Re: The built legs pants issue that seems to get brought up here every once in a while

 

I don't know why you guys are so hung up on denim? I find that jeans is the worst type of pants for built legs. The typical cut and material of jeans is far from ideal for big legs. The same goes for most chinos. Cotton pants in general drape very bad, making your legs get an odd shape if you've got big quads / hips / butt. Jeans with some stretch can work, but in most cases you get the too-tight-fit-quads-poking-out effect.

 

Casual wool pants look a lot better on me. It drapes better and looks good in a bigger variety of cuts than denim. A slightly higher rise, generous thigh and taper and you're pretty much set. Linen, drop-crotch whatever or pretty much all type of bottoms with the right cut works better than denim.

I'd be pretty happy to have a nice pair of wool miners chinos or something.. but every company that makes them now makes them pretty slim. I like denim cause they don't produce any pocket flair.

On another not just got done with my 5x5 press today and my press is now at where it was when I injured my shoulder.. fuckin doctor told me I would never press again icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Now my left deltoid stiffens up around the 5th rep on my heavy sets, pretty sure this is because of a weakness though and not mobility because it's getting better as my strength goes up. Body weight press 2013..

The extra fabric on the high tops are nice during band work that goes around your ankle, i have big ass calluses from that stuff but wouldn't if I got high tops earlier.

also fuck-ugly, and uncomfortable

you're on dust. chucks are really comfy. ugly, well the jury is still out on that. I like them best with shorts

I wish they made these wool chinos in a larger fit and $200 cheaper

I've had those in my cart like six times. I dunno tho $188 is a lot for some dumb tech wear fabric.

Denim is a huge part of American culture. I can't imagine wearing t shirts with wool pants.

Any decent pair with the right dimensions should do. I find 11-12" rise and 12" and up thigh is a decent starting position for a size 32-34. If they're pressed on the front you can just flatten it with a steaming session. The ones CS linked to are pretty optimal for casual wear if you don't want to get fashion-y. The flecked fabric and non-pressed front makes them easy to pair with a tee and boots or whatever. Of course, the t shirts has to be basic but not look too cheap. I only wear my charcoal flecked wool pants with black or navy tees.

I think anyone with a bit of tighs would like the Orvis slim fit ultimate khakis, looks slimmish but alot of leg room.

On another note, girl i slept with the other day commented on "how muscular" i was. "Feelsgoodman" to quote fuji. shog[1].gif

These don't have a drop crotch but I have suggested them a while back because they have a longer rise and healthy thigh/butt area.

I tapered mine a bit to get a nice slim fit.

I'm selling mine though because I've outgrown them. Need to get a new pair!

I agree. I had a couple of pairs of flannel pants made for the winter, and they are the most comfortable pants I've ever had. Been wearing my denim a lot less.

Damn, last three weeks I've thrown up paused bench PR's for 2x5.

300, 305, 310.

Going for 315, 2 x 5, next week.

Shooting for a 3x3 paused bench PR for 330-335 by the end of this bench cycle.

Casual flannel pants are what I wear in winter in addition to cords. They're comfortable and warm. Denim has never cooperated well with my thighs, not to mention that I hate denim and don't own any.
