Cleaner Brighter has expanded their tall mens clothing lineup for summer with a new polo and a logo t-shirt and they sent me some samples to try out.
Baggy shirts, besides appearing sloppy, often accentuate a slim build. That is why Cleaner Brighter aims for a tighter fit. They achieve this by incorporating 5% spandex in their shirts and setting the dimensions slightly small so that the shirts contour to the wearer’s body.
My measurements match up almost exactly with those suggested for the large tall size. However, I found the large tall to be a tad too tight for me so went up to the x-large tall, but I chalk this up more to my own personal taste. As far as lengths go, they nailed it, both in the arms and the torso. Beyond the fit, the quality of the shirts in general feels excellent and they hang quite nicely.
I’ve been curious as to why this company has named themselves Cleaner Brighter, rather than something tall specific. As it turns out, they plan to expand into other hard to fit niches and thus needed to parallel this with a similarly broad name, and one that brought out the quality of both the material and fit of their clothes. The next niche they plan to tackle is tall women.
As far as men’s wear go, they will continue to expand their lineup, covering the popular classic articles first, walking before they run essentially. But I’m pleased to hear trim fit jackets are on the radar. Check out more of Cleaner Brighter’s clothes in this post. What would you most like to see next?
