Jeans come in all shapes and sizes. If you’re having a hard time finding the one that will wrap around your waist and match your height perfectly, this blog is made for you.
Let's face the truth, bigger and taller guys have the hardest time picking the best fits for them. They don’t have many options to choose from. What usually happens is whenever they got their eyes to a clothing piece with their size, they instantly grab it needless of their fashion style preference.
Fortunately, companies like AKINGS have jeans for big guys looking to step up their denim game. You don’t have to worry about choosing between style and comfort when you can have the best of both worlds.
SIZES FOR BIG AND TALL GUYS
The average height for American adults is 5 feet and 9 inches tall, based on the CDC Trusted Source in 2018. Big and tall men’s jeans usually range from 40 to 70 inches for the waist measurements suitable for those whose weight falls between 165 to 250 pounds. Men with these measurements usually have a size 34 to 40 pants suitable for guys with 5’9 to 7” in height.
To sum that up, here’s a table of the average measurements for big and tall men’s jeans:
5’9 - 7” feet
40 - 70 inches
165 - 250 pounds
34 - 40
Different brands have different size chart and more likely than not you'll need to confirm if they would fit you by trying them on.
If finding the best fitting jeans for your waist and thighs wasn't enough, you'll also have to make sure the inseam is good enough for you to fit.
What are inseams and why are they important?
Inseam is the length of the jeans’ leg. It is the measurement from the top of your thigh to the bottom of the leg. Basically, it is the inside leg measurement of the pants.
With the right inseam measurement, it is easier to buy online without the risk of getting shorter or longer pants.
Tips in measuring your inseams:
If you want your pants to have an extra length to make them look longer, add half an inch from your inseam.
On the other hand, subtract half an inch from your inseam to make them look shorter.
HOW TO MEASURE JEANS SIZE FOR MEN?
Here are two options to get your sizes. Knowing your actual measurements can make your life easier and allows you to have a seamless shopping experience.
Option 1: Measuring your actual size
Stand up straight and make sure your shirt isn’t interfering with the process to get accurate measurements.
Breath normally and measure your waist properly. Don’t wrap the measuring tape around your waist too tight or too loose.
Go down from your waist and measure your hip size.
Don’t forget to measure your thigh!
Most importantly, measure the inseam from the crotch area to the end of your leg before the ankle.
Option 2: Less hassle!
If you already own a pair of pants that fits you well, grab them and measure the waist, thigh, and inseam. This is a great reference if you don’t want to choose the first option.
Make sure to button up the jeans and spread them on a flat surface.
THE POWER OF J-SHAPE PANTS
Why J-shape? J-shape jeans are the solution for tall men looking to find the best fitting jeans. It’s the kind of investment that you would want to keep in your closet permanently and keep wanting more.

Here are the most sought after J-shape jeans for big and tall guys.
The founder of AKings, Alan King, understands the struggles of spending much time and money just to find denim jeans that accurately fit both the waist and inseam. His creativity led to the creation of J-shape denim.
The J-shape denim is designed to be a modern addition to tech-wear design. Curved legs are a design element meant to solve the problem of finding the best inseam fit.
Instead of having to find large pants that have un-proportional inseam to waist measurements, stacked jeans made by AKINGS offer a tapered fit, so your legs look proportional to your body shape.
J-shape denim such as the AKINGS’ Kyle pants has the ability to stretch to fit people whose weight falls somewhere between 100 to 250 pounds. Comfortable and stretchy jeans with incredible design, that’s how we like it!
