    Hi Fellow Styleforumers,

    I am looking at purchasing several new suits and sportcoats. I have three of Benjamin Clothing suits from eHaberdasher and I love them. But I am looking for more of a variety than solid blue, solid black, solid medium grey. But being 6'1" i can't find anything that is long enough. I've looked at Cesare Attolini, Sartoria Partenopea, Rafaelle Caruso, canali, Corneliani etc. but it's been hard to find a large selection in my size and under $1,000 per garment. Ive also looked at VirtualClothesHorse, ShoptheFinest.com, Howard Yount, Sartoriale.com, etc. but nothing in longs and under $1,000. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    You may not need a long, depending on how you like your jackets to fit and which cut from which maker you're considering. I'm a touch over 6'1 and I can wear a regular in Attolini, for instance. Look at the measurements given on the jackets and how they compare to what you've got.

    Try these guys. They carry several high end labels. They have some Belvest left, which
    I would rank with Partonopea. I have both. Also look for Battistoni, of comparable quality.
    They cut a longish coat.
