    Ever since I've started bulking and eating more I can't seem to fit in my old jeans. The problem is my thighs not my waist. But for some reason, trendy brands think that the chicken leg look is in. Is there any particular brand or style that gives me more room in the thighs? (I've tried the "loose fit" at certain stores and had no luck)

    If it makes it any harder for me, I need a 36'' length... I'm 6'5''.

    any ideas from OT?:x:

    have you tried Express or Lucky? I've had good luck with those. Also be aware that a pair of jeans will loosen up some after you wear them a few times.

    well I've tried lucky, those were pretty tight... but I haven't tried express, should probably look into that.

    ya, jeans do loosen up after a few times you wear them, but when you wash them... its hell all over again.

    thanks, I'll try out express today.

    Good luck finding 36 length in stores. I've never been able to find them so I either settle for 34 length or order offline.

    I always buy them with the waist a couple inches big so they dont become stranglers

    Pac Sun. I wear them and love them. They're cheap too. Like 55 bucks for 2 pairs.

    I wear lucky's, the relaxed fit. Normally I have the same issue but these seem to be working well for me. Got em at costco for like 30 bucks, 120 retail :big grin:

    Express has always been bad for me, not bad in the waist but hell on my thighs. :dunno:

    I've been buying a brand called "bullhead" from Pacific Sunwear. Cheaper jeans, don't last as long - but the fit is much better.

    Waist is 33, thighs are maybe 25ish? Not much smaller than my waist, but I don't have measuring tape around the house, i dont think. Let me look around and see if I can find my toolbox.
