    I did a cursory search of the forum as well as google and didn't turn up much useful information on this...

    I am 210lbs 6'5" and have an exceptionally long torso. I currently purchase 'tall' size shirts and they can barely be tucked in. Of the ones that I can wear untucked, they come right to my beltline and I'm worried that if I wear these while carrying (my CHL should arrive in a couple of months) that my weapon will show.

    Are there any clothiers that you guys know of that have offerings for the longitudinally inclined?

    Thanks in advance as any help would be most welcome...

    I have this problem too. The perfect clothes I have found are from Nautica. They mainly have tall shirts and the tall are longer than normal tall tees I have come across. My friends and family realized that if I have a nautica shirt on I am carry and if I don't I am not.

    I'm a shade under 6'6 so I can relate. It isn't easy finding clothes. Especially in the summer. A pocket gun can be really useful b/c you can put it in cargo pants.

    When I am not at work, usually I just go with an XXL tee shirt and wear it untucked. Sorry I am not much help, but I haven't found the perfect solution yet. ​

    I am 6'4" 260

    I have found clothes at JCPenneys at their big and tall section. Dillards has a section too. Some brands are better than others that fit so you'll have to look.

    I have not ordered from this site but I have heard some positives.

    Same problem here 6'5'' 270 with a long torso.
    I find that the holster really makes the diffrence. I tend to get holsters that ride very high with a good belt like a wilderness tactical instructor belt. I usually wear either a 5 inch 1911 or the springfield XD tactical which is the same overall length.
    Usually a T-shirt and a loose fitting button up shirt from the big and tall section. My problem is I dont really need anthing bigger than 1XL-2xL but I do need the extra length.

    Similar with me, but i am 6-2 and 290lb's - tall shirts are hard to find and my shoulders are so big, a 3x doesn't fit well at times.

    When I find something that fits nice, i never put it in the dryer - so it never shrinks.

    Check out kingsize.com they should have t's long enough and jackets ect. I have the same problem 6'6" and 325lbs , long torso and even longer arms and I dont have any problems finding clothes, they are a little more expensive but have a great selection.
