How has your style changed over the last few years? If you’re anything like us, you’ve embraced comfortable clothing as the work-from-home lifestyle has become more prevalent. Cozy sweats, men’s tall joggers, and other Zoom meeting staples have become much more popular.
Whether you’ve gone through a style renaissance or a style crisis over the last two years, one thing has been constant – athletic and lounge pants have become much more accepted as streetwear. As long as you’re picking clothes for your body type and sticking to styles that make you happy, there’s no wrong way to dress.
However, when you’re a taller dude, dressing for your body type in a way that makes you happy can be a major challenge. After all, what good is a pair of joggers if they climb up your calf every time you sit down?
We’re here to debunk a few myths about one of our favorite clothing items – the tall men’s jogger. Then, we’ll show you how to style these comfortable yet flattering pants into outfits you can wear on errands, dates, and even to the office.
How are tall men's joggers supposed to fit?
First, let’s get this out of the way – yes, the fit on your men’s tall joggers matters. These lounge pants should sit comfortably on your hips and taper down gently to the ankle. They should not sit too high above the ankle, as it looks awkward and ill-fitting.
Unfortunately, many standard-sized joggers simply don’t fit guys that are a bit taller than average. They may feel fine through the hip and rise but end way above the ankle, making it look like your pants shrunk in the wash.
Many people believe that sweatpants are meant to be comfortable and don’t care much about how they look. However, with the advent of joggers designed with flattering cuts and more luxurious fabrics, there’s no need to settle for athleisure that doesn’t make you look as good as you feel. With joggers designed for taller people, you can get all the comfort and style in a pant designed for your frame.
Exploring our favorite joggers for tall people
At American Tall, our joggers for tall skinny guys are specifically designed to suit men that are longer and taller than average. Instead of squeezing into a standard XL and hoping for the best, we offer a few different style options in sizes up to 2XL Extra Tall – that’s a 40” inseam!
Here are some of our favorites.
Wearever Fleece Cargo Joggers for Tall Men
Our Wearever Fleece Cargo Joggers were added to our lineup recently and have already become an absolute wardrobe staple.
They’re available in four beautiful neutral shades: black, khaki, navy, and our newest color, port. They have a flattering ruched waistband with a drawstring to ensure the perfect fit and come with two parallel pockets along the upper leg that can fit everything you need on the go. The gradual taper down to the ankle ends in a relaxed cuff that hits at just the right spot. We love them styled with a knitted cardigan and tee for a casual yet put-together everyday look.
Wearever Fleece Joggers for Tall Men
Want to skip the pockets? Our standard fleece joggers have the same neat silhouette as our cargo joggers but are designed with complimentary diagonal seams along the leg instead of pockets. They’re available in ten different flattering shades, ranging from port to bright white. Pair them with a Henley and a denim jacket for fall or a simple tee for a day at home.
AT Performance Tapered French Terry Joggers for Tall Men
Sure, these joggers may be made from performance fabric, but that doesn’t mean they can only be worn while you’re sweating. Their sleek and convenient pockets and French Terry interior make them a great everyday style find. They look great paired with a matching hoodie for a super-stylish take on athleisure.
Wearever French Terry Tall Joggers
We love French Terry so much we made it the basis of two different styles of joggers. The Wearever French Terry tall jogger is one of our most popular styles, and we recently added a new colorway – midnight blue. We think it looks excellent with stark neutrals like white or black. Pairing it with a black denim jacket or simple white tee really makes the color pop.
Can joggers be worn to work?
We’d be remiss if we didn’t answer the questions that are on everyone’s mind – can you wear joggers to work? What are the best tall men’s joggers to wear with a work outfit?
The truth is, it really depends on where you work. A sleek, tapered pair of joggers in black look pulled together, especially when paired with a button-up shirt. However, if you only have lighter joggers, those are best left at home. Joggers in shades of white, grey, or brighter colors like red can look too casual for the office.
