Jeans for Guys

I'm running into a little issue here. Jeans that fit my waist generally do not fit my quads (well they do, just not in a comfortable way). Skinny jeans ... well those should just not be in a guy's wardrobe, but these may be borderline. I usually wear Lucky 32 x 30.

Do any of you fella's have recommendations?

    I have nothing helpful to say. I just think it's awesome that men are having the same problem that women do.

    Women in tight pants is an acceptable site though. Not so much with men.
  • Same problem here. Usually have to go for relaxed fit or loose fit to avoid the painted-on-my-legs look.

    No skinny jeans. As a friend of mine said earlier this week, if a guy will go out in public dressed like that, imagine what other bad decisions he's capable of making.

    I have a recommendation.. Build a time machine, and find the idiot who made Skinny Jeans "OK\Acceptable" for "Men" to wear, give me a call, and we'll go break his legs....

    As for what jeans brand, I have no idea now, as I have to buy a belt with every pair or they won't go over my legs!

    I wear a variety, and my wife picks them out. Urban Pipeline, Wrangler, Cinch, Levi's, etc. I wear a 30x36 now.

    I generally wear wrangler relaxed fit typically 1-2 sizes larger. I just setlle for wearing a belt at all times. Better that then having them spandaxed on my legs.

    Most comfortable ones I wear are Harley Davidson. They fit well, enough room for a tall guy like me to bend down and not get a wedgie.

    When I wear Buffalo's I get groped at times, so the females tend to like the fit.

    Levi's signatures are good low end one that are a cross between the two.

    Prana jeans are the jeans that fit the way I want them to. Downside is they're $80/each but well worth the price.

    These are the ones I wear

    I've just gone through this. I ended up finding jeans that fit pretty well at both Gap and Express. I had to pay twice as much as I'm used to paying. They're both slim fit straight style and sit pretty low on the hips.

    ETA: I wear 31x30 in most things. I'm not a very big person. My thighs and hips are proportionally larger than my waist though.

    Yep. I have tree trunks for quads. I also find relaxed straight leg by Arizona (JCPenny brand) works for me.

    Those Ballroom jeans seem to work well for me.. same with the Wranglers that Brett Favre does the commercials for.

    I just came in here to see what was in all the guys pants. Carry on.

    Apparently the answer to that is "quads & glutes."

    Guys - if you're looking for cheap jeans that come in loose fit you might try Old Navy. I always get those for my husband when they're on sale for $19 a pair. I think reg price is still only about $29 or $35. But don't expect them to last more than about a year, especially if you wash them a lot.

    I got my guy some levi jeans that are fitted on the waist but expand out at the thigh and bottom of the leg, still a lil snug on his thighs cause he's got big leg muscles but not uncomfortable and not tight on his crotch or anywhere else and looks good. So there's some good jeans out there for skinny guys with good looking leg muscles but they are hard to find really good jeans for guys just like it is for girls. Stores seem to push those skinny jeans for guys and they are hideous.
