Rugged Sweaters for Tall Slim Men

More so than other clothes, sweaters are a problem for us tall slim men. This is because they tend to shrink more than other types of clothing. If you wash and dry a sweater and a t-shirt, the sweater is probably going to shrink quite a bit more. I figure this is why I’ve never been much of a sweater fan. Popular brands have sold tall options for quite some time. To get enough length I order large tall or even extra large tall. But this is baggy for my tall slim frame. And then I wash it and it becomes too short too. And oddly, it’s still too baggy.

In the past I’ve actually resorted to a stretching method where I put a sweater on a hanger and clamp boards to the bottom of the sweater. This stretches it in the length more than the girth. Getting it wet helps. But it’s a pain to set up. And it just seems wrong that we have to resort to such mid-evil tactics on our sweaters.

But we don’t have to anymore! This clothing problem, like so many others we tall slim men face, has been solved by LJ&S. They offer tall and even EXTRA tall from medium to 2XL. I’m 6’7 and 215 lbs with a somewhat long torso, and their large tall fit me best. If I planned on ever putting it in the drier, I might have gone with extra tall.

As you can see, the fit is excellent on me. Note that in the front shot I’m wearing the sweater a bit higher than in the back and side view, just to show how it can sit differently depending on your preference.

Besides the fit, I really like the sweater in general. It has an exceptionally rugged look and feel to it, which is exactly what LJ&S is going for. The contrasting knit patterns across the neck, shoulders, and cuffs give it a very authentic, tried a true appearance. The 100% cotton is sturdy and should last a long time.

Now I can finally look forward to sweater weather!
