How to wear oversized shirts and jackets

The subject of slim vs loosely cut pants/jeans and tops (I know that's a feminine term, but I'm trying here to encompass shirts, sweaters, and jackets) has come up before, and the general consensus has been that the most difficult (and therefore least popular) piece to wear is the oversized top. However, there's quite a tradition of that sort of thing among some of the Japanese designers (Comme des Garcons, Yohji Yamamoto), and some of the Belgians like Raf Simons and even Margiela have done the same. I was wondering what people's thoughts are on some of the best ways to wear baggier shirts, sweaters, and jackets.

Soft construction looks better for oversized clothes, I agree. Something intended to be tailored looks silly outsized. That's why the doofuses in giant pleated khakis look so bad.

Baseball cap, extremely oversized hoodie (I wear small shirts, my hoodies are usually xl or xxl), jeans or gym shorts, and flip-flops or sneakers/running shoes.

It's a relaxed, unassuming look. Makes me very approachable, as I'm very muscular, and wearing fitted clothes tends to make people shy away from me. Boo-hoo
