    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.
