Men - From One Awful Extreme to Another

Yesterday I saw the most ridiculous thing - a not-so-young creature,  in a shirt that was clearly picked out from the children's section, and it was so tight I wondered if the creature could breathe. Not to mention, the overly tight skinny pants which showed the "fullness" of the letter "I" shape.

The creature was a man.

Men's fashion has gone to the other end of the spectrum - from overly baggy, loose clothes - complete with pants falling off the waist - we have now evolved to men in slim to skinny fit clothes. And there is a difference - slim fit I can tolerate, cause it is not meant to be tight but instead is meant to accentuate the man's body.

Men's Slim Fit can be very sexy, if done correctly

Skinny fit in my opinion should be limited to teenagers, still finding themselves, and male models. The end.

Men's skinny fit is not it

This is not a sexy look. I don't think so anyway, so if it works for you and your man, great. The man yesterday was not a tween. This was a full grown homo sapien, with flecks of grey hair, so what were you doing, man?

Slim Fit shirt - very sexy
Like women, age appropriateness is key. The skinny fit look, while great for teenagers and angst-ridden 20-somethings, may not work if you're clockin' 50 - no matter how debonair and handsome you may be. Just don't do it.

Also, I would not wear an outfit that accentuated all the parts of my body I need to work on, so why on earth would a man, not in the best of shape, want to stuff his pudgy bits into a too-tight shirt?

Please, get some guidance on what works for you, size-wise, age-wise etc. Thank you.

  1. The perennial question for me is why anyone would want to wear way tight clothes, even those with a perfect body. Of course it's gross on older people but even on youngsters it looks like someone is trying way too hard to get attention of any kind. Call me a prude.

    1. I guess it varies. But men should just avoid tight anything!!

  2. I'm not into the skinny jean look for men. It's too femme for me.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Stephanie. I cannot fault a slim man for being slim but there are boundaries!!!

  4. Men should use their mirrors. Unless you have a slight frame, skinny anything will look terrible. For instance, former FC Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has always been very slim and his suits reflect that. However, not every man is a Pep Guardiola no matter how much they wish they were. Maybe this is their version of women wearing shoes that are too small?

  5. I agree! Everything in moderation! Although your slim fit guy in the black tee...well, his boobs kind of look bigger than mine, so maybe I wouldn't go with that :-)

  6. More men need to listen to this PSA. Seriously, my eyes are assaulted on a daily basis on the streets of Manhattan with men who think it's fashionable to squeeze themselves into their clothing.

    So. Not. Cute.

  7. Well, you know that there is a definite double standard for men. Here in Hlland, men seem to wear the skinny jeans "okay", but it's really not for everyone.

  8. LOL! I was just talking about...ok, making fun of some guy in skinny jeans. Don't get me wrong. SOME guys can totally pull it off, but (in my opinion) they have to be pretty skinny. This guy didn't fit that mold...he kind of looked ridiculous! Whether you're a man or a woman, I think we just have to remember to wear what works best for our bodies...even if it's not the most current trend!

    Sorry for the long comment! Thanks for visiting my blog today!
