I'm 6'2" and pretty skinny. How do I know if any these clothes sizes slim? If they aren't, where could I find slim size or fitted snow clothes?

Well most that I've seen just say small medium large, but most things are just too Baggy. It's like riding in a giant mascot costume. My size is typically medium I just need it fitted not loose all over.

i remember seeing burton cargo pants in sizes like medium long, so you could find a waist size that fits and is longer. i don't remember where i saw them, you might have to look hard.

other than that, you might just have to go try some things on. they make skinny pants, if you're really skinny, they might fit you better. but the style is having huge clothes, and it makes it easier to board i think, less restriction on your motion.

Yea, most people that boards like to wear baggy so a lot of these companies come out with baggy clothes.
I know Burton comes with 3 different "fits" and one of them is like a "slim fit"
I'm sure other brands got "slim fit" clothes as well.
Try googling it

most brands have slim fit choices but they are very limited.

My recommendation is to go with brands that have longer cuts. You can probably 1 size smaller than normal and the length will fit you.
Airblaster is known for making longer stuff.
Sessions made their cuts longuer the last couple of years.
686 makes jackets with long sleeves.

Or you can look up ski gear, most of their stuff fits snug.

Ya ok.
Burton has slim fit, Airblaster fits a little slimmer, some Nike SB outerwear is slim (Vernon jacket for example), and I've seen some Ride jackets that fit long and slim. Its kinda tough but you really do have to just look around and try stuff on. Read reviews too, they usually give some indication of how the clothing fits.
Thats whats up.

I'm 6'4" and have found that for the most part slim pants of most brands fit well. Of course, I wear my pants pretty low so length isn't too big of an issue.

686 is my new favorite brand for clothing. Just got a new council smarty jacket in XL and it fits amazing and has tons of features.

I agree, 686 is very high quality and isnt baggy at all. sleeves and pants are longer as well so you dont feel like its your elementary school pants.

SergePon: If you're still on the hunt, you may want to look at the Vans pants & jackets w/ the Lydon Fit (LF). Last month, I ordered the Etienne pants thru TruSnow but I returned them since I needed a bit more room in the butt & thighs. For more info on them, take a look at my comments I added to one of the reviews.
 
Good luck in your search.Thumbs Up

Maybe it is only certain companies but I feel like some have different styles. These are listed with the size of the item.  I might be thinking of special blend but i can't remember off the top of my head now.  Maybe burton does it too?

Some people have mentioned different brands with slim fits, but I could understand how that wouldn't always work for you. Just because something isn't as big around doesn't mean that it's also long enough.

Burton does a have a 'Tall' fit for their cargos. It's only available in their standard cargo pant, but I'm 6' 2" myself, waist around 34" and the size M Tall fits me well in the length, but there isn't much room to spare in the waist. If your waist is in the 32-34 range, I'd take a look at those.

Special Blend makes some slim fit jackets, but you have to be wary from year to year. I bought one last year in a Large, but I had to return it for warranty when the powder skirt started to tear apart. They gave me this year's version and I could barely zip it up, so I had to send it back for the XL. The 'slim' definitely got slimmer this year. I'm about 200#, so it may not be a problem for you, but it's something to consider.

if its a slim or thight fit. the discreption or specs most of the time will say so. but isnt that annoying to move in. i love my baggy pants and jacket. i have no constriction in movement and it looks sick, so why is everyone latly going to slim and skinny and tight stuff

I don't mind it being loose. It's comfortable, I understand. But because im so skinny it's too loose. Its like wearing an oversized costume.

Some of the pants on this site will say slim fit, but you may have to read in the description, not just in the title.

you might have to check the manufacturer's sites. i think certain brands sell different styles. i think quicksilver had a fitted series of clothing as well as burton. i could be wrong on those brands, though. i searched through a ton of clothes months ago so my memory's a bit hazy.
