  • I was offended by the nude manikins at the World Exchange Centre but then I realized they were not Roseanne.
  • If you get offended by mannequins, you should really just remove yourself from the gene pool

    /not saying you need to kill yourself
    //at least get yourself spayed or neutered
  • An article about people reacting on the internet. That's a cheap way to earn your journalist dollars!

  • I don't care if they have fat mannequins in the fat section.

    I just wish they had clothes that fit me.

    I have long arms and a skinny torso. Medium long short sleeved shirts fit me sometimes, large tall long sleeved fit me sometimes but not. XL and I'm swimming in them, but at least the sleeves are long enough.

    WTFs a guy to do?  Go shirtless?
  • That's not plus size... that's... that's like a 1/144 head on a 1/100 body.
  • The picture appears to be a large man (maybe, I can't tell for sure) wearing boxer shorts and a wife-beater undershirt. Now, Penny's can dress up any body style they like, but this mannequin, dressed in this way (or a similarly-dressed fat guy) would make me want to leave the area, pronto, and serve as a cautionary example about overly-casual clothing choices.
  • Dear outraged people,

    Go find a real problem.

    Sincerely,
    Gyrfalcon.

    Don't men's shirts come in regular and fitted options in the US? Collar size first, then decide if fitted (skinny body) or regular (husband shaped) is required. Or is that not the kind of shirt you're talking about?

    M.O.D.O.K. has a wife?

    In all seriousness, this goes back to the American concept of fashion as a source of role models. No one wants coke-snorting anorexics to be displayed as a role model, but how much better is it to imply it's A-OK to be overweight?

    Don't worry if you're killing yourself with cheeseburgers, we'll just keep making bigger tents to hide your lumpy ass!

    Not if you have a bird chest.

    Yeah, the head and hands just look WRONG.
  • If this helps fat people to stop wearing spandex and leggings, I'm all for it.
  • Do they need bigger gold thimbles?
  • That thing is frightening, not because it's fat, but because... it's frightening. Haha!

    Creepy fat mannequin is creepy.

    My problem is the shoulders and neck. His neck should be hidden under the fat, not just added on top of it. He's like a fat giraffe. And the shoulders, again, are standard muscular ones just added onto the outside of a fat torso... like the cantilevered eyes on a hammerhead shark.

    I have this problem. I found a local tailor that will trim baggy XL shirts down to slim fit for 15-20 dollars.

    Also, check out H&M if you happen to have a store nearby. Found lots of great long-but-slim-fit shirts there for under $29.

    Example:
  • Don't know what happened there. Example: Link

    Yes, they should find models that don't look retarded.

    They typically only go by collar size and arm length. It really does suck.
