I think he's looking for pants, not a process.




For the record... 501's never go out of style. Button fly rules.

Try h&m . They have a lot of slim fit, but mixed in you should be able to find long and lean since they are a euro company with corresponding fits.

I have a pair of slim fit jeans. The ones the hipsters wear. I have to tug them to get them over my calves.

They're back again. All the punk skaters have these straight leg, skinny jeans. So, me and the wife were shopping and we saw some that looked "cool."

Cyclists with larger than average legs should not buy them. They're lose on my waist and tight on my legs. Every time I stand up I have to pull them down at the ankles.

I'm 40 gosh darn years old. I shouldn't be doing this.

I like jeans that simply fit and are comfy.
Right now, I'm rockin' some GAP "loose boot cut" jeans. Mostly to accommodate my massive quads.

If you need some comfy pants to accomodate your herculean quads, go for the look that says you just don't give a damn what other people think because you are comfortable and they are stuck in skinny jeans....

Jeans are tougher, but for khakis and dressier pants, you can still buy cheap-ish and get them tailored. Order up whatever size gets you enough room where you need it, then have the waist taken in. That's what I have to do with all of my suit pants. It might cost another $20-40 bucks to do that, but it'll be worth it.

Levi's SilverTab loose or baggy were the perfect fit when I raced. 501s are for big gut skinny legged people. It was hard to find a fit for small waist, big butt, big thighs.

Try shopping at Gap or Banana Republic. They have dress pants that fit me well.
