I am 5'11" with a 36 inch inside leg....the only places I know to get long enough trousers out there are Long Tall Sally, Zara and Dorothy Perkins...all the other long ranges (i.e. Next, M and S) are too short....anyone have any other hints - it gets a bit boring doing all your trouser shopping in three stores!!!

I'm the same - although don't think my legs are nearly as long as yours (I have a long body, which means I find tops hard to buy). Hennes might be longish. Top Shop do longer lengths?

Gap "long" fitting is longer than most.

My legs are 34/35" and H&M trousers fit me.

I get all mine from Next - I'm 5'11

Mango and French Connection are good. I'm about 5'9/10 and I sometimes need to get Mango trousers taken up.

Don't M&S do an extra-long length now or did I dream that?

Next do an extra long that's very very long

This is probably a far fetched suggestion - but if you ever get a chance go shopping in Holland. The Dutch are, on average, taller than Brits & therefore their clothes are longer too!!!! My sister is 6ft1" and my brother 6ft4" and they go about once a year to stock up.
