You must join any good gym and start your work out under supervision of any fitness expert to stay in shape.

I would hardly say you "must" take that route. There are many paths to a good level of fitness.

Besides, for the cost of a couple of years' gym membership, you can assemble an excellent home gym where you can work out at your own convenience, something that will amortize itself many times over, and most of it will last forever. A lot of my equipment I bought 48 years ago. Moreover, all you really need to get started is a weight bench and a set of adjustable dumbbells if finances and/or space are an issue.

I have a similar problem to the OP and have found that there are three possible solutions (on the clothing side) when it comes to suits:

1. Go MTM/MTO and take the trousers one size larger than the jacket when compared to OTR suits

2. Find suits which can be let out in the waist and seat enough to accommodate your glutes/quads without having to buy a jacket which is too big

3. Go with suit separates; SF affiliate eHaberdasher's house label, Benjamin, are probably among the better quality separates I've seen

I've just come to accept the fact that, genetically, I have thick legs. My goal has become to make sure that they stay "hard thick" instead of "soft thick" (and no, that wasn't supposed to be as dirty as it may have sounded).

I can't delete my comments.. Your hips are most likely due to your skeletal structure. You could try packing some wight on the shoulders, but really i doubt that will help. I find wearing anything slimmer than straightleg in Levi's accentuates my hips. You could try avoiding slim jeans.

Holy balls, I can not believe I subjected myself to this diatribe.
Damn click bait.
