Tweed jackets for men, does anywhere do longer sleeves?
My husbands jackets are all from m&s or house of fraser. I don't think the house of fraser ones were sold as long but they are definitely much longer than elsewhere. He's 6f6" and he is big but definitely not as big as they assume he should be at most places. If that makes sense?
Thanks. Yes DH is 6ft 6 as well, and 32 inch waist and probably about 36 chest? He's a complete beanpole, arms even longer than height... Boden long stuff is way too short. The only things he's ever had that have fitted have all been made for him - even the M&S 2 inches longer things are a bit short in the sleeves. Might just give in and go to a tailor...
Don't know about ordering online, but if you can get to a shop, a tailor will pin the jacket to fit, they alter it for free and post it to you once completed. Absolutely excellent service and reasonable prices. They even have a choice of tweed jackets. My DH loves his, and has subsequently bought a suit from Slaters as well. Great for non normal sized men.
