Men’s Tall & Thin Khaki Pants: Personal Shopper

Lisa sent me a request for tall personal shopper help. Their family is going on a cruise this summer and need help finding tall khaki pants for their teen sons.

Client: Age 15, 6’8″, Size 34″ waist by 38″ inseam

Client: Twins, Age 13, Size 30″ waist by 34″ inseam

Prefers: Younger looking styles, not the same styles as their dad wears.

I understand your pain. I have two teen sons and finding items in their sizes are a challenge especially that are hip and up to date. For younger looking styles avoid pleats, but look for flat-front and slim or straight leg styles. First off, I recommend for the best fit, you may want to try a pair of custom made khaki pants.

Lands’ End also has several styles of khaki pants that will fit all sizes. You can also get them unhemmed if you need them longer than a 38″ inseam. The above pair is a Plain Front Traditional Fit No Iron Chino Pants.

I also have a 13 year old son that wears a size 30″ x 34″. We had to find him a pair of pants for band and had to have them immediately. I found that this style of Calvin Klein body pants is slim fitting and the
32″ x 34″ actually looks great on him.

Women’s Nautical Trends

I’m pretty much beach obsessed and I’ve always loved nautical/tropical clothing and accessories. Since I live in Utah, {wiping a tear}, trips to the beach are infrequent. When I wear nautical styles I just feel happy!  Doesn’t everyone? Hence the recent posts on boat shoes.  Plus this is a timeless trend, so you can collect nautical clothing and wear them for years!  I’m going to the Bahamas in a couple of months and I can’t wait! {insert heel click} I’m shopping heavily for nautical items. Enjoy my picks:
