Tall Sales to stock up on extra long eseentials

Fed up with buying presents for others? Flush with Christmas gift cash? Keen to spruce up your tall wardrobe in time for the new season?

Here's a selection of the best end-of-year / Christmas sales and clearances that have something for tall people.

Buckle : Select Sale Styles up to 50% Off!

Finding extra long jeans is a basic life skill for us tall people. After hearing the refrain "we only stock extra long inseams online" one time too many in regular stores, I now head straight online first. Most online retailers now make returning and refunding items simple, so there's no reason not to try something out to see how it fits. I like Buckle's own "BKE" range for trendy but affordable denim but they also have a number of other fashion labels with long inseams (mostly 36 inch but some 37 and 38 inch inseams).

Staying on the theme of jeans, Western stores seem to be a reliable source of long inseam jeans. I'm not sure that cowboys were particularly tall but perhaps its something about all that jiggling up and down on horses that requires a long inseam - if anyone who understands horse-riding better than me would care to tell me, I'd be happy to learn! Western stores tend to be heavy on Wranglers which are your basic bread-and-butter jeans. But Sheplers has a wide range of brands with inseam up to an impressive 40 inches and waist suitable for tall slim and more athletic builds.

Sierra Trading Post

This is one of my favorite stores because you never quite know what you're going to find. Sierra Trading Post sells outdoor and work wear but also heavily reduced end of line items from high end names. Alongside carpenter's pants you may find cashmere socks or an expensive branded suit. Definitely a go-to if you are looking for tall coats and outdoor gear but also well worth a browse through the tall section. Although prices are generally reduced, New Year markdowns give an extra reason to visit!

Destination XL, where life starts at XL.

For the slimmer tall person like me, Destination XL may not offer much, especially for pants and jeans. But if you are more in the "Big and Tall" category (waist 36 inches and above) then you'll find plenty at Destination XL and Rochester Big & Tall (both owned by the same company). For sizes XL and above, Destination XL is also a reliable source of Polo Ralph Lauren polo shirts and other items. Right now, there is a clearance with up to 75% off many items.

234x60 Paul Fredrick : Clearance

At first glance, you might think Paul Fredrick is the place for your dad to shop. Or your grandad. Or some 1970s Wall Street throwback. But stick with me. Paul Fredrick has quite a wide selection of big and tall sizes (not for the very slim but pretty good for most). This is one place you can get wool and cashmere sweaters with Tall sizes and they have a wide selection of good quality dress shirts. Maybe not for your everyday shopping but at clearance or sale time its well worth a browse to pick a couple of "luxury" items.
