Mens Pants Filter - Either the butt or the waist fits, but not both

Whenever I shop for pants or shorts, almost everything I try on either has a tight waist and comfortable butt, or tight butt and too-loose waist. This applies across various brands. I like to say that I'm little in the middle but I got much back, but my proportions aren't that strange. Skinny jeans don't fit me, but I'm not going for pleated dockers, either. I wear approximately a 30" waist and 28" inseam. Guys, can you recommend any brands that solve this problem?

Can these jeans be re-altered and still look normal?

A friend of mine gave me a couple of pairs of new "Gap 1969 Long & Lean" boot-cut jeans that she got altered before she decided they didn't really fit. She's an inch or two or more than two shorter than I am. I'm wondering if I could get them re-altered into a straight-leg (or maybe slightly tapered?) cut that I can roll up a little, but I don't know anything about sewing. [more inside]

Looking for a clothing website...

Is there any sort of website where you can input your measurements and it will tell you which brands or stores carry clothing that will fit you? My mom was telling me about such a site (the name of which she can't remember, and it was a few years ago, anyway) for jeans and I was wondering if something like that still exists and if one exists for clothing beyond jeans. Thanks.

Most Scenic High-Rise... Trousers

I am a lady with a small waist and a generous booty. I look best in "high-rise" or "high-waisted" pants because, well, my waist is pretty high, which means that the popular "low-rise" and "mid-rise" trousers leave acres of billowing flesh exposed between my actual waist and the waist of the pants. What brands or specific jeans or pants (or skirts) can I wear? I've had decent luck with Simply Vera for Kohl's skinny jeans with stretch. Any other suggestion from like-waisted ladies? [more inside]

Boot cut girl in a skinny jeans world

The era of skinny women's jeans has been here for a while, but I've still got a closet full of my perfectly good boot-cut and flared jeans. Can I wear these judiciously (even among young people) without looking embarrassingly out-of-touch? If not, should I try to alter them, or is there a chance they'll come back into style in a year or two anyway? [more inside]

Where to find good value on jeans?

I'm looking for a great value on everyday jeans. I don't mind spending decent money if that's what it takes, but I'd want that money to go towards quality materials and construction - I truly don't care about labels or fleeting fashions. I live in LA but I'd be cool with shopping online if that's where the value can be found. Anybody have pointers on places/brands that could help me out with this, or is it back to the Gap again?

I want to wear jeans without appearing as though I've gained 15 lbs.

Where can I find flannel-lined jeans that are not high-waisted and baggy and are available in petite sizing? Alternatively, if you know of another pants material that keeps your bottom half warm just as well and can be found in a modern & petite fit, I'm all ears. [more inside]

That's MISTER Assless Wonder to you!

I love my partner to death, and that includes his big, soft, warm body. But he has absolutely no butt or hips to hold up his pants, and no matter what he does he shows ass cleavage. He is, shall we say, lookin' like a fool. How does he fix this problem fashion-wise, and how do I manage my reactions to this so I don't insult the man that I love? [more inside]

Holy jeans need healing

My jeans always wear out in the spot right behind the crotch seam in the two rear quadrants formed by the four way seam intersection. It's not an area people generally tend to see and I could probably extend their wearable life considerably by patching the holes to keep my tackle from hanging out. Is there any easy way to patch these holes? Some product perhaps? I have no sewing machine, have never sewn a thing in my life and my mom is a giant ocean away.

Designer Jeans

I'm looking for a pair of jeans I saw someone wearing on the street today. I think I saw the same pair on Gwyneth Paltrow in People recently. They're women's jeans, low-rise, dark-ish, expensive looking, (hot!). They have a horizontal seam across the knee and snaps the size of nickels down the outside of the pant leg from knee to ankle. I've called several department stores and looked online, but I just can't seem to find them again. Help?
