Assuming said pants actually fit the "guy" wearing them, I shouldn't think he need worry about being thought of as "fat". I wear size 32" x 32" pants, and I'm thought of as being slim. By the way. tommorrow's my birthday, just in case you'd like to buy me something. I have penty of pants thank you, however, I'm a big fan of vintage straight-ahead jazz recordings. I don't normally ask strangers for birthday presents, but it just popped into my head, so I figured, "what the heck".
