(1) choose a fit that works for you now and upgrade (or not) when they no longer fit
(2) hold off and size/buy when you expect your size to say roughly the same
there's no way to accommodate both your current size and where you'll be in the future (assuming you do some serious work) with a single pair of jeans. should be pretty obvious, this isn't magic.

Correct. And, if the jeans do have decent stretch to them in the long run, then fitting now + stretch = fitting then.

Buy what fits.

Is there ever just buying jeans too tight to the point where it will never really stretch enough? Where's the limit of jean stretching?

Yes, there is a limit.



Just because you can do up the buttons (or not) doesn't mean the denim flatters you in the least.

Been reading this site for a while and, after having read quite a bit, am looking to try some raw denim. However, I have a few questions regarding just what will actually fit me.

At 6'1, 195 and having been an avid squatter in the gym for a while, my thighs measure approximately 24.25 inches (using approx. 1 inch below the crotch for measurement). Because of this, I am unable to even pull up most slim or straight leg jeans I've tried on. 501s are very tight on me and make my legs look like tree trunks. I currently wear boot-cut jeans as a means of making due. However, I'm not a fan as they're too baggy and bulky.

Are there any brands you guys recommend for those of us with thicker legs?

if the cut works for you might be worth the gamble for ~100 bucks.

24" thighs aren't ridiculous with your build, you should be good with a variety of the standard low straight cuts (eg, apc new standard) and a little patience. if you're looking for a baggier fit off the bat, try the rescue.

fwiw, I'm 6-3, 210 and (just measured) 25" thighs and the APC NS in 34 worked fine for me, just very tight in the beginning.

Yeah, you don't have "thick" legs per se. Most of your standard slim (and even skinny) cuts will have a thigh of 12.5 (aka 25 inch circumference) at a 34 waist. We sound the same size (I'm 6'1, 190 FWIW) and beyond the skinniest of things haven't had too much trouble with sizing thighs.

In your situation you'll literally need to size your denim based on thigh size. If your thigh measurement is accurate, stick to the 12.5-13 inch measurements provided by charts on the various denim vendors. Should work for you. It will "feel" tight to you if you've been used to wearing veritable bags on your legs, but it will also "fit" you. You'll honestly just have to get over that change of aesthetic and feel.

Almost every brand will have something that works for you. It matters what you want it to look like and what you want to get out of it. Honestly - your measurement isn't a huge problem.
