SEATTLE, April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- "Big and tall shouldn't mean big and fat. Tall and fit men deserve to have the latest styles and colors, too," says Mark Tindall, co-founder of Longshot Apparel, the online shirt brand for tall, fit men. "Finally tall guys can have access to the latest styles and colors. Gingham and twill are hot this season, as are purple and navy." Longshot is proud to introduce two new tall shirts to their growing line-up: The Leadon, a classic, crisp gingham shirt available in navy and purple; and The Chesley, a rich twill shirt in a navy/purple check. All Longshot products are designed and made in the USA from Italian fabric and compare in style and quality with brands such as Thomas Pink, Paul Smith, and Hamilton.
Longshot Apparel recognizes the all but forgotten tall, fit male consumer, offering shirts designed and graded for men 6'0" to 6'10." The signature Longshot Tailored Taller fit was developed from the ground up. "We had to start from scratch to redefine our fit for the tall, lean guy," says Susan Clare, one of the partners and an ex-marketing executive from Adidas. "We developed our own formula. Other brands simply make the shirt bigger all over rather than addressing the specific needs of someone who is tall and fit."
The company whose slogan is "taking the big out of the big and tall" offers its products exclusively via its online store. Free shipping and returns are part of the superior customer service the company offers. "Isn't it about time we start treating the tall, fit man with the respect he's due?" says Tindall, who stands 6'3" tall.
