I recently shared a Reel/Tiktok about buying a ‘Tall’ coat, and the sleeves coming up short.
I knew it would be relatable within the tall community I’ve found, but I’ve seen a handful of comments on IG about how many women “just buy men’s coats” so they’ll fit. First of all, there’s nothing wrong with wearing men’s fashion because let’s be real, sometimes we can find great styles AND they often have sizes that more often cater to height. BUT for that to be our only option or the only option easily accessible??! That’s a big NOPE from me. We shouldn’t have to settle for short sleeves, or settle for styles that we don’t love, just because that’s all that fits. And for many of us who live where it’s cold and where warm coats are imperative to every day life outside, not having options is not an option.
SO, here are some of my winter coats and where they came from (in case you need ideas on where to find those options:
I DO have a few more jackets that I didn’t share that were from Long Tall Sally, before their sale and rebrand. While they aren’t available anymore, I did see that the new LTS has restocked some classic winter coat styles. I don’t own any of their new coats yet, but after trying out some of their clothing, I’d be pretty confident in the sleeve lengths so I’ll share them below!
Like I said, not having options, is not an option. Hope this helps 🙂
