This is the Hoodies for Tall Men: Guide to shopping & wearing.

In this article, I will give you the rundown on how to treat your hoodie right so it lasts long, what you can wear with it to style it and finally give you the top Tall Men brands making hoodies just for you.

How much longer is a tall hoodie?

In general, a Tall Men’s hoodie will be a minimum of 1-2 inches longer. This length will appear in both the length of the waist and in the arms. Unlike Big & Tall clothing, you will not see the size of the waist go out as the length gets longer. This will keep your Tall hoodie long but slim, fitting your body more fashionably.

How should a hoodie fit on a guy?

When looking for the perfect fitting Tall Men hoodie, you will want to make sure the shoulders are snug while the chest down to your waist stays draped consistently. You do not want your waist to billow out if you are looking for a more fashionable look to wear out. 

If your looking for a comfy hoodie to lounge about your home or use during your daily fitness routine, then a more loose-fitting hoodie will work.

How to fold hoodies

I would first suggest you hang your hoody up using a hangar. However, if you do not have space or need to fold it for a trip, this is how to fold your hoodie.

  1. Flip the hoodie backwards and upsidedown 
  2. Cross the arms across the back
  3. Fold the hoodie in half horizontally 
  4. Fold the hoodie vertically into quarters, creating a square
  5. Tuck the hood over the rest of the hoodie

How to style hoodies

You can style your hoodie with any layering coat or jacket that you have. A leather jacket, denim jacket or flannel jacket will add that sense of style to such a simple piece of clothing. If you want to stand out a bit more and own your Tall Men stature, throw on a parka or a peacoat.

Be sure to start your outfit off with the right fitting pair of jeans, and the right pair of shoes to match them.

How to keep hoodies soft

Here are seven tips to keep your hoodie soft as the years pass by.

  1. Use the right detergent 
  2. Remove stains properly
  3. Don’t use fabric softener
  4. Turn your sweatshirt inside out before washing
  5. Put your sweatshirts into the wash with similar items
  6. Run an extra rinse cycle 
  7. Do not put them in the dryer

How many times can you wear a hoodie before washing it?

You should go around five to seven wears before washing your hoodie, which is the general rule of thumb. Of course, this will vary depending on the type of activity you are doing with it and how long you wear it each time.

Should you zip up a hoodie before washing?

You should always zip up your hoodie before putting it into the washer. Zippers can do a great deal of damage to your washing machine. Also, this will help make sure your hoodie doesn’t get unnecessarily stretched while washed.
