Well, since you're only one quad... ;D

Anyway, 24 for the left and 24.5 for the right. I suppose if I'd wear belts they'd be fine, but most pants that don't feel too tight in the thigh are too loose in the waist for me. The pants that fit fine in the waist and thigh tend to drag a bunch on the ground, though that could be fixed if I could find someone to hem up my pants. It probably also depends on the style and brand I suppose. Oh and calipers show that I'm fat in the thighs so perhaps after the diet I won't be so "large" in the legs.

And as far as leg size goes it's more that I want to balance my upper body which is scrawny in comparison to my legs. I have photos up in my log. And I'll post some update photos when I'm done with my RFL diet, which might be by this Thursday or so as I'll have to take a break since I should be Cat 1 by then.

Welcome to the world of athletic women. Hello, spandex!

LOL I should have been more clear.
Look for jeans with some kind of stretch material. Even 2% spandex makes a difference, and doesn't look "spandex-y" at all.
I'm assuming they make jeans with stretch for men, but I truly haven't a clue.

Exact same here. I've never had any problems, maybe only with those ridiculously skinny leg jeans, but thats not really a problem

I guess it is a matter of preference, I like some "breathing room" in my jeans. My legs are only 22" and I some 32/32s are uncomfortable on me so I make sure to go for the wide cut.

Fact: gay fashion designers have reduced the leg circumference of popular jeans brands the last few years.

Adjusting your training to get smaller legs, so you can accommodate the fancy of a skinny weirdo with huge non-prescription glasses speaking with a lisp, is fundamentally retarded IMO.

GASP jeans are great, and there should be plenty of street fashion jeans with bigger legs if you just try going to other stores than GAP or Wal-mart once in a while.
