    I went out to buy some hiking pants to replace a well worn pair of Eddie Bauer Mountain Pants. As I was walking to the correct section to get to the Columbia gear of the local sporting goods store, I walked through the sweat pants. You can now get "slim fit" sweat pants. For men. Well, for males, anyway.

    When will this trend die? We'll be seeing slim fit socks before it's over.

    Well, it probably won't even be when they finally figure out how grotesque it realy is. I'm sure it will hang on well beyond that point.

    Are you sure you weren't in the Ladies' yoga pants section by mistake?

    Oh, that's right, they look exactly the same!

    I can understand slim fits for tall guys. Not everyone who shops those stores is thick.

    I fear that this slim fad possesses the horrid potentiality of rap "music". A style I'd hoped would simply fade that quickly engulfed the culture with it's madness.

    We'll be wearing Star Trek unisex jumpsuits before it's all over.

    ^^A unisex jumpsuit/flight suit ?

    That's not necessarily a bad thing. As I recall, back in the day when the alert klaxon sounded, we could jump out of our racks and into our flight suits and boots and be sitting in a B52 Stratofortress waiting to begin our deliveries to parts unknown in 5 minutes or less! Just think of all the time to be saved with the right clothing designs. LOL. ;)

    Not to be too much of a contrarian, but being a smaller, slim guy, I don't mind if my athletic clothing isn't too baggy. If I'm out running/walking/biking, it's nice if my (admittedly skinny chicken legs) don't feel like they have trash bags on them. I don't like using the term "tailored" for athletic clothing, but for me, if they are fitted, I like it.

    But I get it. I abhor the ultra slim, skinny-fit that has inundated every market of clothing for men.
