Try dunelm mills. They have loads in towelling material in all colours.

My husband is 6'3 with long arms - wears a 'tall' in most clothes, I bought him this last year and it is lovely, plenty of room in the sleeve length which he was shocked about as that doesn't happen.

Forgot to say that the quality is really lovely - much nicer than my White Co one. Really thick cotton velour and nicely finished.

A few years ago now but my partners came from lands end, I think we bought from the American site to get the length.

lavendersun what's the sizing like? DH also 6ft3, usually XL or XXL, can't decide which to order...

Will go and measure it a welcome break from my books. My husband usually wears a large tall - broad shoulders, 44" chest (I think), 34" waist. Will measure chest and length from centre back to bottom and return ....

the Dunelm ones - it doesn't give a length but the first review complains it was too long & had to be shortened! grin

Ok, checked a jacket and it is a 44L so 44" chest.

Robe here is an XL. 52" long down centre back from where hood joins to bottom of hem. 28 1/2" wide - measured across the back from where the sleeves join, at the bottom of the hole. Would be armpit on a fitted garment.

The one I bought wasn't reduced and I think it would be more than worth full price.

I bought DH a white company one a couple of years ago and it comes down to his ankles.

Ok so not the cheapest by a long shot but Woods of Shropshire have really good dressing gowns.

John Lewis had some lovely ones last year.
