Cayman - Are you not reading the other posts? No one is arguing that someone as obese as Taft will ever look as good as someone with a more normal weight. This is not the argument. You are battling a straw man of your own construction.
The question is what larger men should wear to make them look their best. Your answer is "less body fat". But suppose this is impossible for them or not worth the effort. They still have to clothe themselves.
i dont know how this is not plainly obvious.

well, there have been a few fits posted the past week or so, and none of them garnered any conversation at all, iirc. no thread can exist exclusively on pics, unless that is the sole purpose of it (like the one in SWD). so, the pic of taft garnered convo.
when people become more interested in talking about the fits posted, i think things will return to conversation of good taste as it applies to said fits. just my 2 cents.
To whoever recommended using the camera on the other side of the iPhone (with the help of a mirror), kudos. Now I just have to learn to take a photo using the camera on that side of the phone without twisting my body into a knot.
It's axiomatic that when it comes to women, there is a maximum weight (let's call it the Christina Hendricks weight) beyond which no amount of dressing will do her any good - she simply has to lose weight to look presentable. Men tend to refuse that this applies to us. Newsflash: it absolutely applies to us. You can be as creative as you want about ensconcing that potbelly with all manner of bespoke waistcoats, etc., but you can't put lipstick on a pig. To look your best, you have to shed the belly. How this is novel, I have no clue. And trying to analogize "fat" to "short" is patently absurd. Foo looks fucking great. As does Emperor Akihito. Lloyd Blankfein, the Chairman & CEO of Goldman Sachs, always looks nifty and he stands at a mere 5'5"-ish. Believe me, I've touched by all the outrage being thrown my way, but I'm certainly not swayed. Keep it coming.
Jesus Christ you really are that much of a dbag. I just love the anonymity of teh internets. If you were in my face, though. I'd probably clock you...
The combination of "creepy" and "crappy" to ultimately form "creppy." Largely used as a method for laughing at oneself and as a way of flirting between creppy lovers that met online.
ANTHONY: Want to watch me through your window as I ride by on my bicycle and take photos of your apartment? KELLY: You're so creppy! Come over and crep on me.
