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

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

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

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

"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…"

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

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 to employ a tailor for anything less than a suit.  I would prefer to wear slacks on a regular basis rather than jeans.However I have been faced with a problem.  I seem to be able to fit either my hips or my legs.  Pants that are otherwise my size in the waist and leg have an unpleasant whiskering…See More

Do you speak German fluently?

A lady came to my church's weekly food pantry (which used clothing as well) who told the ladies there that she couldn't understand them because she only speaks German (which may or may not be true).  I told the ladies that I would have a simple set of rules translated into German, and with my one year of German in high school, I could show and read to her these rules next week.I translated using Google from English into German.  Are any of you guys able to check my Google translation for…See More
