Long tall Sally

I haven't shopped from there for ages but they had some money off the other day so I ordered. Anyway got 3 casual tops including a Breton style and they are lovely! Sleeves and body both long and they feel nice on
Just wanted to share for any other tall people

Oh thanks Olli that's good to know.
I always think the quality is poor with LTS, with a high price tag.

I've just ordered some JCrew Tall stuff, not arrived yet but looking forward to trying it all.

My order was about £43 I think for two long sleeve tops and a short sleeved which I didn't think was too bad

How tall are you? I'm 5' 10" but mostly legs and always find normal clothes too short but tall clothes far too long confused

Ollivander84 Sat 22-Apr-17 15:26:17

5ft 10 smile but usually find standard tops too short in the body for me. Around 34 inside leg

Livinabarnn Sat 22-Apr-17 15:26:40

That's a fantastic price for 3 tops. Will have a look.

Arm length is the most annoying thing for me. I do often push my sleeves up but can't do this with coats and blazers.

Ollivander84 Sat 22-Apr-17 15:31:37

These are definitely long in the arms, I would say just on first knuckle length

I've had some fab stuff from LTS over the last year.

About 5 years ago they were awful with high prices and cheap creasy fabrics. I think they must have been taking notice of the bad reviews, thank goodness.

Ollivander84 Sat 22-Apr-17 15:34:46

Yeah I remember browsing and thinking nope not paying that price! For some reason I looked again this year. I think it's better value if you do the multi buys but not bad prices at all. Sizing is generous I would say

Breton thing. Please ignore the fatness, I'm waiting for spinal surgery and can't exercise so I feel meh grin

ragz134 Sat 22-Apr-17 20:01:08

That Breton top is lovely! Looks good and flattering.

The only LTS item I own is a pair of navy smart trousers I wore for work for years, bought SH on ebay. They have lasted and lasted and were great quality.

Livinabarnn Sat 22-Apr-17 21:01:25

Olli, looks fab and there is no fatness to have to ignore. Best of luck with the surgery. Look at Hush for long PJ bottoms for when you're recuperating!

I have that top you are wearing Ollivander, I'm the same height as you and it's lovely & long on the body & arms. They wash very well too, and the colours don't fade.

I also like their long vests, I've got loads in different colours bought with their multi-buy offers.
