Sweatpants for TALL men

Does anyone have ANY CLUE where I can find sweats for my tall, thin husband? He's about 6'1 and needs a 34" inseam. Most sweats come up to his shins and look ridiculous. He currently has only two pairs that he can wear, and we have to take them out of the washer and PULL on them to make them long enough and hang them to dry. I've looked all over- Abercrombie, Aeropostale, Hollister, AE, Macy's, Saks, Neiman, Nordstrom, Eddie Bauer, LLBean.... feeling frustrated! The two he has came from a local store that does not have any more.

Help?

Juicy/Dirty English is a bit harder to come by since I think they discontinued their mens stuff.

D is 6'4" and I have the same problem finding pants for him (he needs a 34" inseam too and is usually a Medium in things like sweats), but I find that if you go up a size in most pants, the inseams gives you an inch or so more. For example, these American Apparel ones (California Fleece Track Pant | Pants | Shop American Apparel) size Large have a 33.5" inseam which would do him fine... they also have a drawstring so he can tighten if they are too loose in the waist. That's my tip... look for a larger size with a drawstring/adjustable waist.

eta: to check the inseam on AA stuff, click the "Specs" link under the colour dropdown. that gives you the actual specs of the item as opposed to the general sizing chart.

sorry for the double post but these are longer:
Flex Fleece Sweatpant | Pants | Shop American Apparel
they have the elastic at the ankles though which personally annoy me but
the medium is 33 3/4" inseam and large is 34 1/8"... with drawstring. you don't want sweats to be fitted anyways though right? i always like the look of them larger and more comfy ;p

My husband is 6'5" and wears Reebok sweats, and they are the right length. (They could handle being a bit longer but they are fine. He normally wears a 36" inseam.) He wears the XL and a 36/38" waist so you'd just want to make sure the inseams of smaller sizes aren't shorter.

I still think it's crazy to hear you say "my husband"!

True, I get mine there too. Even though they are crappy, they do fit nicely!

I have a pair of Juicy sweatpants, and the inseams were probably around 34" (I had to hem them)

Super comfy though
