    511 black stretch and Uniqlo Leggings jeans have a pretty big differential between their shrinkiest and stretchiest . Levi's commuters as well though a bit less so.

    All are great options if you're lifting, though not great if you're super into great denim (all plebe tier).

    I actually tried to redye black 511's that started to fade and look shitty. I haven't had clothes fade into looking shitty in years I had forgotten what it was like. It didn't work though---oh well, new ones are just $40.

    I was looking at the pbj uniqlos before I purchased a pair of Big Johns form NMWA, but I found the rise to be way too small.

    I get 28" on a large measured along the back from the base of the collar. They feel a little longer when worn, though, possibly because of the open neckline.



    Which Big Johns did you get, and how do you like them?

    Buy whatever you want if you're lifting. $49 denims can be tossed if you outgrow them.

    I don't disagree. I'm a student and stay at home dad, my wife is a school teacher. We don't have money, I'm just saying the idea that you lift means you shouldn't buy shit is silly to me. And a pair of $50 selvedg is nbd in the scheme of things, esp when most people buying denim on here are spending north of $200.

    I've just accepted the fact I need two of each basic, one for when I'm dieting and another for when I'm bulking. Outwear don't really need to fit me spot on and can be either worn slim at end of bulk or sized up end of cut. So I spend my money on outerwear and shoes.

    I got the Slim Tapered. Overall I'm pretty happy with them.

    While they are tapered, they aren't tapered enough for any sort of stacking, so I had to have them hemmed (I have a 34" inseam, so stacking isn't really a very good option for me anyways).

    The seat on the pants is really full, so there is a bit of diaper butt, but not enough to put me off.

    I wouldn't go so far to say that I have big thighs, but they aren't skinny. As a result, they fit pretty well in the thigh w/o being tight. The rise is just right, for me anyways. I could tuck a shirt in if I had to, but the waist doesn't sit up by my belly button or anything.

    Imagine if you only bought stuff from brands that have big/huge/etc in their name. Not sure it can be done.

    Big John and Big Star, both denim based.
    LTB by Little Big
    On Yoox, I found a couple of brands: Big Uncle (must be an Alden holding) and Big-E
