    Hey Guys-

    I've had this issue with buying denim, and pants for that matter, all my life. Typically, the waist of the jean stretches good amounts but because of the size of my thighs and hips, the jeans upper thigh/crotch are always too tight. So i'm left with a saggy upper waist of the jean, but the crotch is tight and upper legs are super tight as well.

    I'm hoping someone could give me a good recommendation or perhaps someone is my size and have found a jean they're comfortable with. Below are my measurements:

    Widest at butt/hip= 36 in.
    Waist= 31.5 in.
    Upper thigh= 20 in.

    Booty in the pants? Thank You!

    I don't know much about bubble butts other than the fact that I like 'em (on girls).

    But fact is, embellished pockets make your butt look bigger than it is (which is a good thing for a flat-ass like me, but maybe not so much for you :p), so whatever size you get, if you really wanna look a tad bit flatter than you really are, you can always take the back pocket swongs off. It'll definitely help!

    Oh, and edit:
    If you want a slim-fitting pants which are not too tight on the quad area (crotch-ass to mid thigh area), I'd say go for the Big Bengt fit. About the sizes, no one can really help much, I suggest giving the nearest shop (which sells Nudies) a quick and try some on, then order online (it'll save you a good $50-$60 even after shipping costs!) ...

    -Photos of me in a diesel bootcut 30x32 that I haven't really broke in. Jeans usually look like that on me and tend to be dysfunctional for walking and generally looking good lol

    -Ideally, i'd like to have a pair that would like something like this on me

    I guess I just want to own a nice fitting pair of denim?

    Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

    I find it hard to see the problem in your pics, but when I read your post right, you would be fine with any kind of tapered jeans, that gives you enough room for your thighs and still has a slim leg opening. If you're looking for a straight cut, you might try an LVC 55 as well as a Samurai S3000 which has plenty of room in the thighs. For tapered cuts Big Bengt would be an Option or the S0505 maybe. But honestly, you should try them on, if you can't compare the measurements with a good fitting pair of yours.

    Upsized Thin Finn would solve the problem as well... I dunno but your fit looks average.

    I have never owned a pair of jeans I've loved which is really the problem. Take those diesel jeans in the photo above for instance- I bought them they fit Ok I suppose, and after 3 uncomfortable weeks of trying to get them to stretch or form to me they end up like that, then right to the closet. I have another pair of diesels that I feel the same way about.

    So I end up hating my expensive jeans and walk around uncomfortably to boot. So, given the photos above and the look i'm trying to go for, do your suggestions still stand? I feel like the Big Bengt are "relaxed" although i've never been around them before so I don't really know....

    Thanks everyone

    Hmm... Shame the Regular Ralf/Alf fit has been discontinued. Can't really tell which one is best in terms of your preference, but I suggest trying on some Average Joe, Grim Tim, Slim Jim, and Big Bengt. I'm kinda leaning towards the Average Joe and Slim Jim fits for you though...

    Best way is to get some jeans on your ass and choose which ones you want. IMO Nudie's fits are the best... So whichever way you end up, as long as you get the sizing right, you can't be wrong :)

    Oh and of course there's always the saying "It's better to look good, than to feel good", there's always a price to looking good my bud!

    If I could just offer my two cents... get an Average Joe. Those are what DJ was wearing in that pic, and they seem to fit your specifications pretty well; a decent amount of room in the thighs, and it tapers a bit below the knee (NO boot cut). I think boot cuts generally just look weird, especially on people with your body type.

    Just saying, you will never get jeans that fit loose in the butt like that. I don't have a big butt, but I don't have a flat butt either, and it is next to impossible to get flat butts unless you increase your size a lot. So imo, just learn to live with it. Just don't think about it all the time and you will be fine. Otherwise, good luck in your search!

    Looks fine to me. Sounds like you're just not comfortable with what you're doing... but if you claim that your jeans are that uncomfortably tight on you, then size up. Alternatively you can lose weight.

    Hrmm yeah I guess not being able to walk properly for 2 months, and then owning a $300 denim that you detest. It is very uncomfortable Jin.

    Where do you live? Any stores selling Nudie Jeans there? If there are any, give them a quick visit and try some on for size, man! That's probably the only way to get that perfect fit you want.

    Hey Scream-

    I live in Manhattan, NY so there's blue in cream. Any ideas in terms of sizing? I know it depends on the cut but generally speaking you buy 1 waist size down for dry denim?? Thanks.

    Btw you sound like such a positive person scream, best of luck in life ;)

    I apologize if I came off harsh, but it sounded to me like you're worrying too much and my suggestion was to take a more care free approach. If you understand yourself that it's ridiculous to be squeezing into jeans and being uncomfortable for 2 months, why are you doing it / why did you do it? You're answering your own question in this thread.

    Anyway...

    The store is Blue in Green, not blue in cream. You can check out sizing info on www.blueingreensoho.com, each jean is going to measure differently so nobody will be able to provide you with an estimate of whether you should size down or not - though since you're so insistent on having a bubble butt it sounds like you should be sizing up rather than down.

    If your ass is big, you can learn a fair amount from the pictures of jeans on-line. Look for ones where the waist is somewhat tapered in from the hips, as it appears on most Sugar Cane jeans. If it appears almost entirely straight up, like on APC or I've recently noticed on Imperial jeans, then odds are those cuts won't be for you. If they fit the waist, they'll crush the hips. If they fit the hips, you'll have an extra inch or two in the waist.

    A.)
    Because i've been lead to believe that that is the only way to get great looking jeans.
    B.)
    I'm not insistent on anything. I weight 165 lbs and am 5 10.

    Sorry, I played high school sports you ****. I don't want to hear your back handed advice anymore.
    C) It was a typo.

    Well, I'm sure you understand enough now that there's really no point of sizing down to the point where your clothing restricts your movement. (though some people may disagree)

    Phrased that wrong - meant to say something along the lines of 'since you claim'.

    I don't understand what part of my posts were 'back handed', I think you're taking it way too personally. What does your height, weight and your high school sport career have anything to do with what I told you...?

    Calm down.

    Don't worry about it guys, I can understand being easily annoyed after buying pairs and pairs of expensive jeans only to realize they're not as comfy or as long-lasting as you expect them to be.

    And as for sizing suggestions for raw denim, my experience with Nudies is this: I always size down twice for fits which have lycra/elastane in them, cause they'll pretty much stretch out to the point of being comfy in the end. I dunno if this is just me or not though, cause I do have a thing for skinny/slim-fit jeans ;)
