i like this thread because i too have a fat ass & need new pants. trouble for me is that on top of my fat ass (wear 36 jeans at the moment..) i also wear padded shorts under my snowboard pants, so i'm struggling with what pants to buy in order to make sure i have room for both my ass & my shorts w/o being tight at all. i guess with my shorts i'm probably about a 38, so i guess i need something that goes 38-40 on the size scale.
and if i do that, then drop a couple inches off my fat ass, will i be able to just cinch up a belt and comfortably rock big pants? or will they be falling off me w/o the padded shorts? kinda confused as to what i should go for this season.
