    Slim Pants but Thick Thighs

    I have really thick/muscular thighs and leg muscles, but today's fashion trends require slim pants. What brand and style of fit will most likely fit me? (I usually refrain from jeans because I find it makes me look the shortest and bulkiest)

    Black will probably disguise this the most, and a tapered ankle or else the bottoms will look short and boxy. Tapering will add a slightly slimming illusion.

    You're the same as me mate. The best jeans I've ever found are All Saints gun fit jeans. They're tapered and have a 2% elastane content so stretch nicely. Stay well away from 100% cotton jeans as they won't retain their shape and be too tight around your calfs.

    I'm an athlete so have exactly the same issue. Big legs, slim waist. (What a problem to have).

    I've swear by Replay. Worth checking them out. Even their slim fit jeans work on me.

    Agreed with Joshua

    As an alternative, Levi's have a couple of fits you may like - specifically, 508's and 520's. Both are made with 2% elastane. Your best bet is to get to a store and try on

    508 - "Our 508™ regular taper jeans combine the best of both worlds. The fit is cut to sit looser at the waist and thigh with a gradual taper down through the leg opening. The result is a fit that keeps an overall tailored silhouette that doesn’t compromise comfort. Also, recommended for an athletic build"

    520 - "Back by popular demand, our 520™ extreme tapers are constructed to hang low on the hip, with a drop crotch, and to be generous through seat and thigh, tapering down to a skinny leg opening. Best for an athletic build who wants a skinny jean look."

    I would definitely stick to dark colored pants especially black if you have thick thighs

    And I love the all saints jeans <3

    Im in a similar situation.
    I have heard Levis 511's slim fit are good for those with big legs yet prefer the slim/skinny look, although I haven't had the chance to try them.

    While I have you all here, what brand of t-shirts/shirts do you guys recommend for someone who has a smaller waist and larger chest/shoulders/biceps that is slim fitted??

    I'm a big fan of Reiss, All Saints and if you're taller American Apparel for slim fit tees for bigger guys.
