Suits for cyclist-build

Can anyone recommend a suit brand that fits well for a fit cyclist? Slim-cut suit jackets fit me great, but the flat-front pants on most brands' slim lines (I've tried varvatos, hugo boss red, burbury, etc) are just way too tight for my largish thighs and glutes.

If you're already considering Burberry prices, then why don't you just go with custom tailoring or made-to-measure? It should be in the same ballpark.

exactly

get a custom tailored suit, it will look 5 times better on you than anything off the rack.

Eh....

The lower lever burberry, etc, suits are well under 1k, I don't think you can get a good custom for under 2k. The question still stands though - has anyone found a good line under 1k for those who are wide-in-the-thighs but skinny up top?

Armani. If you happen to look like a male fashion model.
