I'm the same height as you OP, and I've found Uniqlo tops to be too short. I have found long ones this year at White Company, but colours are limited (I've got navy and white), and found some good ones in Banana Republic in the past (not looked this year though, as I don't have one near me). Bought a couple in Next last year which were long enough, but didn't keep their shape - tended to go baggy too quickly.
Fat Face do long t-shirts, though you need to try them on as I found that this year's stripy ones here looked a bit frumpy on (but maybe that's just me!). Gap used to be long enough, but the quality of their cotton has become so poor in the past few years, that I don't bother going there any more. I bought some fabulous long vests in Mint Velvet about five years ago, lovely and long, thick cotton, keep their shape beautifully - but now their stuff is all floaty and see-through....
I agree it's a problem. I just want a few tops which don't display my midriff if I lift my arms above my head, How hard can it be?
