Best Jeans For Tall Men [May 2019]

When you are a tall guy, life is good.

Buying jeans, however, can be a disaster. If you have long legs or a larger frame, finding jeans that fit comfortably and don’t look terrible is surprisingly difficult.

We are going to set you up with 12 pairs that are made to suit taller guys. These jeans are mostly blended fabric — stretchier that regular jeans — with longer legs and more room that what you’d normally come across.

Ready? Let’s go.

Paige Transcend – Croft Skinny Fit Jeans for men $199.00

PAIGE’s skinniest-fitting jeans are made from exceptionally soft and comfortable TRANSCEND denim and cut with a low rise and pronounced taper below the knee.

The real key here is the blend fabric they are made with. Paige calls it “Transcend” and its hella comfortable.

SAINT LAURENT Skinny-Fit Stretch-Denim Jeans $550.00

Saint Laurent is a brand I always suggest to taller guys because they are so well made. In this case, if you have a lanky figure, the skinny, stretch fit will accommodate those long legs and still look great.

Mr. Porter Nudie Jeans $210.00

Made from durable organic denim that’s whiskered and faded for a worn look, this ‘Sleepy Sixten’ style is cut in a comfortable straight leg.

These are less skinny that some of the others mentioned, so if you are both tall and wide, they are a good choice.

Buck Mason Slim Fit Jean $135.00

I love Buck Mason’s knits and jeans, so I had to include them here. They have that laid-back California style, with a wider leg and durable fabric.

These jeans would be perfect if you need a go-to in your closet for going out after work (but not changing). They have no distressing, so you don’t have to worry about people “not getting” why there are holes in your jeans.

About the fabric – indigo pigment will gradually shift and marble to produce subtle, natural fades. This comfortable 12 oz. denim is 100% cotton.

Banana Republic Banana Republic Slim Rapid Movement Denim Gray Wash Jean $56.00

These are a great choice if you are invited to tons of “smart casual” affairs. Indeed Banana Republic should be called the “smart casual” mecca.

Blend fabric jeans that have the slimming properties of a dark wash but room to chill if you are a bigger guy. Not too much stretch but enough so you wont be uncomfortable. Slight whiskering on the front and a long leg to accommodate your long legs.

    Levi’s Levi’s Men’s 1955 501 Jeans $60.00

    If you are a classic dude then go with a pair of Levi’s. The 501s are made with a wider leg, in the classic fit, so they are not skinny. They will last forever too!

    Reasons We Love These

  • I love the style the look is vintage old school
  • A great craftsmanship and attention to detail and quality
  • I love the color and the classic 501 template
  • Things to Look Out For

  • They didn’t not shrink as much in length as the original 501s did.

    Extra slim-fitting, cotton-denim jeans are made with some stretch for comfort in a classic five-pocket style.

    Simple, stretch jeans that will look great going out or working all day as a creative. We should write an article about the “creative’s uniform”….these would be in there for sure.

    Reasons We Love These

  • The quality of the jeans is good. They don’t fade or stretch.
  • Things to Look Out For

  • The fit is tighter and material is rough
  • The material is not very stretchy

    What kind of jeans should tall guys wear?

    The most common jean taller men wear is straight leg and regular fit. This usually works best for their length
    Also always look for long cut if you are tall
    Avoid skinny fit jeans as these will not be flattering to your tall frame

    What should tall skinny guys wear?

    They should wear items that they are slim fitting, not skinny fit at all. They are good looking jeans for taller skinnier guys, but the skinny fit just makes it look too skinny if your tall.

    Layers, they are very important. They will accent your jeans and make colors pop while not focusing solely on your height
