  1. Women’s Tall Clothing

Tall Personal Shopper:

Hi Krista,

I am 6’8”, weigh 225, and am 34 years old. I am looking for pants/jeans and a shirt for going out to a nice dinner. I normally wear a 2X Tall for shirts and pants a 36 waist X 38 length

Ideally I would like:

· one pair of go out black pants not pleated

· one pair of go out jeans (not baggy but not tight)

· Two shirts to go with each of the pants

I look forward to your recommendations.

Play it Safe, Give Gift Cards to Your Favorite Tall People

Christmas is coming…as in, it’s almost here! Undoubtedly you have a few items left on your to-buy list. My solution for last minute gifts is pretty simple: gift cards.

I know gift cards seem impersonal and it’s more fun to find that perfect gift yourself. You envision the recipient’s grateful expression as they tell you they can’t believe you knew exactly what to buy them (and ideally it’s in a crowded room so everyone can see just how awesome you are). But the truth about gift cards is, they are [how shall I put it] necessary!

Gift cards especially come in handy when there is a tall gal or guy on your Christmas list. I love gifts (who doesn’t), but being a tall girl myself I’ve definitely experienced the disappointment when holding up that sweater and realizing the sleeves aren’t even going to reach your wrist. Or opening that pair of jeans and knowing that though the 80s are coming back, there is no way you could pull off those high waters. Then comes the awkward part of either admitting it doesn’t fit or feigning adoration of the gift.

I’m guessing that little scenario isn’t the one you’ve been envisioning. So it’s okay—even preferred—to play it safe with a gift card! You can still personalize it by getting one from the perfect store where you know your tall friend or family member can find plenty of tall clothing to suit her needs. And seriously, you’re giving the gift of guilt-free shopping! Is it me, or is that one of the best gifts of all?! So go ahead, purchase that gift card and have no fear—you’ll see that look of appreciation and you’ll know that it’s real!

Men’s 37 Inseam Jeans – Hudson – Athletic Fit

This pair of Hudson Jeans with a 37 Inseam are designed for the athletic build. They have a relaxed, straight leg style and are a medium blue wash with slight whiskering. Waists sizes are 29″ – 40″ – so you tall, thin guys can wear them too! Get free shipping both ways, so if you aren’t sure of the size, get two pairs and return the one that doesn’t fit for free.  Watch the video above for more views.

Tall Personal Shopper: Mens Long Rise Jeans

Here is the latest Personal Shopper Request:“Krista, I stumbled across your website after learning today that Lands’ End no longer offers the men’s long-rise jeans and plain front chinos that I have been buying for my husband for at least 20 years.
I’m hoping you can help me find long-rise jeans and/or chinos in size 35″ (or 36″) waist and 33″ inseam. My husband is 69 years old, 6’4″ tall and weighs about 160 lbs. He has a long torso, thus the need for the long-rise. He prefers his jeans in medium to dark blue colors, and is not fond of “distressed” denim with the bleached-in wear marks. We have been spending $50 to $70 for his pants at Lands End, but would spend more if necessary. He lives most of his life in jeans or chinos, so I will be very grateful for any suggestions.
Thank you for your efforts on our behalf.  – Jackie”Jackie,It’s extremely frustrating when a product you have been using for years, suddenly is discontinued.  I feel your pain. I had been purchasing custom made women’s dress shirts from Lands’ End and suddenly one day, they quit selling them.
I think you will find good luck with the following items from Eddie Bauer. You will have to go up to a 36″ waist.

Eddie Bauer – Classic Fit Wrinkle Free Casual Chino Pants – Long Rise, 36″ Waist, Choose with our without cuffs and you can get them in a 33″ inseam.

Eddie Bauer’s Jeans come in set inseams and 33″ are not available. In case a 34″ can work, I recommend:

Another option would be to create a pair of custom made jeans.

Men’s Tall Coat With Extra Long Sleeves

I received the following email from Beth who was trying to find a coat for her tall, thin son with extra long sleeves. She has emailed Columbia for more info and found them to be very helpful.
“I wanted to let you know that my son’s Columbia jacket arrived today. Both if us were pleasantly surprised to find that the sleeves were long enough. We did have to go up a size. We got him the Tall Whirlibird Parka with the removable liner. The liner could have been a little longer but is acceptable. The outer jacket sleeves are long enough so that when he stretches his arms out straight in front if him the sleeves still cover his wrists. We are very pleased. I hope this information will be helpful to you and your readers.”
