If you’re really tall, have a long torso, or both, you probably already know how very hard it is to find undershirts that are truly long enough to stay tucked.
Although many of the undershirt companies are starting to make their undershirts longer, they are still not long enough for very tall people.
Here’s an email from a reader who is looking for a tall man’s ribbed tank top (Large Tall), but so far has come up empty.
I don’t know how to find what I am looking for, even with all the searches I have done on the internet.
I am 6′ 6″ with my torso being taller than most people my height… my legs are not that long and I can buy pants just about anywhere, but not my shirts…and undershirts are no exception.
I have loved these [Towncraft 50/50 ribbed] tanks for many many years, and they are getting very thin.
My daughters, who are grown and have kids of their own, remember wearing my tanks for night gowns back when they were in grade school, and remember them being tied up because they were too big for them back then.
I just took the one I am wearing off, and lay it on the floor….the tape measure shows 36″ from shoulder to the bottom of the shirt. I think I have some new ones that are 32″, and they always come un-tucked.
And about the 50/50 blend…? that is just what these are, and I like them so much, I just thought someone would still be making them…as 60/40 would probably be acceptable too. It’s just the stupid length…and not too big around.
If I have to buy XXXL to get the length, I guess I could have them taken in… as long as they are long enough.
Can You Help?
I’ve searched my archives and haven’t come up with anything I can fully recommend. The only two tall tank tops I can locate are 100% cotton include:
Do you know of any cotton-blend or non-cotton ribbed tank tops that specifically come in tall (maybe large tall)??
If so, tell me about it in the comments below.
