Tall size cycling clothes?

I'm 6' 4", which makes it very hard to find cycling clothing that fits, particularly when it comes to pants, long-sleeve jerseys, and jackets. So far the only place I've found that sells any of those items in tall sizes is Aerotech Designs. I've been pretty happy with their shorts and short-sleeve jerseys, but overall their selection of tall sizes is fairly sparse. Do you know of any other places where I can get tall sizes?

I'm your height and know the problem well, though I have a pretty good supply of cycling clothing and decided a couple of years ago not to buy anything I don't NEED--no more spending $80 on a jersey just because I like the color.
Back when I was in the market, both Nashbar and Performance (separate companies then) sometimes carried tall sizes up to XL or XXL. I haven't shopped with either in three or four years, and they're effectively the same company now. Worth checking, though. www.bikenashbar.com and www.performancebike.com.
If you don't need really specific bike-specific stuff, REI also has tall sizes in a lot of stuff that's suitable for cycling, though it's not sold as cycle clothing. I don't wear jerseys anyway, so I don't care, but it's important to some people.

If you are slim aswell- Look at the Italian manufacturers. Don't know what Italian cyclist are like but a medium l/s jersey that I normally wear but in an Italian manufacture was very tight round the body and the sleeves were far too long. So were all the other mediums

Hey, thanks for the Nashbar reference. I got a great deal on a tall cycling jacket just a couple minutes ago, plus I found a coupon code on another web site to get another 10% off.
