    Are there any nudies besides the bjorn with a bigger-than-average thigh (but still skinny down low)?


    Well, the Bjorn is not made anymore. I find the Ralf to be generous in the thigh, alot more generous than you might expect from a bootcutish jean. I only bought the Bjorn because I thought the Ralf wouldn't give me the necessary thigh size but it wasn't until I tried them on (yea, it's a bitch trying to find the right jean sight unseen) that I realized that they are definitely not a slimmer jean (a 36 waist in the Ralf will easily give 27 inches in the thigh).

    I guess the Average Joe will give the thigh space but without the subtle flare at the bottom.

    I'm surprised nobody mentioned the Nom de Guerre classic. I'd also second R&B RB6, which you can get for under $100 at the Barney's outlent (not selvage, though, afaik).

    Those look terrible

    Yeah, but they use good denim, and they fit guys with big legs. If you want a nice wash, you have to do it yourself, though.

    I love how its always:
    "26in thighs.... from lifting and pumping iron and cycling man rock hard stuff "” oversized like crazy...."

    but its never:
    that yer probably just eatin' too much and ya got big, soft, sun-starved, meaty legs that don't fit into normal sized pants.

    you can usually tell what's up from the waist/thigh ratio. The previous poster had 33" waist with 26" thigh which means they probably have pretty big quads relative to what is normal.

    I have a 36" waist and 30" thighs (partly genetic). What I do is get relaxed 40s or so, and have the waist taken in by a tailor.

    It's the same here as it is with the "where can I find a thin shirt?" guys. Get something that is big enough that its tightest area is still comfortable (for me, it's a shirt's neck and pants' thighs) and have the tailor pull the loose parts in.

    It's like we forgot tailors exist.

    The JulianRed "sorrows" I just got seem to perfect for a guy with big legs

    The waist-hip-thigh ratio is cut for a guy with a small waist, but bigger butt and thighs, and then it tapers to a slim fitting hem.

    Any recommendations for jeans that also will be narrow enough in the calve area to stack?
    I have a 32 natural waist, 22 inch thighs (yeah squats and rugby), 14 inch calves. So usually what happens is the jeans fit in the waist, are a little tight in the thighs but stretch out, but the calve area is consistently bigger and I find myself having to taper jeans, etc., to get that stacked look.
    Any models out there that will do this for me?
    (Don't mean to hijack, but it seems we have a similar issue)


    Have you tried the Dry Bones DP570?

    I have big thighs (24 inches) and these fit me really, really well and they have a crazy narrow leg opening. It's an intense taper but it's the only option to get that narrow leg opening without looking like my legs are going to bust out of the jeans. The denim on Dry Bones is really nice, as well.
