Trying to find a serious way to say I need help finding jeans that fit better than what I am used to. I'm middle aged, 5'11" tall, 200# with a 34 inch waist and have very little (none) when it comes to hips and buttocks.


Low rise jeans feel like they are falling off all the time.
Skinny jeans fit in the buttocks while the legs are skin tight, and look goofy with a gut.
Regular fit or loose fit are fine in the legs, don't emphasize gut, but sag in the groin and buttocks.


Is it possible to get jeans custom made without breaking the bank? Ideas welcome.

There's a fairly easy way to get your jeans to fit better. Easier if you have a friend who can help...


Put the jeans on, wrong side out, and have the friend pin the excess material going down your legs, on the outside seam. And then have someone (our yourself) so a seam along the pinned area.


If you do this (you can test it before commitment even) it pulls up the excess material in the back. No more saggy butt.

Yes, visit a tailor, who probably has seen this problem before, so don’t be shy.

If your doc suggests dropping some weight for health’s sake, do that. Men lose weight fairly easily.

I think Levis fit men the best. Even with flat bootie, Levis still look good.

Try Levis slim straight fit. My husband used to wear it when he had no butt. Now he's been doing squats a couple years and can't get his butt or thighs into his slim straight fit jeans, but he used to love those because there was still room in the legs to wear them over cowboy boots.
