Personal Shopping: Mens Size 5XLT Shirts

I received a request via our Facebook page for help in finding men’s size 5XLT shirts with extra long lengths.

One of the best places to find shirts in 5XLT with extra tall lengths is at JCPenney. Their extra-tall shirts have added length in long sleeves and short sleeves styles. All of them are button downs.  Here’s a sample:

Mens Tall Chambray Shirts

Men, if you only purchase one item to update your wardrobe, you need a chambray shirt! These lightweight denim shirts go with everything! They are usually made of breathable cotton fabrics that are durable too.

So how do you wear them? For a casual look wear your chambray shirt with tan chinos or colored jeans. You don’t want your jeans to be the same shade as your shirt – so go with darker or lighter pants or jeans. For work or dressier outings, throw on a tie over your chambray shirt. They also look hot peeking out under a blazer or sweater.

Hint: – women love chambray shirts, so if you’re on the fence, wear it for love! Here’s our roundup of our favorite tall chambray shirts for men:

Men: What to Wear with Straight Leg Jeans

In this post, I recently encouraged tall men to take the plunge and wear skinny or straight jeans. I might have mentioned that I bought my husband a pair for Christmas and much to my delight he liked them (he is not a risk taker when it comes to fashion). Well my delight quickly turned to dismay as I realized he has this image of what to wear with straight jeans and the image doesn’t fit his body type or his style. As a result, he’s only worn them once [insert single tear rolling down my cheek for dramatic effect]. I can’t say I blame him though. I myself have purchased an item a little out of my comfort zone and even though I love it, it sits in my closet because I have no idea how to style it. Isn’t this why we usually stick to the basics in the first place?! Well I love when I’m in that space and come across some guidelines or advice on how to get out of my slump and pull that [insert recent risky purchase here—for me it’s a pair of bright red jeans] out of my closet and go for it!
So here are a few ideas/guidelines. First, you don’t have to dress like a member of a rock band or a 20 year old college kid to rock straight jeans. Now if you love skinnies and you embrace them, you may ignore the following piece of advice. But this will apply to most men:
  • Skip the high top sneaker and/or the skin tight t-shirts. Yes, some men rock this look and look good and confident doing it. But these are usually young, very fit, and very metro men who can pull it off. For most of us (or I guess since I’m not a man I should say “you”), it’s not going to feel natural or comfortable.
  • *Stick to the basics. Wear a well fitting button up or a V neck sweater. It doesn’t have to be tight but it shouldn’t be very loose or baggy. Try “athletic fit” if you’re average or bigger build, or “slim” or “vintage” fit if you’re thin.
  • *If you’re not as thin as you think you need to be to wear this style, try layering. Wear a track jacket, a cardigan sweater, or a blazer over a t-shirt or button up.
  • *Nearly any shoe goes- just make sure it’s not too chunky. Since you’re tall, you probably have larger size feet. So you don’t want to wear a super chunky shoe with a skinny leg. Wear a slim shoe.
  • *A T-shirt goes with everything. Again, skip the over-sized baggy T. You’re trying to look proportioned. Wear a T-shirt that fits well and if you’re self conscious or have some weight around the middle, go for a casual look with a sweater or sweatshirt over the T. You’ll want to choose a “cool” sweat shirt that looks like you’re trying though–perhaps, a vintage wash, well made, nicely fitting one. Pair that with a nice T (meaning one that you didn’t score for free somewhere ;), cool sneakers and you look casual but still stylish.
  • *A polo shirt is a perfect choice. The guidelines are basically the same as for a t-shirt…but a polo is a bit more forgiving than a plain T.
