Jeans that don't feel like spandex

    Let me preface this by saying that I don't think I have big, massive legs, but...

    I am having the hardest time finding jeans that fit properly for day-to-day use. I didn't want to post in the "snuggest bulgiest jean" thread because I'm looking for something less snug, particularly around the thighs. Unless I'm going out, I don't want my jeans to feel like I'm wearing something skin-tight so that when I stand up, I have pull my pant legs down because they don't go down on their own. And now with the low-rise, "slim-fit" trend, I can't seem to find anything (boot-cut, straight leg or otherwise) that doesn't feel that way without going up 3 waist sizes.

    Anyone have brand/cut suggestions?

    Try an outlet store called VF Factory Outlet. Half the store is blue jeans and from what i've seen they have every size, cut and shape.

    A friend of mine who has pretty big quads from working out had some good luck with Lucky and G-Star. I thought the G-Star jeans looked great on him, but they're kind of pricey. Good luck!

    I had a similar problem, and found The Gap's "Worker Jean" did the trick.

    You should check out Levi's 549 Low Rise Loose Fit Jeans... you can buy them online or if you don't like Low Rise, try Levi's 569 Loose Straight jeans....they both have more room in the thighs...

    I have huge quads... Ralph Lauren RL - not Polo make a nice wide leg that is not low rise, but not like an old mans jean. DKNY also makes a decent jean with nice big low pockets. I have done the 7 for Mankind, Rock n Republic - Lucky makes a decent wide leg, but I like the button fly in Lucky and finsing a wide legs is tough. Good luck man!

    Surely you jest.

    I'd go with American Eagle, Abercrombie, or Hollister... they usually fit looser, but aren't too baggy.

    muchmorethanmuscle saidDiesel doesn't make jeans for guys with big legs.

    I have problems in that department. I wear a 33" waist and bought carpenter cut blue jeans from Levi's. These jeans are supposed to be quite baggy yet fit me like tight hoochie HO pants. But I don't care. icon_smile.gif


    go to their site http://store.diesel.com/searchResult/realgender/Men/category/Denim/tskay/3FD17CD7/gender/U/c/cat_136/ENE_C/4294964806/ENE_COUNTRY/4295217734/ENE_LV//ipp/1/ipp_old/1/ENE_MICRO/4294964265/ENE_TG/0/ENE_COLOR/0/ENE_COMPOSITION/0/layoutType/1/areaid/2001/m_gallery/4251 and you can choose between slim, regular slim, regular, and comfort. that last category has baggier jeans that won't hug your thighs.

    the link i provided is to their sale page, since i know some ppl aren't big spenders... but u can also select this season's denim at the top and narrow them down the same way with the bottom bar.

    I happen to have a huge ass and pretty big thighs (I should be in rap videos), and a small waist. I find, for comfort, Saltworks jeans are absolutely great (I prefer the Varick Street Boot Cut, myself). Also, I've found that True Religion aren't too bad, depending on the cut. Saltworks are kind of hard to find (at least in seattle). www.swjeans.com is their website.
