Uniform for tall guys

Hey guys, I am looking to update my uniform mainly because what I have they stopped making the shirt and all the ones I have are getting very worn. My dilemma though is I am 6 foot 5 and my helper is 6 foot 7, so many shirts we come across just aren't tall enough. Right now we have some very nice athletic type polos that my moms friend embroidered. I would like to stay with something similar but can't seem to find anything in tall sizes that is an athletic material. My company is called turf and surf so I was looking at some fishing type polos from bass pro shop but again they would be a little short on me and way too short on my helper. Anyways thought I would put this out there and see if any of you guys know anything. Thanks in advance.

Most uniform companies will also do direct sales for people who don't want the service. Check out Cintas, as they have the nicest garments in the industry (I used to work for one of their competitors). Just know there's some lead time on getting the shirts.

Look up Duluth Trading Company. All the stuff they sell has lifetime no BS guarantee. I asked them if they were used for company shirts and silkscreened would they still honor the guarantee and they said yes. I have two pairs of pants and a pair of boots I just shipped back to them.

Didn't even think about Duluth, but check out the firehose pants. Super stain resistant, almost indestructible, and almost look like khakis.
