Long undershirt for Tall guy?

I'm 6'5", and I have a problem finding decent t-shirts for an undershirt to concealed carry. I saw these 5.11 shirts and read a review which seemed to state that it went 9" or so under the belt, which I would hope would be enough for me, but wanted to know if anyone has had experience with this type of problem. I normally wear Tall, but that only goes to my belt-line. Xtra-tall goes about 3" below my beltline, which is acceptable, but I'd prefer 5" for my tuckable holster. Thanks for the help!

I'm 6'8" and I feel your pain.

I happen to run across some tshirts at the mall one a FootLocker store to be precise. I bought the 3XL Tall and they are very long and stay tucked in too. I also happened across some at JC Penny that seemed to be about the same size and length. I'm not sure if your looking for just a regular tshirt, or an undershirt to wear under a dress shirt, but the ones I got from Penny's have pockets and the ones from FootLocker did not.

I have tried the ones from Duluth and will say they are similar to the ones I can find around here. On that note though I always check whenever I'm at the Mall and typically I can find them on sale for $8-$10 a pop, whereas through Duluth they are at least twice that plus shipping.
I reject your reality and substitute my own.

that's problem even for us shorty's at 6'4". if you want to stay warm in cold weather wear a wool-synthetic blend undershirt over a silk under. and then top layers.

well I'm only 6'2" but tall through the middle, & I found some tall t-shirts at Shopko, that are 8-10" below my beltline... & were cheap...

I'd like to see a Shooter's Leotard. The longest shirttail will still ride up with wear and get in the way after repeated draws while competing or practicing.

Thanks for the good information. I'll take a look into it. I'm looking for an undershirt for under a company shirt which is way to short for my tastes.

I used to have that problem also. I'm 6'6'', and had a hard time for a while. Now, however, wearing super long plain white t-shirts is the new fashion for urban youths, so they are readily available at most mall type shoe stores and urban clothes stores. BTW...footlocker regularly has plain tees, 5 for $20, with plenty of tall options.
