Thanks to streetwear pioneer Kanye West, sweats, crewnecks, and other casual menswear fits have escaped the streets and settled into once-formal office environments, red-carpet events, and other gaudy settings.
What’s not to love? Men’s streetwear is effortlessly cool, we get to live out our lifelong dream of wearing sweatpants to work, and if you’re doing it right, can look both smart and stylish, too.
So, in the spirit of doing it right, the American Tall team has curated a list of tall men’s streetwear pieces that should be in your rotation year-round.
Men’s Tall Athletic Stripe Pants
American Tall’s Men’s Athletic Stripe Pants pay homage to those classic Adidas three-stripe tear-aways that appeared in all the 90’s hip hop videos, but with modern upgrades for the modern tall man.
The stripe running along the side is iconic to athletic training pants, a no-brainer inclusion. The tear-away construction is better left in the past, but we’ve kept those ankle zippers in case you need to quickly switch to shorts underneath. In terms of modern touches, these tall men’s athletic pants feature 100% poly double-knit material, drawstrings, side seam pockets, and are light-weight, quick-drying, and highly breathable.
Men's Tall Tapered-Fit Light-Weight Athletic Pants
For something that’s a little less athletic, American Tall’s Tapered-Fit Light-Weight Athletic Pants are the choice for guys who need something functional, yet streetwear fashionable.
The tapered fit keeps your ankles and legs warm, shows off your long legs, and best of all, provides clear views of your sneaker game (if you’re rocking streetwear, we assume you’ve got to be a sneakerhead, too).
These tall men’s athletic pants have all the features you’d want from your everyday pants – inner drawstring, zippered side seam pockets, and ankle zips – all in one neat, engineered-for-movement package.
With colors like navy or black, these streetwear pants can go with anything, so as N.W.A. and Dr. Dre once said, ‘express yourself.’ Considering its urban feel at heart, however, we’re impartial to a nicely fitted tall crewneck sweater, a loud pair of kicks, and a small understated watch (because small watches are the real deal these days).
Men’s Tall Sweater Hoodies
Should you wear a hoodie, or a sweater?
Why not both?
American Tall’s sweater hoodies are based on a simple concept of taking one tall men’s wardrobe staple and combining it with another. The results speak for themselves:
That’s a pretty damn nice looking top, right?
With a 65% polyester, 35% cotton construction, the lightweight, soft and stretchy fabric means it feels as good as it looks. Our sweater hoodie hybrid has sleeve length to cover arms as long as yours, a hood to keep things low-key, a three button neckline, and side vents to keep the breeze flowing. The almost tee-like material makes these tall sweater hoodies a natural fit flying solo in the summer, or amongst your hundreds of layers in the winter.
