    Hi! I am an EMT student and I am having some trouble finding good pants in my area. I have tried on several different brands ranging from 511 to even ****ies. My problem is that I have a smaller waist and big thighs, so every pant is too big on my waist and too tight in the thigh. Didn't know if anyone had any suggestions.

    I prefer the 5.11 brand to any others. They are made better for my certain body type. You may have to just end up getting a belt and tightening the waste. I know a few people in my class that had to do that.

    Buy a couple pair in the ball park and bring them to a tailor for alterations. Not expensive and you'll come off far more professionally.

    No big deal

    Maybe I should read the OP's post before posting my response. Looks like my good buddy VentMonkey already linked the tread that came to mind after reading the OP's post.

    That and the two shots of Tin Cup Whiskey that I have under my belt.

    Keep calm and chase whiskey with more whiskey as... -PAF

    511 does offer a women's cut. That might help

    I wonder what the other brand was in the OP that got censored. Was it ****ies? If so, why censor it?

    Yeah. Thanks for the help guys. I am a woman and the women's cut really doesn't differ a whole lot from the men's cut. I'll probably just get a pair tailored. Thanks guys

    I love Propper. I'm a curvy girl and they fit the best. Last thing I want to deal with is feeling uncomfortable or tugging at my pants
