The next time you see an otherwise normal man wearing black odd pants or oversized clothing, consider that he probably is making mistakes for sensible reasons and would make better choices if he knew how to make them. Black disguises wrinkles and many fit problems. It hides dirt, and it makes color matching easier (and accomodates the one, black pair of shoes that many men own, as someone else mentioned). As many know, oversized clothing can make the wearer look larger, and most men want to look big. Also, clothing that is baggy can hide a source of embarrassment for many men, large hips.
