    I have a hard time finding ones that fit just right.

    My legs are naturally muscular,however, I have a small butt.

    If I buy relaxed jeans, they fit great in the legs, but sometimes are too loose in the seat.

    Is there such an animal.. tighter in the seat, looser in the thighs?

    I'm in sorta the same boat. I have large thighs so regular fit jeans look/feel weird (pinching my upper legs and the goods).

    I haven't been able to find what you describe. I only buy Gap loose fit now since they seem to fit the best and come in shorter inseam. Finding jeans with 28 or 29 inseam and 30 waist used to be such a bitch.

    You may need to have your jeans tailored but try the straight fit, or the low rise fit, both of those keep the seat of the pants fitted and have a wider leg opening...stay away from loose fit, carpenter or relax, those just make you look like if you are wearing a diaper.

    Wrangler seems the best fit for me, and besides, that's what real cowboys wear. Git along little dogieicon_smile.gif

    Tried some of the expensive jeans and they don't fit any better and Wranglers.

    I can't wear 501s. My ass is too big and my waist is too small. 501s are almost tube-shaped.

    I did find some nice pants last week. They're called Izod 0-9 Chinos and they are the first casual pants I've bought in years that actually fit me off the rack. I have what we in Canada call "hockey butt."

    Actually, real cowboys mostly wear Carhartts.

    my problem is that i am a lean guy with long legs but i have anything but a flat ass, which is not the norm for my bodytype. a lot of slim fitting pants won't work. for anyone out there like me, diesel is a surfire way to go. it's like their pants are specifically designed for that body type - slim cut but with a little something up top to hug a good dose of "booty."

    Denim Tips from the Express Fashion Expert.

    - Jeans might be tight on the thigh at first but with time they will break in. DO NOT WAS YOUR JEANS FOR AT LEAST 20 WEARS OR 1 MONTH. Which ever comes first. You might think I crazy but waiting this time frame allows you to break them in and have them mold and contour to your body. Its just like breaking in a shoe only it takes a little longer. If you wash them before the one month its going to feel tighter than the first time you tried them on and you'll taken even longer for the creases to set in.

    - Keep Them Dark.

    Turn your jeans inside out and Soak Like-Colors in Cold water and 2 cups of white vingar for at least 30 mins. before you wash them. This will help the wash stay on the denim. After the soak, just wash them like you normally would after you drain out the water/vingar.

    - ALWAYS AIR DRY YOUR JEANS! Or use low heat. They will not dry completely but its better for the denim this way. I usually just hang mine up in my room. They will last longer.

    - Srinkage
    All denim shrinks Lenght-wise on the first wash. Be sure to wash your jeans first before having them altered. Otheriwise you might have them shorter than you wanted.

    Hope these tips help. I like my X2's best. Kingston is cool but Blake is my man. =P

    The care and feeding section about jeans seems a little unworkable in my opinion. So, if I need to have my jeans altered, I should...wear them when they're too long for at least 20 days first, as I'm supposed to wait that long to wash them, but wash them before having them altered?

    Things like that make it probably a good thing that I just buy whatever cheap jeans are on sale at the department store when I need jeans.

    if you are going to alter them then wash them first so they will shrink then have them cut. then wear the hell out of them before you wash them again. you just want to star breaking the in the denim. Washing before one month erases the creases and its like starting from scratch which sucks. hope that helps.

    "ewww 501 is so cheap..in Hollywood we wear expensive jeans Replay, Seven etc."

    Well, here in Iowa we're not stupid enough to shell out two hundred bucks for a pair of jeans, but we harvest our crops with machines that cost more than a Ferrari.

    I once tried on a pair of size 38 diesel 'straight-leg' jeans - I couldn't get them past my balls.

    In normal-land, I'm a 32. I tend to buy 34's so they don't feel as constricting on my thighs as most jeans, but generally, pants-shopping is a pain in the ass. The last pair I found that fit me like a glove was a pair of Chaps (not the leather kind).

    Mind you, I was also one of those kids who wore the 40" jeans you could fit 2 people in. Ahhh, those were the days; when being a raver was actually cool, and Randy River was the height of high school fashion.

    haha

    What is a "two-bit butt"?

    Guess jeans are great for length and assage. They fit and stretch well. If you have a low booty, big or small, they won't work for you. The Cliff cuts work great if you have fit thighs but not overly muscular. The Rebel is a straight fit that's better for really muscular legs.

    "Two-bit" means worthless (or worth twenty-five cents, to be more accurate). Maybe it's a Canadian phrase.

    I love D&G... but I'm neither stupid nor wealthy enough to spend $500 on one pair... besides, if I'm going to put that much money into one garment, its either going to be a suit (which I seldom wear) or a very sturdy pair of either western boots or Harley boots.

    I have some Faded Glory jeans that fit well, a pair of Levi 527, a couple pair of Levi 501, a black pair of Tommy Hilfiger jeans, and couple pair of Riders... and I buy these brands because they fit better than the rest and I didn't have to spend more than $20 a pair (got the Tommys and Levis on sale). I buy boot cut for the winter, as I wear boots all winter long here in Chicago... and I buy either loose fit or straight leg for the rest of the year.

    The problem I have with getting jeans to fit... and I have this problem regardless of whether I weigh 160 or 240... is they either fit the waist but not the butt and thighs, or they fit the butt and thighs but not the waist, or they fit the butt, thighs and waist but the crotch is cut too short. I usually find the less expensive jeans fit everywhere better.

    As for care of my jeans, I turn them inside out, toss them in the wash with cold water, and tumble dry on medium. They never shrink, they look and feel comfortable, and the black ones don't fade.

    It is the exact price of a shave and a haircut.
