Question Pants for us TALL Ballers?????

To all the tall ballers on the nation, Is it me or is finding a pair of pants that will be long enough in the inseam hard or what? I currently own some old school Draxxus pants that are size xl, and just long enough to where they rest on the top of my shoes. I have dropped some weight and have maxed the belt system on these pants as far as they will go. I have even teid the belt straps in a knot and have to wear a pair of shorts underneath just to keep them from falling down

Anyway I can easily buy a new pair of pants to adjust for the waist problem, my issue is the inseam!! Browsing all the manufactures that sell pants it seems that all the pants run so damn short in length, (31/32) in like sizes med/lrg, unless u jump all the way up to xl & xxl then u pick up a tad in length with inseams (33/34). But I cant wear that kind of size...

My question is can anyone give me some input on any pants that they currently are wearing and that are long enough and not high water/flooding looking pants?

I am 6'3 198lbs

I'm in the same boat as you man (6'2" 175lbs) and I can't find pants for the life of me. Anything I find that fits my height is about 8 inches too big in the waste and anything that fits my waste is a pair of capris -___- On a more helpful nope i did notice that 2011 Empire pants run a slightly smaller waste than the 2012 so that may be a decent option. I might have to try a pair at my local shop to see what fits good. Also if I remember correctly Planet Eclipse pants had a nice fit too.

6'3" here and still rocking my old pair of large Dye C4 pants. a tad big in my waist but long enough. I did get my gf a pair of xs pants and got a pair of small pants as well, part of a deal so don't care. I wear 34/34 jeans and apart from length, the small and xs pants actually fit. I would check medium or large and see how they fit from there.

Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through the comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.

I think that Planet Eclipse pants fit taller people a little better. I had XLs and they were perfect for the waist, but rode up on my groin and had some extra length to them.

I have a pair of redz XSV 32/34 and I'm reallly skinny. Length is perfect but the waist is too big. I just throw a belt on and I'm good to go.

6'2 here. I understand this gripe quite well after being down on one knee and getting shot in my bare ankle. I wear 34/34 casual, so ever since, I went out and bought XL PE pants to have them altered at a mom and pop neighborhood tailor for pretty cheap. Now Im comfortable without a belt, sagging, or flashing skin. Thats my suggestion to everyone. Good luck!

rocking the exact same pants dye c4s ftw. those pants are indestructible i've had mine for ages. the only thing that sucks is they're so stretched around the waist i have to pull the velcro tabs out and tie a not in them and they still fall down unless i have my pack on.

I had the same problem you do. Looking at the specs, you would think that all pants are cut for short fat people. However, it's misleading. You can basically ignore the inseam value. I'm 6' 2" and always wear a size large. The pants are plenty long. I think it might be due to paintball pants having a longer than average crotch, so the inseam can be shorter.

Good point, because otherwise all us tall ballers according to the manufactures specs, would be walking around with pants up to our shins.. I just picked up a pair of G.I. Sports pants that sponsor a few pro teams, gonna try them out and see...
