Exact opposite problem for me. Big thighs, calves and ass (from way too many years of soccer and hockey) make it very hard to find anything that doesn't pull at the groin but also has a narrow enough leg opening that my shoes don't swim in fabric (being a size 9 doesn't help matters). All that said, I've found RL Prestons (with some alterations) fit pretty well or at least decent enough.
To the point about not commissioning bespoke chinos, I was wondering about looking at ordering a pair of cotton or twill chinos from Luxire. They provide a custom pant program that I think I might use. Just take measurements from my best-fitting pair and go from there. That way you avoid the "stigma" of bespoke chinos, and avoid the shopping around of RTW...
