Tall Order: 6 Menswear Brands for the Taller Chap

Tired of too short t-shirts and ankle-skimming jeans? It's not easy to get a good fit for gents with taller frames. There are any number of brands out there serving the larger chap, but for tall guys who aren't built heavily, finding a happy compromise between too short and too baggy can be pretty tricky.

To give you a helping hand, Team Base have hunted high (and not low) for some of the best menswear brands for tall men...

Uniqlo

uniqlo-big-tall-1

Uniqlo have a pretty good range of so-called “extra sizes” designed for those of us who typically have to buy too big or too small in order to get the right length or the right fit. Full of affordable, good looking basics, this is a decent spot to start your search.

Topman

Another high street staple, but Topshop is a good shout for casual attire which runs slim in taller sizes. If you're looking for length with a slimmer fit and fashion edge which won't break the bank, give their online shop a try where you'll be able to find a wider sizing range.

High and Mighty

It might not be the sexiest brand out there, but High and Mighty has a dedicated “tall” section, designed for longer, slimmer gentlemen. From knitwear to suits, the store carries tall menswear from brands including Ralph Lauren and Lacoste. It's not at fashion's cutting edge, but it is going to fit properly.

Slaters

venturaburg

Searching for a tall, skinny-fit suit that won't cost an arm and a leg? Slaters caters to wider frames, but it also does a side line in tall, skinnier suits which you can rent or buy to ensure you look dapper and dashing rather than swamped or stuffed in.

GAP

gap-fw-2012-mens-lookbook-1

GAP's range of jeans sizes makes them a sure fire source of longer, skinnier clothing. Their extended sizes collection has a massive range of fits to keep your ankles covered without dealing with a baggy waist.

Nordstrom

_7245019

Looking for something a little more upmarket? Nordstrom offers higher end fashion for the higher up gent, including those difficult, often-upper-thigh-exposing summer shorts. From Michael Kors to Hugo Boss you'll find upmarket labels in taller sizes here.
