which brands run big?

when it comes to jackets and pants which brands run large? im a big guy and have only tried on burton and 686 jackets. i noticed that burton ran a little small. The 686 jacket i tried on was a xl and was just a bit too small. Anybody have holden, foursquare, or volcom? how do they run?

burton jackets too small, really? i found this years burton's to be madd baggy. also burton introduced their sig fits. posibly, were u trying on one of their slim fits? i own a last years burton 3l squawk and i found it to be less baggy then this years jackets. i found sessions to be large in the chest/waist area. u could also try and find a xxl?

well i could have fit into certain large jackets but... i found the shoulders to be too tight. so then i tried on a xl and they all fit large for me. so i just went and ordered a xl jacket online as i knew they would fit anyways. columbia's fit will probly be less baggy as its ski wear. a xxl jacket should fit you tho but it will probly be alot baggier than ur used to.

Helly Hansen, North Face, and MEC makes stuff in XXL
Nomis runs big if you want style so does Sessions and DC

and also really? the 686 is running small? maybe I had an isolated case with it, but I just bought a 686 UZI XL jacket on whiskey militia. I followed their measurement instructions that they had online, and when I got it, it was too big for me. I sent it back and now I am waiting for the large to come.
