View Full Version : Long undershirt for Tall guy?

July 27, 2008, 06:00 PM
I'm 6'5", and I have a problem finding decent t-shirts for an undershirt to concealed carry. I saw these 5.11 shirts (http://www.chiefsupply.com/Apparel%2CUniforms/Base_Layers/T-Shirts/40019) and read a review which seemed to state that it went 9" or so under the belt, which I would hope would be enough for me, but wanted to know if anyone has had experience with this type of problem. I normally wear Tall, but that only goes to my belt-line. Xtra-tall goes about 3" below my beltline, which is acceptable, but I'd prefer 5" for my tuckable holster. Thanks for the help!

Duluth has shirts that hang to your knees.

I'm 6'8" and I feel your pain. :D

I happen to run across some tshirts at the mall one day...at a FootLocker store to be precise. I bought the 3XL Tall and they are very long and stay tucked in too. I also happened across some at JC Penny that seemed to be about the same size and length. I'm not sure if your looking for just a regular tshirt, or an undershirt to wear under a dress shirt, but the ones I got from Penny's have pockets and the ones from FootLocker did not.

I have tried the ones from Duluth and will say they are similar to the ones I can find around here. On that note though I always check whenever I'm at the Mall and typically I can find them on sale for $8-$10 a pop, whereas through Duluth they are at least twice that plus shipping.

that's problem even for us shorty's at 6'4". if you want to stay warm in cold weather wear a wool-synthetic blend undershirt over a silk under. and then top layers.

well I'm only 6'2" but tall through the middle, & I found some tall t-shirts at Shopko, that are 8-10" below my beltline... & were cheap...;)

I'd like to see a Shooter's Leotard. The longest shirttail will still ride up with wear and get in the way after repeated draws while competing or practicing.

6' 7" here and I know what you guys mean. I always just dealt with the shorter tails until I started carrying concealed. These places are a Godsend!!

thanks bunches

Thanks for the good information. I'll take a look into it. I'm looking for an undershirt for under a company shirt which is way to short for my tastes.

I used to have that problem also. I'm 6'6'', and had a hard time for a while. Now, however, wearing super long plain white t-shirts is the new fashion for urban youths, so they are readily available at most mall type shoe stores and urban clothes stores. BTW...footlocker regularly has plain tees, 5 for $20, with plenty of tall options.
