Man the hip flares on those is rough.. How is the fit in the waist? Looks like they could use moar saaaaag.
The fit in the top block is a little loose, particularly in the back. It's like my thighs/ass aren't big enough to fill them out so the excess material bunches up and bulges out. I've been wearing these for a few days now and while the denim has started to soften, the bulge persists. I'm not sure if it will ever go away. If I stare at it for too long it pisses me off. It wouldn't be so bad if it bunched up in the crotch/ass but right now it's protruding a good inch or two from my thigh at a sharp point, making them look awkward.
I like the fit through the leg though. I don't think sizing down would have been an option because these are already snug on my calves. I think I'd be losing circulation in a 30. The hip flare problem could also be from my build. The other fit pics I've seen have been mostly of taller/skinnier guys and there isn't much hip flare, if any. Maybe it's because I have too much material bunching up above the knees. I don't think I'll bother getting these tailored to fix the problem. Hopefully the hip flare will go away in a month or so.
