Review of 2tall.com’s Ed Baxter Slim Fit Jeans in black, 38 inseam.
Great jeans for tall skinny 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 come by, but in my opinion, we shouldn’t just settle with finding the right size. The design has to be of your liking as well, of course – right?
These jeans are from 2tall.com, they are black, they are semi-tight and they are 38″ inseam. That seems to be a pretty good fit for my legs – attached to a body of 6’8″ or 204cm (in total; with the legs).
When I first tried them on, I was extremely happy with the length. They are really long – almost too long for me, as I normally wear 36″. But that also depends on the model and brand, so I went ahead an got a 38″ this time.
Besides from being really long inseam, I noticed that they fit nicely around my thighs and calves; they are slim-fit, but not too tight.
One thing that I disliked a bit was that there seemed to be a bit of excessive fabric at the ankles. If they were finished off as well as the rest of the jeans are made, they would have been just perfect.
A bit tighter fitting at the ankles would have made them greater than just great. Having a bit of stretch in the fabric, the jeans would easily allow my feet to slide through even though the fit was tighter.
Try on a pair yourself
A great thing about 2tall.com is their return policy. They offer free returns in the UK – print return labels on the website.
Outside the UK, you can still return your clothes, but not for free, as it would be unreasonably expensive for 2tall – we get that.
So don’t be afraid to order some different things from their webshop – give it a try, try on a pair of chinos, jeans, shorts, shoes or whatever you want.
And return what isn’t perfect if anything.
I’m super psyched about having found a great pair of slim-fit pair of jeans for tall skinny guys like me – and in a great black stretchy denim fabric.
Another good thing about these jeans is that they are affordable for a student like me – I’m actually very positive about the pricing throughout the webshop 2tall.com.
$97 for the black slim fit jeans – that is cheaper than most branded fashion jeans. These ones are made in collaboration with Ed Baxter, who makes the jeans extra long for 2tall.
Actually rolling up my pants for once
As I mentioned, these jeans are almost too long for me in 38″. So to compensate a bit for the extra inch and for the extra wide part at the ankle, I like to roll up the jeans a bit.
This takes off that extra inch in length and does good things for the fit as well.
I fold the bottom part over vertically to use the extra fabric and fit the pants around the leg – then roll up tightly twice.
Skinny guys with skinny jeans
Everything from fit to color to size and price – it all plays a role in making these jeans real great.
Only remark I have is that the bottom part of the pants could be bit more fitted. That’s it. So definitely a recommendation from me.
If you’re not a slim-fit kinda person like me, they still have loads of other fittings and styles on 2tall.com:
