Men with long arms - where do you buy your jackets from?

OH is 6'3" and is really struggling to find a casual jacket which covers his wrists - where can I get him something decent and not too expensive?

He's not overly fussy but it must have inside pocketes.

Cheers xx

But neither of them are wearing jackets, so they obviously can't find any with lone enough arms either!

Next & M&S usually do a longer length sleeve in shirts so probably do in jackets as well!?! Worth a look.

M&S do suits with a longer sleeve, but not casual jackets. Next don't do any of their jackets with a longer sleeve either, cos he gets his shirts there and so we though it'd be the best place to start for a jacket.

How about trying a US website? They always seem to cater for the taller men but don't know any specific sites, perhaps ebay US might give you an idea.

Thanks, I'll have a look on ebay.us now.

Hmmmm, problem is, for some reason long arms seems to equal big belly lol. He's tall and skinny. I thin kwe'll have to go to a tailor!

I have the same problem, although i wouldn't describe myself as skinny lol, i'm 6ft5 and really struggle with things with long sleeves, M&S seem to be the best, but as you say you've tried there i suppose that's no help!! Fat Face are usually quite generous with sizes, they do casual jackets i think.

Do you have a High & Mighty near you?

They do sizes that are for tall men aswell as large men.

For example ( there are loads of casual jackets on their site) this is £29.99 and is available in both "kingsize" or "tall" sizes, though some are just the larger sizes.

It's not just men that have this problem! At least men can get trousers in quite precise leg lengths. Women are lucky if there is a tall department. And Wallis only do long in their tailored trousers not their casual ones. Don't tall women wear casual then?
I have long arms and broard shoulders so I tend to have to buy a size bigger jacket to get it to hang off my shoulders a little to make the sleeves long enough. Thank goodness for 3/4 length sleeves

Loveabargain I have noticed that New Look are starting to introduce clothing for tall women, and I think they're mostly casual.

Den I don't think we have a High & Mighty nearby, but I'll show him the website when he comes home. Fatface looks good too, though I'll not hear the end of it when I ask him to look at a website called fat face lol.
