Where does your man buy his jeans?

Mine is tall with long legs, no bum and a big waist and all his jeans look pretty awful on him! But then he does tend to buy the M&S bargain range. I'm sure there must be better fitting ones out there. He also hates trying stuff on so he buys whatever fits best after trying about 3 pairs on... (so we need to get the shop right in the first place!)

All help gratefully received!

dp gets them in next - though he is the opposite to your chap as he has rugby player thighs and bum and finds it difficult to find non-skinny jeans (which look a bit daft on him and aren't comfortable for him). next seem to do lots of different cuts

Carhartt - he is 6'6'' and they are the only ones he's ever found that are long enough. He buys 2 or 3 pairs at a time, wears them til they fall apart and then buys them again.

French Connection jeans for men are fantastic. DP is tall, thin, long legs, slightly larger thighs, and a regular waist and he swears by them. Plus, on ASOS, they are always on sale (e.g. right now, lots of £70 pairs for £36).

Levi 501s - never wears anything else!

My bf has some from gap that look good (and some others possibly from lands end which are less good)

DH is tall and slim and generally wears Diesel.

My dh is average height with large cyclist's thighs and he gets his jeans from Uniqlo. They do a few different cuts so would be worth a look for any shape.

Gap - they sell 36in inside leg.

gap - the home of the rugby thighed man

Next and gap. His last pair were from The Hut (free when you bought a hoody so a real bargain)

Superdry and he looks yum in them grin

Fat face, Zara and Gap.

Do Gap do 38" + waists??? He is a bit of 'unique' shape in that he has 34" legs and a 38" waist...

DH only wears Levi's. We buy there from the designer outlet where they are a lot cheaper.
Similar to your DH, long legs, no bum, big waist.

GretaWolfcastle Thu 20-Feb-14 11:18:47

dunno - look online

ILoveWooly Thu 20-Feb-14 11:22:28

Friends DH is a 38 inch waist... he uses ASOS as many regular shops stop at a 36.

whereisshe Thu 20-Feb-14 11:22:42

DH is a 36" waist, 34" leg and I always get his jeans from asos (whatever is the right shape in his size and on sale) - it's too much of a pain trying to find his size in a shop. Actually a 35" waist would be better but hardly anyone makes them.

My DP wears Levis, he's tall but slim with cyclist's thighs ans bum, no idea what Levis would be like for men with big waists though, sorry.

DH has skinny legs and bum - a runner's physique. Favours strange Swedish brands from Urban Outfitters. Cheap Monday, I think.

Says River Island and Gap are too baggy on his thighs.

Lambzig Thu 20-Feb-14 12:55:04

Uniqlo, lots of different cuts and the selvedge men's jeans are fabulous.

MrsBungle Thu 20-Feb-14 12:56:44

Dh only really wears Paul smith or diesel - sometimes Levi's. Or Fred perry chinos.

Vickiyumyum Thu 20-Feb-14 13:45:49

xh wears boden jeans, they are surprisingly nice colours are better than they look online, or mandmdirect. he also likes paul smith and boss.
