Tall Thoughts

 I tried to get close to the earth this week, but I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to get back up!

Chambray for Him

I’ve mentioned quite a few times that I love chambray.  So you can imagine my delight as I’ve stumbled upon a few options for men…and TALL men at that!  I realize this might be a bit of a risk for some of you.  But trust me when I say, you will look great rocking this trend.  Not sure how to wear it?  Try it with khakis or even darker denim.  Most men don’t own colored denim (and I am not suggesting you run out and get a pair), but if you do, chambray + colored denim never gets old. Feeling a bit scared to try it?  Why not try it just with shoes or a tie? White shirt + Khakis + Chambray kicks OR white button down + chambray tie + khakis= laid back guy style.  Just keep everything else simple and go for it. Here are a few pieces to consider:

Row 1: 1969 striped chambray utility shirt in indigo stripe (Tall).  DC Studio TX SE. Up to size 14.

Row 2: Chambray Short. 11 inch inseam. Chambray Skinny Tie.

Row 3: 1969 Chambray Shirt (Tall). Men’s Straw Fedora in Chambray. 

My favorite is the classic chambray shirt in the third row.  What’s yours?

One idea is to get a custom made dress shirt from Blank Label. Their custom shirts start at $85.

My son has a 16″ neck, but just this past weekend, we had to have a dress shirt for a band competition. We ended up having to get one with a 17.5″ neck to fit his 36″ arms.  Here is the shirt we purchased.  It has a bit of stretch and feels nice:
