    I'm implying people who do cardio are in shape. Skinny people who do nothing are out of shape. you wouldn't know.

    Basically you're just visually judging people because of your own body image issues. It's pretty obvious really.

    Why are you so interested in other men's bodies?

    I personally prefer the look of someone who has 20 extra pounds to the look of an average gym meathead. The pumped up dudes in suits are especially horrendous.


    i don't necessarily disagree...

    right, ok, if i notice someone fat and out of shape and looking bad, it's my own body issue.

    OK, sure.

    It is if you go out your way to post a forum topic about it on SF. Just leave it alone, let them be fat and dying, ignore it. you'll feel a lot better.

    Yes you're right. From now on I will only post on SF topics of utmost importance, only life and death stuff, the big questions, such as "Roll 2 or 3b?"

    Hopefully once I start ignoring my obvious obsession with fat people, it will all just go away and I will be able to sleep at night.

    Thanks, I don't have to pay a therapist now!

    Skinny people do look better.

    Do you ever see any fatties parade down the runway?

    But but but, that's discrimination. Anyone who prefers skinny people obviously has their own body issues they are projecting on those around them! How dare they! Won't somebody please think of the children? The fat children at least?


    Ok but back to the topic. Yes.

    Personally, I have always found a bias in fashion towards larger people. I have a 32" waist and that's one of the first sizes to sell out. But there's a ton of 36" and up sizes. And what about the whole 10" spread from a suit jacket to the suit slacks? Ridiculous. But whatever. I don't care what other people look like... until I ride a plane. Then I get pretty critical.

    So I know I might get flamed for this, but here it goes anyway. Every time I see a picture of an overweight guy wearing a really nice suit or whatever, I just can't help but think "that would look so much better if he weighed 20, 30, 50 pounds less". I think this becomes even more evident here on SF where clothes more often actually fit close to the body, so your shape is even more evident, and any presence of fatty tissue is easily detected as a result. I mean seriously, face it. No designer, tailor, or magician is EVER going to hide the fact that you are fat and out of shape. I'm sorry, but that's just the way it is. Yes, some can look better with the right fit and type of clothing and so on. Yes, some choices matter. But at the end, its slightly like polishing a turd - at the end, well you know the rest. Please don't take this the wrong way, I am not trying to be mean. I really am not. But next time, instead of ordering, wait, i mean commissioning a new blazer, maybe invest that grand in some personal training and yourself? Is that a wrong way to think?
    So I shouldn't even try to dress nicely??!! Fuck it. I'm donating my tailored clothes and adopting the douchbag look since I'm a fatass.
