    Suit Supply has wool blend rain coats. I own the navy one and it looks really smart over a suit. They are pricey though at around 500 CAD (not sure what that is in USD).

    You will find cheaper options at BR. They carry mac coats in navy and trench coats in beige.

    Is it possible to find shirts OTR that don't come partially untucked when you lift your arms up over your head?

    It depends on your desired brand and fit. Also, it sounds like your height may be more torso based and less leg based which I am as well. You could try a couple of options. The first is that some companies offer Tall versions of their shirts. I know JCrew does and this could help. The downside is that sometimes it throws other proportions of the shirts you like off. The second option would be to size up and go down one or two slimnesses. For instance, I like the Spier & Mackay 15.5" contemporary shirts and while I can wear their slim, it does not leave downside risk of my wife drying one of them leaving them too tight. So I size up to 16" in the neck and down to slim and dry this shirts. This has helped a ton. I could even try extra slim fit if I wanted a slimmer profile.

    The torso thing will be hard to overcome as most shirts are based on a stock sizing template. Movement just untucks them for those with longer torsos.

    That *is* a quality testimonial. I have always wondered, and also balked at the $21 price tag, yet will cycle through $12 dress socks each year...

    No to overstate how much I love their socks, but I only wear Darn Tough now. Ditto for my wife who scoffed at me in Italy while carting around 12 pair of socks, and saw the light after I bought her a pair for hiking/farm work (she volunteers at our local historical society farm, feeding horses, letting animals out, etc.) YMMV but I think it's worth $21 to test the waters. They're also available via Amazon Prime last I looked, so no risk if you get em, and don't like em.

    I'm pretty happy with Macy's house brand Geoffrey Beene for dress shirts (fitted) and Uniqlo for Oxford shirts (slim fit). Both are cheap ($30-40). the Geoffrey Beene shirts are very thin. Both are long enough to stay tucked for me. I'm 5'11" and 185lbs. I usually wear size large for Uniqlo and 16.5 x 35 for Geoffrey Beene.

    SocksAddict.com has them regularly on sale.

    Like Alex.C, Darn Toughs are all I wear now. For business casual use, I prefer the Orvis Extra Invincible version, made by Darn Tough, and sold in a three pack for $50. For casual use, I get their lows or loafer socks. I probably have over 30 pairs now.

    I dig the Bonobos pattern.
    If you want something a little warmer, I got this tweed blazer with patch pockets from a made-to-measure shop in India, it came out nicely, and expertly done. $140, takes about two weeks. I live in DC. Some winters stay below freezing for a week or two, but for most autumn's, I can wear this outside and be fine, to work and on the weekend. Worn over a sweater, it's super warm in the winter, but needs a hat and scarf.

    The J Crew Factory light blue is going to be the least versatile/appropriate in a professional setting (the Bonobos might be as well, although it looks kinda grey in the picture). I like herringbone, but it depends on the rest of your style.

    Personally I'm a fan of both light grey (with navy or dark grey to charcoal pants) and brown but YMMV.
