Bfry86 Know the feeling being 6'0" 145 myself. I usually wear a 31/32 in most pants. Anyway, i just got a medium pair of Seymor's from north face. You can tighten the waist in three different spots making them the perfect width and length. Check them out for only $99.

DaToast I have the same problem as you. I am 6 feet tall and only 135 pounds. I bought the 686 smarty cargo in a small tall size. With the waistbands pulled tight and wearing a belt they fit me really well. I also own a volcom variable jacket which is gore-tex. I got it in a medium, which makes it fit a bit baggy but like Extremo said it makes me look much more proportional.

snowchris By looking for a snowboard pants for tall and thin men, I have seen that Burton proposes 3 type of style:
  • Team fit
  • Sig fit
  • Slim fit

The Slim fit pants could suit tall and thin men, no ?
Has anyone experienced Burton Slim fit pants ? (unfortunately for me, there is no real shop selling Burton snowboard pants close to where I live, so I can not try it)

You can find them here , just select Style=Slim fit in the dropdownlist.

Here are the 2 slim fit Burton pants:

crazyface idk. youve seen the pics. mine are completely yellow with two cargo pockets. thats all you can see. they are kinda baggy but i dont think there is any difference between "ski pants" and "snowboard pants".

snowchris Is the northface pants a snowboard pants ? or ski pants ?
Style matters

crazyface the northface pants have an adjustable waistband with velcro and elastic stuff. you can easily adjust the waist and it will stay that way as long as you want until you adjust it again.

Do you mean this pants ? Men's Monte Cargo Pant | HyVent Fabric | The North Face
I read the description, there was nothing said about a special tall length. How much do you have to reduce the waist of this pants to match your waist ?

I think 'Black tall' is kind of color for them, as it is listed in the color list.

Do you have any recommendation among their pants ?

That's why I am looking for some recommendation here
I guess tall and thin men need some specially design snowboard pants

crazyface i have pretty much the same exact dimensions as you. i use the northface monte cargo pants in Medium. they have a really adjustable waist so you can easily tighten them to fit and the length goes right to the bottom of my boot when standing. for a jacket i wear a stoic bombshell insulated jacket in Large. the jacket fits a lttle wierd because it is kinda short and wide, but it works pretty well.
