If you're thin and tall, these work great. I'm a 33 waist and a 34 inseam, so the medium size fits me perfectly. Slim, but not too tight, unlike the Burton medium pants which I couldn't even get on. You have to have stick legs for those. The waist has an internal elastic adjustment band which is great for dialing in the perfect fit. So many medium pants are too short on me, but these are perfect! By the way, you can't completely tell by looking at the pictures at distance, but these are corduroy.
