I am 6'6", 210 pounds. I recently purchased a MTM Samuelson suit at the advice of several forum members. I am very pleased with the fit and the apparent quality of the suit.

Personally I'd have not chosen thin lapels if I were such a thin guy. Cuffs are about 1/2'' too long, but it's hard to tell without a proper dress shirt on (see a trend here).
