Help me find long things

I'm hoping to get some shopping tips from those in the know.

I live in London, and have very long arms and legs. I'm 6'8, with around a 37" inside leg and I wear a 38" shirt sleeve. Chest is 42-44".

You can imagine how awful clothes shopping is. I can never buy anything with full length sleeves or legs online (aside from TM Lewin shirts and Tyrwhitt trousers) and old fashioned bricks-and-mortar shopping usually leaves me feeling dejected.

I'd appreciate any advice at all on good place to find clothes, so please don't hold back. But while I can just about manage the limited choice in most items, the real thorn in my side is anything jacket-like.

This is where I really need help. I love the look but don't own a single one. :mad: I'm talking the casual suit/blazer styles that you'd wear with jeans or chinos or cords. I can get an actual suit MTM of course, but just try finding the more casual stuff off the peg. Why Tyrwhitt and Lewin make long shirts but not jackets baffles me.

I'd love some cool jackets, especially (but not only) tweed, but they just don't seem to exist. Even then biggest sizes (which would hang off me like a tent) don't go long enough.

Anyone can point me towards a place where I can get this kind of thing to fit me will have a friend for life.

I understand true off the peg will be a tall order, so even someone who will do a selection of MTM that doesn't charge hundreds of pounds per item will be a big help to me. :worship:

Thanks in advance,

Any place that can do a made to measure suit should be able to do made to measure khakis and casual jackets. If budget is an issue, try Kent Wang or MyTailor.
