Okay, maybe I can find an answer here before I waste tons of money on return shipping.
By now I realize that Levi jeans aren't meant for me. They fit me a bit loose below the hip, and in the rump and crotch area, there is extra material. So the result is that it makes my butt and thighs rather large, which is embarrassing, since the rest of my body is rather skinny.
Can anybody recommend a pair of jeans that are not Levis that don't have excess cloth in the crotch/thigh area, and ride easy on the hips? Waist is 29, and Length probably 28 or 29. I'm sure companies have their own stereotypes on how they make/shape their jeans....
Many, many thanks to those who can solve my problem! I'll be buying blindly online, so online testimonial is all I have to go by.
