I'm pretty stout through the hips and thighs myself, but I have found some RTW pants to fit. I also have short legs and long body, so I usually go for a higher rise to balance it out, otherwise I look like Dorf on Trousers. In my experience, Inco's are all over the map with respect to fit. Even within the same season I've found what appear to be the same model fit rather differently at different retailers. I have 2 pairs of cords that I really like even though the fit is not consistent between them. As you can see, the red ones -- purchased from Saks in the post-TGiving sale -- fit slimmer than the tan one, which I got from SierraTradingPost (which may still be available). Both are 36W, hemmed by my tailor to fit my stubs. The red ones are more tapered and are a bit slimmer in the hips and thigh as well. A few months ago, I was looking to make use of a Land's End gift card I had and was pleased to find that their chinos fit me pretty well. And are inexpensive. These too are 36W, but are pre-hemmed and with a large selection on the rack, I found a pair that were sized short enough.
