Finding Clothes That Fit Tall Men
I’m 6’ 4” tall and 13 and half stone. This means I’m by no means a ‘rake’ but neither am I ‘built’, and as such I find it very difficult to find clothes that fit me perfectly due to my height.I find this to be a problem particularly with shirts, t-shirts and jumpers.
If I get medium/smalls the clothes fit well but are far too short in length. If I get the Large/XL sizes they are long enough but are far too baggy and ‘hang’ off me.Has anyone who suffers similar problems found a solution to this? Are there any brands whose clothes happen to be cut well for the taller man? Or any other advice for the taller man?

Well I am 6 ft 1 and am not built really. However I have found that chunky knit cardigans seem to work well because they already accentuate broad shoulders and due to their chunkiness, they look fine even if they are baggy. Also think that the hollister range is quite tight fitting so you could get away with buying a large or x large and still look fine.
