Generic full length clothing for a tall dude
June 3, 2012 12:11 PM Subscribe
I'm a 6'4 dude, medium build, long arms. I wear 38/36 pants and a medium tall shirt. I am a non affiliated humanist. I would like ankle to knee length clothing, loose fitting and of plain style. Complication: cultural overloads.

My research on this type of typically Arab/African attire suggests there are many stylistic variants that have certain meanings and/or cultural overloads. While I live in Canada, my city may be the most culturally diverse with many visitors and residents from related backgrounds. I don't want to piss anyone off or give the wrong impression by wearing what are to me just comfortable clothes, but to someone else suggest a certain religion or nationality.
Note I don't care about generic assumptions ("maybe he's Muslim") by people who are basically clueless.
Think about kilts: tartans Mean Something to those who know. I want to avoid meaning anything, like one does by wearing a plain fabric kilt. So I kind of want the Utilikilt version of desert wear.
Or am I over thinking this?
Suggestions on specific online retailers who would have such garments in my size - especially with appropriately long sleeves - appreciated.
