Where is the best place to go for tall men to get the best modern style tips? It’s a serious question with epic implications, but alas the answer is none other than the NBA, right? Think about it. The majority of players are not only tall, but they’re close to high fashion and can actually afford to buy the stuff. Furthermore, they can hire “stylists” or some hybrid-professional whose job it is to look after their MTV Cribs worth wardrobe.
1) What Brands Cater to Them?
In general, what brands cater to tall men? Levi’s has been accommodating tall men since Basketball teams were entirely composed of white people! In today’s cyber culture it’s wise to hop online and search around. There are many “new mainstream” labels to be found online. The only caveat is that for tall men it’s wise to try things on before purchasing. Good well, then Google your area and see what you can find nearby.
2) Tank Tops + Accessories
Obviously NBA players love tank tops and they look good in them. Most tall men do because they tend to be skinnier and slimmer. However, wearing a low tank top looks incredibly tacky unless there’s a little something. Either an undershirt with a flattering color, or perhaps a necklace but add something.
3) Simplify Denim
Denim is very kind to tall men, they all agree on that. Well, according to many NBA clothes managers it’s wise to keep it simple. There’s a lot of material going on, so if it’s decorate with this or that, too distressed or something even flashier than that it won’t usually go over well to the people down below.
4) Refuse if They Don’t Fit!
This is pretty straightforward. Don’t just shrug those high shoulders and go with it, refuse that and get some clothes that truly fit.
5) Proportionate Shoes
Tall guys have big feet, because if they didn’t they would fall over too much. That doesn’t mean your shows should be extra wide though. Try to find a proper middle ground where your shoes are only doing as much talking as they need to be.
6) Complimentary Patterns
Tall guys don’t look good in either thick stripes or large patterns. There is too much surface area. Instead, go for smaller pattern and thinner stripes that accentuate your shape.
7) No Gigantic Watches
Yes, basketball players love to sport bling, but these days most of them keep it pretty simple. In the same way huge shoes are off-putting, mega watches look extremely tacky as well.
8) Layers of Epic
Here’s the good news, tall guys look just as amazing in well-layered clothes as average guys. Plus, they are usually skinnier and can pull off more layers. It takes some practice, but layering is probably one of the most powerful weapons of style a tall guy can have in his arsenal. The only thing more power happens when you…
9) Get to Know a Tailor
Tailors are all around a good thing to have, no matter what size you are. However, regular dudes can get away with much more than a shorter or taller than average guy.
10) Gently Stretch Your Stature
At the end of the day it’s about stretching the look so it comes off as complimentary and natural for a tall stature. Don’t try to fit into a small world. Refuse clothes that aren’t right for you, and keep things proportionate.
