From Andrew Sullivan, this Dutch ad which featured a progressively stripping fat man. Unlike Andrew, though, we don't need "reassurance" that he didn't take it to the limit. Because that would have been awesome. Unfortunately the whole theme of the ad is that the viewer *wants* the model to stop stripping.

I think this only reminds me how much I hate that modern fashion means people wear their pants below the ventre. :( Everyone looks better with trousers at the actual waist, especially zaftig men.

Especially with suits and other formal dress-wear. Suspenders and above-the-waist are the way to go!

Absolutely. It's difficult to try and hide one's feminine body shape and pass as male, but if I have to choose between well-fitting clothes and looking male I will choose in favour of sartorial bliss every time, and other people's ideas about how I must prove my gender be damned!

I long--LONG--to dress my husband in a proper-fitting suit. He himself is a large fellow, even when he hits his target weight he will still be built like a strapping highland lad. *fans himself*
