Mixing and Matching Patterns
The general rule to mixing and matching patterns is to have each pattern the same size. When wearing all the same pattern, they should gradually go from big to small. If everything is the same size, it makes the outfit look too busy, which in turn, makes it difficult to focus on one item.
For example, a windowpane suit will have the biggest windowpanes, the shirt on the other hand, will have smaller panes. To top it off, the tie’s print should be smaller than the shirt. Mixing different patterns can be tricky and can easily be messed up.
The suit doesn’t always have to be the largest, it can be the tie or the shirt sometimes. It’s all about creating different proportions that make everything work.

I am always hunting for the perfect holiday gift for the tall, skinny man, or should I say “tall men.” My husband is 6’4″ tall and skinny and so are our two older sons, and we have a nine year old who just might out grow us all. When the season rolls around I am left scratching my head as to the perfect holiday gift for tall, skinny men. Since I am the only woman in the family it’s my duty to keep these guys dressed and looking good, lest they arrive at the holiday symphony concert in an oversized Nike running shirt and shorts that look like culottes. Let’s just say I am on the sartorial hook and buying socks and underwear just doesn’t cut it. This year I have found the perfect holiday gift for tall, skinny men–beautiful shirts from Longshot Apparel. I’m partial to the Blue Lawson myself. Our sixteen year old is going to look dapper in theVan Dyke and my husband, I’ve got the Gaston at the top of his list.

When you’re a tall athletic man, people notice you and your clothes, so it’s important to always look your best. Finding high-quality, slim fit casual shirts in extended height sizes is a real challenge, so that’s why we’ve designed the Leadon casual dress shirt. Made right here in the USA with comfortable Thomas Mason Italian cotton, this snappy shirt is a great choice for both work and play. It’s offered in a range of sizes including 4L, which has a 37.5-39 sleeve and fits a 17-18 neck. The cuffs are fused, and the hidden button collar has a generous width to prevent tugging and distortion.
Another extended size casual dress shirt is the Cutter & Buck Studio Gingham Sport Shirt, available in tall sizes 1X to 3X. This imported shirt features a collar with exposed buttons, hemmed shirttail, and a chest pocket. The center back pleat gives extra room through the torso, perfect for men with wide chest measurements.
When you’re looking for slim fit tall shirts, be sure to shop Longshot Apparel, where skinny men over six feet can find great quality American-made clothes designed to fit right.
It’s a small world, which is no help if you only fit in XXL. Tall guys always have to stretch to find clothes that don’t merely fit, but fit well. There are attempts to market to the big and tall consumer, but the selection can be slim. The Leadon from Longshot, however, is a casual dress shirt that comes in two sleeve sizesat a length that can be worn comfortably tucked in or out.
For instance, the 35.5-37 sleeve with a 17-18 neck is perfect for a tall and skinny man who doesn’t want extra baggy fabric around his middle. It is also crafted in America. The Leadon is constructed in the USA from a soft Italian fabric. The Cutter & Buck Studio Gingham Sport Shirt, on the other hand, is an imported shirt. Pick up the best fitting shirt you’ve ever tried on before you see it on one of your friends. It’s a small world after all.
Have you ever gone shopping and every shirt you tried on was not just for tall men but for big men too? This can leave you frustrated and frequently you find yourself settling for a shirt that does not really fit. At Longshot Apparel, we understand this problem, and we have tailor-made our shirtsto fit the tall, yet skinny man.
When you compare Longshot Apparel with other shirts on the market, you will notice the difference. The Cutter & Buck Studio Gingham Sport Shirt is a nice, casual dress shirt made with 100 % cotton. The neck size and even the length of the sleeves of both shirts are fairly similar to ours, but it is the chest and waist area where the biggest difference can be seen. The Longshot Gingham Sport Shirt with a 16.5-17.5 neck size and a 37.5-39 sleeve length is between 2 – 4 inches smaller in the waist and chest area making the shirt fit perfectly on the tall but slim fit man. When shopping for your next sport shirt, do not settle for one that does not fit; instead shop at Longshot Apparel for the perfect fitting casual shirt.
We know that when you stand out in a crowd, you need to look your best. For guys over six feet tall, that can be tough given the lack of high-quality, well fitting shirts available. Here at Longshot Apparel, we understand that being tall doesn’t mean you have a husky build, and that’s why we’ve designed The Leadon gingham check shirt(in purple and navy). This cool, comfortable shirt features lightweight Italian fabric combined with a stylish confident color that’s perfect for warm summer days.
Another option in a gingham check shirt is the Cutter & Buck Studio Gingham Sport Shirt designed for the guy who is both big and tall. The imported Cutter & Buck Studio Gingham Sport Shirt is offered in 1XLT through 3XLT and a single sleeve length, whereas the American-made Leadon from Longshot Apparel comes in two different arm lengths including a 35.5-37 sleeve, and offers different sizes like a 16.5-17.5 neck. When you want to find the best in fine fitted American-made shirts for tall men be sure to shop here at Longshot Apparel.
We at Longshot Apparel understand that extended height shouldn’t automatically mean wider fitting shirts. For slender and average men over six feet, finding well-sized, high quality causal dress shirts can be frustrating. That’s why we’ve designed The Leadon purple gingham checkshirt, because we know that tall men want to look and feel great.
The Cutter & Buck Studio Gingham Sport Shirt is another checker pattern casual shirt available in tall sizes, but because it is designed for a man who is both big and tall, slim and average men might find it baggy through the waist and arms. The Leadon from Longshot Apparel is proudly made in the USA with Longshot’s Tailored Taller fit, whereas the imported Cutter & Buck Studio Gingham Sport Shirt has a fit designed for the robust man. Offered in many sizes including a 37.5-39 sleeve length and 16-17 neck, we know that you’ll love the physique-enhancing fit and style of The Leadon from Longshot Apparel, so shop today for the best-fitting tall man’s shirts available anywhere.
