Default Please recommend some jeans for me...

I'm having a lot of trouble finding a pair of "fashionable" jeans that fit my body type. usually i buy either the gap or american eagle baggy type jeans but i'm getting into my mid 20's now and feel i have to step my game up a notch. i lift a lot and i'm 6'2 220 @13% bf (christmas chub right now) but i have a huge ass and big thighs and quads, so i can't fit into any of these slim jeans. i'm invariably okay around the waist but it gets all ass-tight from there. shirts and suits aren't a problem..i wear 46L suits and have a nice hugo boss that fits me well, but jeans are a pain in the ass. the tailor who i bought that suit from a couple months ago said i would need handmade suits in the future. does anyone know if i can find these brands like seven, lucky etc in my size? thanks

I'm about the same build as you. I just got some pretty nice Ralph Lauren jeans, and some of the Calvin Klein ones fit nice as well. I think the RL are my favorite though, something like this

I like Lucky Brand jeans. Lots of different cuts, one of them will work for you.

I am 6'3" 220, and have the same problem with jeans you do. I found a couple pairs last night at Express that I really liked. Plus, the Express store near me had a $30 off every jean sale, which is great. I ended up spending between $25-30 a jean.

Check out the *TT* rates OOT's fashion sense and Apparently I can't dress myself threads for good suggestions on jeans. Well only if you are ready to pay $120+ each. Diesel, AG, and 7 are all recommended but very expensive.

Replay Jeans are the best jeans money can buy, if you are looking for something a bit more fashionable. I'm 6'4" 250. When you're a big guy, fitting pants is the way to go, I think loose jeans just look sloppy.

J. Crew jeans are also a nice alternative, their "Vintage Boot Cut"

i have a similar body type (6'4", 220lbs, big thighs from years of lifting/athletics) ... i like Nautica's "Big EZ" jeans because they have a full cut in the thighs and seat w/o looking too baggy/sloppy. they come in many colors/finishes (they don't all look as worn as the pair in this photo)

i usually have no problem finding them in Macy's.

IMO, they really are the best. I have a hard time ever finding pants that fit me properly since I have a small waist in proportion to the thickness of my legs. I didnt wear jeans for years until I found Lucky's.
