Default Collection of brands for tall, skinny guys

So I'm a tall, skinny guy myself (6'6" and 210 lbs.). I know the headache it is to shop for t-shirts that actually fit. I've noticed there are a lot of guys in my boat looking for a decent fitting t-shirt. I also noticed several people in these forums looking for tall t-shirt brands for printing and graphics. For all of those people, I thought you would find my experience of the last year to be useful. I've ordered tons of brands online and tried them all, so below is a collection of all the brands that offer decent shirts for tall, skinny guys. I'll include the ones that were bad also. Please add any brands you've found that fit well so we can make a solid collection of all of them. I'll order mine from best to worst.


Just recently got these and by far and away my favorite. Not many options just yet, but looks like they are pretty new with plans for more. These shirts didn't just add length, they fit great everywhere. Sizes don't come in tall or normal, they just have medium and large. But they are plenty tall. 50% polyester too so they feel nice and haven't shrunk after multiple washes. If they ever add more colors + long sleeve or hoodies, probably the only brand I will ever wear.


I got their shirt called the Legend V-neck in XL tall with a classic fit. I like most everything about it except the sleeves feel a little short/tight. Also I don't like that it has their eagle logo on the chest, even if it is small. This would also make printing on them a bit more complicated. Didn't notice any shrinking, material feels pretty soft and flexible.


I didn't see any options for tall sizes, but the XL I got felt longer than most standard sizes. That's just the way they made the shirt, it's called the 50/50 in the tag. Not as long as a tallslim tee or other shirts in tall sizes though. A little roomier than I would like in the chest and shoulders are too wide, but for a standard size offering, pretty nice. Slight, noticeable shrinking, but not much.

4. SONOMA (Kohl's) (

Since XL always seems a bit too roomy in the chest I went with a Large Tall size on this one. The fit was pretty good, but with the smaller chest came smaller shoulders and that didn't feel very comfortable. Length was good though. However, 100% cotton so noticeable shrinking after washes.

5. SIFR (

This is a shirt I ordered from Singapore actually, took forever to get here. It's called the Beanstalk Fit. The length is fantastic, but the sleeves are small and the fit is pretty tight. I suppose that style is pretty common in Asia so probably not that unexpected. Not many options in this particular fit and the international ordering could be complicated if you needed big bulk orders.


6. ALTUS (

I had high hopes when I discovered Altus, who bills their clothing as made for tall, lean men over 6'3". I got a t-shirt in XL tall size. I'm not sure who designed the dimensions over there, but the armholes seemed abnormally large. I read later on the site that is by design. They go way too low however. Also, for tall, skinny guys, you would want a smaller armhole, because you know, smaller arms, not very large/muscular. The overall shape doesn't drape well and the fit looks somewhat awkward. Comfortable enough to wear, but I never wear it. Ever. Don't know if it shrinks, never washed since never wore. I wouldn't go with this brand if you are in need of tall size shirts.


I found this shirt in a store for once, not online. It was at JC Penny in the big & tall section (two shelves). I got a large tall and the sleeves are too small while the chest is too large. It's a truly odd shape for a shirt. I don't know any big guys with proportions that could possibly fit it, let alone lean guys. I will note that I also picked up a hoodie by Foundry while I was there and it is one of my favorites. So not sure how they blew it on the t-shirt, but they did.

8. L.L. BEAN (

On the recommendation of several forums I got a t-shirt from LL Bean which was a huge mistake. Worst fitting one of the bunch. It advertised itself as "TrimFit" I believe was their term, which it says "slightly fitted" on the tag. Because of this I figured the XL tall would be the best choice. What a horrible fitting shirt this is. I couldn't believe it when I put it on. Still, I kept it and all other non-winners for the sake of research, and to take the pictures you're seeing. This brand was bad so stay away for tall, thin shirts.

OTHERS: Old Navy makes tall sizes, but they just add an inch to the length, so they fit like any standard shirt with a little more length. I heard the Mossimo brand at Target had good length, but they fit just like any other standard t-shirt. Also heard the same of a brand called Gildan and same deal. Truth be told, the only shirts I wear are tallslim tees and the American Eagle legends in tall size.

Hope this helps those who are looking!
