im looking around for some stuff to wear over the fast approaching long welsh winter ahead but im coming up short on legwear, literally i cant find any wet weather trouser type thing with an inside leg over 34in and tbh thats a 3/4 short with my almost 40in inside leg measurement!

dont really want to end up riding around with my long white chicken legs in shorts in winter Laughing

Have you looked at non bike related retailers?

Might be worth a check.. Probably a lot cheaper than bike specific stuff too..

ive looked all over the place and not found anything yet,i used to use a special catalog for tall freaks but they dont have anything suitable

its annoying as i would be fine if i was 5ft 5 and had a waist of 50+ inches as they are catered for just fine but is that really more common for outdoors/activity wear than people over 6.5? Laughing

Just sow the legs of two 'regular' sized trousers together!
