Tall (really) Nike Sweat Pants - Hopeful, Stay Tuned

So, I decided to give it a try and test the waters again, this time with Nike. As a 6ft 4 relatively slim male, one of my biggest frustrations has been finding tall sweatpants. I found one pair from Land's End years ago, but don't see them any longer. They were more traditional sweatpants, and there are other Sites with taller traditional sweatpants, not made from some of the high-quality fabrics that are out there for the rest of the population. 

Stock online, why the heck not
They don't need to stock these tall (really) sizes in stores, I get that, takes up valuable shelf space for the masses of shorter people, but online, ONLINE, why the heck not? Its tradition and it sucks for us. I will not be deterred.

34-inch inseam is not tall for us
This morning I found some really nice training pants on the Nike Site and saw that they even had what they called "Tall" training pants. Now for anyone 6 ft 4 or taller, we appreciate that for most people 6ft even is considered tall and for those 6ft or a just a bit taller, a 34-inch inseam is likely just fine, but when you hit 6 ft 4, a 34-inch inseam looks like you are preparing for a flood. So for us, a 34-inch inseam is NOT tall.  

Left out of high-quality fabrics
Nike and UA have some great stuff, great and great looking fabrics. Tall folks can buy high-quality, high-tech, fashionable, great feeling, great looking shirts, and tops, but that is it, sadly, no pants. Why can't we get some good quality, high-tech material like everyone else? I will not be deterred.
