Tall Shopping Tips
Club members are invited to add their suggestions for good places around Chicago to get tall-fitting clothes, large size shoes, tall furniture, etc.
Rob K's suggestions:
Tall Paul's Tall Mall sells some great furniture. We have one of their Adriondack chairs. It is always a big hit with our Tall Club friends.
For shoes, Nordstrom Rack has a very good selection of stylish shoes up to size 16 (US). I have even a few sizes 18 and 20. They have four locations around Chicago. Look for their "Large Size Shoe Event"s, when they concentrate a big selection of large shoes at one of these stores.
Men's Tall Ties
New Store - online business based in Chicago. They sell extra long neckties for tall men. Men who are 6’2″ or taller should wear extra long neckties. Their ties are all 61-63 inches long, which is about 4 inches longer than regular ties. Check out huge selection of colors, fabrics, and styles.
Long Tie Store was founded by a tall man who was frustrated by the meager selection of ties that fit him at most men’s clothiers. Here, every tie is a little longer and ships for free to any address in the USA and Canada. Furthermore, these ties come in a variety of colors, styles, and fabric. And every tie is only $20
