Some people love the freedom that summer brings, but others get frustrated because of their inability to style t-shirts well. When you’re a tall guy or gal, this can be a lot more challenging.
For most taller men and women, tall t-shirts are a much better alternative to regular-sized tees. Since they’re longer in most measurements, they’re much more comfortable and offer a greater range of movement to those of us with taller proportions.
There’s no need to resort to simple, uninspired outfits just because the weather is warmer. Today, we’ll showcase some of our favorite styles of t-shirts for tall women and men, and give you some style ideas on how you can make your basic tees look a little bit more exciting.
How Much Longer are Tall T-shirts vs Regular T-Shirts?
First, let’s talk about the American Tall t-shirt. We’ve designed both our men’s and women’s tall t-shirts with plenty of length both in the torso and the sleeves to match your tall proportions.
The American Tall men’s t-shirts range from 31 to 34 inches in length. Our women’s tees are also proportionally long, offering 28 to 30 inches in length. That’s several inches longer than the average retail tee, which measures 28 to 31 inches in length for men and only 25 to 27 inches in length for women.
