The suffering is over The Suffering Is Over: Five Style Guidelines for Thin, Tall Guys

When I was a kid I was by far the largest child in every class, beginning in kindergarten and going through 12th grade. Every summer, we could count on two things: the excruciating Phoenix heat, and that I would have a growth spurt and need to replace everything in my closet long before it was time for back-to-school-shopping. At some point, I was above all of my family members, including my siblings, parents and teachers, as well as every other kid who lived on my block. I soared into the sky like a rocket. I wasn’t a full-on athlete and even though I didn’t have the bulk of a tall kid, this didn’t mean I didn’t have to make frequent visits into”the “husky boys” department, where the only thing that mattered was my shirts were covering my stomach, and the pants weren’t making Urkel proud.

In contrast to other tall, thin men, I felt nearly as athletic as I was. Therefore, when the inevitable basketball-related question was asked I was able to declare that I had played. In the past it was my favorite sport. My basketball jersey that was loose fitting became my signature. I wore it not only because I enjoyed the game but also because it was large enough to cover the entirety of my slim frame, and it did not matter if it was an exact fitting. I had thin, long arms and a wide wing that made smiles on the faces of my coaches, but were also painful reminders that outside the court, the tall, skinny, men had a limited amount of options in terms of clothing options.

I was just 18 and a freshman in college and I recognized that I wouldn’t wear a basketball uniform for the rest of my life. There were just too many social occasions including photos, girls, as well as other activities that demanded the appearance of a different one. Before I could start an entirely new lifestyle as a stylish tall man I had determine my personal design and locate clothes that would fit my body shape. It’s much easier than it actually was. It’s true that males who are taller than the mall are often an extension of groovy teenage boy clothes I wore in my youth. There’s nothing particularly trendy. Nothing particularly youthful. Mostly “dad-type” working pants. A baggy suit coat. Tee shirts that were not long enough to accommodate my frame but floated across my body. My roommates would feel poor for my situation and encouraged me to gain weight in the gym to ensure that I had at the very least a decent shirt for parties.

The idea of putting on muscle was an overwhelming task, and might take some time. I needed clothes that was comfortable and stylish today. I was feeling a bit disappointed, but I was on a quest. I promised myself that I would discover fashionable clothes that would make me feel happy about myself. I was looking for tall and thin men on campus, and observed their fashion choices. A few were as me, covered in baggy clothing. Some were stylish and inspirational. I was brave enough to inquire where they purchased their clothes. The brothers were real. I did not just learn how to shop, but I also discovered how to shop to fit my body. Through the years I’ve learned some essential style tricks which I’m delighted to pass on to you today since I am aware of your struggles. Be assured that the struggle is gone. You can find the perfect size, the correct fashion. Here’s how to achieve it:

1. Stop wearing loose clothes

It’s not a big deal, but sometimes I need to remind people. Do not wear basketball jerseys that are loose even if you’re on the court. Do not try to cover your figure by wearing loose clothes. It’s not going to make a difference. It’s just going to make you look slimmer or appear as if you’ve took someone else’s clothes. Do not wear baggy jeans, loose fitting tops or bulky jackets. A baggy pair of jeans won’t flatter your body and they can make you look like a blob. Big jackets create an appearance of adolescence. The clothes you wear must be shaped and tapered. The tall and thin men need more length, but they need the appropriate length and width. Proper proportion is crucial.

2. Layer Not bulk

You’re looking for clean lines and harmony. Begin with a good T-shirt. Pick a shirt made of soft, breathable material such as Lycocell. Select a well-fitting men’s shirt with shoulder pads and chest pockets to wear over it. When the weather gets cooler and you get cooler, you can wear an open-front cardigan. In colder months be sure not to cover your thinness by wearing Michelin man-sized coats. You don’t want to make anybody a laugh after remove it. Layer the look as you did above, and then finish with a well-fitting coat or jacket.

3. Skinny Guy – Slim Fit

A pant that is too thin can result in the well-known “bean pole.” Make sure it’s slim-cut. The more formal your event is, the more tailored the style will be. It is possible to take your button-down tops to a tailor in order to make them look more comfortably. A skilled tailor can offer you a tailored look at only a small amount. The suit jacket should not be too loose or have short sleeves. Be sure that your shoulders have the proper size. Do not be afraid of a small amount of padding in your shoulders. You’ll want to appear proportional and sturdy.

Naturally, if you purchase an online purchase and find the perfect fit, you should buy many pairs if you are able to. There is nothing better than a great pair of denim. Ever.

5. Trick the Eye and tall, skinny,

Find tall mens t-shirts that have horizontal stripes and plaids that make your chest appear larger. Patterns can create movement , making the space they fill appear bigger.

If you’re wearing boots that are high such as Doc Martin, or Doc Martin, don’t cover the tops of your boots. You can cuff your pants to just the tip of your boot, to break those horizontal lines.
