Target Needs To Think Of All The Old Dudes

Ever since I moved to Dallas, I've been enamored of Target stores. All of the competitors pale in comparison.
I can usually find what I need and the price/quality are great.
However, there's one area where you fall short: the men's clothing department. Most of what you carry in men's clothing is geared toward 18-25 year-olds. Nothing wrong with appealing to a specific demographic, but us older (and not so skinny) guys are left in the lurch. I am distressed that the 'fitted' look is back because my body doesn't lend itself to that particular trend very gracefully. I look like a stuffed sausage, to be blunt.
Granted, I can easily go to any one of dozens of other places to get clothes, but I'd love for Target to apply that same stylish sensiblity that you afford your furnishings to your men's clothing. And by 'men's', I mean guys in the age range of 30-50!
