    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.

    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.
    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.

    Everyone is different... Actually, everything else being equal, someone taller needs more muscle to move the same weight as a shorter person would.

    I’m around the same height as you and squat a comparable amount and have to go up multiple waist sizes for slim pants to not be skin tight around my thighs.

    Just giving my recommendations on jeans. I'll save anatomy and leverages for another time.

    Strength is related to cross-sectional area of the muscle. So two people with equal strength will have similar muscle diameter. The taller person will have a “bigger” muscle because it is longer.

    It seems that as a brand, Lucky is pretty decent for the #neverskiplegday crowd. I just got a few pair of Lucky 221 at Costco for around $30 each that work out well. I also have a few of the Athletic 410. The 221 are a bit slimmer in the thigh and looser in the calf than the 410. My 410's are looser in the thigh, but hug my calves pretty tight (I have big thighs and probably even more abnormally large calves though).
