Hoodies have to be just about the most versatile clothing, especially the pocketed, zip-up variety. When you want to be warm and dry, the hood and pockets are ideal. When you want to cool off, just unzip. The hood can also keep mosquitoes at bay. And in the event you wish to remain inconspicuous, something tall people suck at, the hoodie is there for you. If your reason for hiding makes you nervous, you can always chew on the strings. And when you tire of all this, the hood can even become a kind of makeshift pillow.
But hoodies for tall skinny guys can be hard to find. Until recently, that is! In just the last few years, three different niche tall men’s clothing companies have launched their own hoodies for tall skinny guys. I’ve tried out hoodies from all of them. For your reference, I’m 6′7″ and 215 lbs. My thoughts are below.
American Tall offers the most number of sizes of tall men’s hoodies out there. They have small tall all the way up to 3XL tall. So these can be hoodies for tall skinny guys as well as big and tall guys. And, on top of that, they also do extra tall! The large extra tall fits me best. Currently these hoodies are available in black, light grey, and dark grey, though likely they will be adding more colors. The material is 65% cotton and 35% polyester. The style is pretty much as classic as you can get and the quality is excellent. The standard price is $55. I reviewed their hoodies in a bit more detail here: American Tall Hoodie Review
Tall Slim Tees, the maker of the ultimate t-shirt for tall skinny guys, also does hoodies. And these too will fit the tall skinny among us as they start at small tall. I prefer the medium tall. These hoodies are made 100% from cotton with the inside having a fleecy kind of feel. They are somewhat thicker than typical hoodies particularly in the double layered hood, giving them a high quality feel. They come in a wide variety of colors to match just about any outfit. The standard price for these tall men’s hoodies is $50.
This third option is a really interesting one. Navas is based out of Vancouver Canada, and they actually manufacture their clothes there! Besides having tall friendly sizes, their hoodies in general are some of the most original out there. They have fascinating textures, unique stitch lines, and numerous clever pockets. They also use some really interesting materials, including bamboo. And some of their hoodies are actually more like spring or fall tall men’s jackets. Their sizing isn’t as comprehensive as that of the two brands above, but I nevertheless found the XLT an excellent fit for my tall slim build. The local manufacturing, premium materials, and varied styles does add up though, so be prepared to pay somewhat more for these tall men’s hoodies.
Also great for us tall lassies to steal….
Thanks for hooking me up!
No problem, I’m enjoying mine too!
Left out again… I’m 6’8″ with a muscular build; everything for my height is too slim and all of the clothing for my build is too short…
It’s called slim because tall people tend to be skinnier, but it nevertheless has a range of sizes. The xl might work great for you: X-LARGE: 6’8″ – 7′ & 250 lbs. – 300 lbs.
Thank you!!! Just went to these sites and ordered 9 items for my tall, skinny sons! Finally! Now hoping it all fits perfectly!
My 18 year old nephew is about 6’3” and 145 pounds……I want to get a hoodie or shirt that fits him well. Help!!! Any ideas?
The tall slim hoodies on this page are the best options out there. Choose small tall or medium tall if you can!
Hi, I am glad to have come across your site! My 15 years old nephew is around 6’3” and according to his dad that is average tall- 6’ the size my nephew currently wears is 32-36 preferably in pants. My nephew also has sensory issues so finding sweats and joggers are important. You have pointed me in the right direction! So many thanks from the short uncle- 5’4.
okay but who the heck wants a zipper can i get just a regular hoodie?”
I believe all three of these companies have regular hoodies too.
