    24.5! Not 34! Oops.

    I'm 6 ft tall but very very slim. My chest is a size 36 but my sleeves are 24.5 inches. Where the hell am I going to find a wool coat that fits me? Usually Smalls are size 36 chests but they're all 23 inches on the sleeves. Mediums with their 38 chests look baggy on me. J Crew seems to be the only place that has S-tall with 34 inch sleeves but of course they're out of stock this time of the year... Help me please!

    Get a medium sized coat. They're not supposed to be form fitting.

    Better yet go bespoke or, lacking sufficient funds, go made to measure. They will make you sleeves as long or as short as you wish.

    I replied out of hand rather than taking my time. Sorry for being flippant. That said, your sleeves are 34 inches? I am confused. Where are you measuring from and to? Because that is a very long sleeve indeed.
    Suit supply makes a nice wool overcoat in almost any length and at a similar price point.

    Bugger me that's a nice selection. Beauts. I might have to get something from there. Thanks!

    Also I just noticed that I messed up my sleeve length. I meant 24.5! Hit a 3 instead of a 2...
