Joggers for Tall Men

If you haven’t owned a pair of joggers before, I am glad you found this article. Joggers are the more stylish and versatile cousin of the sweatpant. 

If your sweatpants aren’t fashionable to wear out in public, but you don’t want to throw on a pair of jeans, the jogger covers all you need. They are comfortable, stylish, and can be worn in many situations with many different looks.

What are Joggers?

How to Style Joggers

The safest play for us tall guys is to stick to the basics and pair a well-fitted t-shirt and a clean pair of trainers or chuck tailors to style your joggers.

How Should Joggers Fit?

Use these pointers when trying on a new pair of joggers. And read out guide on How Are Joggers Supposed To Fit?

  1. Your joggers should taper cleanly at the ankle and should have a close fit around your ankle. 
  2. Joggers should taper at the ankle and end above your shoes rather than over them. They can also taper above the ankle for taller people.
  3. Joggers should have a slim fit that clearly outlines the body’s shape but should not be so tight that they appear fitted or “skinny.”
  4. You should be able to move freely in your joggers and have a good range of motion. 
  5. The waistband of your joggers should sit on your hips. 
  6. When going for an athleisure look or wearing your joggers to lounge around casually, the crotch of the pants can be slightly dropped.
  7. If you’re looking for a more tailored look, there should be no drooping in the crotch.

Guys, give yourself a 2-3 inch buffer with the taper of the ankle when looking at the length of your joggers. The lowest you will want the taper is at the ankle, and you can go north from there up to 3 inches and still have a fashionable length.
