Searching high and low for the best athletic fit jeans on the market? We’ve got all the crisp, comfortable denim your Crossfit-jacked legs can handle. Because no matter how outlandish and out-there menswear continues to become, a great pair of jeans will always be an unconditional wardrobe essential. Unless, of course, you’re a dude with prodigiously developed quads or a naturally fuller figure, in which case jeans are just a (literal) pain in the ass. Even with the skinny jeans era thankfully behind us, it can be difficult for bigger fellas to find denim that fits flatteringly and comfortably. Or it was, anyway, before a handful denim brands started tailoring their dungarees specifically to the needs of swoler physiques. Enter the athletic fit, a roomier and more forgiving silhouette that accentuates your legs rather than hiding them under a baggy, JNCO-esque curtain of fabric. If you’re a committed leg day practitioner or the proud owner of a dad bod, here are the best athletic fit jeans that’ll look and feel incredible straight off the rack.
