Trendy/modern t-shirts/shirts/sweaters in Medium tall?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm having a heck of a time trying to find shirts in a medium tall size. I should be more specific, I'm having a problem finding GOOD shirts in a medium tall size. I'm not a big fan of the old-man-looking eddie bauer stuff.

Does anyone know where I can find shirts in this size (especially t-shirts, as I've yet to find a medium tall t-shirt). What about polos? I went to ralph lauren's website, but the smallest their polos go is large tall, which is a bit too big for me.

Thanks!

How tall are you?

6'1" --160lbs -- 33" waist.

The problems are my arms. They are incredibly long for my height. I get tall sizes somewhat for the length, but mostly for the SLEEVE length, especially in short-sleeved t-shirts.

What? I'm 6'1, 165 lbs, and I fit into H&M mediums just fine. Your arms can't be THAT long, you're probably self-conscious for no reason.

You probably have short arms. Or short shirts. The average person who is 6'1" should be closer to a large for US market shirts.

I'm 6'1" and can't always fit into a large. I usually go L-T, or just 16-36.

It really depends on your gorilla index.

J Crew has L-Tall and M-Tall, although I don't have any - I preferred dress shirt sizing.

J Crew's talls start at L, not M, afaik. Banana is the only one I know who does M-T.

I can't find any on their website. Mind pointing one out?

I'm 6'2, 175lbs, 31w and have similar problems...

AA tshirts are pretty long, I can usually do an AA medium as long as I remember to never dry it.

Also, the APCxMadras shirts that came out this Summer have exceptionally long sleeves and a fitted body. I bought a medium and probably should have gotten a large and dryed it once.

Hi
im about 6'3", 38" chest, 31" waist. H&M Medium tshirts are WAY too short for me. someone on the board recomended trying on Womens American Appareal, which i did, but it looked WEIRD.
which leads me to GAZZARRINI, you can find them occasionally at Daffy's or on Yoox.

a Medium is perfectly long enough of me. it has the length of an normal XL tshirt, but the body width of about 38" or 39". they arent too cheap, but ive rotated the hell out of a WHITE Tshirt atleast once a week this entire summer, and its still nice and wearable. (no curling up or shirnking at all)

hopefully theyre long sleeves have the same measurements as their short sleeves:

The *only* T-shirts I've found that will come close to fitting me (6'5", 33w, 40 chest) are the Gap "fitted stretch Ts" in Medium Tall. http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do...236&pid=278803 I get compliments when I wear these. As much as I hate it, they're only offered in black / white / gray. Like most here, I'd love to be stylish and creative, but it's hard when nothing else works! Fit precedes style. My arms are actually too long for M-T long-sleeve offerings. Some of the Gap / BR casual M-T shirts will work with sleeves rolled up a bit. All of my dress shirts are now custom tailored. The M-T sweaters from BR stretch enough to fit well. Try some of their silk blends... pretty reasonably priced and fit snuggly. I've found J-Crew & Eddie-Bauer stuff to be baggie even if it is M-T. I'm curious about Gazzarinni... any other experiences with them? I'd love to find something aside from Gap / BR that actually works! C'mon -- I have a model's build! Why isn't there anything for me to wear!!??
