Why? Because I'm tall. And, for some reason, most companies seem to think that there are no tall people in this world.

Finding clothes that actually fit is a bitch. It used to be easy, until the people I usually bought from stopped ordering stuff in for me. Also, clothes for tall people seem to be 3 times more expensive as clothes for "regular-sized" people.

I'm wearing a hoodie right now, which is size XL. When I extend my arms, there's a full 4 inches between the end of the sleeve and my wrist. I wear 36x36 pants. Finding that size is a bitch, because people seem to think that everybody in the world stops growing when they reach a 34" inseam. I was browsing sears catalogue once looking for pants. I found a lot that went up to 42" waist and 34" inseam. But were there any in my size? Of course not.

Why? Because the world likes fat... umm, sorry... large, people better than tall people.

It's fucking bullshit. And I'm sick of it. Why the hell should I have to spend 100 bucks american from some american company on the internet for a pair of jeans that actually fit, when everybody else around here's spending 30 bucks Canadian?

Bitches. All of them.

I know what your talking about. I need a 36" inseam too. But i have to go to Mens Big and tall and they have clothes that fit. I think they go up to 46" inseam but i am not sure. I am 6' tall and I way around 150 pounds. I am not fat, but they seem to think so....

Well, I'm 6'9" tall.

For waist, 34 is too small, 36 is too big, and there's no in between.

We don't have any big and tall stores here. Nearest one's in Prince George, which is a 4 hour drive.

well, I am only 5'8...therefore I am short. But the odd part is that i have a longer upper body when compared to my legs. Pants that fit around the waist are about 4-5 inches to long. I am not fat, i wear a size 28'. All of my sleeves never fit either.
So i feel for you unforgiven...well, i think that i do. Maybe im way the hell off here.
Wow...you are like a foot taller than i am. thats crazy.

The problem with that, eastside, is I can eat all I want and I won't get any bigger or gain weight.

I wear a 36 and just wear a belt with it.

I have a friend who's 6'8" that probably has similar problems. I know he wears a size XL shirt but I have no idea what he does for pants.

Don`t eat all you want, eat just things that are supposed to be good for you.. Well, at least junk food doesn`t make me any fatter but normal food does..

Are you constantly moving? Like tapping your foot, moving your leg when you're sitting down etc?

I think there was a study that suggested that people with a "higher motabolism" were constantly moving, and by moving losing calories, and collectively it turned out to be a lot of calories burnt per day...

I'm skinny as fuck, and I never stop moving... I'm only about 5'9" though, so clothes are easy...

I rarely stop moving.

My work makes me move a lot. And, when I'm sitting, it seems I'm always shaking my leg.:happysad:

I'm there with you unforgiven, I'm 6'2'' and weigh 142 pounds. being military, I allways have to custom buy my uniforms. It takes me 3 weeks to get any type of uniform item, and because I do alot of painting, I'm always replacing my coveralls:mad:

I wear the same size shoe as well, and it takes me 3 months to get a pare of boots, and they cost just under $300.

Aww, sorry hun. Are you talkin bout the hoodie I gave you? Yah, it did look a lil small when I put it on yah, but I didn't think it was that bad :confused:. Now, the t-shirt I gave yah was short as hell, lol, but it's an extra large too and I thought for sure it would fit if it almost goes to the bottom of my thigh. Ahh well, we'll find yah some :p

Yeah, I'm 6'3 and feel your pain. Especially with shoes since I wear a size 14 as well. I always come across five 13 and a halfs before I finally find a 14 and when I do find 14s they're always shoes that I do not want. :happysad:
