Default Pant extension.

Bought some Burton pants this summer, i was about 6 feet, in XL and they did fit great. 4 months later and im 6'3 by a miracle , pants are borderlining not fitting. Can i get some fabric and extend them? its on the bottom so waterproofing doesn't matter but i don't have an idea where to go, or where to get any fabric. I would need about 4 inches longer.

If you bought em during the summer I'm guessing you haven't worn them right? Maybe see if your store will let you exchange them for something longer before you go hacking away on them.

Otherwise you could go the complete other way and rip 'em off at the hip daisy duke style and get some flesh colored leggings to go under them for warmth.

Summer sale = no returns. Asked Burton but didn't get a reply. I might post a pic of how it looks now but i like my pants a little longer, but by no means baggy.

before you do any ghetto hacking and stitching if i were you i'd take em into a sewing/alterations shop and see what they'd charge you to do it...

chances are it'd be cheap ~$20 or something close i'd imagine, and they will make it look perfect - its what they do.

dude, look in a phone book or google one for your neighborhood, they're all over the fucking place. look for "alterations" or "sewing" or just go bring them into a fabric store and ask one of the old ladies that work there.
