Basketball and weight lifting for years. 33-34" waist and 24" thighs. Buy for your ass and thighs, have the waist taken in. JCrew Classic cut will work, but they do suffer from a bit of diaper ass. Black fleece (BB3 works for me, take the waist in)...wait for online sales.

Get epaulets if you can tolerate less pants. Save up for the nicer stuff...you'll wear it more, for longer and like it.

On the diaper ass front... the thing I've realized recently about J.Crew pants is that the waist is cut at a fairly steep angle. I think most pants are higher in the front than in the back, but it's definitely a large drop on J.Crew stuff. So, just pull the pants up in the back, but keep them down in the front (avoid them riding up your crotch) and you'll alleviate the diaper ass. YMMV.

This has been my experience with J Crew pants as well.  Before weightlifting, the urban slim fit looked great.  Now, the urban fit and to a lesser degree the classic cut give me "diaper ass".  The pants look good in my thighs and rest of my leg, but something about how the butt is cut makes my already big butt look even bigger...

 

I think I'll try to get out to the small sometime this week and check out the suggestions: Rugby and J Crew seem to be the options for a mall setting.

 

I also am really intrigued by Epaulet and would consider buying a pair as they seem like they would last a really long time.  Anyone have any preferences for material in the Rudy line?

At the risk of sounding like Drama from Entourage, how big are you calves? Mine are about 16.25, so I stay away from any pants with a 8.25 or 8.5 opening (8.5 is preferable)

The circumfrence of my calves are only about 15"-15.25".  I have some pants with a 8" opening that are alright, but I probably would wanna stay between 8"-8.5".  I think the 40" butt is the larger issue.

 

As an additional side question, I notice that when I sit down my pants always cinch up from the sides of my hips and above my crotch.  This creates a bit of pocket flair when sitting and when my shirts are tucked-in, doesn't look all that sleek.  Is this pretty much an inevitability that people try to minimize, or does the fit on my pants just suck?

Pants hem/cuff length of only 8.5"?

 

You must have small feet for that to look good. My minimum is at least an inch longer.

Ah, I see.  Well, I wear a 9/9.5d in Allen Edmonds if that's helpful.  5'10.5" and 170lbs.  I tend to like the look of smaller leg openings for whatever reason.

I wanted to resurrect this thread now that I am in the same position as the OP. After sorting through it, the best options seemed to be the Epaulet Rudy (not made anymore) or potentially the J crew slim fit. I was wondering if there are any new suggestions. The Epaulet rivet chino has a decent amount of leg room, but I feel could use an extra .25 or .5 inches on the thigh. Is there something out there that fits and looks like the Unis Gio that can accommodate a large thigh. Thanks

Best advice on this thread

lol....Every guy thinks that he has "bigger than normal thighs from squats," but those numbers don't seem abnormally big at all. Unless you have unusual fit preferences, you should be able to find chinos that fit those numbers pretty easily. Just hit a few stores.
