Jeans of the non-skinny variety. - 11/7/2012 1:23:03 PM

With the cult of skinny jeans seemingly never-ending, it seems like tough times out there for the discerning jeans buyer who doesn't like having their legs encased in tight material. I'm looking to buy new jeans just now as my current few pairs are needing replacing, but a lot of the high street stores that I've tried just haven't been cutting the mustard. A great deal of what they stock, even the 'loose' or 'easy' fits, just aren't. I long for the likes of Gap to re-introduce jeans that they used to stock like their 'worker' or 'carpenter' jeans; they were baggy and the material wasn't too starchy, making them very comfortable to move around in.

So, dear reader, the thrust of this thread is that I'm looking for suggestions of places where I can buy baggy jeans that aren't too starchy. I'm not looking for MC Hammer pants or anything, but something like the style of jeans that I mentioned above that Gap used to stock. I'm not fat, so it's not a case of me not buying the right pair, it just seems like everything is so figure hugging.

Can anyone recommend shops worth checking out?

If it isn't beneath you TK Maxx may have some stuff; the usual crowd will be hanging around the tracksuit section so you should have the jeans to yourself.

I'm surprised that you weren't able to get any from GAP though; I bought some last year that called themselves "low rise boot cut" that did the trick

My thighs are way too big for skinny jeans and I dislike 'baggy' jeans, and I'm tall, so I struggled for years to find decent fitting jeans that weren't too big or too thin.

If this sounds like what you're after, I highly recommend Wrangler's 'Texas Stretch' style of jeans, which are incredibly comfortable, fit to the body but without looking like they shrunk in the wash. They sell them at Debenhams if you need to try them.

I've always found that Burtons stock a reasonable variety - relaxed fit, bootcut, regular etc.

Yep, can't stand skinny jeans either.

Personally I always find that Next's Boot Cut jeans suit me just fine, they're loose and comfortable but not so much that my arse is hanging out and I look like I skateboard in my spare time.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll look into a few of the suggestions and see what I come back with.

Burton's did the job just nicely. Got exactly what I was after in there.

Nice one - glad you were successful! I can't stand skinny jeans myself, so it's annoying when so many places just adhere to the skinny/slim-fit styles of late. Not exactly accomodating to the less skinny/androgynous looking men out there!
