Those pages usually cater to quite young guys, and / or guys that are into fitness. Everything they wear is too tight.

As for the clothes, usually its the same aliexpress junk that's 3 sizes too tight. Same models that do the modelling for those websites.

Sad story: The other day (black Friday) I was at a local menswear shop, and some young fella was trying on some suits and shirts, with his GF close by. He put on a beautiful navy suit, and white shirt - the fit was dead on.

But then he started: "This is just too big for me, do you have a size smaller? Also, I'm swimming in this shirt", and he demonstrated that by pulling the shirt out like 2 inches from his body. He wanted it to be skin tight.

The salesman politely pointed out that the suit was a very good fit, and that if he were to go smaller, he'd get problems with various parts of the suit. And if he were to go with a smaller shirt, he wouldn't be able to button the collar.

But no - he really wanted to go smaller. So he puts on the next suit and shirt, and it of course looks too small. Jacket is creasing everywhere, pants are so tight that they don't hang, shirt won't button up at the neck, and creasing.

"Perfect"

And then they went to the cashier.
Yes, well, but his girlfriend probably thought he was the dog's bollocks. Which is all that counts, innit?

I never liked the sprayed on shirt look. It just looks uncomfortable and awkward even if you've got the frame for it.
I sometimes think it's all a clever ruse to use less material.

The correct response whenever the GF or Missus gives it the thumbs-up is to recoil in horror. I've yet to meet a lady who knows how to dress her man. But I live in hope!

Not sure. Women have twisted minds.
There have been studies stating that women deliberately feed their husbands to become fat and unattractive to other women.
Making him buy a suit that doesn't fit might be something similar!

There is some truth in that I think, but also men can play that trick too.

There definitely is some truth to this. Aeons ago, in another lifetime I ended up in Brazil for a summer on a University break. Naturally, I wanted to spread my love around but I managed to be entangled with this slightly older Brazilian lass with the usual body trappings that confuses a young man. What was particularly interesting was that we were at it like rabbits, multiple times a day; often, she the instigator. Weeks passed and this continued and on one occasion, I met up with an old class mate and a few locals and they told this was the Brazilian woman way, give you as much sex as possible with intent to 'drain you' so as not to spread your wings about and on the rare occasion you did, due to sheer exhaustion, you'd inevitably suffer from performance issues!

Sex is the national sport of Brazil, everyone's screwing everyone. Strangely enticing at first, but ultimately a dead-end with all the baggage and the problems they have taking to much colder climates. Not impossible, but definitely not worth the risk.

When you say 'usual body trappings that confuse a young man', do you mean sausage & beans? One can't be too careful in the tropics.
Ha! Nah, just the infamous Brazil female form. Well, this was ages before they took a stronger interest in sugar and as a result, metabolic disease.
