I asked pretty much the same question a short while ago on this forum. One of the guys recommended Performance, Inc.. I'm 6'6" 245 lbs. I ordered a Performance XXL jersey from their website, and am happy with it. Good luck.

Sugoi jerseys are always way too long on me. That's why I don't buy them.

Nm I was going to suggest a dh jersey. They would fit, but they are baggy.

Do you need longer torso or longer sleeve?

I'm 6'4", but my torso length is pretty normal (it's all in the legs). However, I've got long arms. As far as long sleeve goes, Peal Izumi (a L) fits great. I'm also slim, and I've found that the Bergamo and Santini jerseys (in an XL) fit very nicely.

But if you're looking at torso length, you're probably better off with the "American" rather than euro-jerseys.
