By the way, I tried custom jeans at a place here in New York many years ago (the place is now out of business) and, despite my high hopes and the time and effort put in, the fit came out all wrong, and here’s why. (The same thing can happen when having suits or suit pants made for you or tailored for you, so be careful)!
I think most tailors and designers aren’t familiar with muscular legs and how they’re shaped. Here’s the problem: When you’re standing up and someone puts a tape measure around your upper thigh they’ll get one measurement, and they’ll think that that’s all they need to know about the circumference of your upper thigh. WRONG.
Now, sit down in a chair, and cross one leg over the other (say, your right leg over your left) such that your right ankle is resting above your left knee, and your right lower leg is just about parallel to the ground. NOW measure the circumference of your right upper thigh. It’s bigger!! Your thigh “spreads” in this sitting-down position, and pants that might get around your thigh comfortably when you’re standing WON’T necessarily have enough room in the thigh for you to comfortably sit down (and cross your legs in)!
So all you who lift and have some size to your legs, BE CAREFUL when trying on, or getting measured for, jeans, suits, tuxes, etc. MAKE SURE you do the sitting-down test to be sure they fit!
You my friend may well just have saved me several hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Thank you.
I will remember this next week when I go get fitted.
