    I'm only 6'4" but I have very long legs and arms (short body!). I find it real hard to buy sports clothing that fits Nobody appears to sell warm-up tracksuits/sweats that are longer than 33" leg whereas I'm a only a mere 36"!

    Nike, Adidas,etc forget it!:mad: I don't particularly want to wear an NBA logo when I'm playing tennis! When are the top brands going to realise that there are long-legged and long-armed people out there!? :confused:

    Ok, frustatrion vented! Anyone else have this problem?

    It's more of a basketball "look", but I found the adidas Superstar pant to have a generous inseam - can't recall exactly, but it may be a 35-36" for size Large.

    I'm looking for more of a tennis look than basketball. I don't have any problem buying basketball clothes - even though I don't want any. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    what about the nadal type shorts they aren't long enough for you? The other option would be the capri's he wears. Just a thought.

    MIGJAM can regail you with his stories of his 13" Nike shorts. I wear the 10" shorts and I too am tall, they look fine, without dragging below the knee.

    MIGJAM stop stepping on your shorts and play tennis!!!!!

    What are you trying to hide exactly? You'll get a better tan with short shorts anyway. They're called "shorts" for a reason.

    I have no problems with shorts - I don't mind showing my skinny legs! It's warm-up tracksuits they I just cannot find in my size anywhere.

    The Nadal shorts on $23 if you were XL, like myself. I find they are good as well, being for a tall guy. Just a thought.
