    How Your Clothes SHOULD Fit as a Tall, Slim Man

    As a tall man, you've probably compromised in the clothing department for a long time. You might think your body type is just "hard to shop for." But have you ever considered it's the clothing that's the problem - not you?

    You deserve clothing that fits and flatters YOU. And we're here to help you find it.

    So what should you look for when your clothes shopping? How SHOULD your clothes fit as a tall slim man?

    There are 6 things to look for in the perfect tall man's shirt, and we want to share them with you today. So look no further: here's how to find clothing that actually fits and flatters you:

    What Makes the Perfect Tall Man's Shirt?

    1. Quality Details

    It's important you get your money's worth - which means the tall clothing you buy should have high quality elements. Buying a tall jacket or sweatshirt? Check to make sure the zipper is smooth and the drawstrings won't easily fray.

    Thankfully, quality is one of our top priorities at Redwood. You can trust our details like metal buttons, smooth zippers, durable drawstrings, and more will stand the test of time.

    2. Long Enough Sleeves

    One of the biggest peeves for a tall man is a long sleeve shirt with sleeves that are just a tad too short. You're left pushing them up to your elbows or flashing a little too much of your wrist to look professional - a no-win situation.

    Your sleeves should rest on your wrist perfectly, without spilling over your hand or feeling too tight and stiff. If a size chart is available, make sure your shirt will fit by noting the measurements on each shirt's sleeve.

    3. No Fear of Flashing

    #awkwardtallguymoment: when you raise your arms and flash your stomach. Unfortunately, most shirts that aren't designed for tall guys come with this issue. It's infuriating but true: if a shirt is too short, it just doesn't look good - and it doesn't fit you well.

    Your shirt should have enough fabric to cover your stomach should you raise you arms, bend over, etc. But your shirt also shouldn't overcompensate by giving you too much fabric so it feels like you're wearing a dress. There is a perfect balance out there, and that's what you want to find.

    4. A Tall & SLIM Fit

    Your a tall slim guy, which means "big and tall" won't cut it. You need a shirt that's long enough yes, but also slim enough (and that combo is rare to find).

    Our shirts are slim enough to flatter your build, but long enough so you're not left wearing a crop top. That's the sweet spot you want to find: tall and slim, not tall and wide.

    5. Comfortable Materials & Design

    You should feel comfortable and confident in what you wear! A lot of factors contribute: the shirt's material, design, fit, and color. But if you're paying for something, it should make you feel comfortable - it's that simple.

    At Redwood Tall Outfitters, we use 100% cotton on everything we make, so it's soft to the touch and even softer on your back. Each piece of clothing is designed to be flexible for movement (you can reach, exercise, lounge, and do just about anything without having to adjust your clothing every few seconds). And when you're comfortable, you'll feel a lot more confident in what you wear.

    6. Available in Colors You Like

    Lastly, the shirts you buy should reflect your personality by offering the colors you already know and love. If you're looking for a well fitting shirt but only find ones in colors you don't love, it probably isn't even worth your investment.

    We offer 7 different colors are Redwood, and we chose each to be neutral and tasteful so you can mix and match with all your other clothes seamlessly. Timeless and flattering, we know you'll love (and look good in) each of our color options.

    Don't Compromise

    You've compromised long enough - wearing shirts that are too short, too wide, too flimsy, too scratchy... the list goes on. The right clothing for you does exist out there - and it might be right in front of you.
