I doubt we'll hear anything more from the OP other than maybe one or two replies (if any). Dude has only 90 posts but has started 33 threads. One of those thread starters who after posting his thread says "Discuss" types.

I actually would welcome the chance to wear a burkqa,at least I won't have to diet and go to the gym to keep in shape.
Maybe not the full head to toe one,but one that covers the neck down.
There is no relationship between clothing size and dressing sloppy. Almost everyone can find proper fitting clothing that is not sloppy. People who aren't doing that are making a conscious choice to be sloppy.

Agreed. It can harder for those who put on weight unevenly, but not impossible. Besides...no one has to stay fat if they don't want to.

If you think shopping for pants is a pain in the butt...finding good doctors and treatment regimes for diseases that can occur is not a walk in the park either. People fluxing issues with diabetes and BP meds...god...that should be enough motivation in itself. Pants are just a mild annoyance compared to that stuff for sure.

It is harder to find clothes when one is overweight. Cute clothes anyway,that don't make you look like a grandma.

No, I have not noticed that.
Some individuals, yes. But they are few and far between.

I'd say most American dress very poorly, at least from my experiences living in KS, CO, and NC. Too many men wear gigantic boxy cut dress shirts, oversized trousers, and wear sneakers with jeans.

So yes, they need a makeover.

The weekends are real fun out here with the younger generation as they seem to think that going out to Wegmans wearing the stuff you wore to bed is acceptable.

And then you wonder why no one takes you seriously.
