Casual shirts for tall men

My DH is 6'4 but most of that is his top half. He can mostly get away with regular length trousers.

His work shirts come mostly from TM Lewin etc and are nice and long and tuck in fine.

On Fridays his office dress downs but most guys still wear a shirt rather than T-shirt or polo shirt. We are having trouble finding casual shirts that are long enough to look ok with jeans. They all seem to stop at his waist which looks a bit Jeremy Clarkson grin.

Any idea where to shop for longer length, long sleeved shirts in nice patterns or prints ? We are in London so have access to lots of shops but I don't know where to start.

Dh is an inch taller with weirdly normal legs too. M&s does a longer length range, but I think they may be a bit more formal. Dh recently got casual shirts in debenhams, I think they were Maine New England, and some from Mountain Warehouse online, although just in plain colours.

Sorry, I misread your message, the mountain warehouse ones were polos, but shirts from debenhams.

Thanks. Yes plain and more formal shirts are not a problem.

Perhaps I should get him high waisted jeans instead to balance him out lol

I second m and s, my dh is really tall and they do shirts for tall and broad men, also long bodied with strangely short legs for a tall man! 😀

Dh is a bit taller than that, and gets many of his from Charles tyrwitt (spelling?) they do long length, custom size type ones. He also has some luck with crew clothing, white stuff etc.

Dh's proportions are not so odd, but to find standard shirts to fit would be life changing. He had some made in Singapore once, and now takes the oldest as a pattern and chooses fabrics anywhere tailoring is cheap.
