I have great difficulty in purchasing a coat/jacket that fits as I'd like them (those I've met will understand I'm sure)

 

I want to buy a new dark leather jacket (not taytee) and was wondering if anybody knew of an online store which accomodates those over 6'6"?

 

I ordered one last week, it came, and the sleeves were 4" shy of my wrist man!!

 

And don't say try shopping the high street. Nothing could be worse than the coat hangers down there let me tell ya buddy!!    :aww:

tho im a mere 6ft1 . i have unfeesibly long arms and so need xls when a large would do, with larges the sleeves are way up my for arms.

 

they say your armspan from finger tip to finger tip matches your height, not in my case its 4 inches longer.

I know none of this helps you, but its the first chance ive had to post the most interesting thing about me.

No worries, Lanky. I'm all too familiar with this dilemma...

 

M&S have a tall man's store online. Worth checking out.

EDIT: http://www.marksandspencer.com/Big-Tall-Mens/b/43476030?ie=UTF8&intid=gnav_men_big-tall

 

Slaters Menswear are great, not sure if there's a branch in Newcastle, but there's branches in Edinburgh and Leeds if that's of any use?

EDIT: Yes there's a branch in Newcastle! Look here: http://www.slaters.co.uk/en/help/storelocator/details/?storeid=181&storename=Newcastle&regionName=North&menonly=&language=en-GB

 

Look at Jacamo online as well. EDIT: Go take a look at http://www.jacamo.co.uk/shop/home

 

Also, check out Not Much Fits for more advice etc. EDIT: Go to http://notmuchfits.co.uk/

 

EDIT: I've added in some URLs for your Lankster, happy shopping and good luck. :thup:

CP40 has monkey arms.

 

Why do you have tp buy it online LBW?

 

 

 

 

 

Because I am sick of going into regular stores, and trying on potential body warmers!! The High Street does not accomodate for the lanky, the monkey arm, or the amputated arm!  :pow:

 

And thanks for the links guys, especially GM, as he is the nearest to my dilema, and seems to have an abundance of linkage!!  When I get my first jacket that covers my watch, there'll be pixtures for the gang!!    O0

 

Off t' voting chamber now............... Oooooooooh really nervous and that me like!!

Anyone else notice the irony that LBW's too big for many jackets, and this thread's too big for the screen?

 

Also I knew you were tall mate, but not 6'6" plus!

 

An inch or two give or take, and why HAS this shit happened!! :tickedoff:
