The thought that went into making these pants for a lean, fit man deserves a huge thumbs up! My son works out everyday he is 6’3, slim waist, large thighs, huge chest. I am so grateful to have found your website. The pants washed well, look new. Sometimes black pants fade fast these did not, nor did they shrink.
Hands down best fitting pants I’ve ever had. I’m 5’11’ husky with big muscular legs. I’m usually a 36 and I Had to exchange to get a 34. The exchanging process was fast and easy.
Bottom-line up front: these pants are phenomenal.
I have been playing hockey, soccer, and high level rugby for the last twenty years. I take stairs two-at-a-time, and I definitely know where the squat rack is at the gym. I have a 32 waist, and typically wear size 34 or 36 pants depending on the brand. I cannot wear anything that is labeled “tapered” or “slim” otherwise I look like I am purposely wearing skinny pants.
I was skeptical about ordering these chinos online, without having to try them on first, mainly because I have been disappointment too many times before from ordering clothes off the Internet.
But then I threw up the Hail Mary got a size 32... and now I can never go back. Barbell Apparel is the company I have been waiting for all these years. The pants fit the waist, without making my thighs look stupid, and are very comfortable. Literally the first day I wore them, an angry older guy at work (who doesn’t care about me) commented that they were some nice pants and asked what brand they were. Boom! Validated!
In the immediate future, I am going to be buying more variants of these same pants.
Thank Barbell Apparel
P.S. - Customer service was real nice when I called to enquire about the chinos, before placing an order. Shout out to Kyle and Josh.
I ordered the Chino Pants in ash. The first pair were too large so I sized down, with the return service provided by barbell being super prompt. I think I posted my pants for return on a Thursday and had the replacements Monday afternoon. DEFINITELY order down unless you like your pants in quite loose around the waist (honestly I could probably size down even more but was worried I'd lose some of the space through the rest of the legs). I ended on size 32; for reference I'm 6'5 215ish.
The best I ever had...
These are my favorite pants of all time now. Love Barbell's jeans but these somehow are even better. I don't think I will buying pants anywhere else for a while now.
Very comfortable and they look great. Advice: order at least a size down from your other pants but other than that you can't go wrong with any Barbell jeans or chinos.
Only pants I wear. Just got 4 pair !
Awesome fit, great look, solid durability and I can throw a head kick. These are my got-to jeans; and man do they look great.
