It’s a Sunday morning. There’s a chill in the air, and you’re settling in for a long day of watching sports, puttering around in the kitchen, or playing video games. What do you wear to make sure you’re cozy and comfortable all day long? If you’re anything like us, the answer is always a men’s extra-tall hoodie, and here are our top 5 choices of slim-fit hoodies for tall skinny guys – and how to style them!.
BUT FIRST, SOME HOODIE HISTORY…
The hoodie sweater originated in the early 20th century as a garment that could protect New York City factory workers from chilly temperatures on the factory floor during the winter. Soon, they were being made for high school athletes to wear as they waited on the sidelines for their turn to compete during cold weather.
It didn’t take long for the hoodie to turn from a utilitarian garment into a true fashion staple. Even though they began as a mainstream article of clothing (and who is more all-American than a high school athlete?), they were quickly embraced by a diverse range of communities, including skaters, punks, and rappers. Huge musical acts like the Wu-Tang Clan were known both for their music and their style, which primarily consisted of hoodies and Timberlands.
Despite this rich and complex history, these garments have largely stayed the same. This is a boon to enthusiasts, but unfortunate for those who just can’t fit into a standard size. That’s where slim-fit hoodies for tall skinny guys come in.
ARE TALL SLIM-FIT HOODIES JUST LONGER?
If we’ve solved at least one #tallpeopleproblem, it’s definitely helping tall guys find the right-sized clothing. Hoodies, for example, are such a universal wardrobe staple, and we believe there should be options available for anyone who wants to wear one. That’s why we’ve developed a line of hoodies for tall skinny guys available only at American Tall.
Our tall men’s slim-fit hoodies aren’t just longer. All their measurements are designed with a taller guy’s proportions in mind to ensure that both the torso length and arm length fit with comfort and accuracy. We offer options that will appeal to everyone, and as a result have developed several unique styles – including some with a zip.
