    Jeans For Thick Thighs

    Can anyone recommend jeans for someone with thicker (muscular) thighs?
    Sure years of competititve cycling and squats help me look great in shorts, but make it a pain to find good fitting denim.
    Any help would be awesome, bonus points for US made selvedge companies and fits.

    Rogue Territory - Standard Issue
    3sixteen - CT 100

    Both American made with proprietary selvedge Japanese denim. These fits have a higher rise, roomy thighs and tapper below the knee. Both companies provide measurements on their websites. Rogue Territory has the edge on build quality and attention to detail but the denim used by 3sixteen is incredibly soft off the rack. You can't go wrong with either brand.

      On the other end of the spectrum Levi’s 541’s have worked well. For me I either have to size up two sizes (34->38) in slim fit and tailor the waist or go with 541’s. I have had to size up in 541’s once, probably just due to variation in sizing due to their QA. I’ll be checking out these other companies though!

        dearborn denim and Lucky's work for me, but I also have huge calves and generally need to wear straight fit jeans. Anything tapered is usually too tight on the calves and/or thighs... haven't found much that works with both. The Lucky's 441 athletic comes closest there.

          Banana Republic has an "Athletic Tapered" fit that is roomy in the seat & thighs and tapers down to a slim ankle. They mostly sell stretch jeans, not sure if that's what you're looking for.

            I just ordered these in rapid movement denim and travelers pants. In my normal waist size they were like wearing leggings. The taper is pretty aggressive and leg opening was smaller than the slim cut jeans.

              Its tough man. When you're not a natural fit the end fit is WAYYYYY different than the first fresh OTR fit. I mean, pretty much everything but the length changes when you wear the a dozen times. Holy Hell and that's before you wash them. I've had pretty good luck with BR slim fit and Old Navy slim jeans for men, none of their stretch stuff. Its so hard to commit to a pair of jeans when your package is printing, but you have to take it on faith that they will stretch out.

                The jeans I wear most now are a pair of BR athletic fit. I’ve got a 31” waist and 26” thighs. My BR are size 33”.

                  Actual 31" waist? And wear a vanity-sized 33 waist in the BR athletic? Heavily tailored I guess?

                  I have an actual 33" waist and 24" thighs. Can wear some vanity-sized 31s, but almost always buy 32s. Athletic tapered in 32 was a total no-go for me. Too slim in both the thigh and calf.

                    Not tailored at all. They fit fine held up with a belt.

                      I guess it depends on how you like them to fit too. I had on the 34 waist pant and I have 27.5” thighs. The waist fit well, I probably could have gone down to 33 in waist size but the legs were already too tight.

                      I might still go with the BR because the fabric is nice. Will probably go slim fit and size up for the slightly larger lower leg diameter.

                          Depending on your price range.

                          Epaulet Walt fit denim has HUGE top block measurements.

                          Very high waisted but the butt and upper thigh area is big. I lift and they are right on the edge of being baggy there but they fit great everywhere else.

                          They are the anti-Gustin pants. Smallest top blocks in pants.

                            Lucky Brand 410 Slim Athletic. I just discovered these and bought several pairs. They are pretty consistent with the waist and length sizes, especially compared to Banana Republic.

                              How tall are you? I'm 6'3", long legs, and squat ~400lbs or so, and my thighs aren't as thick as say someone who is 5'10". That being said, I can still wear Levi 513 and 512 with no issues.
