Sweatpants are an essential item in every guy’s wardrobe. They were originally designed as athletic pants by a French designer in the 1920s before making their way into streetwear styles in the 1980s, when they became popular in hip hop culture and amongst college students.
Over the last few years, as the world shifted to remote work and stayed inside more, we’ve seen a resurgence of the athleisure and loungewear trends that’s expected to last for years to come. Sweatpants aren’t just for lounging around anymore – there are plenty of ways you can wear your sweatpants that are more stylish than sloppy.
When you’re a tall guy, finding sweatpants that fit your long legs can be a struggle, with inseams that are way too short and styles that are awkwardly baggy. That's where we come in. All of our sweatpants are crafted specifically for tall guys between 6’3” and 7’1” with up to a 40” inseam so you can rock the athleisure trend with confidence. We rounded up some of the best men’s sweatpants for tall guys that you’ll want to add to your collection.
LJ&S Pigment-Dyed Sweatpants
These men’s tall cotton sweatpants from our LongJohn & Sons brand are super comfy yet ultra-durable, so you can wear them everywhere from your next camping trip to laidback Netflix nights at home. We sourced a premium 100% cotton that’s been pigment-dyed for that perfectly lived-in look and feel right from the get-go. They have a relaxed fit with elastic bottoms and two back welt pockets and pair beautifully with our matching Pigment-Dyed Hoodie.
80-20 Fleece Elastic-Bottom Sweatpants
Pick up a pair of sweats that look good and feel even better. These elastic-bottom sweatpants are made of our signature 80-20 Fleece that’s super soft and long-lasting and look just as good on the streets as they do on the couch. They have a traditional fit that’s relaxed without being too baggy, so you can throw them on with a slub tee to hang out on the couch or pair them with a fleece crewneck sweatshirt to wear out and about.
80-20 Fleece Open-Bottom Sweatpants
A looser version of our elastic-bottom sweatpants, this pair of open-bottom sweatpants is best for lazy days spent at home. After a long day at work, you deserve to kick back and relax in the comfiest loungewear, and these sweatpants fit the bill. They're constructed with an adjustable elastic waistband, and made of our cozy 80-20 Fleece with fuller open bottoms that will go all the way past your ankles. Throw them on with a hoodie and tee to play video games all day or hang out on the couch and watch Netflix.
80-20 French Terry Sweatpants
When you’re looking for something a little lighter than fleece, reach for our 80-20 French Terry Sweatpants. French Terry is a midweight knit fabric that’s lighter than our cozy fleece but still provides plenty of warmth so you can wear your sweatpants year-round. The regular fit is not too slim but not too loose so they’re comfy enough to wear around the house and stylish enough to wear while you run errands. Pair them with a slim-fit tee and a flannel shirt or a zip-up hoodie.
What size sweatpants should you get?
Picked out the pair (or pairs) you want and trying to figure out what size to get? We’re here to help. Our Size Chart is a great tool for finding your perfect fit! Measure around your natural waistline while keeping the measuring tape a little loose to find the size you need, then decide on the inseam. Our Tall sizes are great for guys between 6’3” and 6’7” and our Extra Tall sizes are perfect if you’re over 6’8”.
