Tough luck if you're tall and thin

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Teecorkbow from Madison, WI on Wednesday, August 31, 2011
I'm discovering that snow pants are not designed for tall, thin men. Most American brands aren't. Being 6'1" and 155 lbs, finding any pants that even fit me, never mind actually look good, is not easy. Snow pants are even more difficult. The waist (XS or 28-30) is good, but the legs are WAY too short (also 28-30). The inner lining snakes out awkwardly below the cuffs. To be sure, snowboard or downhill ski boots would mostly cover up this discrepancy, but it still looks awkward and ill-fitting. And frankly, these pants still run too baggy. I'm 34 and wore baggy pants when I was a skater in my teens. Those days are over now, and I feel like a goof having a quarter life crisis dressing like that in these pants.

The search goes on for long, thin, waterproof, warm ski pants.
