American Tall Nelson Flannel Shirt Review

American Tall Nelson Flannel Shirts

Fellas, forget the Paul Bunyan stigma you may have felt growing up taller than everyone else. Paul Bunyan had it right; flannel does look great on tall guys. You should always have one to two flannel shirts in your dresser.

Tall Paul's Take on the American Tall Nelson Flannel Shirt

American Tall has done the Nelson Flannel Shirt right, fellas. With flannel being an easy to pair piece of clothing, I am always trying on shirts that I come across, and 99% of the time, being disappointed in the cut and length. A proper-fitting flannel shirt is a great look, while a billowy and loose-fitting flannel is horrible.

With the selection of colors of the Nelson Flannel, you can easily wear dark or light denim with no problem. Whatever is your staple jean, American Tall has the right color choice for you.

My dimensions are:

Height: 6’7 / 201cm
Weight: 220lbs / 100kg
Shirt size: Large Tall (LT)


  • Long waist length
  • Long arm length
  • Not baggy in the waist


  • Non

American Tall’s fabric and care section say that the Nelson Flannel Shirt has been pre-washed and shrinkage controlled so you don’t need to worry about losing any inches in the wash.

My Care Tips for the Nelson Flannel 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 flannel in the drying machine, you should dry your shirt using fresh air and sunlight.

How to Style Your American Tall Nelson Flannel Shirt

When you grab your Nelson Flannel Shirt, the options are endless for styling choices. Always start by thinking of other clothing to layer with it, with the length of the t-shirt you will wear under it or the type of jacket to wear over it.

Then there is the ability to add a bit of style by using the flannel as a complimentary piece and wrapping it around your waist.
