I am not excessively tall (5'8") but my height is in my back and I am fed up of having a gap between trousers and top. I'm thinking about getting some long sleeved t shirty tops from LTS. Are they any good?
I'm 5'10" with a long back so I've bought quite a few bits from LTS over the years. I've found the quality is very hit & miss, tbh. I have a couple of things I live in, but most of the things I've tried recently have gone back. I also think their stuff is very expensive for the quality, and I've pretty much given up on them now.
I'm tall and have the same problem with tops. LTS has gone up in price and down in quality i gave up on them years ago. I find the best place for vest tops t shirts to wear underneath clothing is Primark ! their vest tops and t shirts are lovely and long. Joules jumpers and tops are also very generous in length, Mango also do some in great lenghts. I hate shopping for clothes and shoes and know which shops to look in and what shops to avoid
I've just ordered some stuff from LTS sale, I'm 5'10 and buy only sale stuff from there as then the price reflects the quality, I never pay full price. The tops are sized quite large, I tried on the long T shirt tops on in store and the sleeves were very long, I'm a 14 and quite often have a small size or a 12 in LTS.
I have ordered the Fox and Rose jumpers, a couple of cheap top/tunics and the micro fleece jacket and am awaiting their delivery
Thank you. About to embark on Saturday swimming lesson madness, but will have a look tonight! I picked up a couple of cheap Primark Ts a voiple of days ago, but not holding out much hope for after I have washed them a couple of times.
I have a long back, ape arms and 8.5 feet, but comparatively diddy 32" inside leg.
LTS is overpriced but if you have a long body then getting the fit can be worth it.
Also read all reviews on their website for the item you are interested in. They are often really helpful.
Quality is hit and miss. Cut is hit and miss. But I cannot bear having cold wrists or my top not meeting trousers so I still buy their stuff. Their sale clearance ends tomorrow but often their sale stuff is the shittest of the shit!
Not only me thinking that LTS is basicly overpriced, poor quality and crap. It remainds me of that designers joke (not politically correct though). "Big lass, wear a sack". Whoever designes their clothes believes that if you are tall you dress frumpy, mumsy and love to buy very expensive clothes of quality worse than big supermarkets own brands. And shoes...please don't mention shoes...I wear size 9 and I would rather buy of crossdressers website (sexy, big sizes, not too expensive) [going to lay down in a dark room]
LTS tends to be horrendous quality and very poor style. H&M are great for long tops that don't shrink in the wash. Next has a good tall section (online only I think ) but all my next tall tops have shrunk / unravelled hems so I'm not impressed.
