Dress Shirts for Tall Men
Being tall has its advantages, but finding clothing that fits isn’t one of them. You could wander around in big-and-tall sections, or you could work with your exact measurements and stop the guesswork.
When it comes to downplaying or highlighting certain features, be sure to take note of the options at your disposal. While it’s debatable to what degree certain shapes, patterns and colours can influence perception, you can be sure that some elements are more complementary to your figure than others.
Vertical stripes, for example, are said to elongate the form. The effect could be subtle, hardly noticeable at all except on an unconscious level. But so much of style is about subtlety. You might as well use whatever elements you have at your disposal, especially if you’re taller, shorter, thinner, heavier than the average guy.
If you are trying to add some balance to a tall, lean physique, vertical stripes are something to avoid (if you insist on wearing them, opt for wider stripes with plenty of space between). Black, likewise, is associated with slimming, so not your best option. Texture and depth can help you achieve a more well-rounded look, which still leaves plenty of opportunities to impose your personal style on your dress shirt.
The most important element for tall men is, of course, fit. Custom measurements are your best bet for achieving a fit that works for your dimensions—letting you move without fear of cuffs or shirttails that rise to uncomfortable heights. If you want to de-emphasize your height, select regular or even relaxed fit. Slim fit, though considered the most fashion-forward, produces the kind of contoured lines that accentuate the wearer’s physique.
