The struggles of walking in to a clothes store and finding a top thats right for you can be difficult at the best of times. You have to deal with difficult store layouts, expensive price tags, different fits, things looking good on the rack but not in the change room, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Well being a tall slim man makes this process all the more difficult, because department stores generally don’t cater for our sizing. Sure, sizes do generally go up to XXL but they’re always a boxy fit and never long enough at the waist. Finding longer length mens tops and pants in Australia has been a problem for long enough. So where to turn to? Big & Tall stores? Online shopping? Factory outlets? Don’t worry we hope to have you covered for all your longer length mens clothing needs.
Who are we? Plus 2 Clothing is an Australian menswear label that specialise in clothing for tall people. Whether you’re after tall tees, longer length tops, longer length shirts, longline tops, oversize clothing – or whatever else the kids are calling them these days, our aim is to have you covered. Whilst our focus is on mens casual wear and sportswear, we do also cater to your everyday needs of mens longer length basics – especially plain / blank longer length mens t-shirts.
Our basics range: There is nothing more timeless when it comes to fashion, than that of the plain white t-shirt. From the days of James Dean to wearing one, right up to Jay-Z having one on high rotation, there’s no denying that it will remain a staple of mens fashion for years to come. So what’s so special about our white tall tee? Well besides from the fact that it’s an extra long t-shirt (or longline tee as they are often referred to) we have also made sure that we didn’t take any shortcuts when it came to making sure that it’s a great fit and feel. There’s nothing worse than a cheap quality t-shirt that literally falls apart on you, and there’s a big difference between a high quality cotton and low quality cotton and this is what a lot of people don’t understand.
Our longer length t-shirts are a heavyweight 180gsm cotton that has been preshrunk to minimise shrinkage. We have then done a great deal of research in to creating a size chart that complements the modern tall man with a slimmer build, all whilst been as much in line with the size chart that you are familiar with of SMALL – XXL. Our sizing is true to size, so if you’re a medium in regular tees, you’re more than likely a medium in our tall tees, they just have that extra length that you’d expect in a tall fit t-shirt.
Along with our white tall tee, we have a great range of other extra long t-shirts in popular colours that you can check out in our tall tees store category. We also currently offer some great deals in our bundles section and free postage Australia wide once you have added a certain amount to cart (see top of website). Best of all, when you shop with Plus 2 Clothing you get high quality clothing at the kind of prices you would expect from an outlet store.
Besides stocking a large range of longer length basics, we have also made sure that we cater for those of us that like prints on our t-shirts. Our printed tall tees are generally limited edition runs, and themed around things that inspire us such as street culture, music, sport and streetwear fashion. If you’re looking to buy a printed tall tee the best place to check is our store page where we will list everything that’s currently in stock. That or our instagram @plus2clothing to stay up to date with new releases.
We have also made sure to cater for the tall man that is not necessarily a fan of the crew neck style t-shirt or maybe is after something a little fancier. This is why we also have a range of longer length scoop neck t-shirts. Besides been great to layer with, these are a great summer t-shirt that is a bit lighter in weight. They don’t feature any heavy slogans or branding and do have a fashionable pocket on the front. We have them in a number of colours and they are also available in our bundles section if you’re after a few of them.
Speaking of summer… We’re all aware of just how hot an Australian summer can be and sometimes the last thing you want to be wearing is a heavy shirt or pullover on a hot day. Most of us would rather be wearing a singlet and thongs (flip flops) all summer long, particularly when our mates are having a BBQ and we want to enjoy a few frothies. Well we’ve made sure that we have you covered when it comes to longer length mens singlets and tank tops. You can check out our range of longline singlets in our online store and we are soon to drop our new 2015 / 2015 summer range of tall muscle tees, extra long singlets and printed mens tall tank tops.
Along with our summer range, we also brought out an incredible range of tall hoodies in 2015. Aware of just how hard it can be to find a good fitting longline hoodie for the taller man, we set about to create a great slim fitting tall hoodie. They are both suitable for casual wear and to wear up at the snow, should you be in to snowboarding or skiing.
We made sure that our tall hoodie didn’t have massive prints on the front because we know a lot of people out there are just looking for a blank or plain black tall hoodie that’s comfy and has that extra length and cozy kangaroo pocket. They are a thick 100% cotton make up and you can check the latest of our 2016 range here: https://plus2clothing.com/product-category/tall-hoodies/ .
Lastly, for anyone that is on the hunt for a store in Australia to buy longer length jeans / pants, extra long shirts (button up), extra long jerseys or oversize fitting clothing of any description, make sure you follow us on Instagram at @plus2clothing where we are hoping to release a lot of clothing with the tall man in mind later this year and in to 2016. We will also be looking to expand our range of basics and include curved hem tall tees, scallop cut longline tees and a bigger range of raw finish tall tees and a few more secret cuts that we have in the works.
If you have any questions as to when we will be releasing anything or maybe you wish to wholesale some items from us, please head to the contact us page and drop us a line.
