The Performance Tapered French Terry Jogger from American Tall is a jogger created with being active in mind. The fabric makeup of 42% cotton, 52% polyester and 6% elastane makes a close-fitting, warm pant that allows your skin to breathe when active. The zippered back pocket lets you store keys, cash or a credit card on your hike, run or long-distance walk.

Tall Paul's Take on the Performance Tapered French Terry Jogger

My initial take on the AT Performance Tapered French Terry Joggers men’s was ‘meh.’

There are only three colours to choose from (black, grey, and blue), and visually I was having a hard time pairing these conservative-looking pants.

That all changed once I pulled on the Tech Navy Mix pair and felt the taper and cut worked perfectly with the cotton – polyester – elastane mix.

These joggers are one of the most perfect-fitting pants I have worn. That says a lot coming from a Tall Man with lifelong clothing struggles.

My dimensions are:

Height: 6’7 / 200cm
Weight: 220lbs / 100kg
Jogger size: L Tall (LT)

Pros

  • Long leg & inseam
  • Comfortable fabric
  • Zippered back pocket
  • Great taper

Cons

  • Non

How to Take Care of Your Performance Tapered French Terry Joggers

American Tall’s fabric and care section say that the Performance Tapered French Terry Jogger should be machine-washed cold 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. 

Washing your clothes in cold water with like coloured garments is always the smartest choice for us Tall Men.

American Tall: Fabric & Care Guide

  • 42% cotton, 52% polyester, 6% elastane 
  • Panel seams along the front, back and side
  • Ribbed waist and cuffs
  • Ornamental front fly

  • Tumble dry low, low heat iron
  • Do not bleach 
My Care Tips

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

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

The Performance Tapered French Terry Jogger is the perfect pant to throw on over your gym shorts before you leave the house.
