.......where the hell do you buy your clothes from???

My OH desperately needs some new clothes (my opinion, not his) and I cant just walk into Tesco/Asda/High St Stores, simply due to his size. I have spent the last hour and half trawling the net for low priced T-shirts, polo shirts, rugby shirts, hoodies and jeans for him but to no avail :O(

He is 6ft 5" with a 50" chest. His inside leg is only 34", therefore its his body length that is the problem when buying tops. Any of you tall uns give me some ideas ???

the problem is when I buy the xxxl sizes they arent long enough and far too wide, making him look pregnant!

Theres a place in town near spar, expensive, my uncle used to go there.

We have a shop in Glasgow called High and Mighty, they also have a website.

But there expensive.

I dont mind paying out for special occasion clothing , but t-shirts to go shoppping in for £60 a piece is a bit too much!

I am only 6'2, 56 chest, I have found www,jacamo.co.uk to be an absolute life saver, decent stuff inc ben sherman at normal to 6XL sizes
have gotten deals such as 3 tee's for £25

I don't have this problem.......tbh......I normally have to get mine tailored so it doesn't trip me up. :oops: :lol:

Jacamo have big sizes, Big Fish, and Big Ozzie have a good selection and are not badly priced, and sizewell. i have used all these in the past, but lately find Jacamo a bit more upto date

I did look there as Martin Johnson heads up their Big and Tall section and he is similar shape and size to my OH, Im afraid not much choice and a bit fuddy duddy, Im trying to get him away from that style of straight leg, stone washed jeans :oops: (I am slowly winning)

im 6"4 (almost 6"5 :lol:) and a 42 inch chest with a 34 inch inside leg too, legth doesnt bother me on clothes cos i wear my jeans round my ass :lol: but in general i think M&S clothes are a bit longer than most, and try tkmaxx maybe
