    It could be worse, I could be my father who is 6'7", 320 lbs, sz 15 shoe. I've always been the little guy in my family [​IMG]

    WOW, can he beat the crap out of you, my father still can. [​IMG] Well, theoretically, never actaully tried fighting him, but I'm the skinny one and hes the fattish one with muscles.

    5'10 180 lbs with 25" thighs from two decades of soccer and lacrosse. Correctly fitting jeans (pants in general) are a bitch to find. Usually have to go up at least a size and work from there. Slim fitting jeans were abandoned back in high school. Eventually when I have some spare cash, I'm just going to resort to bespoke pants in general, it's probably worth it in the end.

    Its probably because you exercise(skate) so much... Of course you already probably know that so [​IMG]

    FWIW, AG jeans actually fit me pretty well, even with the 24" thighs. I can fit in a 31 waist for most cuts, 32 for the one-wash protoge. I definitely have to size up to around a 33 or higher in things like chip and pepper, true religion, deisel, etc.

    *sigh*

    At 5'11" and 230 lb, I have 31" thighs, 49" hips and a 34" waist. This is due to a confluence of genetics and a proclivity toward full, olympic style squats...and before you ask, yes, I know how to use a tape measure. A lot of us wrestlers are built similarly.

    What I find is that a relaxed cut like a Levi's 550 fits like it was painted on. Forget about premium denim; their baggiest still doesn't have enough seat.

    I guess I would fall into "normal"... 5'11, 31" waist, 160 lbs, and 21.5" thighs (mixture of muscle and flab I suppose)...

    So why is it that most jeans I try on squeeze the living daylights out of my thighs? I usually have to size up in the waist which leads to tightening things up with a belt... ugh.

    Ya, I see where that would be a problem. I just got a pair of premium denim, but this whole 3 day a week squat thing is gonna make me grow out of em [​IMG]

    6'3" 180 with 24" thighs. I've been playing football/basketball since I was in elementary school till now. I am actually trying to get back down to 170 again and get the thighs down to around 22". I've had the same problems finding jeans, but once I tried on an APC new standard, I was sold!

    It's funny buying a 31waist in one pair of jeans and a 33 in another....argh!

    For big thighs I recommend going with this look:
