6'1", a kind of muscular but obviously quite lean 165 pounds or so at last weighing. Basically, I'm built like Allen Iverson (with maybe 1% of his athletic ability). I used to weight 125 pounds a couple years ago; most of my stuff started fitting much much better when I started gaining muscle seriously, and of course I outgrew plenty of it. LA Guy's build is really similar to mine, IIRC; about the same height, and we both have a 39/40" chest, 30" waist.
A lot of it, though, is just that I think fit is 90% of style (at least my style), so I focus on that a lot when buying clothes. The best piece, with the most amazing details, still doesn't look very good if it doesn't fit right. It might be incredible in its own right, but that doesn't much matter if it doesn't fit the way you want it to when you're wearing it. On the other hand, there are people whose attention to fit and body type make them incredibly striking even in just jeans and a t-shirt. I think this holds for pretty much all styles, including looser or more baggy styles. Milspex (on superfuture) wears clothes that are loose/baggy without it looking sloppy, for instance. It's clear that he *could* size down one or even two sizes in some of his clothes if he wanted a "fitted" look, but it's also immediately obvious that he pays a lot of attention to exactly how his clothes fit.
