    I've been picking up pants at Banana Republic. They seem to fit tight, but I don't know what part of that is style, and what part of that is being too small. Is there any rule of thumb how they should fit in the butt?

    slim fit in a light weight fabric you should be able to fit one whole pair, depending how relaxed you are.
    With a heavier cloth you may need to cut them up and feed them in piece by piece.

    Keep the thumb out of the butt.

    Nothing should ever fit "tight."

    If that's what you're shooting for then you might as well sign up for that TV show called "What not to Wear."

    If your pockets are being pulled open, at all, or your legs look like sausage in a casing when you sit down, they're too tight.

    Is there a measurement more extreme than Moose Knuckle?
