Introducing our athletic collection—cool, casual pieces that are designed to fit your tall life (and you)!
Athletic influences and sporty styles have proved to be style all-stars: inspiring fashion collections and even making an appearance at the office. But what made us launch our own tall men's athletic wear collection?
You. Since we founded American Tall, we’ve received emails and messages asking us for our same great fitting, hard wearing tall clothes in more relaxed styles.
So we decided to design the classic, comfort essentials you’ll go to day in, day out—those pieces that you’ll want to put on as soon as you get home from work, and those you’ll live in on the weekend. We spent time thinking about how to deliver on your wish list—soft, but hard wearing; comfy but well-cut; versatile enough to wear to the gym and in the rest of your life—to create a capsule collection of tall men's athletic wear essentials that can be worn together or mixed into your work-to-weekend wardrobe.
We designed these styles in superfine French terry fabric, in three wear-with-anything colors—grey mix, charcoal and black. From tall hoodies to tall sweatpants, cozy up to our favorite new pieces, just in time for winter.
Whether you’re lean and tall, muscular and tall, or big and tall, our tall hoodie and tall athletic pants combo is your new power pair. This is the suit you’ll actually want to put on every morning (and will definitely put on every night and weekend). Athleisure looks continue strong in this season’s fashion forecast and we love well-fitting hoodies and tall athletic pants from head-to-toe. Pair your tall warm-up suit with a crisp, tucked-in tall tee and a pair of sneakers for easy off-duty style.
In brief: We’ve designed what we think are the ideal tall shorts: trim without being tight, short without being NSFW (Not safe for work). As tall men, we know that most conventional shorts become thigh high, showing a little too much, covering not nearly enough. We’ve been there, we’re done with that. This style offers a 12” inseam and a 23” outseam, with an internal drawstring that allows you to wear them a little higher or lower. These are the perfect length to be both fashionable and functional. The un-brushed loop-back fabric keeps its shape well, making them ideal for jogging around the neighborhood, shooting hoops with friends and kicking back at home. Wear any of our tall mens athletic wear how you want and when you want.
The dilemma with introducing a line of casual basics is that you won’t want to wear anything else. With that in mind, we kept the shapes streamlined and the colors classic so that you can mix and match each tall piece of tall mens athletic wear with your existing tall outfits for looks as cool as they are cozy. Try working a tall hoodie into your everyday wardrobe, wearing it over a plaid button down or a crisp tall tee with a pair of tall chinos or dark wash tall jeans.
