Clothing for strangely proportioned folk

I suffer with a long torso in relation to my height, and as such getting any 1 piece or two piece zip together that is comfortable is proving very difficult. I am about six foot, but have a 31” inside leg and a 38” chest and so far have had to either put up with legs and arms that are too long and enough material in the arse and chest to fit two of me, or I end up begin castrated by the suit!

Any recommendations on a brand that might be a better fit for me before I reside myself to spending a fortune on made-to-measure?

I believe that Scott Leathers do a semi-custom suit where an off-the-peg suit is finished to your measurements.  Might be worth looking at as it will be cheaper than full-on made to measure.

Or try JTS

They have a shop and factory in coalsville and do different leg lengths off the peg.

I've crash tested their leathers on more than one occasion.
