Naahhhhh , just a problem with clothes makers who think that anyone with a forty-two waistline has skinny little legs . The last time I asked a store clerk for pants with a thirty-four inch inseam they looked at me like I was a freak .

Jack, 42 waist and 34 inseam doesn't sound all that strange to me...you are just a big guy. I wear Lee jeans because they fit me better than Levi's anyway, I am into a tight 36 waist and 32 inseam. I weigh in at about 200 lbs, so I am big too, always have been. JS. Papascull ;) ;)

I'm a 44x31. The 44 is mostly because, after decades of walking, my legs are a bit well developed. It's my lower legs that cause the problem, as they are not in the "normal" range.

At 6' 2", my inseam is also short. This gave me a boost in upper body strength, having so much upper body, but, after almost 65 years, it has lead to some issues with that long back. :!:

I'm the exact opposite of ya'll. I wear 31x38s, I'm all legs and no upper body. I can wear 36 lengths, but once they get washed a few times they end up being too short.

I wear 32x36 in "regular" pants, as I haven't found anyone but Wrangler who makes 31x38s. No one stocks them, but I used to have a friend who special ordered Wranglers in 30x44! :shock:

Ain't we a real crew :?: :) :?: It'd be enough to drive a quartermaster to drink . Come to think of it that last quartermaster at the motel I was working for was an olympic champion at the sport of drinking .

I never walked as much as a postal carrier but I did get in my share of leg excercises . Now after hearing about 38 inseams , I don't feel near so bad :!:

I go to an old folk's home every one or two weeks and see and hear about the physical woes the elderly live with. One woe makes it so that another woe won't improve, etc. It's very sad and sort of scary to me. I'd like to avoid as much of that difficulty in my later years as I can.

I get so darn little exercise where I work, basically sitting in a chair most of the day, sometimes standing in place part of the day. I get out in the boonies very little in the last couple of years due to work and family commitments so I haven't been hiking or shooting or fishing much at all.

So, I'm trying to stay in shape regardless. Non-bulbous shape, anyway. :roll:
I'm 6'1" x 187 pounds buck naked; 34x36 butt covers.
I do calisthenics every morning religiously and have for a decades (pushups, situps, bend and reach, etc.) That helps a ton. On weekends I get out and rollerblade on the pavement which is an excellent workout, and do yard work in the summer and shovel literally tons of snow in the winter, but that's about it.

I try not to eat crap food. I stay away from pig and potatos and don't allow margarine in the house; never ever drink soda pop and only rarely eat any kind of sugary stuff (I do have a thing for extra dark chocolate and extra dark beer though).

I know it's a battle we all lose eventually, but I'm going to try and keep the medical bills to a minimum as long as I can. Like I said, it's sad at the old folk's home.

I wear 7.62X51, real skinny and 9' tall. I can't get jeans with two legs, just one!
