Dangerous fashion ..  the dumb things people do for fashion as well as some hazardous materials in some clothing

I like going to fashion museums and once saw a history of the corset at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC.  It is frightening what women did.  I'm sure some still do it, but this was grotesque.

Saw a tee I needed, but not in the right size or color

Make it worth their while.

it looks broken now.  The LTS page works, but this is from their blog, which has a link at the bottom of the page.

During the Olympics LTS promoted some of the  English women's rowers and now a high jumper.  Minor women's sports are poorly supported, so I welcome this plus these are good tall women models and role models.

With financial problems many makers have cut back on their tall lines, so it is also good seeing LTS doing well, but I suspect they are one of the few tall specific apparel businesses that are doing well.

Re: fashion for talls:-)

There are about a dozen tall women's fashion blogs I look at about once a week.  A few of them are really great - I wish there were places like that when I was a teen.  Alicia has one of the best.  check out her current post on what she wears to work, which was featured in Bloomberg's Businessweek

http://www.tallswag.com/home/2013/8/2/w … -work.html

Another must follow, although not for tall women, is The Sartorialist.  It is street fashion and sometimes funny.  Here is the little black dress for wet weather:-)

If Alicia is looking for a job ask her to call me.

I may be wearing the trash bag fashion to the Sooners games this season.

Certainly we all don't need 38" inseams, but some of us do, so in the spirit of looking out for those that do I found a website that carries extra long jeans. JeansWest

Re: fashion for talls:-)

Hey! Popping in to share a local guy who started a label for tall men http://www.six8clothingcompany.com  I have gotten two pairs of jeans for Marc and a t-shirt and long sleeve woven shirt, and the quality is excellent. Fit is also really nice--a true 38" inseam! Denim is US made, so thats a bonus smile

Hope you all are well!
