The Best Clothes For Tall Guys
When it comes to good style, tall guys often get the short end of the stick.
It can be frustrating to put together a professional, streamlined look when your legs are so long that your pants always look like capris, or your lanky arms stretch outside of every blazer you try on.
But it’s not impossible. You can find outfits that fit without endless trips to the tailor. You just have to know where to look.
We rounded up some oversized problem areas and the brands that actually fit them.
RFM CLOTHINGLONG ARMS
BANANA REPUBLICTHICK WAIST
RFM Clothing uses a sizing system specifically made for tall, athletic builds. Regular brands scale sizes up linearly: If you go up a size, you’re going up a size in length and in width. But tall, slender guys need something that sizes up in length but keeps a smaller torso.
Enter: RFM’s casual blazer. You choose your size based on your height and chest size—no sizing up to make the arms fit the length of your limbs, or to make the hem hit your butt. Instead of big and tall, think tall and lean.
It’s a little pricey, but it’s a savior for tall guys who normally need multiple trips to the tailor or to special order a custom size.
