I'm 5'8" and I just bought some work pants from Gap the other day. I bought the regular inseam so I imagine your wife would fit the long size. I bought size 00 in the pants so I totally understand your wife's struggles. When I go to mexx, I have to buy the smallest size they have in pants, 32, and the sales associate told me.. they only get 1 pair in that size for every style they have. So I have to buy them when I find something I like, otherwise, that's it, they run out and it's very hard to find the size in other stores. (mexx probably won't fit your wife though, because the length is just right for me and I don't think they have tall/long inseams).
I also have clothes from Joe Fresh. I just checked online and they indicated that the inseam of the pants are 32". I think the dress pants that I have from Joe Fresh were size 0. They were definitely loose in the waist for me and a little long. They were on clearance (standard black pants for work) so I bought them anyways and got them tailored.
Jeans - I like A&F. Again, I wear the regular inseam and they do have long styles but I don't see the small sizes in long too often. I think I wear a size 2 for their jeans and the regular length works for me. Aeropostale has "long" jeans too and the sizes are similar to A&F
Tops - that's a hard one. For work, if i wear a dress shirt, i like to tuck it in so it looks put together. I generally struggle throughout the day trying to tuck my shirt back in when half of it's sticking out. Try Zara - their tops fit me in length but I don't have any pants from them so I can't comment there.
With sweaters and tops, you just have to find the "longer" styles / cut, then they look normal on taller ppl.... hahaha....
Hope this helps!!
Thanks a lot for the suggestions! I'll let my wife know and she'll hopefully find something that fits in a style she likes.
