Help me stay warm: tall+slim outerwear for women

Winter coat filter: Hello minds of mefi, I am looking for an uber warm women's parka. Complexity level: I am six feet tall and size 4. Brands like North Face are great, but the sleeves are too short and waist is too wide. So I am looking for quality brads that I could look into that would fit a tall, slim woman. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks in advance.

What is this? A kitchen for ANTS??

I'm 6'5". It recently dawned on me that the reason I hate doing the dishes isn't due to my fundamental laziness, but because scrubbing dishes while bent over for half an hour really does a number on my back.

Tall Person + Couch = Happiness?

My boyfriend (who is 6'4") and I are buying a couch, and we're looking for one that would provide neck support for his head.

How to find clothes for a tall, thin man in Chicago?

I am a very lucky woman, and my husband is tall and slender. In fact, he's enough of a statistical outlier that we can't even find clothes that fit poorly but could be tailored in. Shirts with the correct collar have sleeves that only come to his elbows, pants that fit his waist inevitably fall above his ankle, etc. Please help me dress my tall, thin husband in Chicago!

Too tall for an Altima?

Tall guy + short car: I have a chance at a great deal on a like-new 2001 Nissan Altima. Trouble is, I'm a little tall for it and am not really comfortable. The seat mounts look unneccesarily high to me, but local dealers know of no seat-lowering kits. I'm having no luck on the web. I'd even consider a swap for a power seat if I knew it would lower more. Any suggestions?
