Trouble buying Threads
It's finally happened. I am having trouble buying pants. It seems that now my thighs are as big or a little bigger than my waist. Now jeans fit great in the leg but are way too big in the waist or they fit great in the waist, that is if I can get them over my thighs. How do some of you guys deal with this problem? Where do you go to buy jeans?
The store clerks tell me I have the perfect body. Great. Unfortunately, the clothing designers don't think so.

Either get them tailored, or just buy bigger jeans and sag 'em.

I remember reading that old navy has some pretty wide pants with average size waste. Just start looking around at different places for brands that offer a loose fit, they possibly may be able to get the job done. If you do go out and find a company that makes nice pants for guys with large legs let us know, definetly appreciate it.

Yeah, buy wide legs bro. I have the same problem when buying a suit. The jacket size I need (50") only comes with like 44" waist pants and I need a 34". I always buy wide leg pants...otherwise I am uncomfortable. I have heard that this issue is why bber's in the 80's wore those funny tapered sweatpants and panters overalls.

i have to wear a 36" waist when my waist is 32". Just buy bigger trousers and a belt.

Anyways, thanks for the information. Just a little pissed because I bought a killer pair of jeans that cost a fortune only to find out that I will have to pay another fortune to have them rebuilt. Just my preference but I really don't like the baggy look, even though it is in style these days. At 41 years old, I think I'm just a little too old to be kickin' it like that.

Yep bigger size jeans. I think most people around here have that issue. I buy 36" jeans when my waist measures 33". It sucks...

that sucks I hate when my shorts ride up. I go with lucky Jeans-Wide leg. The only thing bad is when you wear a dressy shirt that goes past your waist it look like you go a huge waist. I guess you can tuck it in for that though.
