    Hi guys,

    I was hoping to get the advice of the forum - I have quite muscular thighs and hips from a couple of years of intensive weight training - the are about 27 inches cold... I usually wear bootcuts, but was looking at Hutch for something different...

    Can I get your opinion as to whether the Hutch works with muscular thighs or not? I dont mind it snug, as all my bootcuts are snug, I just dont want anything cutting off the circulation, nor do I want it looking ridiculous. Other guys with experience fitting muscular thighs, your experiences please...

    Thanks,
    P

    Ps will intro myself later... its almost bedtime here in Sydney...

    Thanks for the link mate

    Still wondering about how this kinda cut looks on muscular legs though...

    Does anyone know which levi's cut the Hutch would be similiar to?

    Seriously I don't know how people fit in these jeans. I purchased a pair of ES Hemingways which are supposedly their fuller leg jean. I am not a huge guy 5' 10", 170lbs. and they seemed quite tight in the thigh to me and the rise was so small you could actually see where my genetalia was. Instant return. I can't imagine a slimmer fitting Hutch...

    I have fairly muscular thighs from biking, I bought a pair of ES Hutch's in a 34 (I'm about a true 32-33" waist) and they are snug, especially behind the knees, but I think they look great. I did have to get the waist taken in though.

    I have no experience with the Hutch. My thighs are also somewhat muscular from years of cycling. But I can still wear ES jeans -- I have Filson and Fulton models (the Filson borders on "too tight" classification, but still works). I am 6'3" and 172lbs, 33/34 waist.

    The Hutch are pretty slim. I would say that they would not work well with muscular thighs.

    Yeah, I'm going to have to go and say that the Hutches are going to be too tight, the Hemingways might be a better option. I'm selling both in the Buying/Selling forum, btw (and I can get larger sizes) [​IMG]

    I agree with Grapist. I wouldn't consider my thighs as too big, but the Hutch was a little too slim on them anyway. I had a similar issue with the PDC GTO. I decided to pick up a pair of Hemingways and they fit rather nice, although the leg opening could be a little smaller. Try a pair of Hemingways on and see how you like it.

    greyflannel, are the Filson's only tighter than the Fulton's in the thigh or in the calf/ankle as well? Could the variation you experience in the two models be due to two different washes? Revolve shows some of the old Filson washes having different knee/leg opening measurements. Same goes for the new Fulton's. I tried on the Fultons (53 - Patriot Wash) ystrdy. Usually wear a 32 or 33 in jeans. I found the 33's to give me a bit of an "upside-down triangle" look (I'm kinda short) because they were looser in the thigh. The 32 Fulton's were a little tight around the waste and narrower in the thighs. The narrowness in the thighs worked well on me, and seemed to even out the balanace between the thigh and the calf. I'm about to pick up the Filson's online for a cheaper price which is why I'm wondering about the fit. Sorry to hijack the thread.

    I have a muscular 28" thighs and I tried on a pair of ES Hemmingway's yesterday. I felt like I was going to bust out of the jeans Incredible Hulk style if I tried to walk. Plus it strangled my johnson something fierce. Just to echo what everyone else has already said.

    My thighs are the same diameter as some people's waist.
    ES = for skinny vegan hipster kids, not people who used to do sports.

    I find my Filsons to be slimmer all around, including at calf/ankle. After reading your note, I tried on both models, and the Filsons definitely are tighter. My Filsons are the "Maz Dark 3D" wash, whatever that means. I prefer the fit of my Fultons which are slim but reasonably comfortable.

    (Actually, my favorite pair of jeans are now my APC New Standards!)

    I own both the filson and hutch maz dark 3D. Just like GreyFlannelMan said, Filson is much slimmer around the calf and below the knee. Hutch, despite being the "bootcut reference" for ES, seems more like a straight fit to most of everyone. A size up for the Hutch might solve your problem... else..the Fulton series probably would do it for you.
