How Much Longer Are Tall Tees?

Find out everything you need to know about tall tees and how to buy one for yourself

If you’ve been to the clothing store recently, there’s a chance that you may have come across a section of “Tall” tees.

This is something you may not have seen when shopping in the past, but it’s a section in most clothing stores today.

So, what are they?

Basically, a tall tee is a tee made for taller people. Most of the time, taller individuals have a much harder time finding clothes compared to average-sized people. And to make sure everyone finds something that fits, feels comfortable, and looks great, many brands have started offering a selection of tall t-shirts.

While these tees are longer than your usual shirts, some people aren’t sure how much longer they are and whether or not they should be shopping in this section.

In this article, we’ll answer all of those questions and more.

And by the end, you’ll have a crystal-clear picture of what these tees are and how to buy one for yourself!

How Much Longer Are Tall Tees Than Regular Tees?

A tall tee is basically a shirt with extra torso length. Unlike plus-size or “big” tees, these shirts aren’t wider than your average shirt. These tees are meant to cater to taller individuals that aren’t plus-sized and have a hard time finding shirts that fit properly.

When shopping, it may be confusing as these shirts usually come in “Small Tall”, “Medium Tall”, and “Large Tall” sizes. Typically, these sizes will be about the same width as regular sizes, with the only difference being a little more torso length.

So, how much longer are tall tees?

Well, that can be hard to answer. Every brand and manufacturer has its own sizing, so some tall tees may be longer than others. However, it’s safe to assume that most of the tall tees you’ll find in clothing stores will be between 3-5 inches longer than normal tees.

How Do I Know If I Need a Tall Tee?

If you’ve been having a hard time finding tees that fit you properly when shopping, you might need to switch to tall tees. As the name suggests, these shirts are designed for taller individuals. Similar to plus-sized and “big” clothing sizes, these tees are designed to fit people that typically can’t find the right size shirts for their height.

That said, you don’t have to be tall to wear a tall tee. Nowadays, the “oversized” look is gaining a lot of traction. This style usually has people wearing a loose-fitting or baggy top with tight or baggy jeans. So, there are many people that would usually buy normal-sized options making the switch to tall tees.

For example, there are many skaters and people in the hip-hop scene shopping in these sections, along with taller individuals.

At the end of the day, you should know what’s best for your body and style. So, if you think that tall tees at the store might fit you better than the normal options, it might be time for you to make the switch.

How to Buy the Right Tall Tee

Before you start panicking when choosing the size of tall shirt that you need, rest assured that the sizes aren’t that complicated. In fact, the sizes of tall tees are exactly the same as regular tees, the only difference being the length.

So, for example, if you usually fit into a size medium but the regular medium is still too short for you, you can switch to a tall medium. These shirts will fall on your body the same way as a normal shirt, but they will be a bit longer.

Remember, one of the best ways to elevate your style is to make sure your clothes fit. One of the biggest mistakes that men make when building their wardrobes is buying ill-fitting clothes. So, if you aren’t sure which tall tee to buy for yourself, try referring to the sizing guide.

And if you don’t have your own measurements to compare with the sizing guide, try visiting a store with tall tees and trying one on yourself. That way, you get to see exactly how the clothes fit you and whether or not you have the right size.
