"Guy Trebay's article about thinner male models ("The Vanishing Point," Thursday Styles, Feb. 7), struck a chord with me, though a different one than I believe he intended. Rather than viewing this trend as the analogue to too-thin female models, I found it liberating as a 6-foot, 150-pound male who has no hope of measuring up to the beefcake standard."
