When I was born, the doctor told my father that I’d be at least 1 head taller than him. Fast-forward 18-years, and I was 6’8 – the doctor was right.
Being tall has brought me many advantages, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. It has served me well in various facets of life, from sports to work. However, it also presents its fair share of challenges in a world that isn’t necessarily built to cater to taller people – including fashion.
Shopping has been a minefield
From my late teens, shopping for clothes has always been a minefield. Tops would usually be the right width, but the body and sleeve length were always too short. Sometimes the latter would be spot on, but the width would be off. And let’s not even get started on trousers and the touchy subject of ankle swingers. It’s not a good look for anyone!
Fashion for tall men
We all know that social pressures and expectations come with fashion, and this applies to tall people too. As I grew older, I realised that tall men have always drawn the short straw when it comes to clothing. There’s very little out there, with big brands having a limited range and niche outfitters using outdated styles that even my grandfather would cringe at.
Time for a change
It’s time for a change, and all tall men need to stand up and be counted. That’s why I’m proud to introduce Tall Togs – the global leader in tall men’s clothing, catering to gents measuring 6 ft 2 and above.
Tall Togs is a collaboration founded by clothing industry experts and me – a tall guy on a mission. Finally, tall men can find clothing that caters to their unique physique, style, and comfort. It’s time to change the narrative, and with Tall Togs, we are leading the way.
