I really think it's the angle, as my shoes do not look huge in real life. I'll see whether I can take a better picture one of these days. The thighs can't be any slimmer though, as my quads are simply too big I contemplated working out my legs less in the gym, because most RTW pants are getting to be either too slim in the thighs or too wide in the leg opening and waist. But that would be ridiculous, I don't care about clothes enough to let them dictate the shape of my body.
Ah, I see I'm not the only one who's had that issue. That's what lead me to try Luxire's pants after wasting money on altered off the rack slacks. I don't know who some of the makers have mind on these pants sometines. I've had the same issue you described with some expensive Ben sherman pants I tried and the exact opposite with JAB where the thighs are saggy and the waist is way tighter than it should be.
I'll never buy off the rack trousers again if I can get them made by Luxire. It's the worth expense and time involved. Ive even had lower back issues due to poorly fitting pants.
