Welcome!

Most jock shorts are just fine for holding up socks, unless you use EDGE socks, which you probably don't (they are the $30 per pair socks).

Shin straps do the same thing as tape, but they're re-usable.

At your height, you may want to use suspenders because you'll likely be too narrow in the waist/hip for XL pants but will need them for your height. You may have to look into custom pants that are taller as well.

Reebok makes good gear. I use Reebok protective myself. You may want to look into the 9k pants as they should be a little longer in the legs.
