If you are a tall and slim man, we at Longshot Apparel understand the difficulty that you will have finding a shirt that fits your particular body shape. Many shirts made for tall men are also made for big men, leaving those with a slim fit body forced to wear shirts that are too big in the waist and sleeves that are too long. The Polo Ralph Lauren Gingham Sport Shirt is a sophisticated style casual shirt and comes in several sizes for the tall man, but they all have the same size chest and waist. Their shirts are as much as six inches larger in the waist area than our Longshot Gingham Sports Shirt with a 17-18 neck size and a 37.5-39 sleeve size. This leaves a lot of extra fabric that needs to be tucked in and the shirt will still look baggy. At Longshot, we tailor our shirts so the casual shirts tapers down and fityour body shape better. Do not waste your time looking at other shirts when you can be assured that Longshot Apparel will fit you right every time.
At Longshot Apparel we know how frustrating finding extended length clothing can be. The Leadon navy gingham cotton shirt from Longshot is different from typical big and tall clothing; it features our Tailored Taller fit without pleats for athletic builds, along with a generous collar height to reduce pulling. The front pocket, reinforced placket, fused collar and cuffs work together to flatter the tall slim man. Arms are available in two lengths including a 35.5-37 sleeve, and sizes range from 1L to 4L, including 17-18 neck.
The Gingham Sport Shirt from Polo Ralph Lauren is another option for men, although with the wide cut and center back pleat, this casual dress shirt is best suited to tall men who need extra room throughout the torso area. Because it is made overseas, the Polo Ralph Lauren shirt is priced lower than the US made Leadon from Longshot Apparel.
When you are looking for ready-to-wear American made shirts for tall slim men, be sure to shop at Longshot Apparel, where shipping is complimentary and returns are hassle-free.
At Longshot Apparel we know that finding great-fitting clothing for tall skinny men can be frustrating.

Sizing is based on two different arm options and the neck size. For example, a 37.5-39 sleeve length and a 16.5-17.5 neck equals a Longshot Apparel size 3L.
The Gingham Sport Shirt from Polo Ralph Lauren is a generous summer casual shirt for tall men who need the extra room of a wide-cut shirt. It is a great choice for husky guys who don’t like tailored shirts, and will appreciate the torso space from the center back pleat.

Last week the venerable New Yorker got into the "Made in the USA" conversation with an excellent piece from Patricia Marx. Of course at Longshot Apparel we love all the chatter around the topic since we believe products made in the USA are better. Late last month Diane Sawyer put in her two cents with a weeklong series on Made in America. Wired jumped in the same week with an article focusing on small businesses bucking the offshore trend. And yesterday, Newsweek weighed in with Made in the USA Gives Small Business an Edge. The party line is a buzzin’. Below is a excerpt from the Patricia Marx's New Yorker article referenced above. It gives really good background on manufacturing in America and what’s happening in that arena today. Enjoy!
ABSTRACT: ON AND OFF THE AVENUE about buying American. What does the label “Made in the U.S.A.” mean, anyway? According to the FTC, it designates that “all or virtually all” of the product and its components were made in the fifty states, D.C., or any American territory or possession. Where else to begin the search for indigenous stuff but at Lord & Taylor, the first major emporium to spring up on Fifth Avenue? The retailarchy Bloomingdale’s has yet to go multinational. Mentions St. John Knits. What could be more American than Early American furniture? Shakers who can’t afford Shaker can acquire dovetailed pieces for their meetinghouses at Thos. Moser Cabinetmakers (699 Madison Ave, at 62nd St). Simon Pearce’s eponymous emporium (500 Park Avenue, at 59th St) has for decades specialized in glassware, ceramics, and sundry other breakables, most of them handmade in the company’s workshops in Vermont and Maryland. In 1950, nearly a third of employed Americans worked in factories. Today, it’s about ten per cent.

A new breed of golfer is leading the way on the greens – tall, lean and incredibly in shaped. Dustin Johnson (6’4”, 190lbs), Gary Woodland (6’1”, 195) and of course legendary Tiger Woods (6’2”) are long hitters profiled in today’s New York Times sports section. Johnson and Woodland are just a few of golfers on the circuit who have embraced athletic conditioning to increase power, finesse and confidence on the greens.
Woods is credited with starting this movement of “elite-level conditioning” following his bought with knee problems several years ago. Appearing ripped and shirtless on the cover of Vanity Fair, many marveled at the new physique wondering how the previously soft-looking Tiger transformed himself to a perfect da Vinci David state (we won’t even get into Balco).
Basketball players are now taking to the greens and even Woods thinks the influx is a major change for the sport. “We are finally going to get athletes, guys who can dunk, guys who could have played baseball, or could have played football at the D-I level.” Woods playing challenges on a personal level aside, it will be interesting to see how he comes face to face with this new reality this weekend at the Palmer Invitational.
