Whether you’re working out, hanging out or running around town, everyone needs a pair of joggers in their wardrobe. Although these pants were originally designed to be tall athletic joggers for running or working out, they’ve become increasingly popular in everyday fashion and streetwear styles with the rise of the athleisure trend.
The slim and tapered fit makes it easy to dress your joggers up or down. You can wear them with a coordinating sweatshirt for laidback days at home or with a button-up shirt and tailored coat – the options are endless when it comes to styling your tall joggers for men and women.
We rounded up some of the most commonly asked questions about this popular style and our favorite fits for tall men and women so you can rock this trend with confidence.
Who makes the best extra tall joggers?
There’s really no contest when it comes to who makes the best tall joggers for men and women. Here at American Tall, all of our styles are carefully crafted for tall men between 6’3” and 7’1” and tall women 5’9” to 6’6”. We don’t just extend the length, because having a good pair of joggers is so much more than that. Our joggers have proper proportions at every seam, from adjusted knee placement for your long legs to a classic tapered fit and larger pockets for larger hands.
What's the difference between joggers and sweatpants?
The difference between joggers and sweatpants comes down to fit and function. Joggers tend to have a slimmer fit and are more lightweight, whereas sweatpants are normally looser with a heavier fabric. Tall joggers for ladies and men are often the more stylish option that you can wear out of the house or to the gym while sweatpants are the pair you reach for when you’re hanging out at home.
How long should the inseam be?
Joggers typically end right at the ankle with elastic cuffs – but finding options with a long-enough inseam can be tough when you’re tall. You don’t want to end up looking like you’re wearing capris! Our joggers for men are available in Tall (34-37" inseam) and Extra Tall (38-40" inseam) and our joggers for women are also available in Tall (34-36" inseam) and Extra Tall (36-38" inseam) options.
What are the different fabric options?
There are a range of different fabrics used for joggers. At American Tall, we use only the finest carefully sourced fabrics including fleece, French terry and 100% cotton.
- Engineered Blend: Our tall athletic joggers, like our AT Performance Engineered Joggers, are made using the latest fabric technology, with a lightweight polyester that’s sweat-wicking and breathable.
- 80-20 French Terry: Made of 80% cotton and 20% polyester, our signature 80-20 French Terry fabric is ultra-comfy. It’s medium weight so you can wear your 80-20 French Terry Joggers all year round.
- 80-20 Fleece: Like our French Terry but with a brushed fuzzy interior, our 80-20 Fleece Joggers are great for colder weather. The fleece fabric is made of 80% cotton and 20% polyester and is super soft yet durable.
- Cotton: While most of our other jogger fabrics contain cotton, our LJ&S Pigment-Dyed Joggers are made of 100% cotton. Plus, the cotton has been pigment-dyed for that perfectly-lived-in look and feel.
How do I style my new tall joggers?
You've picked out your joggers, now it’s time to figure out how to style them. There are no wrong answers when it comes to what to wear with your new joggers! Wear them with a sweatshirt and sneakers for a laidback look or with a button-up shirt for a more put-together outfit. Layering is popular when it comes to the athleisure style – throw a tailored jacket, coat or blazer over top for the perfect blend of casual and cool.
