Hi All, Long-story-short, I powerlift, and therefore, I have big quads/hamstrings. I am a 32W, 30L and I also suffer from the fatal, and often life-threatening disease, no-calf syndrome. I found that Polo Ralph Lauren Classic or Straight Fit Chinos work well, but I am looking for pants that are a bit more dressy. To my fellow squatters, can you please recommend dress pants and/or jeans that fit well for people with an "athletic build?" Thanks WSO!

OK I will preface this all by saying I am a bigger dude (6'3'' ~270lbs) I go to the gym at least 4 times a week but I also enjoy my food, while not a land whale I am definitely larger than average. I spend at least 10-12 hours a day sitting at my desk. In order to stay comfortable I have to buy pants that are a few waist sizes up. However they are still tight around my quad/thigh's this puts stress on the seams contributing to the issues below. My issue is I go through about 1 pair of pants per month. This can come from wear (rubbing against the chair) tearing pockets/seams etc. I have never given much thought into acquiring work clothing. I normally go for whats cheaper compared to what might look/feel better and last longer.

I heard a lot about bonobos but the nice ones are like $175 and not sure which other ones would work What brand&line of pants should I buy under $100 for everyday wear to work (biz casual)? Banana Republic is > $100 as well iirc Link me!

Whenever I walk in my very well tailored pants, the bottoms flail up and look a lot shorter than they actually are. The lengths only look normal when I'm standing straight. This is probably normal, but it really bothers me. Is it the quality of the suit? How do I avoid this? I'm assuming the only solution would be to slightly lengthen my pants, but then they would just be too long.

I'm beginning a new job in a corporate finance environment as opposed to the entrepreneurial one I've been in the for the past few years. Anyone have advice for a place to get good, slim fit slacks even for a larger body type (5'8" 185 LBs - muscular legs, chest/arms/back with some slight belly fat). Any suggestions on places to buy slacks or business casual appropriate pants that have somewhat of a tapered leg and fit well on loafers as opposed to ballooning at the bottom?

I have 4 pairs of wool pants that I wear to work M-F. How often should I be taking them to the cleaners? Should I still be looking to take them to the cleaners every 1-2 months if I'm wearing them every day? I work in NY so I sweat just a bit during the short walk to work in the morning. Thanks in advance guys

Hi-I was wondering if any fellow thick legged guys out there have found a good brand of khakis/slacks that fit you well in a tapered but comfortable way. Before you point me in that direction, please know that I have searched the historic threads and while some of them do try to address a similar issue, the proposed solutions like "try Bonobos" are not going to work for me! Unfortunatley those are still generally too tight in the thigh when getting the waist and length that works for me. I generally wear Banana Republic Khakis but I feel like they are so baggy that they look sloppy. Anyone

For reference: http://www.kohls.com/product/prd-449347/dockers-signature-khaki-slim-fi… It's an equity research internship at a BB if that changes anything. Are those acceptable or are they generally looking for something dressier?

Dress code at my office is Business Casual but are Chinos too far? I have 2 really comfortable pairs of chinos from Banana Republic that are Tan/Khaki and Black but are they too informal to wear on weekdays? I'm incoming first year analyst so don't have a lot of experience here...

Looked up a couple threads but just wanted to confirm for tailored (bespoke-cheap labor in the americas) pants for young IB guy? Pleated or flat-front? Cuffed or not-cuffed? Button or hook? Colors-> black, navy blue, different shades of grey, any others? (How many pants do I need total, 5?) And most importantly, what kind of material? part-polyester, full-wool, cotton? what makes a pant wrinkle-free?
