Nice. Wish I had that problem. I need to lose some weight myself. To keep my pants tight and the stripes straight I made myself some removable stirrups. I used Clips and Elastic. I just stuck the elastic thought the loops on the clips and folded it over and stapled them.

That's exactly what I was thinking to do... adding stirrups to keep them tight...

and as is obvious... I have yet to find boots that are better! the issue is purely size... size 12 with huge calves... lol

Stirrups are perfect for the job, that's what I use and the pants always look great....

Yeah, I use stirrups with both my (soon to be decommissioned) Han and my Kit Fisto. Anytime you have tall riding type boots and pants, unless they're supposed to be like directors/military jodpurs, you really pretty much need some sort of stirrup.

What I do, though, which is cheaper and less hassle is I have a sewn strip of 1" wide elastic strap that you can buy at any fabric, craft store or Walmart type place. What I did is sew a one foot strip from the outside seam, then put the pants on and pulled the strap around my foot at regular tension and marked it. Then when I took it off to sew, I pulled it up about another inch and a half and sewed the other end there, cutting off the excess. This method also avoids the metal clasps of standard clip on stirrups that can rub against your calf in a painful way and maybe even make a telling bump through your boot.

That's just another option. You can even hand sew it ... even if you're a pretty cruddy seamster, it won't matter because no on ever sees it.

One thing to do when you buy costume pants that are going to tucked into boots is to get regular fit pants, not lose fit or anything like that, because the regular fit pants have straight legs and those tuck into boots much better!

That, too! Yes, a good fit is essential, especially with Solo. Very slim look to it.

For all the years I portrayed Han..(From original release of SW waaaaayyy past RotJ)... I used to use this method to keep my trousers tucked in nice ... BEFORE you put your sock on (and you must use a regular length tube sock)...right at your ankle pull your trouser leg out at the front, then fold it over towards the outside of your ankle. With it tight like this, then put the sock on and PULL the top of the sock up and over the trouser. Keeps the trousers tight, and never had a problem with them working out. In fact I still use this method anytime I have trousers that need to stay tucked in.

(and hereare a couple of OLD pics of "The Corellian"
