Default Big and "Tall"

It always bugs me when I see a t shirt I like(because I'm picky) and they don't offer it in a tall size.

I stand 6'2, 300lbs. So I feel like im on the edge of regular shirts being too short, Also my belly has grown a bit and it makes the shirts cover less down below because of that.

Anyone have suggestion's on where to find T-Shirts that are not only XL but "Tall Size" as well? (Usually 2 inchs longer then standard tees).

I hate when stores list size's of items, e.i: Size chart says Big&Tall is "x" inch's longer then regular, but they never even mention the length to begin with, just all the other measurements nobody cares about.

I've done jcpennys for a while and they offer decent tall items, but I need more selection. I should also mention I like dark colors, black mostly.

If anyone would like to share their experiences shopping for big and tall related items, please do!

Have you tried online shopping? I have the opposite problem..plus sized and super short (and can't hem my clothes to save my life). I find there are more details about lengths and sizes online and so it's easier for me to shop there. Also, other department stores may have tall sections as well.

Yes, I have this problem too. I'm 6'4" and 295 lbs. Pants are not much of a problem since I don't have particularly long legs (44 X 32 jeans and khakis are pretty easy to find). 3X or 4X tall shirts are indeed much harder to find. One place that does have these is Burlington Coat Factory (yesterday I got a nice short sleeve button-up cotton shirt in size 3X tall for $16.99).

If you got bucks the upscale department store Dillard's has a good big and tall section with a good selection of items that are both big and tall. They have frequent sales and when their merchandise is marked down 70% it's almost affordable.

I know JcPenny has tall, regular, and short sized Jeans so they may have tall sized shirts as well? I have the opposite problem, I'm short so shirts tend to be tooo long for me!
