Maybe you do a bunch of squats and deadlifts, or you run sprints at the track? Do you have a bigger build in general, but you still want a clean, sharp casual look? Buying the right pair of jeans can be tough when you're a bigger guy. You have a slimmer waist, but huge thighs and calves, which means sizing up in jeans so your legs fit... but then the waist is too big and you just have to live with it. Super annoying. But I recently bought a pair of Levi's 541 athletic fit jeans and they're awesome for this exact problem. While I'm no massive powerlifter, I do have bigger legs that don't fit comfortably in slim cut jeans (unless I size up in the waist). This pair was the best of both worlds: fits perfectly at the waist (I can buy my actual size), comfortable in the seat, thighs, and calves, yet STILL tapered down to the leg opening. The result? A comfortable pair of jeans that doesn't look like sausage casings on my legs, while still being sharp and tapered. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­-------- S H O P T H I S V I D E O → Levi's 541: http://amzn.to/2HPnimv → J.Crew chambray shirt: http://fave.co/2DHyP4O → Uniqlo cardigan: http://fave.co/2DGR7mO → Allen Edmonds Sedona loafer: http://amzn.to/2G03EUA S H O P A L L M Y R E C S → https://effortlessgent.com/shop M Y V I D E O / B U S I N E S S T O O L S → Build your email list — https://effgnt.co/egck → My web hosting (20% off) — https://effgnt.co/egwpe → Cam 1 (Canon SL2) – https://amzn.to/2Lpz9ui → Cam 2 (Canon EOS M6) — https://amzn.to/2wcJmGI → Lens 1 (18-35 f/1.8) — https://amzn.to/2xVRM3N → Lens 2 (24mm f/2.8) — https://amzn.to/2riXB7q → Lens 3 (50mm f/1.8) — https://amzn.to/2w90VHE → Tripod — https://amzn.to/2LorCvt → Laptop — https://amzn.to/2JPZzDG → Mic — https://amzn.to/2riRksd *some of these are affiliate links, which means I earn a few cents (at no cost to you) if you make a purchase.

I have 16" calves. I'm sick of trying on jeans in the store and the damn leg opening is 15.5" or 16". I don't like that tight feeling.

Mine are close to 18" calves and when I buy relaxed fit jeans, people assume I'm wearing boots. When I tell them those are my calves they give me this "good gosh man" look. I usually stick with Chinos or Joggers. I found Levi Strauss S67 Athletic to fit me best.

I bought these jeans before. I did like how they fit, so I bought some black ones (like the ones within the video), kind of dark navy blue, and then like a real jean color (like light blue). I tried on the jean color ones in the store by the way. Now, the thing is even though each one is the same size, they all fit differently. The navy blue fits the most snuggest. I did some research & others were mentioning the same problem. One person mentioned each color is not made in the same country. So, you if are considering buying these, try each color on in the store.
Effortless Gent (2 months ago)
Yeah that's pretty common with bigger brands. That's why it's important to try a few of the same size to make sure you get a pair that fits you really well, i.e. if you're a 32x30, take 3 pairs of 32x30 in the fitting room w/ you and try them all on.

Anything that doesn't make my thighs big I am willing to try I just want the "manly" look not a look that shows off my body lol

Effortless Gent will do thanks
Effortless Gent (4 months ago)
I'd say these are manly. Give it a shot.
Rex Erection (5 months ago)
So athletic fits are bigger than slim fit? I didnt know the difference. Ive seen dress shirts athletic fit as well.
Rex Erection (5 months ago)
Effortless Gent Thanks man always very helpful. Btw a video on skin tones and colors that look best for your skin tone would be awesome 👍
Effortless Gent (5 months ago)
Athletic fits are bigger in certain places to accommodate an athletic body type. So for jeans, that typically means more room in the seat (butt) and thighs (and with the Levi's 541 specifically, a taper down to the ankle). For shirts, usually it's more room in the chest / back / shoulders, tapered midsection.

Yes, the ones shown here aren't too bad. It's those ones that dudes wear that look like they belong on Beyoncé....that's the look that needs to stop

Men, just dress like men, for crying out loud! This tight, bladder-rubbing look must stop!

Marc Cowans (8 months ago)
These are my favorite jeans!. I need to order another pair in black
Effortless Gent (8 months ago)
Yeah my first pair was in black, I want a dark and medium wash blue now
Epic Gardening (8 months ago)
Literally just picked these up before AdThrive. Used to rock the 511's, but let's just say these fat legs can't pull them off anymore.
Rex Erection (5 months ago)
Epic Gardening Do you squat or train legs?
Epic Gardening (8 months ago)
More like I thought I could, hahaha
Effortless Gent (8 months ago)
Haha man, I could NEVER fit in the 511s. Tried a few times, thinking something would change. At least you could say you once fit in them ;)
Dan McKeown (8 months ago)
I found 541s last year and they have been awesome. One issue I have though is that the sizing on them isn't as consistent as I'd like. Edit: I rewatched the video and realized that you mentioned that only some of the 541s have stretch in them. I'm going to have to go through my different pairs and see which ones do and which ones don't. Great video Barron!
Effortless Gent (8 months ago)
Yeah, only some! the non-stretch denim definitely feels tighter (understandably). I'm all about some stretch. Thanks for watching!
jeff deal (8 months ago)
Agreed on the stretch. I normally wear 513's and the occasional 511's and one time I bought a pair of 511's on ebay that were 100% cotton, no elastane/stretch. They still sit on the hanger to this day. 1-3% elastane is a MUST if you have thighs. Evidently women figured this out ages ago. I always wondered about the 541's but I have so many jeans now that I haven't bothered shopping, but next time I have some free time I will try on some 541's. The Arizona 'athletic fit' was what got me into jeans in the first place before I lost a bit of weight, so you guys may consider that option as well - they typically go on sale for $20-25 at JC Penney's all the time.
Effortless Gent (8 months ago)
If you fit into 513 / 511, the 541 will probably feel too big on you. If you're looking for a pair with a taper, go with the Levi's 512 slim taper... those would work better I imagine :)
coolerfiend (8 months ago)
Brosefs, check out abercrombie athletic slim (or hollister athletic skinny, same cut). From the knee down they are a levis 511 but from the knee up they are a 541. Win win
jeff deal (8 months ago)
I may be biased, but those brands are notoriously thin in their cuts i.e. may not favor 'athletic' i.e. strongfat kinda guys that may have waists higher than say 34 inches. Even in my highschool days an abercrombie "XL" shirt fit like a medium of any other brand, and the shorts/pants were an inch or two less roomy than your typical american brands.
Effortless Gent (8 months ago)
Great suggestion, thanks! I don’t fit in 511 from the knee down but I’m sure many guys need something in that fit
Debonaire Gamer (8 months ago)
Awesome video, buddy! You just can't beat the feeling of wearing an awesome pair of jeans :-)
