Is slim fit on the way out?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I was just doing some online browsing there and noticed some of the big online stores only have a couple of slim fit items where they have hundreds of regular fit and big and tall.. Is slim fitting dying?  Or am I crazy.

1. Slim fit has always been less common. It is always easier to find something in a "regular" fit over a slim.

2. Conversely, it is possible that the slim fit items sold better and thus, there are fewer left in stock.

Yes 2 good points but I feel like these past 2-3 years slim fit has been much more popular especially with the younger demographic and in Europe. 

 

Your second point is of course a great point but usually they have a lot still on their site advertised.

Maybe slim fit is now more the norm so they don't even advertise it?

I guess the shops will always stock both styles: slim fit is also called 'modern' and appeals to the 'younger generation' as it were. Relaxed fit or 'classic' is more suitable for older and mature guys.
