So the problem I'm having, and have always had, with outerwear is that I'm a bit taller than the apparent models they use when pattern-making. Specifically, I'm 6'4" tall with a torso that can sometimes fit a size large jacket, and arms that are always longer than most size XL offerings. Very specifically, my dress shirt size is a 36-37" sleeve.
Right now my WPB shell is an REI Taku that weighs (I just discovered) as much as a cast iron boat anchor, but I ended up with it because it was the only offering I could find that was A) not some cheesy DWR that won't stand up to a Texas sized downpour, and B) was for a time offered in a "tall" version. The Taku size XLT is now my go-to shell that I love and will 90% continue to use on days of protracted rain since it's just so well made/tailored. Moreover, I just ordered an Eddie Bauer MicroTherm Down Shirt in XLT which fits great and that, as soon as I bend my arms, doesn't expose my wrists like the ankles of so many 19th century old west whores.
However, for the life of me I can't find any windshirts or even sub-12oz WPB jackets that offer a 36" sleeve. Does anyone have any advice on this? Patagonia seems to assume anyone size XL will have the torso of a gigantic Rubix cube so all of their stuff is out of the question with their big billowy torsos. How is Mont Bell sizing?
Seriously, between my long arms and 34" inseam it's d@mn near impossible to clothe myself!
P.S. Thumb loops on too-short sleeves are incredibly annoying but I so wish I could find something with them.
