I didn't read the whole thread, but I heard that "any man under 200 lbs is a woman".

I cannot take someone seriously if they cannot wear pants properly. It baffles me that they find it comfortable, let alone not realize what message they're sending.

Now you have these twinky "Twilight" werewolves and Brad Pitt is supposedly the epitome of manliness. All people want to talk about is dieting to see there abs when they have no muscle mass in the first place. Unless your a leprechaun, 135 pounds is not impressive, abs or not! Build the house before you paint it! Thanks for starting this thread.
To be honest, ignoring the over-rated physique, Brad Pitt is a pretty impressive in terms of what he does.

I wish I brought some better clothes to uni, I go to classes and wish I could wear something better than sweatpants.

I suppose thats another thing to add to the list. Real men understand delayed gratification. Sure, we could call in sick today and have fun outside, sure we could turn down that overtime, but we put in our time and work hard so that when the bad times come, we can weather them. And hopefully we have enough left over to buy a sweet power rack.
I'm still learning this unfortunately.

Ha! Another one , I too also wanted to be in the shape of Drago when I was a kid. Even now I still do!
Great thread which I agree with

I have this problem and there are two possible solutions that I have found to date:

1. Old Navy Loose Fit. These fit me well, but aren't baggy. If you want looser, go with carpenter jeans. Given a sale, I have gotten jeans here for as little at $15-19.

2. Lucky Brand Style 181, I think. It's a loose and relaxed fit and does well on a guy who squats. Downside is that these cost north of $125, which is why I have tried them on and never purchased.
