Forget the skinny as men's labels beef up the runways

I blame Marcus Schenkenberg for many of my body issues. He of the muscles that seem to have been cast from Michelangelo's David. Practically naked in the Versace ads of the late 80s and the early 90s, he made me want to hit the gym to bulk up. I was in my teenage years going through a growth spurt that left me all skin and bone, with no hope.
