"Tall" fit shirts. Where to buy?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for the "Tall" fit t-shirts, dress shirts, and/or polos.

You guys know of any online stores that sell those, and better yet, have good quality?

Body type: slim
Height: 6'6"

Also, for clarification, where should your shirt end on your body with arms at your side?

im 6'3, 37" chest. I have yet to find a brand that makes shirts that fit slim on me (without paying over $100 on one). I buy Medium anything and have it tailored, the bottom of the shirts end just below my belt so I usually leave them untucked if Im wearing jeans.
I think Banana Republic offers Tall sizes on their online store, but I doubt theyre slim even if thats what theyre labeled as.

One unique thing about BR's tall sizes is that they offer a tall medium. I haven't seen that anywhere else. That said, I doubt it's any slimmer than, say, H&M. I haven't actually bought any but I've thought about it. Anyone know how long the sleeves are?

Hilditch & Key (dress shirts) has very tall tall sizes. They aren't considered a great value here (do a search) but for your situation, they are an option. Also, search on Jantzen if you are up for the custom mail order adventure.

I tried the Medium Talls at BR and they were too boxy for me. The cut at the shoulders and armpits were good, but the waist was too long by at least 4". I was better off going with a Medium at BR, although the cut at the armpit for that is too low for my taste.

I didn't measure it, but I'm 6' and the sleeve went about halfway down my hand. I wear a 33 sleeve on my Brooks Bros. shirts, so I'm guessing a few inches past 33.

Im 6'8" and have also been looking regularly now.

JCrew does sell Tall dress shirts online, but I have not ordered so can't comment on quality.

Eddiebauer offers Medium Tall dress shirts and they are fine for utility but I wouldn't call them a nice shirt.

The few I have now, I have found in department stores 16.5 x 35/36 and through my local big and tall. Honestly though, I am not satisfied with the quality or fit of either. I think we may fall into the MTM boat.

You might have luck with Ben Sherman slim fit large shirts. I got one of those and it fits my body nicely while still being long. I'm 6'1" though, so that might end up being a bit short on you, I've never measured my torso, it's not very short though.

I just noticed Old Navy has some tall fit shirts, they say 2" extra for the hem, 1" extra for the sleeves.

Some Banana Republic shirts are slimmer than others, even if they're not super-slim. Among the dress shirts, go for the ones labeled fitted, slim, or Heritage, and avoid the ones labeled classic.

bananarepublic.com: M-tall - XXL-tall
gap.com: M-tall - XXXL-tall
jcrew.com: L-tall-XL-tall

Also try polo.com, llbean.com, and landsend.com

for tshirts and polos, try American Apparel. I have found them to be way longer than average calvin klein tshirts, and actually nicer. Their polo shirts are great too.
