VictorSF was muscular. And I'd say his clothes and fits were among the best. I believe there was another athletic guy of Polish origin in the early days that looked great as well.

The reason average body types (I'm in this spectrum regarding height) tend to look best in clothes is because RTW clothes are tailored to those specifics. Since the majority of people purchase RTW suits, it's only natural that they will fit the average man better than someone outside the average zone.

But when/if going bespoke, I'd choose 188cm height and an athletic build anytime in front of 178cm and a thin body with narrow shoulders and a flat ass.

I don't think all people find the taller + more muscular the more attractive/aesthetically pleasing generally speaking, even if it's "ideal" and "proportioned" theoreticals. I think more people find it more attractive than otherwise, and then culture exacerbates that ratio, iyam. A lot of it has to do with culture of masculinity and so on, because certainly not everyone prefers taller women, or even "fuller" bodied ones, but are probably reinforced by media to see those things as the preferred ideal, to at least like it more than they might naturally be inclined to.

 

I do kind of think 5'10 to 6 is probably the ideal height I personally want to be, but perhaps I am biased because I am that height, but I tend to think of people not of that height to be either a bit too short or too tall. Again, that's probably because of my own height, but maybe not completely.

I always thought 6'4" and 210 was the ideal wink.gif
But seriously, i think t is more about proportion. When I was much younger and skinnier it was very hard to find clothes that fit well and consequently hard to look good. I could only ever buy suits as seperates, which was limiting, and even then I was too thin for my height to look good.
However, I had the same problems when I was 225 - chest and shoulders disproportinately much bigger than waist and hips (although I did prefer being that size).
Which brings me back to my original statement. *tongue firmly in cheek*

The brain? Mine is rather tiny, so maybe I don't know what you mean? wink.gif

Amusement parks? I've been tall enough to go on all the rides for years now.

Even with bespoke, those who stray too far from my suggested dimensions tend not to look as good as our archetypal, skinny, tallish man.

Cordwainers. Because they have to understand the way the sole of the shoe interacts with different walking surfaces, they are intimately familiar with the maintenance of such surfaces.
