Wool Pants Wearing Out Between Legs - Page 2

I am a great, big, fat person. During those rare months of supernatural self-restraint, wherein I trade Taco Bell for Chick Fil-A, I manage to lose a meager bit of water weight, and I delude myself into thinking it's significant fat loss. Please permit me this comforting fiction. It is all that keeps me from the brink of total binging, drowning my self pity in a sea of the Colonel's special BBQ sauce.

 

Help me find some pants for the generously proportioned gentleman, won't you?

Color me a bit surprised we've had no George Costanza references in this thread thus far....

Also: have the tailor keep some of the original cloth for you. Then, when you do wear through the trousers, you can have it patched very easily.

Thanks everyone!



Obviously as everyone says two pants are a must. Also ensure the tailor uses either a silk or cotton drill saddle, I think silk works better as it lets the legs slide therefore reducing wear. Its important not to get to fine in the cloth you choose. Dont get confused between fineness and weight. Something around super 100 and 9-10 oz will be fine. Definitely avoid anything over 130s and under 9 oz. If it is conducive to the style you want a pleat will help enormously as it allows more volume through the troublesome thigh region.

Other than that enjoy the bespoke experience

It would be great to have extra pants with every custom suit you have so it wouldn't wear out easily.

Actual Translation: He does squats and deadlifts, and has a proper gym routine. He is not a "bro" at the gym, and does more than just chest and Bi's.

I'm sorry you are intimidated by guys who are not afraid to do a proper leg workout.


For the OP, I have the exact same problem and it is much easier to go the route of getting more pants made for the suit. I also found bespoke/MTM is the way to go for trousers and or jeans. It's annoying having to buy a pair of pants 2-3 sizes larger and having the waist taken in just so you can fit your legs into them.

Or he was born into a family cursed with large thighs and butts, and doesn't care to spend his time doing exercise that specifically eliminates that, but instead is into running and cycling, which can magnify the issue.

 

I'm not speaking from experience at all, of course...

Haha... I like the direction this thread turned.

 

I love squatting, but my favorite lift is definitely the deadlift.  I'm a huge deadlift guy.

 

That being said, I do naturally store more fat in my butt and thighs.  I'm hovering around 10% body fat these days and the majority of that has to be in my upper legs.  In some ways it's good, though.  I have abs at a much higher body fat than most people since I don't store the fat in my stomach.

You do not need to apologize, my friend. In truth, it is a fear I have harbored for decades. I don't always get intimidated, but when I do, it's at the sight of a pair of properly worked-out legs.
