I'd actually wager most young men who keep themselves in shape have an 8 inch drop. A 40inch chest and a 32inch waist measurement aren't exactly Adonis levels of muscularity.
I'd rather not belabor the point, but a true 42" chest (i.e. not suit size, but the actual measurement), coupled with a 34" chest is rare (I have been lifting consistently for over 15 years, and have a good sense of what type of physique these measurements would equate to.) To only extrapolate on your point, how many people do you know who truly have 10% bodyfat? I hope you're not suggesting that TF is designing their garments to optimally fit only 2% of the male population (which is dramatically skewed towards the younger, and, by extension poorer)
I now await a dozen responses going, "I have 10% bodyfat, and its no big deal bra." Ahh, gotta love the internets!
