For people with muscles in their thighs, I found it a bit unbearable w/ certain fits. In the pic above, that looks uncomfortable.
If you have no choice, just tough it out.
For me, I had to get my right size. I initially went with a 33, but later switched to a 34. The 34 New Standard has fit me quite well. I am sure, after the wear, it'll be comfy and carry more of a relaxed fit.
But if that's your style, stick with it. WHO CARES what people say.
