Niche brands have done a great job with the basic clothes for tall slim men: T-shirts, button-ups, hoodies, jeans, chinos. It’s only the more specialized clothing that’s been missing, like tall slim athletic pants. But with their recent additions, American Tall now has us covered there too: Tall Slim Joggers, Training and Sweatpants for Tall Skinny Guys. They sent me a bunch of stuff to try out.
I’ll start with the training pants, which I’m wearing with one of their tall slim workout shirts in the photo below. As someone who’s played a lot of sports, I’ve also bought a lot of training pants. And it’s always been an infuriating experience. Finding anything long and slim enough was virtually impossible (I’m 6′7″ and 215 lbs). But now with their latest release, American Tall has our backs. Tall slim guys will appreciate these for basketball, volleyball, track, and just about any sport.
These tall slim athletic pants come in black and navy blue and in both relaxed and tapered fit. The relaxed fit makes for better warm-up pants as you can take them off without first removing your shoes (the ankle zipper helps with this). The tapered fit is perhaps trendier. I got the relaxed fit in large tall. If you normally wear an inseam of 38″ or 40″, you’ll want the extra tall. That’s right, they come in extra tall!
As far as material, it’s a mix of 85% polyester and 15% spandex. So there’s just a tiny bit of stretch. The fabric is light-weight yet feels strong. I also found it keeps it’s form nicely so it doesn’t over accentuate my skinny legs 🙂
Now on to the tall slim sweatpants for tall skinny guys. These can be worn in the same ways as the training pants. But they also make for comfortable pants for just hanging out or even as tall slim pajama pants for tall skinny guys (note: they also have actual pajama pants for tall slim men). They’re just about as classic of sweatpants as you can get: cuffs, drawstring, and pockets. The material is 70% cotton and 30% polyester and the colors available right now are grey, charcoal, black, and navy blue. The sizing is the same as for the tall slim training pants.
Very similar to the sweatpants are the tall slim joggers for tall skinny guys. They’re somewhat more stylish via extra stitching and some handy zippered pockets and a back pocket too. They’re made of the same material as the tall slim sweatpants and are available in black and charcoal.
These are just some of the new items American Tall has added to their collection. To see what else is new, check out their new arrivals section. The founders are working virtually around the clock to build the most comprehensive collection of tall slim men’s clothes on the planet. Let’s cheer them on!
My 16 year old is 6′ 1 1/4″ and weighs 120 lbs. He is a broomstick and I cannot find pants long and skinny enough for him. Do you have or know of somewhere for his size?
The options I mention on this page are the best I know of…
Hello i’m looking for a jogging pants for my son he is 14 years old and he’s about 5’11 and his waist is 29 . He is very slim . It’s very hard for me to fine his waist size and his length size. I need help finding pants for his size. Thank you
Hi FA, definitely check out the recommended tall slim sweat pants on this page, they are quite good.
My son 15 yr old and he is 6’4” (135lb). When he was shorter (ha!) we started with American Eagle. You can order “tall” pants online – I believe only online. We always have trouble with the waist fitting but we’re able to get by with the 30” x 36” if he wore a belt. ProblemI found, however, is that the inseam was not always 36”. Often it was shorter. Also, keep in mind people carry their height differently – long torso vs long legs. Another store that I just purchased jeans and khakis from is The Buckle. They actually have quite a large selection online. They had many different styles, cuts and colors and were affordable. We purchased from the “Jake” line. My son really wants adidas-type joggers and I have yet to find those. Good Luck! The struggle is real!!!
We’re on the hunt for 29″ x 36″ for a 15 year old who carries all his height in his legs. I just order some from J C Penney (jeans & khakis) but would also love tall athletic pants that don’t swallow him in the waist. This is new territory as I’m only 5’4″!
