Can you recommend some pants that fit someone with muscular thighs, wide hips, a big ass, and small calves/ankles? I played hockey and golf growing up and everyone always told me I had the stereotypical hockey/golf butt. I didn't understand what that meant until a few years ago when buying clothes that actually fit.
- I have a 32in waist, but I usually have to wear a 34 because of my butt/hips. This sometimes leads to a super sloppy look, pants bunching etc..
- When I buy pants that are 'tapered fit' or whatever, a lot of the time they are so tight on my thighs/butt that I can't wear them, its like skinny jeans up top and regular pants at the bottom.
- A lot of the time I have to buy pants that are more of a straight fit, which end up being huge around my calves/ankles and have to get them taken in at the peg from the knee down. The tailor I have is decent but it is a huge pain and kind of pricey to keep doing that.
I had found a pair of chinos at J. Crew I thought fit well, then I bought the same pair different color and they were basically skinny jeans.
Tailoring Pants for Men with Large Thighs
For men with non-standard body types, finding pants to fit can be a real challenge. With that in mind, our users shared some places that you can find pants off the rack and offered advice about tailoring.
Go to Jos A. Bank and get the Travelers fit pants.
I have an almost identical build to you, so I feel your pain. In my experience, you'll just have to resign yourself to getting all of your clothes tailored. I've had good luck with some of the Suit Supply pant fits, only need to have the waist taken in a bit and the legs hemmed. Some of their pants also come with side adjusters, which are a godsend. Ermengildo Zegna also makes a great stretch chino, I'm a 31-32 waist and order a 34 which fits perfect in thighs and seat. Incotex makes a great pant, just avoid the extra slim fits and you should be fine. Similar in sizing to the EZ stretch chinos. The Brooks Brothers Milano fit can be a bit hit or miss, but I have had some luck there.
Jeans for Big Thighs - Mens
The same problem exists for men when buying jeans. Our users shared their advice below.
Levi's Athletic Fit have worked well for me.
I have the same issue. Got a pair of Banana Republic Traveler's jeans that are fantastic. They have some stretch in them which helps with the THICCness.
RRL fits fairly well if you want to drop that much coin. I also tried the Jcrew 770 and then had the leg, beneath the calve tapered a bit. Gap is very inconsistent with their sizing so I stay away from them in general. Another trick is that I often try the skinny fit but then size up, for example if im a 32 x 32, id size up to 34x32 to get more room in the leg area.
