/ Jeans and big thighs help
Does anyone reccomend any specific make of jeans that may help me at all?
Next seem to do ok provided you avoid "starving Emo" fit.
good luck mate i have had that problem for years best bet is go buy some jeans in the US (waist to thigh proportions in jeans seems to be better)
How do Dickies jeans fit although I don't really want to look like an odd skater?
I have similar problems buying trousers and usually end up buying "casual" fit jeans - the GAP ones are very good and not too expensive.
Definitely avoid Levis 501s, for a start - 758 are possibly my baggiest jeans, but I don't think you can get them anymore.
Paul Smith ones are borderline - I wouldn't want them any tighter!
I'm currently sat in Armani, though :-)
Is this a question about 'gear' (ie climbing clothes in which case the obvious answer is to wear something more practical than jeans) or a general fashion question (in which case I'm reliably informed I haven't a clue)?
Dickies fit ok
This is me.
I'm 34" waist but need a 36" jean (with a belt) to make them comfortable on my thighs.
30" waist 34" jeans are snug on my thighs (thighs are 26.5" at the moment)
I'll have to put aside an afternoon and get out shopping ion the high street to see what they can offer :(
it is worth noting that so long as you have awesome looking calfs then shorts are good year round (even at wedding, funerals and job interviews)
> Next seem to do ok provided you avoid "starving Emo" fit.
Agree, Next boot fit and casual fit seem to have plenty of room for large thighs
The Gap standard fit is OK on my thighs. Agree about Next standard fit too.
Less decisively-thighed brother used to swear by Paul Smith. The other, more Hoy-thighed one, said Howies were good.
do you have the same issue with shirts, i find its impossible to buy a shirt which fits the chest without being tent like on my waist

Slim fit is your friend - it's certainly mine :-)
Don't go fitted, as that's a step too far.
High & Mighty?

What on earth does Hoy-thighed mean?..Like The Old Man!
Mr TC is broad of shoulder and slim of waist - years of swimming. He particularly likes T M Lewin fitted shirts, as they have the added benefit of being a decent length too (he's 6'4").
i think the height may make a difference, i'm only 5'9ish but with 12" of difference between waist and chest measurements
My thighs have always been a bit OTT, it does make trousers a problem, I'm about a 32" trouser size but I buy 34/36. Even the calves are tight sometimes. G-star usually fit ok, I've got some 34" hugo boss jeans sitting upstairs never worn because they're too tight on thighs and calves.
