He might be oozing with the quintessential SWAGGGG that can make or break fits, but it'll still be bad. Your natural aura will affect how comfortable you look in your clothes, but a bad look is bad no matter what. Different clothes are made for different body types and there is no one size fits all solution (well...maybe Yohji is as close as you can get to this). If you're posting a fit on the internet and your body is negatively affecting the fit of the clothes, people will comment on it.

I suppose I agree to an extent, but then a skinny guy wearing a BoO shirt a size too small will look bad too, that's a question of sizing... not of your body shape. Here's the thing though, if you're fat or overweight, no clothes you wear are going to instantly make you look skinny. Sure there's clothes that don't suit people of that size, julius/skinny jeans etc, and I guess in that case it might be okay to bring that up? But I'm still not sure. All clothes are going to look better on you if you're skinny, that's a simple and sad fact. But breezy was wearing pants and a tee, there's nothing unsuited to his body type in that and it's just not anyone's place here to bring up his body shape, even if it is making his clothes look worse, this isn't the place to talk about it and just not a thing that should be commented on. I can accept that it will be commented on, but that doesn't mean it should be.

Nobody here is criticising people's bodies, but rather their choice of clothes to go with that very same body. At some point you should just accept that a certain aesthetic might not work out for your body type and start dressing accordingly.

You can change bad breath, and it's universally accepted as bad. Being overweight should not be seen as 'bad', some people are comfortable being overweight, some people can't help it, not everyone wants to or can be skinny and perfectly in shape, so it's not a thing that should be brought up as it just brings shame and self deprecation.

 

Would someone like to point out what is 'dressing accordingly' for someone who is overweight??

how do i point out you misunderstood completely? i believe the qualifiers that i couched my entire argument could maybe give you a little more direction as to how to understand my rant?

hehe damn now i sure am sheepish talking about myself as a microcosm of the macrocosm

When I saw that snippet in the thread preview, for some reason I was immediately convinced it would be a facetious response to this --

Sorry, but I'm going to point out that this sentiment is a cultural product. Being overweight is not socially acceptable in all parts of the world. In Japan, if you can legally be fined for being over a certain waist size. Personally, I strongly believe that obesity is an epidemic that needs to be curbed immediately.

ill leave the bad breath analogy out.

sometimes people are criticizing the clothes as to their fit on a persons body, and that is not always bad. such as, hey dude, that shirt is not super flattering on you, you may want to try x instead of y. and other times the criticisms are at the very least worded in a fashion that seem to be barbs at the wearers body, nothing to do with the fit. that is where in general, the line has been crossed, imo.

now, sure, there are times when the poster may bring it on himself, and sometimes its a joke between friends that is acceptable, and sometimes a person can couch these comments in a way that doesnt come off bad, but you really have to know where you are stepping and know its cool.

lastly,........... .....THE INTERNETS ARE ARE F EVERYBODY!!!!!!

Woooow... haha.

 

Being gay is not socially acceptable in most parts of the world. Does that make it wrong?

 

Yes, obesity is a problem, if you're massively obese because of a bad lifestyle to the point where it's affecting your health then yeah, maybe you should do something about it. But our culture has been conditioned by advertising and fashion to believe that a human's ideal form is skinny or muscly and 100% in shape but that is just an image that should never be perpetuated, an image that is unattainable for the vast majority of people, an image that brings self hatred, depression and shame and THAT is what needs to be 'curbed immediately', not obesity.

do you think obesity needs to be.....curved....per se?

teeeeheeeee

no hate SVB, none at all!

Being overweight is objectively bad for health. I don't blame individuals all that much though. If you went back in time and established a mickey d in pilgrim times or whatever you would have the same result.

Robot bodies will solve it though.
