I thought I would start a (hopefully) ever-ongoing thread where tall and thin guys can share good finds that overcome the specific difficulties we face as orangutan-armed, slim/athletic bodied fellows. What's prompted me to start this is: I'm trying to buy a simple lightweight wool v-neck, but of course Mediums fit around the chest but leave several inches off my appropriate sleeve length. A place like J Crew has the "Tall" sweater option, which is great when they have Mediums in stock. But this is only ONE place I've found. This is one example of a problem that I face all the time, and I know you do too.
Another example: I would LOVE to find a nice Tweed sport coat, but I feel I can't buy online unless it's Made to Measure, because of the proportion issues we all deal with. Does anyone have a good resource for jackets, tweed or otherwise?? This thread is meant to be a source for all finds and tips for the tall and thin gentleman.
Unleash your knowledge gents!
