Yet another tall queer wardrobe question
March 22, 2019 7:26 AM   Subscribe

I really like a style of quirky print buttoned/collared shirts that have turned into a bit of a genderqueer cliche, like these femme "menswear" ones from Boden or these soft butch "womenswear" ones from Wildfang. (I don't mean Hawaiian shirts, or retro bowling shirts, or dad-casual shirts with footballs on them.) But whichever side of the store I'm shopping on, I need a tall size shirt, and the brands that sell this stuff don't seem to have tall sizes.

Prove me wrong! Who makes tall ones of these? Where should I look? What should I try?

Bonobos. I was in a Bonobos store a few weeks ago while my tall husband tried on some clothes and saw quite a few similarly patterned shirts, I’m not sure how the structure is, but they have some great patterns and length and tailoring options.

I haven't been shopping there in years but I remember in years past that Ted Baker shirts used to run pretty tall (I'm 6'5" about about 170 lbs. so this issue is very important to me as well).

Eddie Bauer has tall sizes in similar shirts, but at the moment I'm not seeing the interesting prints they had last year.

Gap has women's and men's tall sizes and in my experience the women's tall items anyway are pretty long usually. It looks like it's mostly solids /stripes/plaids right now and not a lot of other prints though. Here's a menswear floral short sleeve shirt though.

I am a Tall Nonbinary and I usually meet this need at ASOS.

You may also have some luck with my previous question.

Oh yes, ITheCosmos is right, ASOS has got you covered.

I'm a genderqueer cliche too, and I like Bugatchi shirts for this niche and they apparently make some talls.
