Custom Base Layers
Are there any companies out there that make custom sized base layers? I'm 6'6" and can not find base layers that even come close to fitting me. The largest sizes are too small in the shoulders and arms and huge in the trunk.
I bought a custom made jacket this summer from Beyond Fleece and now that I have seen how well properly made clothes can fit it makes me hate the base layer I wear even more.

find a good mountain equipment repair/tailor guy in your town and have something made."It is not the result that counts! It is not the result but the spirit! Not what - but how. Not what has been attained - but at what price.

There is a dude up here that does custom mountain clothing & gear, etc.
Atmosphere Mountainworks (Scott)
211 S. 1st St. Laramie, Wy 82070
I haven't been in there in a while, but I have some stuff I need him to sew, so I'll be dropping in there soon. I know he used to do fleece base layers, etc. I know he has made just about everything at one time or another... Might be worth a shot giving him a call, being as we are only about 2 hrs away from Boulder..."Have fun, get a flyrod, and give the worm dunkers the finger when you start double hauling." ~Lumpy
