These jeans are one of my favorite now! I have always had problems in finding jeans that fit my big thighs without going 1-3 sizes up. My hips are 33.5inch and my thighs are ~25". My height is 5'7'' and weight 166 pounds with a muscular build. Size 30 was a perfect fit. These jeans runs a little tight in the thighs area but since it is stretch it is extremely comfortable. What I like the most is that even though it fits tight in the upper legs, it fits a little bit lose from the knee to the feet (straight cut not skinny-like), which from my point of view is what keeps the jeans with a fit cut but still manly.
