Pants with a similar fit to Express Producer Pant

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have a couple of pairs of the low rise Express Producer pants and they fit me real well, especially in the crotch. What other brands/pants would have a similar fit? I am trying to buy some upper echelon pants and am wondering which particular brand/style I should be going for. Do other designers produce similar fitting pants and where can I find them?

Seriously, there have to be other pants that fit similar to EXPRESS!!

haha I agree with that

For cheaper pants I prefer to get from benneton/ sisley they're decent if you get them at outlets, a bit more euro cut

In general most pants that fit well off the rack for me are theory, hugo boss, j. lindeberg, dkny

then there are the more expensive ones which I usually tailor quite a bit since some are a fuller fit, but i usually go to outlets designer discount stores to get a steal for them and pay a little more for the tailoring.

Casual pants don't really get too high in price. Try some brooks brothers Milano fit chino's

http://www.brooksbrothers.com/men/chinos.tem 2 for 139 $ and i'm pretty sure they will be better quality than express.

I'd be interested in finding some trousers with a similar fit, as well. The Express Producer pants fit great, but I've always been wary of their construction and long-term quality.

Seriously you guys? I used to own a couple pairs of those back in the day, long long time ago, and the overall look was HORRIBLE. Yeah, sure, modern on top, but wide and straight below the knee, they look fucking horrible. Wide wide opening on the bottom, like they are made to wear with huge clunky square toe kenneth coles.. UGH. I have horrible memories of them.

Composer, Thanks for the recommendation, I will definitely check them out. Flambeur, The look may have been horrible for you. Unfortunately for me, I have large legs and my rear sticks out (not stocky either). The fit in the crotch area works for me and it doesn't look bad with my frame. If you have any recommendation for slacks that will fit someone with a large butt (depth, not width) and muscular legs, I'm open to suggestions..

I have to agree with Flambeur on the fit of Producer pants. I have fairly developed glutes and quads and the producer pant with it's low rise and straight leg just looked funny. My ass was accentuated by the low rise and the pants were fairly tight against my quads. The worst part was the completely straight leg cut (tapered cuts work the best) which caused the leg opening to be so damn big. Completely drowning my newer non square toe shoes.

You're much better off with chinos or pants from Uniqlo or J. Crew that have a tapered leg. Incotex/Mabitex would be ideal if you can get your hands on them.

I haven't worn my 3 pairs of express producer pants in over a year now.

If you are looking for something lower priced than Incotex, I'd look into BB Milano fit.

I have an ass that sticks out and muscular legs, and they still fit me perfectly even though the overall look is slim and straight.

Whiteslash,

I'll check out J.Crew as well this weekend.

I've always had trouble with my larger glutes and quads. Don't get me wrong, they're not huge, but I will never fit in those "emo" pants. I've been wearing Lucky slim bootcut jeans since I first discovered them. Depending on the specific cut, most fit me well and minimized the size of my rear. So, I tend to look for similar styles with pants... low rise, slim in leg. I'll admit that the producer isn't a perfect fit, but it's what I found initially.

That's why I'm looking for a similar style, specifically up top. You guys would know more than I would. That's why I'm looking for help. I did a search, found this thread, and figured I would bump it instead of starting a new one.

I'll rephrase, What's a good fit for "fairly developed glutes and quads" in slacks?

Thank You!

Flambeur,

Thanks for the tip. So I have two recommendations for BB Milanos. I've never heard of Incotex, but I'm going to look into them. May be out of my price range though if Milano is the cheaper of the two.

You guys are really helping me out and I appreciate it.

Incotex are usually in the $300 - $400 range. Very inconsistent in fit too (in my experience).

Well, $300-400 is out of my price range. Looks like a trip to BBs and J.Crew for me this weekend. Maybe if theres a sale on Incotex, I'll try a pair out. Any other advice is welcome.

I wasn't able to make it to J.Crew, but I did check out BBs. The chinos fit a little snug for me, but they were better than the Express pants. I ended up trying the Garbardine / Tropical (not sure which) and they seemed to fit in the rear. They were flat front and the employee handed me the slacks. Are there any suggestions for a dressier slack that is similar in cut to the Garbardine / Tropical? I'm going to have to pick up some slacks for work. Should I go to J.Crew and check their slacks out? I can't afford $200 pants yet, so price is an issue. Thanks!
