Does anyone wear jeans comfortably?(7 posts)

Does anyone wear jeans comfortably?pitt83

Since I've gotten serious about cycling, my jeans don't fit. I'm between size 34 and 36 waist. The 34's fit OK in the waist, but my overdeveloped thighs and butt won't squeeze in. I've tried the relaxed fit, regular fit, etc and nothing works well. If I go to a 36, my legs and a$$ will fit, but the waist is HUGE! My belt is like a constrictor.

Any help?

I'm sorry, but pleated pants don't cut it for casual or working around the house.
go to a Levis store and have them custom cut a pair (nm)RemmingtonShowdown

Try "Lands End"Howard2

I've found that Lands End jeans fit me better than Levis.

www.landsend.com

They have four styles (I think I use the relaxed fit 34" while in Levis I wear 36 with the baggy waist you mention).

Lands End also has a custom fit jean for $54 - that's more expensive than "Off the shelf" sizes, but the fit is guaranteed (refund your full price if you don't like them). Might be worth it?

.. but jeans by a company called "Mavi" (can be found in
NYC distributor in Manhattan, urban outfitter dealers, not
too sure where else) seem to fit quite well. Pricey, but
they've definitely lasted these past two years.
A couple of optionsinnergel

1. Lucky's, style #91. These are their relaxed fit version in the long length. Kind of pricey, but fit great and are very comfortable.

2. Ralph Lauren - Hayden cut - can be found on sale at Dillards/Foleys for $30-40/pair.

Both of these fit me perfectly. And if I remember correctly, we are roughly the same size 6'5" and 220lbs or so. My problem is length, but the thighs in both these jeans are plenty large.

Another option is to look at jcrew.com. They have a jeans selector that will show you the different cuts. jcrew jeans don't fit me very well, but jeans are like saddles. Everyone has a different preference.

Or you could always look at some work pants, like Dickies or Carhart. They should be plenty durable for around the house work.
Good ideas all, thankspitt83

The Lands End or Ralph Lauren options hopefully will find something.

I knew I wasn't the only one in the crowd. I wear pleated to work just because they'll actually fit without binding up. I heard Emmitt Smith's thighs are actually bigger girth than his waist.

I got more back than J Lo, I guess. I should probably ask her and check it carefully ;P
