On Slim and Straight-Leg Fits

"I always tend to go with slim fits, even on someone who's not necessarily 'thin.' These days people who aren't as fashion-conscious go with a loose fit, but it hides the body, while a modified slim fit generally enhances a frame. I also recommend a heavy fabric if you want a great fit."
