    I am a 31" waist with big thighs.

    I see a lot of 9 and 10" low rise and a ton of 10.5-11". But I can't find a high denim with a low rise around 8-8.5" in a 31 waist unless it is a skinny guy fit.

    Any suggestions on what brand i need to look at?

    No skinny jeans. My legs are big and i have a super small waist (comparativly). So I am looking for something with a low rise and more standard leg size. So far Abercrombie is all I have found to match these criteria. I am just shocked that all these high end compamies either cater to skinny or super high front rise jeans.

    No low-rise jeans?


    Any high end heavy oz denim low rise jeans being made? I don't see them in the known makes like Iron heart, Naked and famous, Nudie ect.

    Or do the better cuts just exist on the fashion designer labels like True Religion, RRL , Abercrombie ect ?

    Thanks so much. I am looking for a pair of these now in 30-31 waist.

    It is just odd to me that there are hardly any low rise heavy denim jeans avalaible.

    Yes, 8 is the number he typed.
    Yes, he appears to be serious.
    One presumes he understands the proportional meanings of numbers up to 10.
    Perhaps he is "small" -- take him out to dinner first why don't you.
    Maybe he would rather ask a forum full of men about finding men's jeans than wear women's jeans.

    Do you feel better now?

    I wear a size 26 in the Somet 003. I also like the size 26 in Naked & Famous "Slim Girl" (Women's) jeans. ... The N&F "Slim Girl" jeans themselves are genderless ... no luscious ass pocket bedazzling or anything ... Unfortunately, I'm no longer able to find a retailer who's got them ... Everyone carries N&F for men but not for women ... .... ... I too like a low rise, as I find anything with a rise greater than 8.5 ends up unflatteringly sagging sloggily below my at my non-existent ass ... However, there aren't as many selvedge options for women's jeans as there are for men and there aren't very men's jeans with such a low rise ... So you'll have to do some searching ... Best of luck in this endeavor.

    The Lee Gold Label 101s used to have an 8.75" rise, although I'm a little unsure of the direction(s) the Lee 101 line has taken. I've seen similar rises on Eurotrash D-Squared jeans.
