Father's Day Clothing Gifts for Tall Men and Short Men (Plus Style Tips for Busy Dads!)

For Tall Dads: If your dad is on the taller end of the height spectrum, shopping for clothes can be a challenge. Shirts and pants are often too short, and finding a suit that fits properly can seem impossible. But fear not, there are plenty of options for tall men. Look for brands that specialize in extended sizing, like FORtheFIT.com, DXL or Men's Wearhouse. They offer items like jackets, pants, and button-down shirts in sizes that are specifically tailored for tall men. Online retailers, like ASOS and FORtheFIT, often offer still wider selections of stylish clothing for tall guys, including tall men's jeans. FORtheFIT is unique in their wide assortment of tall men's sweatpants and athletic pant styles. When it comes to style, tall men should opt for clothing that accentuates their taller frames. Vertical stripes, tailored jackets, and slim-cut pants will all help to create a streamlined silhouette. And don't be afraid of bold patterns or prints – just make sure that they're proportional to your dad's height.

For Short Dads: On the flip side, if your dad falls on the shorter end of the spectrum, finding clothes that don't drown him in fabric can be a challenge. Look for brands that offer petite or short men's sizing, like FORtheFIT.com, or sometimes major retailers like Nordstrom or Macy's may offer some extended sizing for items like blazers and dress shirts. Specialty online retailers like FORtheFIT will also carry an extensive assortment of chinos, dress pants, jeans and more in sizes that are specifically tailored for shorter men. Another option is to get clothing altered to fit your dad's frame. Taking in a shirt or hemming pants can make a world of difference in how your dad looks and feels in his clothes. When it comes to style, shorter men should opt for clothing that fits close to the body. Slim-fit shirts and pants will help to elongate the legs and create a more proportional silhouette. And when it comes to patterns and prints, smaller is better. Stick to microprints or subtle patterns that won't overwhelm your dad's shorter frame.

STYLE TIPS for Busy Dads: If your dad is always on the go, chances are he wants clothing that is comfortable, practical, and stylish. Look for items that are made with performance fabrics, like moisture-wicking materials or stretchy fabrics. Brands like Lululemon or Nike offer clothing that is both functional and fashionable, while specialty online retailers like FORtheFIT.com, will offer those items in tall and short men's sizes.

When it comes to style, busy dads should opt for pieces that can be mixed and matched easily. Neutral colors like black, navy, and gray are always a safe bet, and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. And don't be afraid to invest in a few quality pieces – a well-made jacket or pair of shoes can pull together an entire outfit.

Shopping for Father's Day can be daunting, but with a little bit of guidance, you can find the perfect clothing gift for any dad. Tall or short, there are plenty of clothing and style options to choose from. Just remember to keep his individual style and preferences in mind, and you're sure to find a gift that he'll love. Happy Father's Day to all the amazing dads out there!
