Maybe Zimmerman knew that exercise was bad for his health.

In other words, had Martin actually tried to run away as suggested by his girlfriend, he would have had no trouble doing so.

If his pants were 38, his waist was almost assuredly much larger. Even for higher end brands, a 38 can probably be worn by a person with a 40 inch waist. Of course, Zimm may have recently lost a lot of weight, making the pant size misleading.

I'm 5'11, 200lbs. I'm overweight. My waist size is 36.
He has to have some gut in order to make it to 38.
Maybe that's why he wears sweat pants?

At Zimmerman's height (about 5'10"?), I think you'd have to weigh about 190-195 to have a 38 waist, and at that weight, you'd have to be suckerpunched to get laid out by a 170 lb. kid. Otherwise you should be able to bear hug the guy and take him off his feet. I'll bet a lot of fathers these days fail to train their sons in the basics.

I think baggy pants are the style among "urban" people but your point remains. GZ looked short and dumpy at his trial and not very threatening. To be honest, Trayvon did not look physically threatening either, but he did look like the type who would attack someone he thought he could beat.

The reason Martin backtracked and went after Zimmerman after he felt "dissed" was because Martin profiled Zimmerman as a "softie".

No doubt he said to himself "I can take this mother fcuker.". If Zimmerman was bigger and a harder built guy Martin would have left him alone.

Martin didn't think Zimmerman had a gun.

It's hard to extrapolate weight from pants waist sizes because different men have different builds. I'm also 5'10" but weigh (slightly) more than 190-195, however I wear a 36-inch waist. It really comes down to the distribution of fat and muscle on a man's body.

Half Sigma, I had to share this anecdote

Witnesses say two men in the Brightmoor neighborhood were so passionate about the way they make Kool-Aid, they started arguing with each other over who does it better.
Sadly, that fight took a horrifying turn when they both pulled out guns and started firing at each other. Again, this was over Kool-Aid.

They didn’t hit each other, but two innocent bystanders suffered gunshot wounds in the soft drink shooting.

At 5'10 and 215 pounds I wear a 36-38 depending on the pants I squat a lot and my thighs do not fit in normal cut pants.

It is impossible to gain any pertinent information on GZ from his waist size. Typical MSM bullshit. GZ looks no more than 170 pounds he was obviously heavier in his younger years maybe he did lose weight maybe he had a belly either way no real info here.

I've lost a significant amount of weight (1/4 of my body weight), but only went down from a 40/32 to a 38/34. Pant sizes can be deceiving. First, if he's lost a lot of weight, it's entirely possible that he didn't buy new pants. Get a belt, and you don't have to. In fact, it feels nice to be wearing larger pants. Second, one of the reasons I wear pants now that are a little too large in the waist is that I have very thick legs. Always have. That doesn't change much with the weight loss. Even if smaller pants fit my waist, they don't fit my legs. Lastly, if you buy cheap jeans, they shrink more. It used to be that I could wear Wranglers of one size but had to go up two for Faded Glory.

@wencil11's comment:

Shortly after James Brown (the singer) died, two guys in Alabama starting arguing over how tall James Brown was. The argument devolved into a homicide.

Some people just don't need much prompting.

Aren't you like 6'3", Will? How did you get away with wearing a 32-inch inseam?

I also wear pants with significantly larger waist size than my actual waist circumference, for basically the same reason. Pants that fit at the waist are just too tight in the legs and seat.

Brandon, I have a long torso. 34's are actually a bit long on me, with 32's a bit short. 34s are harder to find, but for 38's I have to because it will be too tight around the calves otherwise.

I am oddly put together. Throw in my size-15 feet and 7 7/8 head along with the long torso, and pants are almost the easiest of it because I don't have to special order those like I do hats and shoes.
