I have one pair of pants that truly fit me. They are made out of hemp by Patagonia, the greatest retail company in the history of the world. (They gave $10,000, iirc, to RHH a few years ago.) In every other style of jeans, it seems, I have a size 8-10 waist and size 12-14 thighs; European-sized brands like Lucky seem to be especially bad, but Gap jeans are lousy, too. Linda says it's because my quads are huge from cycling, God love 'er (in the parlance of our times), but I suspect it's a combination of weird things happening to my body after having two kids, and clothing designers hating women.
