Jeans Questions

    It seems most guys these days have skinny legs and most of the trendier jeans seem to fit that body type. I love to work out my legs and have a big ass and thighs to prove it. (26 inch thighs and 34 waist) But I also like to wear nicer jeans like Diesel and True Religions. Problem is, where my thighs are the biggest, the jeans always rip in the same spot right below the crotch. I'm tired of spending couple hundred dollars on jeans just to rip them.

    Do any of you other guys with a decent size waste but bigger legs have this problem? What brands/styles do some of you know can be more accomodating to my large ass?

    Thanks for the help.

    D&G
    Guess?

    ...the former is popular with Arab men with big asses, a Lebanese favorite, actually. I hope they do sell the same stuff in the US and in the Middle East

    ...the latter is just a mere Guess? icon_razz.gif

    goodluck. xx

    im like you.. get a different cut.

    find a cut that's tight on legs, with a baggy crotch ( but not too baggy)

    I know what you mean regarding the ripping in the legs.
    I wear Levi 505s and the legs have always been tight.
    I think some like 550's are baggier, but that look is not what I'm comfortable with in the least.

    Sometime I'll just have to try on a number of jeans and see what works.

    I have the same problem. It seems like jean legs are getting skinnier and skinner.

    I used to love deisels, but I just can't work the leggings look. I am a pretty strict G Star fan. I wear nothing but G Stars. Some of the styles are thin, but you can size up without them being too baggy.

    There is an Outlet north of Austin. You can get them for like $50

    Levi's are also usually cut for real people.

    Not much luck here finding jeans that fit - maybe Polo. My legs and thighs are big - from years of H20-polo, riding my bike, running & tennis. My waist is 32/33 so like a lot of you guys - what fits in the waist doesn't fit in the thighs. Know what? I end up wearing Polo cotton khakis or cargo shorts most of the time when I'm not wearing suits for work. Most jeans aren't comfortable on me.

    I seem to have the same problem for the opposite reason! I'm tall and skinny and I can't find jeans that fit. I used to buy only cK because they made a size that fit reasonably well. Now I've resolved to buying cheap jeans that are close to the right size and end up lookin' like slob.

    USE to have the same problem. Huge ass, nice waist size, and big thighs. It took me forever to find a decent pair of jeans that worked for my figure. I've tried everything (a high school/ college kid can afford) AF, Hollister, Aeropostale, Express, American Eagle. But it wasn't until last year that I found (of all places at JCPenney) Levis 527 Low Boot Cut. They have plenty of leg and ass room. I bought 5 pairs.

    But of course AS SOON as I found them, I slimmed down some and now I have to replace ALL my jeans with a smaller size. So I now have another few weeks of jeans hunting to go through.

    As for the more expensive type I don't know. There aren't that many places like that around Montgomery.

    I am well known for the size of my rear end, and from a seasoned expert on jeans I have found that Abercrombie jeans have a good amount of room, but they aren't good if you are looking for a very cleaned tailored look.

    I have a lot of Guess Jeans. They seem to fit me really well.

    Its sad that I find myself buying jeans to fit my rear and not my waist. I don't think I own more than 2 pairs of jeans that actually fit on my waist.

    As a member of the beefy quads and ass family, I run into the same problem.

    I've had great luck at the Buckle ... Before you scoff, I must say that they have some cuts that fit great on the quads and butt without feeling like your legs are going to bust out the seams.

    Truth be told, I wouldn't have thought about going there until I saw some guys with the same build and asked them where they found their jeans. Whenever I'm in the store, I see guys with builds similar to mine, so I figure if it works for them, I should be able to find something that will work for me.

    Yes, clothes are a problem in many ways. I've been frustrated by the same problem and just gave up on having jeans that align with current trends. I've gotten good use from a pair of Levis 569, raw finish. They almost look hip. And I bought a pair of Banana Republic Relaxed Fit, Straight Leg jeans that are snug. But snug is better than impossible.

    Shirts are also a problem. I need 2XL for upper body--but not for my waist. Some shirts I try on end up looking like circus tents. Blech.

    How is it that America has an obesity problem but high-end jeans are only made to fit skinny guys? There must be some economics gap that I'm missing: the market would certainly provide this product if it were profitable.

    TX: Personally I'm in the skinny leg category so I can wear the True Religions with no prob. But my bf was a former figure skater so he's got a really full, beefy ass and legs too, and his favorite jeans are Diesel. You just have to go to the actual Diesel stores to get a proper fit, as opposed to a small retailer or even the Department stores.

    They really know their stuff there, so if you tell them your issues they can find the jean for you.

    Not sure if there is a Diesel store in Dallas, but many major cities have them. You might pay more for a perfect fit, but hey it's your body so I say it's worth it. Good luck!

    I've got really solid legs as well so I tend to prefer Diesel (but you do HAVE to go to the actual store or Nordstrom's to be properly fitted. Also, A&F jeans are actually really good!! And just for BS sakes, I'll do Old Navy baggy/relaxed fit...

    Have you tried Seven-For-All-Mankind? In Houston I have seen them at Macy's, Nieman's and Nordstrom. They are slightly cheaper than Diesel ($130-$200).

    They are (in my opinion) the best looking jeans, but I can't wear them because I am too skinny icon_sad.gif

    Good luck!

    Thanks for all the good suggestions. I knew I couldn't be the only one frustrated by this. Seems all the gay guys in dallas like getting skinnier and the jean styles are following them. So along with not finding jeans, I can't find a decent sized date either icon_lol.gif

    Sevens - I haven't ever found a pair that will go even above my knees.

    Abercrombie - Yes good jeans that do fit. But they don't have that tailored and nice finish for nice evenings.

    We have a True Religion store and a Diesel store. Diesels so far seem to be the best option. They fit and I wear the hell out of them before they rip, but they still do. Frustrating for spending $200.

    Shirts are easy. If they are not already athletic fit, I have found an awesome tailor to get them darted from the shoulders down.

    I'll look at G-star and some of the other suggestions on here. Thanks.

    The dark wash Abercrombie jeans aren't too destroyed so you can usually get away with them if you're going on a nice night out. Personally I recommend the Kilburns (they're the best with accomodating the rear...haha)

    D&G jeans fit the best.. but at $400 a pair they are pricey.. perfect fit though.. always... also I love the way Neil Barrett jeans fit.. not sure if you get them in the US though.

    If ya got junky trunk I would stay away from the True Religion flappy pockets. They don't flatter big booties and just cover up what everyone wants to seeicon_razz.gif

    Levi's capital E brand jeans are nice as long as you don't choose a skinny leg. Each pair is handmade, but they are a classic. You can get them at Barneys, Neimans, Bloomingdales, Nordstroms or a Levis store.
    If jeans look "too designer", you can sort of look like a douche. I paid 450.oo for a pair of Gucci jeans and they just made me feel like an asshole.

    I am not sure what brand these are, but they look like they could fit a larger thigh.

    We really should have an RJ camera phone big-butt scavenger hunt. Extra points if you find one in double-knit polyester!icon_lol.gif

    I've never been one to buy the major labels for jeans. I'm long waisted and have short, thick legs and no behind. My favorite jeans are from Eddie Bauer. They fit nicely on the leg and aren't too long on the rise. Of course the seat is baggy, but that always happens for me.

    While I love low rise, I don't really like the skinny jeans. I'm starting to have the same problem. The waist fits but the jeans are tight on my thighs.
