People make a living off of sewing, use it to your advantage.
Obviously you don't know the troubles of not fitting into the standard size.

Every pair of pant I buy I have to hem unless they have a "short" version of the pant so I'm pretty familiar with "The Seamstress". In your short mindedness you may have not realised that it's much trickier and VERY expensive to have items such as snowpants shortened. There's cuffs and gators to deal with not to mention it could reduce the waterproof quality at the seams. Finally, I'm pretty sure that most companies will void the warranty on the product should it be altered.

Taking the time to ask about and find a short version snowboard pant (which do exist) will save a lot of time, money and hassel in the future. Next time you make an asshole smartass remark make sure you have your facts straight.


To those of you who actually gave me some info, thank you so much! I'm going to look into the Burton pants as soon as I have a chance.
