I agree that you should take your son into the store to try on which style he likes, but you'll have to order online, since they don't carry the tall sizes in the store.
All is not completely lost however, as in recent years their have been some European brands to open up shop in America that provide some alternatives to Kohls and JC Penny. If you want to be a baller, a shot caller, then these are the brands available at your local mall that you should check out:. This means string beans have a much larger variety to choose their wardrobe from. Business pants, sweaters and cardigans and jackets from Banana Republic all are top of their class in terms of professionalism and class.
Keep your eyes open for sales. With up-to-date styles at insanely affordable prices Uniqlo always has what you need, whether it be for lounging around the home or going into the office. Uniqlo was one of the first international clothing retailers to offer stretch jeans for men.
The material is light and dries sweat insanely fast. Excellent bang for your buck. Zara is similar to Banana Republic in they are at the leading edge in terms of style, offering and even trend setting with sometimes outright crazy fashion.
Their suits can be either flamboyant or conservative but with a nice cut. The picture to the right was taken in Zara dressing room. The suite was quite large which made room for more upper body bulk, although the pants were a little tight. The selection for form fitting pants, shirts and button up shirts is endless.
If Banana Republic is the go-to for the office then Zara is the go-to for the lounge bar or night club. Downsides to Zara include the fact that sometimes their cut is just a bit too slim. Another downside to Zara is the lack of retail shops across America. Bountiful in Asia and Europe you may have to travel a bit to get your Zara fix. If you do we guarantee it will be well worth it. So there you have it, 4 relatively affordable clothing retailers that offer a nice balance of style and fit, especially for the taller lankier gentlemen out there.
If you are willing to shop online then there is a whole new world of brands that suit skinny body types and skinny-athletic body types extremely well. If a brand does not have a fitting guide, or the fitting guide is simply torso length for shirts for example, avoid them like the plague as this will surely result in a baggy, ill-fitting parachute of a shirt. The following brands are designed for active lifestyles and beautifully marry athleisure with casual Friday vibes for some of the most versatile wardrobes imaginable.
Rhone uses state of the art materials designed to keep you cool, dry, and comfortable. Other major brands have sweet materials, like Adidas and Nike, but their styling is always a bit flashy, a bit gym-specific.
Rhone makes more conservative, logo-free clothes both for the gym and for the street. Some of our favorite items are their Swift Shorts. These are perfect for running to the grocery store in comfort and or directly to the gym.
The cut is shorter, so you can show off your quad work. They also stretch and have a built in liner to keep your junk in place. Of course there is a built in zipper pocket as well to keep your iPhone or keys. Gym shorts without pockets are an absolute joke to be avoided at all cost. Another awesome product are the Rhone Commuter Pants.
Proof their shirts and pants will look good are in the model details on each product page. Rhone spends up to 4X more on materials than other brands which makes them feel good and last. With clothing, like many things, you really do get what you pay for, which makes a Rhone a bargain in the long-run.
If you are looking for a little more Cali style in your active wear then Vuor Clothing may also be worth checking out. Based in Encinitas California the brand has become popular for their stretchable, breathable, surfer-inspired shorts. They have literally dozens of different varieties of shorts for all occasions including swimming, surfing, hiking, working out, running or just hanging out.
My son also likes to wear basketball shorts almost year round, and those have elastic waist so they are good. I got them cheap at Nordstrom Rack! Like 'anonymous', I have used Gap pants he prefers the chinos instead of jeans for my very tall and skinny son.
He's currently 6'5", lbs. I agree that you should take your son into the store to try on which style he likes, but you'll have to order online, since they don't carry the tall sizes in the store.
The washes were trendy but not too expensive. Really great quality too! Online they carry specialty sizes. I think we need to start a clothing swap for tall young men with long legs: I also have a 13 year old boy who is 5' 9" and is pretty skinny. Up until a couple inches ago, he was wearing slim fit Gap with the elastic pulled pretty tight. But they are too short now The best sites will let you narrow the selection by sizes they have in stock eg 28W x 34L , which speeds things up.
Their 28W x 34L fits my boy. If those are still too big, try Hot Topic. I buy Gramicci pants for my son. At first I bought him women's didn't tell him as the design is gender neutral and the women's are slimmer. They also can be ordered by length and have elastic and a cinch belt.