We just ordered tall athletic pants online from Old Navy. My 15 year-old son is 6’4″ – (long legs) – and 140. The medium tall were actually tight on his super-skinny calves, so we had to go with the large tall and use the draw string on the waist. Haven’t washed them yet – so we’ll see. We have had luck at Buckle for jeans (more $ than I like to spend because he is still growing,) but the best deal we got was at Hollister. They have skinny jeans in 36″ lengths – so the fit is about “regular” on my skinny kid. Right now they are on sale for $25 (free shipping), but we’ve got them as cheap as $20. If you sort by 36″ length they will show you the styles available. I think 30″ waist is the smallest available in the 36″ inch length, but it worked for my son because he wore them a little lower. Washed them many times and had minimal shrinkage.
Certain styles of adidas ran taller and we actually found an adidas medium-tall on-line that worked well. For shirts, we can get away with “long-line” styles at H&M or Hollister.
29×36 is the exact size I need for my grandson. I ordered 30×36. I hope it’s not too much of a difference around his waist. #fingerscrossed
Same here! 29 waist and 35 length! Where did you guys say? Buckle? He will only wear athletic pants/joggers
Mosel 936 Slim Fit Cowboy Cut Jean’s in many colors, starting at 25 inch waist and up to 36 inch inseam
Same boat – 13 yo, 6’2″ 125 lbs (clearly ate too many wheaties). He likes only adidas tapered athletic pants but they are sold out of all Tall sizes. Any suggestions or alternatives?
My teen son was like that too – 6′ 6″ and 160. Believe it or not, GOODFELLOW by Target makes jeans up to 34″ length with a 30″ waist or even less, and the “Skinny” version is really skinny! They are cheap too. Only online… hope that helps
I need white joggers in a medium tall. Iam having no luck.
Does American Tall have a size guide that includes leg length?
I think human leg length is kinda tricky to measure. One way is to pull a book up to the pubic bone with one edge against a wall and then mark it (sometimes called inseam length I think…). This is sometimes done for bike fitting. But I don’t know of any clothing companies (including American Tall) that have fitting guides based off of anatomical leg measurements.
Our 17 year old is 6’7’’ and rail thin.
And yes he plays basketball at least 5 days a week. He is on his college’s team and lives in sports wear. But guess what? Fall those brands that endorse actual basketball players don’t design clothes for actual basketball players. I have searched high and low to find track pants with a 37 inch inseam. We live in Canada , it’s cold in winter and pants are a must. It’s so frustrating watching active wear brands using professional athletes to promote their clothing but the clothes actualy don’t fit those same athletes .
I also can’t stand to see tall NBA players promoting cars that are too small!
Thanks for the list – big fan of American Tall’s sweatpants myself 🙂
Glad you like it, Rued. I didn’t keep your link in the comment as the pages are competing, hope you understand 🙂
My son is 15 and is just about 6′ 3″ and requires a 36 inseam. He is a competitive hockey goaltender and his waist is 30. I can’t find athletic pants tall enough. I came across the attached pic but I couldn’t figure out how to get more information on these pants. Can you help?
Trying to find these have been so painful. We would be happy to be a rep of some kind if they fit him.
We live in Alberta, Canada and there are lots of tall teenage boys out here.
Thank you for your time.
Here’s the exact link to the tall slim men’s athletic pants
Problem you never have have slim tall smalls available, you need to increase your orders when you are constantly sold out! Basic 101 marketing! These Kids are are not yet men they are rail thin and over 6’ with 36” inseams 26”-28” waists, come on get with the program and start out fitting tall slim youths!
My 14 year old is 6’ and needs a 28 inch waist. We have been happy with Lululemon men’s pants as certain styles allow you to choose waist size and length size. Very pricey for a still-growing boy, but well worth it in style and quality. And it’s so nice not watching them constantly yank their pants up while walking around.
I live in Ontario Canada, I am a woman size 12 with 38″ INSEAM.
Do you have anything that would look good on mel
Tall.Life doesn’t actually sell any clothes. Do check out American Tall’s women’s collection though, it’s growing fast.
