    Ok Ladies. Don't know if any of you have this problem or not. I am trying to find a linen or silk shirt for the groomsmen to wear. I want something that is white with a design on both sides of the buttons. The problem is that we have three groomsmen and one of them is 6' 5" and the other two are a M and an XL. I can not find an "island shirt" that comes in regular sizes as well as tall sizes. Anyone have any ideas on where to go or a site online?

        We're getting our GM gear from these places and they have extended sizes, one of our gm is 6'5" too. Friday shirts has guayaberas that sound like what you are looking for:

        Guayabera, Guayabera shirts, Hawaiian dresses, Camisa, Mexican wedding shirts

            Paul ordered from this site (and this shirt, i believe) FridayShirts! | Your Cuban Guayabera Clothing and Tropical Outfitters Store!

            we don't have it yet - but can let everyone know when we do! it looks like they have a lot of size options.

                    I looked at Friday shirts last night but they are not really true tall sizes. If you look at the XL and the 1XL, the difference is the sleeve and the shoulder. He is 17 and 6'5". So he is lanky and really tall. The XL shirts look really dumb on him cause they are not long enough.

                    As for the pants, the only linen pants I found that came is a length of 36 was from Beach Wedding Attire: Drawstring Linen Pants, Cotton & Linen Shirts, Shorts for Men & Women - Island Importer. They are drawstring though. Not what I wanted, but have to go that route if I want them all in the same outfit. I never thought an outfit would be causing me a headache. If anyone finds linen pants that are 37 or 38" inseam let me know!!

                    Thanks for the link Melissa. I do like it but I want white or a creme color since their pants are a light tan. It looks like it only comes in blue and a grayish color or is mineral a darker tan? It says its a rayon/Polyester shirt. Would that be too hot for them to wear? I was thinking linen or silk since the material is light...
