Yeah, I'd go XL if I was going to get another flight suit, then have it taken in where it needs it.

Duly noted.  Now... to wait for payday...

You could always buy a basic jumpsuit. I bought mine at myjumpsuit.com for around $60. You just have to measure your chest circumference and look at their chart for length. Since you said you're tall, you'd want to look for a long. The jump suits are nice and i'd recommend them if you'd like to look at them.

I'm 6'2 and I just picked mine up today, it's a 40 reg and fits just fine. I'm about 200lbs so an average dude


EDIT: I take back what I said, this flight suit ended up being to short. I had to get a 42L and it now fits perfect!  Hope that helps

I can get what I need from Wal-Mart for $20-30.  But when i'm looking at upgrades, I'll keep 'em in mind!

I bought the material for mine and a pattern from hancocks. About 1/4 way through I thought I bit off more than I could chew and was about to go buy a dickies. I took a break from it and came back strong and tailored it the way I wanted with long sleeves under short sleeves (jango flight suit). I just omitted the pockets from the pattern and it came together great. I would have ended up spending $75 for a short & long sleeve pair of coveralls, bleach and dye. Mine cost about $30.

I ran into a similar problem myself. Found a 44L flightsuit on ebay, and the torso is way too short. I can get it on but it's not at all comfortable in the lower regions. It did however provide my wife with much amusement.
 May try the Dickies route instead.
