    my ideal body type is that of a swimmers build -- not skinny but not overly huge. toned, slightly exaggerated v-shape torso -- but thats just my personal taste

    models julien hedquist and will chalker (whose slighty bigger) have always had the ideal proportion in my mind.

    Yeah but you all have entire stores dedicated to you if you are a larger person. We don't have "Short n' Skinny" stores [​IMG]
    The problem with Big & Tall stores is that they're generally more for the big-all-over guy than the tall. I'm fairly skinny for a tall guy and there's almost nothing in those stores that fits right.

    I think Gaunts were zombies that ate corpses, if my recollection from the D&D days holds true.

    Yeah, my sisters used to exclaim, "Hey, where'd he go?" when I turned sideways. Clever, girls.

    I actually have a very skinny friend (around 6'2" and 135 lbs.) that used to screw with people by grabbing the skin on his stomach and loudly proclaiming "God, I'm so fat!" Now I'm not necessarily saying making fun of eating disorders is funny, but in this case it definitely was.

    When I'm in stores, I tend to try to follow Asian guys around. A lot of them are nicely dressed, and share my stature. Still, that didn't work out well, because the ones I've watched never find anything either lol

    I thought maybe you were going to say it didn't work out because you came off as some weird skinny-asian stalker type[​IMG]

    Having always been tall and skinny, I have no experience at anything else. However, I always assumed that it would be tougher to look good in clothes if you are short and heavy, so perhaps that is why more of us are interested in them.

    As someone who is on the large side of the medium/large range (5'11", 195), you skinny types should count your blessings. Go buy some size 27 jeans at H&M.
