    Hello,

    I'm searching for high waist trousers as seen worn by the gentlemen in the links below. Not only do I love the style but I have a similar physique and require tightness in the waist and fullness in the leg.

    Please help! I'm sick of wearing sweatpants everywhere and I desperately need to get rid of these ill fitted trousers.

    Thank you for any recommendations.

    A lot of the 'trad' (vintage American/Ivy League clothing) stores will have trousers with long rises. I know O'Connell's, Ben Silver, and J Press have options for Long, Regular, and Short rise trousers for their store brand trousers. I find the short rise trousers there to correspond with regular rise trousers elsewhere, so I'm assuming the long and regular options will suit your needs.

    You could also check Bill's Khakis M1/M2 models as well, but I think they will be fuller cut than the above options.

    Above is probably the best suggestion. Good thinking to go high waisted. Body building type physiques can look overall top heavy and gorilla like otherwise.

    Brooks brothers and http://www.pakeman.co.uk/ Pakeman Catto Cutter may have models you're looking for also.

    Epaulet Rudy's may work well for you.

    Who is the guy in the third photo?

    Looks like Ronnie Coleman took a time machine to the 1920s
