Understanding Tall Sizes vs Regular: More Than Just Extra Length

Tall clothing isn't just about adding inches to sleeves and pant legs. It's about understanding and respecting the unique body proportions of taller individuals. For instance, tall men often find that standard jeans don't accommodate their thigh or torso dimensions, leading to discomfort and a less-than-ideal fit. Similarly, tall women need clothing that considers broader shoulders, longer torsos, and other proportional differences.

At American Tall, we don't stretch sizes; we redesign them. Our clothing is engineered to fit every dimension of a taller frame, ensuring comfort and style in every piece.

What Height is Considered Tall for Men's Clothing?

For men, a height of over 6'3" is typically considered tall. This is where standard sizes fall short (pun intended!) and where American Tall steps in. Our tall men's clothing is designed to cater to men up to 7'1", ensuring a perfect fit for every tall gentleman.

We've also recently launched our Semi-Tall sizes across some of our most popular products. Semi-Tall products are designed for men that stand 6' - 6'3".

Tall Sizes vs Regular Women's Sizes: The Difference is in the Details

While the fashion industry has routinely recognized men over 6’ requiring taller clothing options, women’s fashion has been slower to adopt a fit tailored to the vertically gifted.

Regular sizes often miss the mark for taller women, leading to awkward fits and uncomfortable styles. Tall sizes, on the other hand, consider the unique proportions of a taller woman's body, ensuring a flattering and comfortable fit.

We at American Tall have made it our mission to ensure tall ladies, just like their male counterparts, have access to clothing pieces that are made to fit while looking fashionable.

What’s the Height for Tall Clothing?

In general, tall clothing is designed for men over 6'3" and women over 5'9". At American Tall, we specialize in these heights, ensuring that our clothes are not just longer, but also proportionally designed for a taller build.

Crafting the Perfect Fit: Our Approach to Tall Clothing

Sizing Tall Men's Clothing


When designing and sizing tall men’s clothing, it’s about more than just lengthening the sleeves and pant legs and calling it a day. These clothes, which are designed to fit guys over 6’3”, should be made to accommodate a difference in physical shape as well as height.

For example, many tall guys with a solid build find that their thighs don’t fit into jeans that they buy from the mall, or are too uncomfortably tight to wear on a regular basis. The best tall clothing for guys is sized so that all of their physical proportions are taken into account.

At American Tall, we’ve taken our dedication to sizing one step further, and have developed a line of tall apparel consisting of a full size range in both tall and extra tall options. That way, there’s something for every body shape.

Sizing Tall Clothing for Women


Just like tall men, it can be difficult for tall women to nail the sizing on their favorite pieces of clothing. Tall women’s clothing must fit a frame that isn’t just taller but is often broader in several key places like the shoulders, waist, and thighs.

All of our clothing for women is engineered so that every dimension fits a taller woman’s frame. That includes typical measurements like the sleeves and pant lengths, as well as extended body lengths (go ahead, tuck in that shirt!), and proportional armholes and shoulder lengths.
