Really?

 

I think he looks very good.  Fat for sure, but he looks very good.  And I do think its harder for fat men to look good.

Desu is immaculate. The only thing worse than Tumblr, which has created a generation of 're-bloggers' who can't conceive of a single original thought, but merely re-post the work of others, is 'Tumblr haters', whose sole mission in life is to snipe at the few who dare to 'create' on Tumblr (really no idea why Desu is even on Tumblr - virtually everything he posts is original). Oh well...

I don't like the idea of praising people who work in the industry selling what they wear.

Care to expand on this? I'd rather see people putting their money where their mouth is, and people selling what they wear tells me they believe in their product. Rolling a Benz when you sell BMW would be a huge red flag to me. I understand you are referring to the fashion industry, but you get my point.

I think what PB is saying is that these pictures that vendors post are essentially advertising. And he doesn't like the idea that we praise their ads, particularly if they don't really look or smell like advertising, but rather like "content".

Exactly. In general I am much more impressed with "real" people who have style. While these guys are mannequins for their stuff, whether that stuff is good or bad I just feel less inspired by it.

I see what you're saying. I still respect them for making their clothing work for their physiques though, instead of having some 4% BMI Magic Mike rep their stuff. We get to see what their clothing looks like on someone with a more natural build, which for many people is a better comparison. I am, however, glad to see that Victoria's Secret doesn't subscribe to the same type of plain Jane advertising. So I guess it's all situational.

+1. Same for Marzotto.

I have a hard time following that logic. If I try to sell apparel, my clothing is less worthy of looking at (or praising).
