Big clothes for big blokes.......?

Hiya, I used to ride MTB but having had a few years off and gained some bulk I have bought myself a nice Scott S30 Flat Bar which I got out on for the first time last week and surprised myself at how quickly 32 miles seemed to pass by.

My question relates to suitable clothing for riding. I have many layers for MTB riding but I would like something more suited to road riding but at 6ft 6ins tall and over 17 stones in weight, I'm not your average sized pedaller. I don't look good in anything that's slim fitting, which pretty much rules out everything I've looked at so far but the tops I would wear for MTB are too flappy. Also, most of the tops I have looked at are WAY too short and ride half way up my back as soon as I assume a riding position.

Any suggestions......?
