In a recent issue of GQ, the Style Guy noted that designers design clothing for a certain body type, known as the "fit model," and that certain designers (such as Calvin Klein) design for a slightly more athletic, buffer body.  Does anyone know (from experience with fit or direct knowledge) what body types certain designers design for?  I think that Hugo Boss designs for a more athletic build, but that's only an educated guess.

I don't quite know what you mean by "natural shoulder" but most armani stuff fits me perfectly and i'm more on the slim side. Boss as well for their casual stuff, I am by no means some big muscly guy but their clothes, with the exception of their suits which i don't really fill out, fit well. It's irrelevant though, I would think most people try on their clothes before they buy
