Is it doable to resize jeans at the waist? I have big thighs for my waist and right now the only jeans that fit me are the Iron Heart 1955. I'd like to broaden my horizons a bit, but to get comfortable thigh measurement, I would need to size up one size in waist. Can that be easily corrected?
Yes really. I do some barbell weightlifting, and despite the fact that I am not very strong my quads are too big to fit comfortably in most jeans. It's mostly an issue while seating down of course. Most relaxed cuts tapper too fast to the knee. To fit me, the knees really need to be 10+ inches because the quads bulge just above the knee. This is hard to find on a 34" waist (I'm talking about fully shrunk measurements here).
Many weightlifters cannot find jeans that...
Yes, those are all lovely but they are too tight in the legs. I need something with a 34 waist and at least 13.5+ thighs, and 10+ knees. I've found the IH 1955 works. There are probably others but they're hard to find.
