    It seems every work pant manufacturer assumes all men have twig legs and no butt. I don't skip leg day(s), so I have a pretty big butt, quads, and calves. I have torn through two pairs of dockers work pants up the seam at the "crack" while squatting down to pick something heavy up, and need something more durable with room for... Squats. I got some Carhartt tweed work pants in the mail today and they barely allow me to sit, let alone squat/bend over, which is not optional for my work. Dickies are OK, but I'd rather find something else. I'm about done with dockers pants as I'm wearing some old ones right now and the only way I can use them at work without ripping them is by going up two sizes, which looks unprofessional. I have tried on plenty of heavy duty "designer" pants (mark Anthony, banana republic, and some other randoms,) and the ones that are anywhere near my waist size are so tight it's laughable everywhere else. As in, I can't zip them up because of my butt. Anyone else have this problem/suggestions?

    i've always wanted to try some of Deluth's stuff. You may could try them. I want some of the long tail T's because i'm tall and it's hard to find T Shirts that keep their length if i want to tuck them in.

    They're really not that dressy (but there may be some out there), but chef pants could fit the bill for you. They're almost always pretty baggy (well, I have no butt).
    Chef Revival, Chefwear are two great brands. These look like they could be on the dressy side:

    I feel your pain. I've had to stop wearing underwear because I can't find anything to fit legs, butt, and waist all at the same time.

    My work requires a little more protection, risk/have caught on fire before, so all my stuff is fire ******ant. I like these in the winter and cooler days: Ariat® Work FR

    Nice to meet someone here that doesn't skip leg day. I own a gym, so if you ever want to "talk shop" in any of the off topic forums, Holla, lol.

    Leg day is the only thing I have. I drive a car without power steering.

    I find same problem, pants often split at the rear. Probably because they're all designed and made in China these days. People on average tend to have smaller rear ends here. Plus fashion is all about skinny and tight at the moment :rolleyes:

    It is only 1800 lbs. When I was rock climbing five days a week I had no weight time.
