Suits for Tall Men by Paul Malone

Understanding Your Unique Fit

Proper Measurements Are Key: The first step in choosing a suit is getting accurate measurements. For taller men, length is crucial—not just for the sleeves and trousers, but also for the overall jacket length. For bigger men, attention must be given to the fit around the shoulders, chest, and waist to ensure a flattering silhouette.

Selecting the Right Suit Style

Opt for Timeless Cuts: We recommend classic styles such as the single-breasted suit, which elongates the frame and provides a sleek silhouette. Double-breasted suits can also be a great choice, particularly for taller men, as they help balance proportions and add an element of timeless sophistication.

Choose Fabrics Wisely: Lightweight fabrics can help in reducing bulk and maintaining a clean line. For cooler months, well-tailored wool suits offer warmth without adding unnecessary weight. Our selection includes high-quality materials that cater specifically to the needs of big and tall gentlemen.

The Importance of Color and Pattern

Go for Solid Colors: Darker shades like navy, charcoal, and black not only offer versatility but also provide a slimming effect. For those looking to add a bit more personality to their wardrobe, subtle patterns such as pinstripes or a soft check can be flattering.

Mastering the Art of Accessories

Ties that Complement: For taller men, finding a tie that’s the right length is essential. It should just reach the waistband of your trousers. Our extra-long ties are designed to meet this need, ensuring that your tie never comes up short.

Belt and Shoes: A well-chosen belt can define your waistline and enhance your suit’s fit. Shoes should be proportionate to your build—bulkier shoes can balance out the overall look for bigger frames.
