hey man, i have myself a pair of slims from pacsun. and that's exactly my point. It doesnt have to be a name brand to look good. What i'm saying is i wouldn't act like slim raw denim is some kind of timeless style while that others do is trend hopping. Pac Sun and UO generally cater to whatever is popular and "trendy" and the kind of style you're into (slim dark denim, slim plaid shirts and whatnot) is very "trendy" right now for what it's worth. Not sure how it's not trendy on you while it is on people who are thinner than you.
