Where do 40 something DHs buy their jeans?

Mine is currently wearing tatty 501s which he keeps buying even though he always moans about the quality.
Urgently needs a new pair but we don't have much time for trawling shops.
He wears a 36R and has large or should I say manly thighs.

All ideas welcome please!

DH is 44. He goes to John Lewis as he hates trawling endless shops and they do lots of different brands. He also goes to Gap and Uniqlo.

DH goes to Next or Gap but he is only a 30...sometimes 32 now.

My DP (pretty tall and slim) wears either Superdry or Scotch and Soda which we found in TXMaxx initially and now buy online in his size.

OH (nearly 64) has very long legs and most places don't do long enough legs for him. I'm looking at you Levi.

I finally managed to find him some in Debenhams.

Mine is so tall (6ft 5) he struggles everywhere and mostly gets Levis from America when he travels with work, however has had a couple of cheap pairs from H&M which have been okay but not lasted brilliantly. He's 40, btw.

I don't understand why UK Levis only go up to a 33" inside leg. Loads of men are tall with long legs.

DH is a 34 with muscly thighs and likes the Next Loose fit style

Boden as he like the thickness of the denim and the button fly. Another favourite is crew but they only have zip fly so he will take the Boden ones out of the drawer over the crew ones.

Ralph lauren, they do the longest lengths, ever and are nice looking jeans.
OH is very, very tall.

The Gap. He's 6' 5 and 40+.

WoodleyPixie Sun 13-Dec-15 18:01:57

Oh and h thinks he's a 32 still but he's been a 34 for a while now. He fails to believe me though it's right there in the waistband.

Bunbaker Sun 13-Dec-15 18:24:49

Our local Gap closed and I can't order online for OH. He has to try everything on as he isn't a standard size.

My DH is a weight trainer and finds it hard to buy for his big legs but relatively small waist. He finds Tommy Hilfiger ones fit the best.

Ted Baker. Good cut, esp for men with long legs.

gingerdad Sun 13-Dec-15 19:12:21

Debenhams or M&S for me. Similar size and rugby player thighs.

Kirkland jeans at Costco. As a 501 fan dh was reluctant but they're so cheap (around £16-£20). An employee told me (on the QT like) that they're made by the same makers as Gaps.

H&M, DH is 6"1, 36/38 waist and v chunky thighs... As PP has said quality isn't brilliant but to be honest he seems to get through trousers very quickly, regardless of where they're purchased!

Mine gas jeans from Jack Wills (despite being about 25 years older than their average customer) and, for cheapies H&M have great slim fitting jeans. He's very slim and quite short (5'9) so has to wear slim or skinny jeans to avoid looking clownish.

I think our local Gap was the same as Bunbaker's, so we/he now go to an outlet shop a bit further away, which is a bit hit and miss.

He's just over 6ft and buys Gap or Boden. The first pair from Boden had to go back, but now he knows his size, it's relatively painless to order from them.

Mine hates shopping but likes rev brands in house of Fraser eg Hugo boss, Ted baker etc

Mine's mid-30s but wears Diesel. Most men I know do, with possibly some Levi's thrown in.
