Jeans for bodybuilders. . .

after spending 3 hours and trying on at least 25 pairs of jeans and only finding one pair that even came close to remotly fitting well, they either fit your legs but the waist is way too big, are too tight, you have to get stupid big baggy things and have the crotch hang between your knees


im seriously thinking about launching a small clothing label making clothes to fit people that train!




jeans that fit
t shirts that are tapered smaller at the waist rather than larger and hang off big shoulders like a tent
shirts that fit round the waist that you can lift your arms up in

    One thing I have learned from 6 years of on and off visiting bodybuilding forums is that this topic comes up all the time.

    I love clothes. I bought some jeans today after a big dilemma. 38 or 36? 36 or 38!? Aaaaaaagh! Denim does shrink a bit in the wash, but it also stretches a bit with wear. Even fresh out of the washing machine a pair of jeans may seem snugger only to feel less snug and softer and more free (and just right) with a couple of days wear.

    I'm 6ft. 46 chest, 34-36 waist depending on whether I am trying to bulk or shrink. I have mostly 36 waist jeans in my collection, but also some 38's. Though the 38's tend not to be jeans but trousers. I tend to fit some 36 jeans nicely, but other 36's are too snug. The odd 38 may be just right with a belt, and another 38 may be miles too big. The only 38 jeans I have seem exactly the same size as the 36's I have when I compare.

    So...

    I quite like skateboard/hip hop brands e.g. Mecca cos they are more free. So brands I like might not be your thing. I hate tight clothes.

    I've had the same jeans on for 2 days now, gonna go to the disco in the centre of the town.. everyone's dressing up, I'm dressing down....


    edited to add. Find a tailor. £20 could see your jeans tailored to your exact fit/requirements.

    How big are your thighs? Mine are only 25 so I am about ok with 36 or 38. With a little effort I can get my waist to 33 but I would still wear the 36 or 38 jeans belted because I wouldn't have shrunk that much on my legs or seat when in good condition.

    A tailor could remove 1-2 inches from the waistband no problem. And you wouldn't be able to tell it was ever done.

    It's not just you big guys that have a problem with jeans .. I have a 26" waist and a huge arse so I really struggle trying to find jeans that fit without leaving a gaping chasm round my waist

    Plus I'm a shortarse so leg length is a major problem

    I want my own tailor !!

    And though she be but little, she is fierce..

    might look into that as a last resort, just the thought of buying a decent pair of jeans bigger that what i want, and then spending more money to get them to fit seems a bit weird, but it may well be the only way

    and i suppose then i could go back to looking for jeans i really like, rather than jeans that fit lol

    Gasp jeans may be pricey but then in comparison to what? You could try Gap worker jeans. They are the only other ones I can get that fit Paul.

    Welshy - I've been trying to find a pair of new jeans for weeks now and can't find ANY that fit right!

    I cant wear any designer jeans anymore, a total biatch really. I found a few decent pair of combat type jeans in next, loose fit, but if you have big thighs they look decent on. Also, if you have a republic near you, there are a few jeans there, think they are Bench jeans that fit ok too. As for a smart pair of jeans for going out etc, forget it lol, I cant find anything anywhere!

    Had this problem for years and then I discovered Levis 514s (Athletic cut so more room in seat and thigh)
     
    Regular 501s I can't get my thighs into but the 514s are shaped perfectly.
