Personal Shopping: Flared Skirt Extenders

Many of you know may know that I sell straight skirt extenders in tall lengths  in my store. They are perfect for wearing under pencil skirts.

I was contacted for help in finding flared skirt extenders for a tall teen.

Tall Personal Shopping: Tall Homecoming Dresses

I received a frantic email from a mother trying to help her daughter find a tall homecoming dress.  We all know that it’s super important to fit in during the high school years and finding special occasion dresses in tall sizes are next to impossible in the regular malls. Thankfully, I’m here to help.  This 6’1″ tall teen is 16 years old and would prefer a shorter type homecoming dress.  She has an athletic build and is fairly busty.

My recommendations are wearing something with some type of straps to keep the chest area under wrap.  Staples dresses may make you feel a little insecure about keeping everything in place (if you know what I mean).  I also think you may enjoy a shape with a little flare on the lower half to balance out the bigger upper body.

I have a round-up of many different types of tall homecoming dresses as there may be others out there looking for the same thing.  You may want to purchase several styles to see which one works the best and return the ones that you don’t like.  Be sure and check the return policies and allow enough time for shipping.

A steal at $25.  Add some crystal jewelry and shiny shoes to jazz it up.
Also in black or blue.

If all else fails, you can always wear a classic little black dress.

Big & Tall Personal Shopping: Short Sleeve Dress Shirts & Ties

I received a request for help from a big and tall guy.  He needs help with recommendations of some big & tall short sleeve dress shirts and co-coordinating ties.

Size:  3XLT – 4XLT, neck 20″.

This request is from a close friend of mine, so knowing his lifestyle and how busy he is, I’m also recommending wrinkle-free styles as I know he hates to iron his shirts.   Don’t we all? 🙂

Tall Personal Shopping: 40 x 38 Mens Jeans

I received a personal shopping request from a woman looking for some jeans for her 7 foot tall husband.

Wants: Size 40″ x 38″ long loose fit straight jeans.

Krista Responds: Loose fit and straight leg are different cuts.   I suggest you purchase this pair of Levi’s 559 which has a straight leg, but it is relaxed through the seat and thighs.

Mens Custom Made Jeans 44″ Inseam: Personal Shopping

Connie called me asking for personal shopping help.  Her husband is 6’7″ tall and wear a size 38″ waist and a 44″ inseam.  For year they have purchased Wranglers with 44″ inseam lengths. But apparently they are only for tall and super thin guys as now that his waist has reached a 38″, they only make them with a 36″ waist and smaller. A 38″ waist with a 44″ inseam is still very slim, so I find this odd.  This request wins for having the longest inseam on this site.

I have good and bad news. The bad news is that I don’t know of any more ready-made jeans options.  The good news is that you can get some jeans custom made.

 

  •  The cheapest option is getting them from Make Your Own Jeans.  I bought a pair made for myself around 5 years ago and they turned out fine.  So not sure of their current quality, but the prices are super great.

  • Another option is to try out a new company called Black Box Denim.  Last year they ran a Kickstarter campaign to get their company off the ground. I actually pledged to help this company and received one of the first pairs of Black Box Denim custom jeans.  It took a year, but I received my jeans this Fall. I was pleasantly surprised at how well they fit and they added an extra 2 inches in length.  Not sure if they didn’t get my measurements correct, but since they are skinny jeans, I can deal with the added length.  The prices are a lot steeper with this company, but the quality seems high..  Here are the mens custom made jeans from Black Box Denim.

That’s all that I can think of. If anyone else knows of an option to help out this guy, please let us know, by commenting below.

Personal Shopping: Mens Jeans Size 36 Waist by 40 Inseam

I received an email for a woman who requesting help in finding jeans for husband. He wears a men’s size 36 waist by 40 inseam.

Luckily for this guy a 36 inseam waist by 40 inseam length is very common in the big and tall stores. It’s tricky if his waist were any smaller.

Needs:  khakis, jeans and shorts
This tall man is in medical school and needs to look sharp, but is having a hard time finding clothes that will work for his long legs. He is probably the tallest man that has contacted me for shopping help and I’m honored to help!

Men’s 40″ Inseam Pants

Casual Male has this pair of mens 40″ inseam, flat front pants. For the younger crowd, I always recommend flat front pants.  This pair is wrinkle and stain-resistant.

JCPenney’s hemmed pants can be hemmed up to 38.5″ long.  But, you can get them unhemmed and I don’t know the exact inseam, but they may be around 40″ long.  I like this pair of Haggar plain front no-iron pants.

Similarly, Lands’ End also has hemmed pants up to 38″ long, but you can also get them unhemmed.  Here is a pair of no-iron, flat front pants.

Men’s Extra Long Shorts

I am unclear if you need the shorts for school or just for general every day wear. So, I’ve tried to pick a few pairs that may mix into both areas of your life:
mens 13" inseam shorts
unionbay extra long shorts men
mens 14" inseam shorts
mens below the knee shorts
I hope this helps you find some items that fit. If you do purchase any items, I’d love you to leave a comment below this post with how the items fit.  I hope you succeed in medical school and hope in the future you’ll share any advancements or research you come across that can help tall people live better lives!
