American Tall Essential Slim-Fit T-Shirt Review

American Tall Essential Slim-Fit T-Shirt

The Essential Slim Fitting T-Shirt is our (Tall Men) version of the ‘buy off the rack’ t-shirt. This tee pulls no punches; it just gives you exactly what you think it is, a quality t-shirt that fits more snugly in the shoulders, arms, chest and waist. While keeping these close contours to your body, the shirt stays true to its brand’s motto and keeps its length.

Tall Paul's Take on the Essential Slim-Fit T-Shirt

Guys, if you are wearing three t-shirts that have been in rotation for the last seven years and go for a closer cut of t-shirt, this is your moment!

With a mixture of colours and neck cuts (crew neck/v neck), the American Tall team has created the perfect t-shirt to load up on. This slim tee is the essential everyday wear for the majority of clothing styles out there.

Think of this as you going shopping like all the rest of the normal-size humans to pick up a few t-shirts to fill out your ‘staple’ roster.

My dimensions are:

Height: 6’7 / 200cm
Weight: 220lbs / 100kg
T-Shirt size: Large Tall (LT)


  • Comfortable
  • Good length
  • Lots of color options

How to Take Care of Your Essential Slim-Fit T-Shirt

American Tall’s fabric and care section say that the Essential Slim-Fit T-Shirt should be machine-washed cold with like colours and put into the dryer using the tumble dry low.

These washing and drying guidelines seem like sound advice to me; however, being a giant my whole life, I am wary of using the drying machine on new pieces of clothing. 

I advise you to wash your Essential Slim-Fit T-Shirt with like-coloured garments. Then hang them up to dry.

Essential Slim-Fit T-Shirt: Fabric & Care Guide

  • 95% cotton, 5% spandex
  • Pre-washed and shrinkage controlled
  • Machine wash cold with like colors
  • Tumble dry low, low heat iron
  • Do not bleach
My Care Tips for Essential Slim-Fit T-Shirt

When it comes to drying, using tumble dry low is your safest play if you choose to use the dryer. 

Instead of drying your t-shirt in the drying machine, you can dry your clothes using fresh air and sunlight.

How to Style Your Essential Slim-Fit T-Shirt

99% of the time, I wear a slim-fitting t-shirt with slim-fitting or skinny jeans. Combining the two pieces of clothing with our long and lean bodies will create a complimentary fashion statement. If you feel it’s a bit too tight for your usual style, take a button-up shirt and wear it overtop. Once you feel more confident in your new look, you can tie the shirt around your waist to take the look to a new level.
