There are many men who sport tall, slim builds today. However great they are in number, though, shopping for clothing tends to be a frustrating experience for these men. Fashion tends to go by easily for others while they hunt and sort just to find pants that stay on slender waists without exposing half their legs. If this is the story of your life, you may benefit from a few of these fashion suggestions for men who are both tall and slim.
Look for it on the web.
If you can’t find it in the store, don’t lose hope. Retail stores tend to have a very limited inventory, and they don’t always have what you are looking for in stock. Try shopping from the comfort of your own home. This will allow you to try several different locations without ever leaving your chair. It is more likely that slim and other irregular sizes will be in stock because it will be shipped to you from their warehouse before anyone else can snatch it up off the rack at your local store. Also, don’t forget to search for the type of clothes you are looking for. Search engines can be very accommodating for finding the right store for you.
Browse the catalogs.
If you’re not much of an online shopper, there’s always the old fashioned catalog method. Many major retailers will distribute catalogs of their warehouse inventory upon request. Some charge for their catalogs while others are absolutely free of charge. By looking at the catalog, you can observe the latest fashions page by page while checking to see if they are actually available in tall or slim sizes. You may be pleasantly surprised to see that those jeans were available in slim after all.
Visit a specialty store.
Fashion for tall and slim males is actually a larger market that than it seems. Most cities are home to a few stores that cater to people with certain clothing needs. Check out the yellow pages or ask around to find a store in your area that specializes in fashion for the tall and slim. The sales staff in these stores is more than familiar with your needs and will gladly help you find the fashion you were looking for.
Alter your clothing.
If you’ve searched and searched and still have no success in finding the fashion that suits you best, there is always the option of alteration. Many retailers and specialty stores offer alterations to their customers at very reasonable prices and sometimes even for free when you purchase clothing from them. Those pants may have not been cut slim before you bought them, but they most certainly may be afterwards. If the store you are visiting does not offer alterations, you may wish to check the yellow pages and browse listings for local alteration shops.
When you are tall and slim, it may seem like a challenge to find the fashion that works best for you. However, you may be in luck if you follow the tips above. One of them just may change your outlook on shopping for clothing forever.
