  • Jeans for Tall Skinny Guys: My New favorites from 2tall.com

    Extra long slim-fit jeans for tall guys I'm not even kidding - I actually just got a new pair of jeans, and they are slowly turning my favorite. They do 2 things for me that I find very hard to find in the World of tall clothes; they are extremely long (38" inseam, which I have never owned in my life) and they are slim-fit. It's possible to find super long jeans for tall guys, yes - but not in a design that I love as much as these ones. 38" and 40" - even unfinished jeans are possible to ...

  • Fat Grips for Tall People

    This post is going to be about training and working out. I’ve started using something new, a new kind of equipment, that I think can benefit tall guys and girls with large hands quite a bit. The piece of equipment I’m talking about is called fat grips. It is a kind of of rubber grip that you bring to the gym and wrap around bars and levers in order to make the grip thicker. The guys producing these things say it is because a larger grip works your underarms in a different and better ways, and I can ...

  • How To Get Taller: 7 Tallsome Tips

    The things that I'm going to share with you here is something that I've done myself - although not on purpose. I read the Tall Book and there it was stated that height is highly dependent on your genetics. But it is up to you to max out your genetic potential. So if you are given great genes then this could potentially make you a really tall person. You still have the possibility of slowing down your growth with different lifestyle choices. I have led a very healthy lifestyle and combined with me having very tall parents, ...

  • Better Return Policy for Tall People

    In my experience, the most difficult kind of clothing to find for tall people is pants. Pants in length 36 or 38 are not so very standard and the most clothing stores that I go to don’t have them. I live in Copenhagen and here we are a lot of tall skinny dudes. My best guess is that most of these guys buy their clothing online because there aren't really a lot of physical stores that cater especially for tall people. So if you are a tall skinny man like myself you have to go online to ...
