For those of us who need to commute to work, finding the right work outfits is a chore.
It all depends on who you work for, but if you work any variety of desk job, you likely have a dress code you need to keep to. Depending on how severe that dress code it, it's probably pretty tough to find work shirts that feel comfortable - not to mention fit your tall frame.
Hopefully this article gives you a few ideas. Tall guys, we know the struggle.
What Makes a Good Work Shirt
Before we jump into a few good work shirts for tall guys, we need to define what a good tall work shirt looks like. Here are a few qualities you should value when searching for the perfect work shirt:
You should always feel confident in your work shirt. Those promotions aren't going to get themselves! The more confident you feel in your outfit, the more confident you will act on the job.
Your dress shirt needs to fit your work's dress code - which typically means a button down with a collar. Your dress shirt can't break any rules when it comes to your dress code.
A work shirt shouldn't be complicated to take care of. You'll be wearing them every week, so they better be able to wash and dry easily! And if you can avoid ironing, the better.
