Hi , in a nutshell I have long arms and long sleeves really fit me. Just so happens my professional requires me to have a professional look and not shot up arms. I am after ideas on clothing.

1) Buy Short sleeved UBAC with some sort of arm covers

2) Find a UBAC or jacket that has long enough sleeves. Anything with 25inch + sleeves on a M size would be good!

Just measured the arms of my British army issue MTP ubac, sleeves came in at about 24" for medium.

I don't know about the medium buy my Viper UBACS has really long arms, at least 25" (its hard to measure perfectly as there is no shoulder seam).

Mate of mine who's a lanky git wears (what I think is) a surplus shirt, doesn't keep you as cool as a ubacs but I think there's more choice in sizes. The one he's got must have at least 26-27" sleeves but isn't a massive size.

Proforce forearm guards perhaps?
