Look for clothes with elastane/spandex/lycra blends - there are a number of brands from low tier to upper tier pricing that have these.

Depending on the blend and cut of the clothes they will still look smart but stretch instead of tearing in the usual spots.

Usually marketed as "performance" for example RL Performance Polo or Performance Chino.

Such a value add comment from a certified Manager. The fact that you think fat people would go after the same type of clothing as lifters with entirely dissimilar body structures makes me think you're one of those guys who proudly displays your 5k run time on social media.

Such butthurt coming from a guy who probably spends 25min putting on wrist straps, knee wraps, a belt, and chalk just to deadlift 4 plates for one rep.

Aesthetics crew all the way, and I have a 1300lb total at 205lbs.

Yo, I got bulky legs and Eddie Buaer has great khakis at a reasonable price. I actually find that the durability of Eddie Buaer products is also a plus.

Go up a size. Not sarcasm, I resisted for so long and now my legs are free from constant constriction.

For Business Casual, check out:

-Rhone (very comfortable pants, but the design needs improvement IMO)
-Ministry of Supply (interesting stuff; bought a couple of the shirts but the collars are a bit too flimsy for my liking; the suits look like they're worth checking out)
-Mizzen and Main (my favorite by far; have a few dress shirts that are extremely comfortable and look great)
-State and Liberty (my second favorite; shirts are nice and very stretch-oriented, and like Mizzen and Main, easy maintainence. Watch the care though, as they have a tendency to shrink)
-Barbell Apparel (Don't own anything from here, but I've been toying around with grabbing some stuff--they gear their stuff specifically towards lifters)

Happy to help. I love being comfortable when I work (or when I'm out), so I'm always looking at new brands. Will definitely throw some more on here as I come across them.

Bonobos makes great business casual pants for big ass thighs. Buy their Athletic fit and you'll look tailored with room in the legs

Thats what I wear

Bless Athletic fit pants!

Mizzen + Main shirts will work well for you... I wear the trim fit, but you can probably fit into regular. Great shirts, very comfortable (moisture wicking), and stretch when you need them to.

Mizzens changed my life. Feels like you're literally wearing a t-shirt.

Maybe check out mTailor -

Not sure how casual business casual is but when I get big / fat from a powerlifting cycle I tend to think jeans look better. For some reason jeans just look better than other pants when really tight around the thigh. At least on me.

For business casual, when I get too big (usually get pretty fat when I switch back to pure powerlifting), I just work with a tailor. They can do some fancy stuff with waist size, fit, and style that seems to find a happy medium between not too tight around the thigh but also not looking like parachute pants around the calf. I just had this done at Brooks Brothers, so don't think it needs to be some crazy expensive spot.

For shirts, at this point I just keep some around that are bigger around the neck and chest. That way when I fluctuate weight throughout the year, I always have something that fits semi-well. Sucks buying more clothes in the short-term but not stressing about changing size is worth it for me.

Others mentioned athletic stuff. I usually think that looks a little off in the office but maybe I''m not looking at the right stuff. If you're into that stuff, Lulu ABCs are great.
