I wear 32x38 in jeans, this makes it very hard to find climbing or ski pants that fit me. I pretty much only wear "manpris" to climb in, and I have one pair of MH ski pants in the "long" that i have had for many years now. I would guess they are around 33x35s. They are a little short, but with boots, it works okay, but I always feel a bit restricted. I was wondering if anyone out there has suggestions for pants ski or rock that would work for my not-average dimensions. Paul-B

mh stopped making tall sizes, i think marmot gave it up recently too. arcteryx seems good but im 32x36 so may be worse for you. north face may still do some tall sizes too. Kevin Connolly

A friend is 6'6" (don't know his pant size) but he swears by First Ascent everything. They have screaming deals occasionally and he stocks up on the tall sizes. Easy to return to the store when buying online. alpinejason

I've heard pretty good stuff about this company and they take their "Guaranteed Fit" claim pretty seriously.

Arcteryx tall sizes work for me, but I'm 32x34. If you're 32x38 then custom clothing from someone like BeyondClothing may be your only option. The downside with BeyondClothing is that you're ordering sight unseen. You'll get an accurate fit to your waist size and inseam, but it's hard to tell up-front whether the overall look & style is what you want. Martin le Roux

Patagonia will sell you unhemmed pants. Obviously only in the ones without zippers etc.. Mikecease

NWAlpine can likely make you something in a lenght that works. I'm only 6'3", 32x34, and it's really hard for me, so I can imagine how difficult for you it is.

One option I've wanted to try is use normal pants or tall size, then take down the hem and add to it with additional scuff guard type material. If integrated with the scuff guard (i.e. remove and replace it with your new material) it could work pretty well, and you don't need to use a breathable shell material down over ski boots as you can get away with a simple waterproof nonbreathable fabric i.e. cordura.

+1 for arborwear. they're a small-ish company and will probably work with you if you need a weird size smithb
