There existed a time where stylish essentials for big and tall men simply didn’t exist. There was the white dress shirt that one manufacturer made with the extra long sleeves. You could get an 3XL t-shirt and simply wear something ill-fitting, the right length but not the right width, or vice versa. If you really knew where to search you could find the basics. The boring, boring basics.
American Tall was founded with this frustration in mind: that tall men shouldn’t be relegated to basics. Instead, they should be able to find stylish fashion essentials just like anyone else.
I have been shopping the American Tall site for several years now (first discovering it while doing research for this very blog). I’ve even had the privilege of touring their facility and meeting the men behind the mission. They know and understand clothing, and creating a world of fashion for big men is their passion.
Of particular note is that American Tall offers not only Tall sizes, but Extra Tall as well which is great for many reasons. For example, I like my basic t-shirts very fitted and I order an extra large tall in those. But when it comes to long sleeved sweaters or hoodies, I order extra large-extra tall for a bit of extra length in the body and the sleeves. It’s easy to find your perfect fit with them because Jake and the team offer an exceptional no hassle return policy.
American Tall items I own and wear:
Chino Shorts for Tall Men in Chambray. I wear size 38 tall and they are quite fitted how I like them, and sit just above the knee.
Regular Fit Mens Tall Sweater Hoodie. I wear this one in an XL extra long.
Tall Men’s Jogger Sweats. I wear these in an XL tall.
Garment Dyed Regular Fit Tall V-Neck Tee. I own these in pretty much every colour they make them. V Neck is my personal preference but crew is available as well.
Zip up Tall Men’s Hoodie. I wear this in an XL extra tall.
