DH is very slim hip, no butt. RTW jeans are not a great fit on him. I'm needing a men's jeans pattern, but we just made up the new Vogue one and it was a complete wadder, right into the trash, for a variety of reasons not related to fit that I could alter reasonably.

I know Kwik Sew has one, but I have heard it runs quite large/husky, which doesn't seem a good match for us. I have read the reviews on the Hot Patterns one and don't even want to go there it sounds so bad.

Soooo, is there a good pattern out there I am missing?

Ron Collins wears the Kwik Sew ones and he is slender. His were beautiful - made up in a variety of colours and weights of linen and denim.

Cheap fabrics, like cheap shoes, are a false economy.

Thanks. I might relook at the KS one. Hot Patterns I was aware of and initially excited, but the threads on the message board said it seemed to have errors in drafting so I might stay away from that.

Wish Jalie would make one - I bet it would be good!

The Kwik Sew should work. You may need to size down, so maybe make a muslin?? Or, just make your first pair w/cheap denim. DH thinks there's not quite enough butt space in his, and I had added the usual extra space. Maybe a good sign for you?? I was one of the Hot Patterns jeans bashers. Just gross jeans!

Jalie 2107 would work for jeans if you left off the cargo pockets. I haven't tried it yet but it looks like it has good reviews.

use the kwik sew that has the waist measurements. Not the s-m-l-xl. I have that pattern It dosn't fit well. Get the one that has waist measurments they fit the best. My son and husband are both slim in the hips and no but. If i make a pair that fits the waist it will fit in the hip. You can always slim the sides down to fit better.
Hope this Helps. Also try looking at kwik sew pattern 413 it is a juinor teen jean pattern that is slimmer. there is one one ebay.

Would Burda work? I know the hips/butt measurements are smaller than the Big Four for equivalent waist sizes.

Is there a recent Burda one? I have a burda other pants but haven't made it for him yet. They size differently I know, by chest or something? I forget, but the pattern I got I did match up to his measurements and he was in the size range. I got him a dress pants one.

He is 32 waist. The older Kwik Sews with sizes instead of S/M/L/XL (the newest one) seem to start at 36? Is this correct? In a remarkable coincidence I actually own KS 3642 somehow (must have been given to me or something) but it starts at a 36.

I'll check the juniors one right now searching.

My DH has a lovely hourglass figure, so I haven't bothered with Burda pants for him other than the leiderhosen (which didn't come in anything close to his size). I thought they did, but I didn't see one on Simplicity's site.

Every man's pants pattern I own uses chest size, not waist size. It's just about driven me nuts when I cut them out!
