i always thought 686 ran big...maybe it was his cut?

true that but really other than these two you have to be careful. for example special blend which has traditionally been baggy now has three different cuts the tightest being the bronco and then a mid and max baggy. holden and airblaster are pretty much guaranteed to be tight fit. burtons ronin stuff runs baggy but the ak lines are closer to " normal ". all in all i think the best thing is to try stuff on first just to be sure. buying blind online can be risky and tbh i wouldnt do it unless it was a stupid good deal or the site had a gr8 return policy.

Oh god, snowboarding pants aren't going to go all "normal clothes" on me are they?

I can't buy jeans anymore. Do I want slim or low rise or bootcut or relaxed fit? What the crap? I want pants!

Nomis runs big if you want style so does Sessions and DC
If you go with Sessions, make sure it's the baggy fit. Their loose fit doesn't run big.

forum was bought by burton last year so expect there items from this year to fit more like burton than traditional special blend gear.

Can't really classify entire brands as tight or baggy. These days, brands have different lines with different fits, so it's hard to say. In general (for example) Foursquare, 686, Special Blend tend to run a bit looser than Burton, Holden, Vans (from my experience).

im a big guy also... 6'1" 245. 40 waist

i picked up a vans jacket *not sure which one just bought it cuz it fit and was nice* in XL and it had a great fit and then for pants

i picked up a pair of XXL sessions in their park fit which is more baggier and they fit excellent with a little space to tighten up.

try those out
