To me, the taper def isn't the problem. Remember Charly's post on the optimal silhuette for built guys? You want a good taper on your pants if you've got bigger thighs. A straight fit will make your legs look like tree-trunks and will make the bottom overpowering.
If anything, the rise is too low on those pants and the tee is too short. I've got a decent drop with a 42 chest, 32 waist and 34 hips, and I def look more balanced in terms of proportions when the tee goes over half of the bum and wear the pants low / longer rise. The problem with LB's pants is that they sort of carve in at the crotch due to the lower rise. You will get a better shape a la Snowman with pants with higher rise. A boot tuck can also help. Look at Charly and Snowman fits.
Also, wear darker pants as it has a slimming effect.

Where is this post on optimal silhouette for built guys? I need it.

Oh, I didn't know they were jodphurs. Don't like.
It would look better if the taper was smoother and constant down to the hem rather than being that harsh at the knee. That's what my earlier post was aiming at.

Devoa thighs have the same problem Uniqlo and Zamb pants do; wide thigh with sharp taper starting from the knee causes chicken wing silhouette even if you've slim legs.

26" thighs @ 180lbs here. Makes clothing that fits hard to find, especially as it's so often made for rail-thin dudes and I'm definitely not rail-thin.

Yeah I think the only meaningful outcome that has ever emerged from this discussion was the consensus that mrchariybrown (spelling?) does a good job of dressing to this build. To the point where people were skeptical that he was that built, but he had some pics that pretty much discounted that theory.

Look for his fits, might work for you. That being said I don't really like the aesthetic that much personally. But in my case being short in addition doesn't help frown.gif
