    I hate shopping for pants.

    I'm pretty sure there is no store which sells 33 x 29 pants. Because we all know you can either be tall and skinny, or short and fat.

    I'm going direct you both to the nearest suicide booth.

    I have a 41" waist but I can wear 36 jeans. Figure that **** out.

    Purchasing pants sucks ass. I have long legs, and my waist kinda fluctuates, depending on the brand. I'm usually a 34-36 or 36-36.

    I've finally grown my belly into my pants.... but I've been wearing 38s-40s for a few years now because of the size of my legs. I start cutting on monday so my waist will again shrink and make me wear belts that scrunchie up the waiste of my pants..

    32 x 30 is easy, it's everywhere. It's usually what I wear because I can't find any 33 x 29. So I end up with pants I have to squeeze into that look like bellbottoms because they bunch up around my foot.

    I did actually find a decent 33x30 at the Gap.. it was the last of that size on the rack unfortunately or I would've bought about 10 pairs.

    Same with me, and even then they're too tight for my liking. I just went pant shopping for a wedding and after trying two pairs on, I was breaking out in a sweat and ready to knock the changing rooms over. I just took whatever and went home.

    I know what you mean. I must've tried at least 30 pairs of jeans on yesterday, and only found 1 good one. Just said **** it and went home.

    I'm too lazy to find a place to do that for me, but I have thought about it.

    There was a custom pant site where you could specify every measurement too but I forget the name and I think it was only jeans. I hate jeans, haven't work them since elementary school.

    It seems for my height my legs are short and VERY thick.. this makes it hard as **** to find pants.

    I could probably wear 42's but I have ZERO leg room... I can't even sit in them comfortable, it looks as if my legs are going to escape through the seams of the jeans.

    So I gotta wear loose cut 46's with a belt. Doing this makes it look somewhat funny but at least they fit in my legs, without the belt they would be around my ass within a few steps.

    I probably should have some tailored, but its easier to just buy them 4 sizes too big and wear a belt.

    Shopping for pants became much easier when I started wearing 38x30. Simple answer: Gain weight.

    This is been a huge problem of mine. I have one pair of jeans and I look like a gorilla trying to fit into a tutu. Between the falling over, sweating, and fists swinging in the air I have officially decided jeans suck. What was my solution: athletic shorts. I wear 'em to church, school, and just about any other occasion. Once I can get down to 195ish I will buy some nice $100 and then force my ass to fit in them. Until then, I'm going nylon.

    I hear ya. My fav. style of jeans fits best at a 38x30 (at least once I break them in) yet I have to go 42x30 for my dress clothes. And then I have the issue of the pleats when I sit down. Fun stuff.

    I have and I would probably never do it again, or if I did maybe go somewhere different. They were a nice pair of pants and they never looked or felt the same.
