Pants/Bibs for Tall & Skinny

Is there a brand of ski pants/bibs that have longer inseams in the smaller waist sizes?

My son has a size 30 waist (small) and a 34/35 inseam. All the pants/bibs I've found online and in local stores have 30-31 inseams for Small/Medium waist sizes, and 32 inseam for Large. He wears his current bibs as low as possible but they're too short.

You can try Rab. They make long sizes (34 inch inseam). Not sure they make a long in a 30 waist but.. wroth a shot.

I am the opposite and have found that Patagonia Pants are always too long and skinny for me.

They may not be known for their outdoor clothing, but you might try Lands' End. They make outdoor clothes and they make a lot of Tall stuff.

What's up with Flylow? I wanted to get some of their pants, but a 31" inseam on a 34" waist? Are those guys chubby munchkins?

US companies continue to shorten inseams...had a pair of TREW bibs that I loved, but they delaminated so they sent me a new pair. I was stoked, till I learned they changed the model from tall and skinny to short and fat. Patagonia doesn't go longer than 34"

Your best bet is the Swedes, they are tall and skinny as a country so anything from Sweet or Helly Hansen will have the 34-36 inseams with slim waists.
