Pants for wide hips and narrower waist and thighs?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jack Bauer Mar 2. 2 Replies

I have wider hips and narrow thighs and a narrow waist.  Not from weight (I'm pretty skinny) just from how I'm built.  My problem is I cannot find slacks or chinos that fit.  They have "relaxed" or…Continue

Where to find hats that aren't one size fits all?

I'm looking to add some hats to my wardrobe.  Classy hats, not baseball caps.  The trouble is that I'm a very small man, and most hats I've found are "one size fits all."  Meaning they're too big for…Continue

Difficulty with fitting pants properly - whiskering across crotch, baggy seat

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jesse Carena Aug 19, 2014. 6 Replies

I am a short guy with fairly wide hips for my size.  Not fat - I'm in very good shape - but simply wide.  This has created a lot of problems with finding pants that fit, and I am not well enough off…Continue

"Maybe slim fit? Or are those too tight around the hips? Or ... do some squats, and build up your quads so they match the rest. Heh. JB"

"Well, at first I wanted to suggest wearing black pants since they make you look skinnier, but since that's not what you're asking, my only suggestion is to take 'em to a tailor (since I really don't understand the problem here),…"

I have wider hips and narrow thighs and a narrow waist.  Not from weight (I'm pretty skinny) just from how I'm built.  My problem is I cannot find slacks or chinos that fit.  They have "relaxed" or "athletic" fit, but those assume both your hips and your thighs are big.  My problem is that by the time the pants fit in the waist, the thighs are ridiculously baggy and look terrible.  And tailoring just really isn't an option, especially not for that area - you'd basically have to take most of the…See More

"I could maybe wear a 6 1/2, maybe.  The trouble is there's really no sort of actual hat shop around here, and I hate ordering online because it's super expensive for unknown quality (usually bad).  All we really have are…"

Jack Bauer replied to Jesse Carena's discussion Where to find hats that aren't one size fits all?
"What's your hat size?  As far as I've seen, most non-baseball hats aren't one-size-fits-all.  Cowboy hats are sized.  Fedoras are sized.  They seem to range from about 6 1/2 to 8.  If your head is so small…"

I'm looking to add some hats to my wardrobe.  Classy hats, not baseball caps.  The trouble is that I'm a very small man, and most hats I've found are "one size fits all."  Meaning they're too big for me.  Where do I find hats that actually come in different sizes so I can fit my head?See More

"Well, good luck to you.  $30--$40 for slacks, sorry, but that train left years ago (At least in the part of the country where I live, even khakis [one step up from jeans khakis] start, off sale, at the high end of your total price range.)"

Banya Men!

Though they aren't common in the United States, Jjimjilbangs, Banyas, Onsens, and Hamams are a great places to hang out.  This is a group for men comfortable in their own skin and appreciate the eastern ideas of public bath houses.See More
