When can I find nice quality, fitted, longer length tops/t.shirts from in a range of colours from?
I hate it when tops ride up/feel too short when I'm wearing jeans. I'm quite tall/long in the body rather than long legs LOL

I always recommend americanapparel , these ones are very flattering and lovely and long. I have loads of them and they wash and last really well. Crap photo

Next's tall range. They are constantly selling out though so you need good timing.

DEfinetly H&M. Available in a range of colours and they wash well too. I am 5'11" and they are past my hips.

oh I am so glad you are pleased smile You always worry when you recommend something it may not be liked. I think I have one in every colour too.

I buy mine from H & M too but I like the Mama maternity ones - they're extra long as they would stretch over a bump, and very good quality material too.

fergoose Sat 17-Nov-12 20:57:41

Oh i hope you do like it! - her delivery is very speedy too.

takeonboard Sat 17-Nov-12 20:45:46

thanks Fergoose - I just bought one of the tops from ebay and if i like it will get some more smile

Brilliant - I'm just under 5'11 and need long tops!

fergoose Sat 17-Nov-12 19:32:11

the sizes of the tops are pretty accurate, certainly not stingy - they have plenty of stretch. I'm 5ft 8 and they are plenty long on me with good arm lengths too. The thumb holes I just ignore or fold over. I have nearly one in each colour, and have just replaced a couple that got bleach on them. They wash and dry really well too, and aren't too thin at all.

Oops... blush
Meant to say - that eBay seller looks great! Thank you!
Also watching this thread with interest..

I like baukjen extra long too - good quality and wash well, in fact I'm wearing one now! But they are expensive and like Carrie I only buy in sale or with discount.

Ferngoose that seller l

brighthair Sat 17-Nov-12 18:56:43

That eBay shop looks fab! How do the sizes come up?

alemci Sat 17-Nov-12 14:17:53

thanks Ferngoose, had a look on his page. What would I do without your ebay knowledge.

carrie74 Sat 17-Nov-12 14:03:11

Baukjen extra long tee. I've now got 3 and wear them pretty much constantly as base layers. Pricey, but perfect (and I try to buy in sale or use a code: I haven't paid full price).

The best fitting T-shirt I have ever had is a Roxy T-shirt which I got at TKMaxx. Long enough, stays pulled down, nice long sleeves with a proper long cuff, and I have had it for years and it still looks as good as new. In fact, I'm wearing it right now! I don't know if Roxy T-shirts are always this good or if I was just lucky.

MrsKitty Sat 17-Nov-12 11:23:16

Sainsburys long sleeved t-shirts fit well and are a good length.

I always trot this ebay seller out - I have bought several, and they wash and wear well. Plenty long enough too. I live in them during the winter.

NuzzleandScratch Sat 17-Nov-12 11:04:04

Uniqlo! Lovely quality, wash well, plenty of colours, and reasonable too!

HazeltheMcWitch Sat 17-Nov-12 11:02:55

I find good (long) 'basic' tshirts in TopShop's TALL range, although they really only have them over the summer. So I stock up! They often have vest tops all year round. Last ok too.

Also I find that Sainsbury's ones usually come up quite long, although you'd need to check each one as they really vary.

H&M I find can be long, but are usually crap!

For something a bit/lot nicer, agree with Vero Moda and Splendid.
