Tall Lifters Unite!

Hai guize,
 
There's a thread like this on BB.com but it's not really relevant to us Brits. I'm 6'4" and sometimes struggle to find decent clothes that fit well since I've put on mass from lifting.
 
I find Extra Long (XL) jeans from Next Online are good but only straight fit, the other cuts that I've tried are way too tight. I can get away with a 34"XL.
 
T-Shirts are becoming a pain because I don't want to wear a baggy t-shirt but I don't want something that's too short on the back.
 
Any other tall guys out there share my problems? Where do you shop?
 
Manlets, GTFO.
 
Peace.

    6'3 and jeans are becoming a problem, esp in the upper thighs, plus..theirs seems to be smaller crotch space in each pair I get..swear to god some pairs i have tried on have grotted my balls!
     
    Same with tshirts..getting ones that sit well on me.trying them either the torso is too short, or the shoulders are to small tight..sleeves to tight..then the next size is basically a bin bag.

    Word. I find All-Saints t-shirts fit quite well, they're fairly slim fitted and long enough but you're looking at £40 a pop unless they're on sale.
     
    Try Next jeans mate, straight leg ones have a lot of crotch and thigh space (although still a little tight on the legs). I tried putting on a pair of jeans I wore before I started lifting and couldn't even get them past my thighs and they were the same size as my straight leg ones, just a different cut (twisted or carrot or something).

    I guess I should be in here at 6' 7", don't have problems with size as I'm not big built but jeans are a nightmare with a 38" inside leg.
     
    I have a lot of Diesel tops which seem to fit me well.

    Im above 6'3". I don't have much problem with any clothes to be honest.

    I find jeans tight round the thighs a major problem, but is that a surprise considering designer jeans are aimed at the general population?
     
    I wouldnt say I am massive, 6"2 and 103kg, but compared to joe bloggs at 70-80 kg theres a big difference.

    6'2" and 101kg
    Jeans are a pain in the ass, but I know what fits so I'll stick to them.  Boss Orange, comfort fit.
     
    Edit - also t-shirts are always too short and in XXL they just look square lol.

    I'm 6:3 and have a few issues with clothes. Seem to have put some size on my chest recently so my current shirts all pinch but when I try on the next size up they don't quite fit right!
