Long Inseam Jeans for Men

One thing I have noticed about men is that they tend to find something that fits comfortably (their first priority) and looks good (second priority) and wear it for like ever. And maybe it did look good…back when NKOTB was popular (and I’m not talking about their reemergence a few years ago).  There is a way to embrace the style without looking silly or taking too much of a risk.  But styles change and if you want to look current—I’m not talking about metro sexual trendsetter, just current– you have to change with them. 

I think both tall men and tall women struggle with finding the right fit, but perhaps due to their general disinterest in all things fashion, men need a bit more help. I have a passion for tall people wearing long inseam clothing that fits. It’s difficult but not impossible!

long inseam jeans for men and men's tall jeansEnter Tall Fashionista.  Our first topic?  Tall jeans.  Men, please do not wear high waters.  They are not cool.  They were never cool.  And in this day and age you can find long inseam jeans at almost any price.  So what is hot right now? Wearing fitted, dare I say, skinny long inseam jeans. I can see you cringing now.  But don’t walk away just yet!  While women appreciate a man who cares about his appearance, they typically don’t like a man who dresses just like they do.  Not everyone needs to wear skin tight jeans.  So I’m not referring to jeans that look plain ridiculous on males.  I’m simply challenging you to lean toward a fitted silhouette rather than the baggy or loose fit that was the look du jour back in the day. 

Depending on your physique you might be able to get away with true skinny jeans.  If you are tall, slim but not rail thin (think athletic) and have that V thing going on (broader in the shoulders and then slimmer in the waist/hips), then go for it!  You have what most men want.  Get a pair of long inseam skinny or slim jeans and even if you feel a bit uncomfortable at first, I promise once the compliments start rolling in, you will start to feel more confident.  If you’re very skinny and very tall, you might want to go with a long inseam slim boot or straight leg.  It will give you a bit more volume while without being out-of-date.  And if you’re stocky or what a girlfriend of mine describes as “football husky” as my husband is, go with a long inseam straight leg or even a skinny- but one in which you’ve read reviews and isn’t model skinny.  I know- it seems complicated. However, the beauty of online shopping is you can order things from the comfort of your couch in the comfort of your home and try, try, try until you find that perfect fit. 

It’s a risk.  I know it’s scary.  But aren’t you men supposed to be the risk takers?  Just put those baggy loose fit jeans in the back of our closet (I’d say throw them out but I don’t want you to stop reading!) and go for it!
