    After 2 1/2 years of being in this house, I am about to go back to work in an office. So I went out to buy new clothes...clothes that fit now that I have dropped all the cancer weight....I went to get new undershirts and...I think it is the Calvin Klein brand...has something called "modern fit." What is that?

    My first thought is that it means "fat" since so many people nowdays are overweight. But on the CK site, it looks like it might be just the opposite...a slimmer fit....something between "fitted" and "regular."

    Does anybody know?

    Yes, the modern fit is slimmer than the regular fit. In the link provided below, one person found it to be situated between slim and regular, while another found it to be slimmer than the slim fit.

    I would assume it to be in the middle of slim and regular, kind of like how the Ralph Lauren custom fit polos are between their slim fits and their classic fit.

    Thanks for the info.

    Well, whoever came up with marketing idea of "modern fit" blew it, cuz I thought it meant larger, since, as I said, I tend to think of people nowdays as being fatter and bought another brand to try. I think I might still need Large and Regular cuz of my chest and lat size. I dont want a shirt or undershirt that cuts in at the armpits....especially in the office all day. But I will buy a package of modern fit and see.

    Sounds like a marketing ploy for appeasing to a person's ego.

    I've seen "athletic fit" also, for dress shirts. Those tend to be narrower at the waste, and slightly wider across the back/shoulders. Ya know.. to accommodate the awesome V-shape lats on some of you guys. ;)
