    Been meaning to start a thread for tall guys clothes here and I realized what I really wanted to know about was where you all buy long sleeve shirts.

    I did search and did not find any real useful or long running threads so here we are.

    A list of vendors that sell tall sized shirts would be very helpful. I'm typically an XLT but in Gustin am a XXLT.

    I have been buying a lot of JCREW but looking to branch out, hence Stylefourm which led me to Gustin.

    Suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I presume you mean casual shirts like flannels, henleys, etc. I mainly stick to J. Crew and Eddie Bauer.

    Yes casual shirts. I wear a lot of oxfords but would like to have some more shirts with a proper collar.

    I'm mostly going to pair with jeans and khakis.

    I don't like how cheap GAP is. Ditto on JCREW FACTORY and I have not bought BRepublic for years as I was turned off by their quality as well.

    6'4"

    But with broad shoulders so that's what normally takes up the sleeve length.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Got it. I'm about the same size with really broad shoulders and have never had to buy tall shirts....but I don't have any BR or JCrew. Save Khaki from Unionmade makes some really nice casual shirts that you can catch on sale for a decent price. Sleeve and body length works good for me.

    I'm currently looking for a spring jacket that is a little more dressy.

    I loved the idea of the Taylor Stitch Wayfaring Jacket but those are way too short in the arms.
