TallSlim Tees Size: Large
Favorite TallSlim Tees Product:
Actually I have never worn any of your products before! But I have the Dual Blend Henley Long Sleeve flying across the world (or at least in a transit hub somewhere in the USA) to me as I write this.
I am really excited to try it on and use it as a staple top for these cold months coming up.
What Do You Do For Work?
I have my hand in a mixture of pots but overall you could categorize me as an entrepreneur. For the previous 15 years I was a personal trainer, but when covid hit I launched my first website. The website is a Mental Health Help website called Never Alone. I launched it due to my own mental health struggles growing up, being a tall guy, and more recent life events.
Since launching Never Alone I dove deep into learning SEO and now I have my second website up which brings me here to you today! tallpaul.ca is a Tall Men’s Fashion blog that’s main focus is helping other tall men who don’t relate to Big & Tall feel confident in themselves.
And then lastly I contract out my SEO skills to companies to run their SEO divisions.
What Kind of Car Do You Drive?
Actually, I do not own a car. When I was younger I always thought public transportation was for the weak and poor. In the last 10 years a lot of change has happened inside me, and now I take public transportation any long distance. But my first choice to get around will be bike, road bike, or walking. Change is good :)
What Do You Like Most About Being Tall?
The older I get the more I appreciate everything that comes with being tall. It’s nice to be different than the cookie cutter mold society puts on everything.
What Do You Hate Most About Being Tall?
I don’t hate anything about being my height and who I am. Sure, getting stuck in a middle seat on a flight without exit row can be a bit of a nuisance. But on the counter, I wouldn’t be bumped up classes on long haul flights every once in a while if I was ‘normal.’
How Tall is Your Tallest Friend?
I think one of my friends is 6’0? Or close to it.
If You Could Change Your Height, Would You? Why or Why Not?
No, I would not change my height. I’m glad human heights are a set thing that come from our parent's DNA, it is one of the things that makes us unique.
What is the Most Difficult Piece of Clothing to Find for Yourself?
Finding/buying a proper fitting suit was my longest journey when it comes to finding a clothing style I wanted. You can’t find a good cheap suit, it's one of those things you need to look at like an investment.
I have not had a lot of extra cash to throw a minimum of $2,000 to getting this made. Luckily I came across the friendship of a lifetime and now I have 3 bespoke suits that will last me 30 years each.
What is Your Favorite Piece of Clothing You Have?
My suites… 100%.
Putting on a properly tailored suit that is made for every inch of your body - the feeling and look can't be beat.
What is an Interesting Fact About Yourself?
I was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2003 and was the first 2-sport athlete in my University down in Louisiana.
Any Advice for Your Fellow Tall Man?
Dealing with my mental health struggles that led me to launch Never Alone, I found myself looking more introspectively. With help from my therapist and doing some more outside-the-box therapy choices with her (MDMA & LSD therapy) I came to realize I had a lot of trauma from my youth due to my height.
Anxiety, fear of failure, fear of people expecting me to be great, and so much more. If anyone reading this can relate, I want you to know it’s not uncommon. And if I can be of any help, you can always shoot me a DM to chat.
The funny thing about healing from my struggles over these last years is that my confidence has gone up, which has noticeably helped my confidence in fashion and the clothes I wear.
