    Exactly. I go with either a slim and take in the waist or relaxed fit and slim the leg out. Slimming the leg is a bit easier and you can alter the length while working on the leg width. It also gets you exactly what you want for leg opening, just make sure you're consistent side to side. Altering the waist is generally less work but is a little trickier depending on the pant.

I'm 5'10" 27" thighs, 18" knees and 17" calves and was mostly wondering what leg opening is appropriate as to not cover my Clark's desert boots? My current leg opening sits at 16" but it just covers too much of my boot. I'll post pics of what I mean when I figure out how LOL. Im really just trying to dial in a fit that's not carrot-like but slim enough to just sit on the shoes (sneakers or dress boots) nicely without bunching over and covering up their beauty.

    I agree on the issue with the different finishes fitting differently - despite being 541s, I cant find a pair of the 'tarmac' finish that fits if my life depended on it - they are just too stiff. I think they should consider adding a little more of the stretch blend to that finish.

    I keep hearing great things about Bonobo, but they aren't sold here, and as I indicated, I won't buy something I can't try on

    For Chino's so far I like the BR Aiden fit best (used to like the Bonobos regular fit, but now they are feeling like I am going to split the crotch/same with Uniqlo straight selvedge and Lands End Canvas made in USA straight fit). For Dress pants the Lands End washable wool have worked well (size up one in the waist)

    They are mid-rise. I have no problem keeping them up nor do I have any issues with them looking like low-rise pants.

    Went to Levi's outlet yesterday and finally ... a pair of jeans that fit the 541. I've hated searching for jeans as each one was a massive compromise in terms of style or fit. These are phenomenal and I bought two pairs. The waist on them seems a little generous as I am usually a 32 or 33 and these in 32 still have a fair amount of room. Maybe they will shrink after washing/use? Either way if I can find a pair of 31x31 these will be my holy grail of jeans. Thank you Levi.
    Do you know how the 541 compares to the 513? I recently bought a pair of 513s and they seem to fit decent enough.

    Registered on the site to reply. In regard to the Bonobos Athletic fit - buy them. As an avid weightlifter for a few years, with thighs measuring almost 26", finding pants to fit the thighs and rear-end is almost impossible and being a size 36x36 in pants makes it harder. I tried the Stretch Washed Chinos in Monday Blues and Tuesday Blacks and love them. I even have room in the thigh area. The lower leg is slim however so take note of that. I do believe that the Athletic fit were limited editions (back in February/March) and Bonobos was debating on making them permanent, so sizes may be scattered. Oh and the Athletic fit jeans from Old Navy are AMAZING. They have just the right amount of stretch.

    Resurrecting this one again... I noticed that Bonobos has added an Athletic fit. Has anyone tried it out?
