Finding flares & bells...

Can anybody help me find the kind of flares or bells I'm looking for. I am looking for some like Drake Bell wore on Drake & Josh back in season 2 & 3, and lesser extent some in season 4. I know it's a kids show but they are the best example of what I would like to find. They are tight in the thighs and then have a descent flare. The closest I have found is Levi 527 and 517's and Cowboy Cut Wranglers. Neither flare quiet as much as I am looking for but I have worn them for years as it's as close as I have found.
I have rewatched many Drake & Josh episodes with my nephews lately and I try to spot the label on his but he always wears a belt. If you want to know what they look like you can always go to youtube and watch Drake & Josh season 3 intro. Hard to find still shot pictures to post. I know it's a weird example but I've always remembered and wanted flares like that, and just wore the best I could find but recently seeing them again makes me realize they have to exist at an affordable cost. Thank you for any replies.

So nobody knows any companies that make any flare or bell bottoms like I'm talking about? I would have thought somebody did.

Martine Rose made some last season
John Lawrence Sullivan
Willy Chavaria

Those all have pretty wide flares. For smaller flares you also have Lemaire and Our Legacy sometimes.

Thank you for the reply. With some creative searching I am fairly certain I know the jeans he is wearing. Exactly the kind I am looking for.

One is Mogg Jeans. Good luck finding anything out about them. I have found a pictures of him wearing them and Jessica Simpson. I also found a couple expired posts selling a pair. They are unisex jeans. They are not actual vintage but based on what I can tell they were a company that made "vintage" style jeans for maybe a short time in the mid 2000's. But honestly that is just a guess, as information on this company is non existent. The few pair I seen appear to be either low or mid rise, slim through the thigh to about the new, and then the perfect amount of flare. Really wish these were readily available.

I also think, based on seraching he may have wore DKNY jeans some times, but not entirely sure.

I really did not think it would be this hard to find jeans made the way I want. Then I did and they are not made now. Crazy considering how back in the day common it was for jeans to be made this way.

But I think one problem is I am searching for mens jeans. Womens jeans seem to have almost unlimited choices in flare/boot cut jeans, including some basically just like the Moggs. And since the Moggs are listed as unisex, the way jeans often were back in the day. I bet I could just get some flare jeans that are listed as "women" and they would be fine. Kind of feels weird but only because of societal changes, since many jeans styles are really unisex.
