Apologies if there is a better thread to which this post should be added. I tend to have difficulty finding pants that fit my build (short/muscular). Many slim fit pants are way too tight in the butt/thigh, and often times straight fit pants are a bit baggier than I prefer in some respects. I have a fairly large backside and thighs, but a reasonably trim waist. I generally purchase 32x30 in Levi's denim and in RL straight fit chinos (I have to hem the chinos).
A couple years ago I happened upon a pair of PRL Custom Fit Pants at a Marshalls. These ones, to be exact (but in size 32x30):
These pants are by far the best fitting pants I've ever owned, right off the rack. Perfect silhouette - slightly trim in the butt/thighs but not too tight for me, then a slight taper below the knee. Much better fit than RL "slim fit" or "slim straight" offerings. I didn't even have to have them hemmed, as the inseam truly seemed to be the right length (and not excessively long like some RL pants).
From prodding around online, it seems as if these pants are discontinued. This is a long shot, but anyone know of any deadstock or other vendor from which I could purchase them? I would kill for a few more pairs of these pants!
