The State of Tall Men’s Clothing

I grew ‘up’ in the 90’s. Back then, people only bought clothes at actual stores, mostly in malls. At a tall and slim 6′7″ and 215 lbs, finding long enough clothes was a nightmare. I’d wander the mall for hours looking for that one shirt that was inadvertently made extra long. And pants were even worse. The longest I could find were 34″ inseam which left me revealing my socks.

The reason manufacturers neglect tall men is that there are far fewer of us than average height people. This has to do with the. Our savior though is online shopping. When low volume items like clothes for tall slim men are stocked in large wearhouses and shipped direct to the customer, many of the fixed costs disappear. So as online clothes shopping became more common, so did tall men’s clothing. Nowadays, many of the big brand names have lineups for tall men’s clothing. Mind you, we do tend to spend more on tall men’s clothing as we almost always have to buy new, deals are less common, and online shopping often has shipping costs attached. But all that’s a small price to pay to get long enough clothing!

Clothes for Tall Slim Men, Tall Skinny Guys

When I started buying tall men’s clothes online, I would opt for the large tall size. These were vastly better than the regular large sizes I used to buy. Yet my clothes still didn’t fit as good as those of average height people. This is because, in addition to being tall, I’m also thin. My 215 lbs may sound like a lot, but spread out over my 6′7″ frame, it really isn’t. This is the case for a lot of tall men, as people tend to get relatively slimmer as they get taller.1

More recently, some big brands have started offering medium tall and even small tall sizes. Additionally, niche brands have started popping up, such as (TST) and American Tall. Brands such as these focus exclusively on tall clothing, and do a great job catering to us tall slim men. Their clothes aren’t merely graded up from those for average height people, but actually designed for us from start to finish. Sometimes you can see this in the details, like larger pockets and buttons.

Big and Tall Men’s Clothing

There is a lot of confusion surrounding big and tall men’s clothing shops. Is it truly for men who are big and tall? Perhaps it is for men who are big or tall? In my experience, you will definitely find clothes for average height people who are big as well as clothes that work for people that are kinda tall. As far as people who are exceptionally tall, whether you are big or thin for your height, you won’t find much help at big and tall clothing shops.

My advice to the truly big and tall men out there is to check out some of the niche tall slim brands I mention on this page. Often, they say they do clothes for tall slim men simply to distinguish themselves from inaptly named big and tall shops. For instance, the tall thin clothing brand,, does jeans in 44 x 38, which in my opinion is truly big and tall.

Tall Slim Men’s Shirts and other Tops

There are a lot of different kinds of shirts and tops out there: T-shirts, polos, dress shirts, sweaters, hoodies etc. What these all have in common is the way they are sized: small, medium, large, extra large, etc. This one dimensional sizing system ties width and length together. So not only do you have to be a common size to get a good fit, but also average proportions. Tall slim men and tall big men obviously are neither, and this is why regular shirts fit us particularly poorly. For us, tall sizes or custom clothes are the way to go. The niche tall slim brands give us a lot of options here. The exception is for, which for the most part you’ll have to look to the bigger brands.
Scaling of clothes for tall slim men

When checking the fit of a tall slim men’s shirt, the first thing we do is check the length of the torso and sleeves. But additionally, there are some finer details that are important, like the position of the shoulder seam on the shoulder, and snug but not tight neck.

 

 

 

Tall Slim Men’s Jeans and Other Pants

Jeans and pants are better than shirts at accommodating different body shapes, like a tall slim build. This is because they’re sized by both length and width. However, finding the right size is still a challenge. If you wander the mall for instance, you likely won’t find anything longer than a 34″ inseam. Online though, the bigger brands often carry up to 36″ length. I’m lucky enough to be able to wear a 36″ inseam (my height comes more from my torso). For those needing 38″, you’ll have to look to the niche brands, like. Their tallest and slimmest jeans are a 32″x38″. If you need even longer and slimmer, then you might check out this page:.

 

 

 

Tall Men’s Custom Clothing

It used to be that all clothing articles were made one at a time and for the wearer (bespoke). Industrialization saw an end to this. Factories, assembly lines, automation, and overseas manufacturing all pushed us towards mass production. This lowered costs, making clothing more affordable for everyone. But outliers like us tall slim men could no longer find proper fitting clothing.

Currently though, there is a resurgence in custom clothes. This is spurred on by a rise in online shopping as well as advancements in digital manufacturing that reduce the cost of mass customization. It is now possible to get a custom tailored tall men’s dress shirt for as little as US, which is truly extraordinary. And it’s not just shirts but also bespoke t-shirts, pants, and even suit jackets. One of the companies leading this movement is.

Drying and Stretching Clothes for Tall Slim Men

If you’ve read this far, I’d wager you know a drier can shrink a tall man’s clothes. I’ve learned to avoid the drier like the plague. Hang drying clothes may take longer and leave them wrinkly, but it preserves their length and quality better and also happens to be friendlier for the environment.

If for whatever reason a drier has turned you pants into knickerbockers and shirts into belly tops, fear not; it is possible to stretch your clothes back out. There are right and wrong ways to do this though. Take stretching the length of shirts for example. If you just grab the shirt and pull down, you’ll accidentally increase the width, the last thing tall slim men want. Instead, clamp a couple boards to the bottom of the shirt and hang it. It helps to get the shirt wet where you want the stretch to occur. Apparently is also helpful.

Altering Clothes for Tall Slim Men

The main type of alteration you can do for tall men’s clothing is to take in the sides on a shirt. The basic idea is to cut out material near the side seam and then stitch it back together. It helps to first use some bobby pins to find your desired girth. You can find tailors who will convert modify shirts for tall skinny guys for not too much. But better yet, there is a device known as the which can even be used as a substitute for altering.

There is only so much alteration you can do and some clothing is just too baggy and impractical to fix. Take a dress shirt with too long of a shoulder seam for instance. Adjusting that seam is extremely difficult and you’re better off buying a new shirt.

Tall Men’s Shoes and Accessories

While it is pretty clear tall men need longer clothes, there are also a variety of accesories and so on that should be longer for us too. For instance, we’ll need longer ties, wider clothes hangers, and most importantly, bigger shoes! Check out some related posts below.

Brands with Tall Men’s Clothing Lines

Below is a list of brands that happen to have tall men’s clothing lines.

Columbia

Go to Shop

Columbia is primarily and outdoors clothing company. They make all kinds of jackets, vests, and snow pants. And lucky for us, they make them in tall sizes. I actually have one of their large tall Alpine Action winter jackets. It is an awesome jacket and I figure it could work for someone quite a bit taller than myself. The only downside is that they don’t do small or medium tall. This means tall slim guys like me might get a slightly baggy fit. I don’t mind this for a winter jacket though as it means I can layer underneath for those really cold days. I highly recommend Columbia’s tall men’s clothing.

Levi’s

Go to Shop

Levi’s strives to be the top denim jeans seller on the planet. In so doing, they have a lot of sizes, some that work for us tall people. Their longest inseams are 40″ which can come in waists as narrow as 32″ and as wide as 42″ last time I checked. They also do tall sizes for many other clothing items, like tall men’s shirts, hoodies, and jackets.

Carhart is most famous for their sherpa jackets, which happen to come in tall men’s sizes. They’re warm and rugged, making for great work jackets. Carhart also does a variety of other tall men’s tops, like hoodies and t-shirts. Some of their stuff is available in medium tall for tall skinny guys.
