1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

is it even possible to wear looser clothing and be stylish these days?

    Actually, the early adaptors have already moved onto this - looser tops (often deliberately oversized and drapey) with pegleg bottoms. I'd say that the majority of designers have moved on from fitted. Just check out the latest runway collections, lookbooks from small designers like KZO, and so on.

    I see mostly fitted looks for f/w 2009:

    I don't see a lot of loose looks other than Yohji:

    I prefer the fitted looks.

    (If we are going to go back to loose fit, then I am just going to pull all my gigantic Seinfeld-era shirts out the closet and wear those again).

    You're looking at the runway shows for the select, premium brands/designers that mensstyle.com has selected for their website. Not really indicative of fashion as a whole. +1 to everything Chrono said. I'm usually trying to do somewhat looser + somewhat fitted stuff. Slim is always easier as long as you have the build and the pieces. Super slim stuf is probably less widely accepted than somewhat fitted or even kinda loose stuff. Drapey and anti-fit stuff is more high fashion or hipsterism.

    Vanna does have this down, alright

    The A/W08 YSL Rive Gauche collection was possibly the apex of recent loose-fit style, at least as far as tailored looks go

    I'm starting to wear oversized tops a bit more now but I don't see me ever going to loose fitting pants. They just look horrible on me.

    I am the other way round. For me the top must be fitted but I quite like the contrast between that and baggy bottoms on occassion. I think Bobo can get away with a lot of stuff on the top that the rest of us can't because he's tall so things tend to drape on his frame.

    Is that ex-cathedra or are we allowed to debate ?
