Tall guy clothes???
I was wondering what you tall thin people wear for tights? I have a solid 34" inseam and I wear a medium sized Pearl Izumi short, so I am sure I am going to have problems finding a Fall/Winter tight (and most other clothes for that matter!).

Has anyone with my body shape found a decent fit??

I wear medium shorts and have a 33" inseam.

Nashbar has tights in tall sizes. Not insulated or windfront or bibs, but they're okay for the price, and have enough stretch to fit over a baselayer. Their mediums are actually a bit long on me. I needed one inch, and these have two.

In both Sugoi and Endura bib tights, their large size fit me best. I can't even get their mediums over my quads. I found them right at my LBS.

There are plenty of bike shops in NYC. Why not shop around and try some on?

I'm going to try to find some in the stores like you said just so I can see where I am. My buddy mentioned nashbar too. I have to admit I feel overwhelmed by this new hobby. Way too many choices to make! Wanna talk about tire tubes!?:lol:

I have a pair of those tights from the link tsl posted. 35" inseam and the mediums fit me perfectly.
