Special Blend Pant Sizing

Do Special Blend Commander pants run a little big? I am looking at the Special Blend Commander pants in the Brainbow, size XXL to match my SB jacket. The sizing charts say XXL is 38-40 waist, but I wear a 42 waist in jeans (Levi and Lee). I know they have a powder skirt so I can sag them until i lose a little weight, but do the pants typically run a little big?

I know my jacket fits a little looser than I expected, and the commander pants are a baggier fit pants

Okay I didn't know if their pants ran a little big. You know of any decent pants I could get at my size? I'm gonna be hitting the Hydroxycut and dieting and working out starting next week, so I can probably lose a few inches.

I need brown pants that run big as an XXL, the cheaper the better

recently ordered the special blend divison pants in a medium, im a waist 32 and with their sizing chart i was on the line between small and medium..went with the medium cus i figured i can always wear a belt or adjust the tightness, some pants have the waist adjustment so i'd check if yours do..as to how baggy they are im not too sure, have heard that they run a little baggy..either way i dont think you should worry about the baggy part just whether the waist fits..snowboard pants are ment to be baggy, isn't that how we get steez points anyway? hah jk..hope that helped

Sessions and Vans make an XXL that fits comfortably on a 42" waist.

You might even fit into a Sessions XL if you're more 41" than 42".

Got a Zumiez near you? Check out their pants (Aperture, Empyre). Their XL is 42", and comes with a nice pricetag.

Check out Bonfire pants also... I just bought a pair of Special Blend XXL pants and I'm in the same boat as you. They fit but not comfortably... in fact my XL Bonfire's fit more comfortably than the XXL Special Blends do.

What size waist are you? And what model of bonfire pants do you have?

I'm a 40" in jeans but really a 42" for anything else. I forget the Bonfire model I have, they're from a couple of years ago... Particle maybe?

I am 6 foot tall, and 180lbs. I wear a medium in the special blends and they are still really baggy.
