Been lurking the forums for a bit, so I guess it's time to ask my first real question. So I have a relatively tall/slim build (6'3", ~155lbs), and it's pretty hard to find clothing that can actually fit. I can't find anyone other than levi's/gap/BR that cary my size pants (31x34), and am stuck in that grey area where most size M shirts are a tad small in the sleeves while the few places I can find that carry "Medium Tall" are only good for Polos/Henleys (the BDs are too long in the sleeves and baggier than a standard Medium for some reason). So where can I find good and inexpensive (i'm a grad student making <$20k a year..so BR/JCrew is my "high" end) clothing? For reference: After visiting an outlet over x-mas I found that J.Crew and nautica "Vintage Wash" BDs in M fit me rather well (a little loose, but good in the sleeves) and that IZOD seems to have longer than average sleeve/back lengths (their ss polo fits me rather well in small). I've already accepted that I'll have to hit the internet sites for pants in my size, but I'd hope to find some brick & mortar places where I can at least try on some styles and then special order the size. Any ideas?
