last time I saw a guy in a major airport wearing a suit or jacket that didn't bulge a full inch or so off the shoulder

I have a 4 inch drop. Does that make me slim or fat?

You're not too bright, are you? When you think you know better than the Duke of Windsor, you know you're a slave to the fashions.
