Gents, are you simply too tall and can’t find jeans to fit you?
We keep getting asked for advice on where to find denim for the tall guy. Help is now at hand – we’ve managed to track down a TALL solution!! !
All you 6 feet PLUS b’ballers and lanky dudes can now rejoice because there’s someone out there that shares your wardrobe problems and has decided to do something about it.
Founder Mark Seeger is a strapping 6′ 6″ (198cm) tall guy, who, after a lifetime of frustration and disappointment with not being able to buy jeans that fit, began sewing jeans for himself over 3 years ago. It was not long before tall friends learned of his hobby and queued up. That was the advent of M Jeans, a new brand of jeans with denim for those of you tall & lean, tall & heavy – those in between [waist sizes 30 to 48 inches], and 6′ 2″ (188cm) up to a skyscraping 7′ 6″ (2.29M).
“It’s all about the fit,” Mark says. “Tall men want what everybody else has: to look great in jeans, whatever the occasion. Tall men simply can’t walk into any retail store and pick out a pair of jeans; the jeans are either too short or they fit like a potato sack. Shopping for jeans has always been frustrating.”
Because this one desire is so essential, that is solely what M Jeans focuses on: Making tall men look and feel great in jeans that fit better than any other pair they have ever worn.
M Jeans launches this month (March 2011) and if you can imagine it, this new denim brand combines design and fashion along with the fit and quality of custom tailoring.
“It’s taken years of measurements, and many many experiments, before arriving at the precise fits for the varying body sizes of tall men. And, we’ve combined the perfect fit with style: Jeans we can wear to the office, a work function, or smartly dress down for a club with a hipster tee. Jeans that are versatile, look great, and that fit better than anything we’ve ever bought before.” explained Seeger. “To us guys that are above average height, such jeans are a dream come true.”
M Jeans uses only select raw denim; no washes, rips, or tears. The unique 5-pocket design exudes modest confidence and subtlety, embodied by hidden features such as suede pockets and vintage stitching. The unique cuts are flattering and understated. “Suitable for the relaxed business-casual workplace. No longer do tall men have to put up with limited and inferior choices when it comes to jeans fashion.” adds Seeger. “We want to give tall guys the confidence to be stylish and the ability to experiment with fashion like everybody else.”
The primary M Jeans collection is classic straight cut, fabricated from raw select denim, with muted thread tones, suede pockets, and a unique 5-pocket design. Retail price: $150.
M Jeans will initially sell exclusively through the internet, via a direct-to-consumer distribution model, “because shopping at big & tall stores, and traditional retail, is awful.” So says Seeger.
M Jeans will be available in limited edition beginning in March 2011 from the M Jeans Store® (www.m-jeans.com), and are now available for pre-order.
