I need a new pair of dress pants for work; recently, Ive purchased a pair of prada and dolce & gabbana, and while they are very nice pants, i feel as though they are just way too tight for me. I have a 33 inch waist, but I have pretty big legs, so the pants always look uncomfortably tight on me. Do you guys have any brands u can recommend? I still want them to look sleek and modern, but not uncomfortable, if you know what I mean. Id go in to a store and look around, but Im in Buffalo for awhile and there arent alot of higher end stores here for that stuff. Ill probably have to buy online from saks or something, so any brand suggestions are appreciated. Im wondering how zegna pants fit; ive heard good things on this forum about them

Ugh.

You might do well with pleats..they will be roomier in the thigh.

Or, get pants made.

My advice is to just bypass the waist altogether...



Seriously, though, this is exactly why I think this slim fit trend sucks, I agree with the post above, you need pleats. Nothing wrong with pleats.
