Personal Shopping: Tall & Thin Interview Clothing

Client: 6’7″ tall man, Age 20 living in Pennsylvania.

Wants: 2 pairs of dress pants, 2 shirts with ties and a pair of jeans

Budget: $300-$500

Jamie is trying to help her nephew look professional for an interview. She is willing to purchase him some new clothes. Her nephew is hoping to get a job as a bank teller or something similar.

Krista Responds: I recommend when you are interviewing for office type jobs, that you wear the actual outfit you would wear to your future job. That way your potential employer can see that you know how to dress appropriately. He/she may want to hire you on the spot as they can see you fitting in there.

Stafford Broadcloth Wrinkle Free Extra Tall Dress Shirt in a 16.5 x 38-39″ sleeves. I like this striped option, but they also have solid colors too.

Silk Tie – in a black color to blend it in with the black pants. Black Leather Belt. Dockers oxfords – have good reviews.

To get the exact size you need, try a pair of custom made pants from Make Your Own Jeans. The office pants start at $50. I suggest for his age group, a flat front style with a mid-rise and regular hem (non-cuffed).  A lightweight wool in a solid or pinstripe is nice in either a gray or black.

I hope I hit within your budget. You’ll have to pick and choose the items that will work for you.  Good luck with the job hunt. The most important thing you can do, is stand up straight and tall as you will always look confident when you do.  Remember that studies have shown that tall people make more money, so that alone will help you climb the ladder of success!

Tall Personal Shopping: Men’s 40 Inseam Pants (Non-Wool)

I received a personal shopping request from Amy. She is shopping for her 6’5″ tall husband who has a 32″ or 33″ waist with a 40″ inseam.  She has checked out our section of men’s 40″ inseam pants and desires a pair that is machine washable for work and is non-wool.

The best suggestion I have for you at this time is to order a pair of Custom Made Chino Pants from Tailor Store. Prices start at $69.95 which is excellent for custom made pants. The Tailor Store is is Sweden, but surprisingly your order should arrive in 15-20 days.
