The world is opening back up, and if you're ditching the trackies, here's how to shop for jeans for guys with big thighs

The world is opening back up and the Euro’s are on, life couldn’t get much better. But with that comes peeling ourselves out of our trusty joggers and shorts and donning a more fitting ensemble. 

Jeans are a staple part of a man’s wardrobe that can be paired with almost anything. Polo shirt? Sure. Football t-shirt? You betcha. But us big men know that finding jeans or denim shorts that fit comfortably around the waist and thighs that also look good is a bit of a task.

That’s why our mates at BigClothing4U have put together this guide to help take the guesswork out of shopping for jeans for big men.

The best jean types for big thighs

Stretch jeans

Stretch jeans incorporate a small amount of elastane to allow the jean to stretch to fit your thigh comfortably, whether you’re sitting or standing.

Comfort fit

Comfort fit jeans provide big men with extra room throughout the leg, ideal for big men who have thick thighs and calves.

Tapered jeans

Tapered jeans are roomier at the top and narrower towards the ankle, creating a soft, fitted look while providing extra comfort for those with larger thighs.

Measuring for the right fit

To get jeans that fit comfortably and look great, always measure your waist and leg length both standing up and sitting down. This way you get an idea of how much room you need throughout the day.

By selecting the right fit, your chosen jeans will sit right in the places they were designed to fit and give extra room where needed e.g. the waist, glutes, and thighs.

Check out BigClothing4U’s guide for how to measure correctly.

Heading out on the town? Pair tapered jeans with a white fitted shirt. Unbutton the top 2-3 buttons to create a flattering V-shape, making the shoulders appear wider and the waist smaller.

If you’re looking for a more relaxed look, a graphic t-shirt accentuates the chest and takes the focus away from the stomach. We recommend the Uptheir Atlas t-shirt in khaki, as seen on Harvey Price and strongman Laurence Shahlaei.
