Well, Women's jeans certainly have more different cuts than do men's. I see a guy in Rehoboth Beach al the time who wears women's tops and bottoms--but they just seem to make his bulge show even more. The trick is that once you find a good pair of fitting pants (and you have to go to every men's store and try on everything beofre you will)--you stick with that company/cut forever. I have 5 pairs of Gap Bagy fit jeans and 5 pairs of Docker ProStyle pleated pants. They are the only pants that fit me.
