Button down shirts for tall skinny guys

I'm a tall skinny guy and have issues finding shirts.

The Old Navy/GAP/BR "Tall & Slim" shirts fit me like a glove, but recently their stock has been lacking.

If I buy any other shirts (that I know of), the arms are just too short - by about 1-2 inches.

I'm wondering if any other tall & skinny guys out there can recommend a great retailer which sells shirts for our kind?

CK's slim fit line does a great job for the tall and slim.
When you get a chance, take a look in winners and you'll find them from 20-30 bucks.
That's not a knife!

My husband can occasionally can find stuff at the stores you mentioned, but like you said, it's hit or miss. He has also had success at Eddie Bauer and the Black and Brown label sold at The Bay.

The body fits great but the sleeves are always a problem... even when I get them in tall lol

Don't buy off the rack shirts.
Go to Spier & Mackay and get custom shirts made. Not that expensive and worth it for a proper fitting shirt!

Zara shirts fit quite slim, and I find their sleeves to be too long (so maybe perfect for OP if he finds other shirt sleeves too short).

Eddie Bauer has a specifically "Tall" line and all available in Canada. Lot's of good options from activewear longsleeves to more business casual/formal wear. Sleeves are 35-37 I believe. They fit my monkey 1m+ arms perfectly.

I used to buy them from CK but now Zara is my choice. Great great fit.

I can never purchase shirts off the rack. Ever consider buying custom shirts? They're usually not that much more than buying off the rack.

I find Kenneth Cole slim fit shirts fit well through the body + are the proper length, also CK slim fits are decently priced.

I also find Tommy Hilfiger has nice arm length (I am 5'10" but have rather long arms), so if you go for the slim or New York fit, you should be good there.
