Women's Tall Jeans - Gap Original Long and Lean Jean

Well, like I said... this is one of the topics that I know about the best: Tall Women's Clothing. I have spent my life struggling to find clothes that fit and now that different stores are beginning to carry a few pieces at a time, I'm using this blog to point you in the right direction. What a deal!
I may try another name besides "Tall Women Clothing" for the blog... something catchy like "Tall Lady" or "Tall Girlz" or something... but in the meantime, I thought I'd start simple. If you have another name idea, please let me know.

My product review of the Original Long and Lean Tall Jeans by Gap:

I have owned 2 pairs of the Original Long and Lean Tall Jeans from Gap for over two years and I have never gotten tired of them. They have a slim cut through the legs and then flare at the ankle. They're also low cut, but not too low.

Essentially a quality boot cut jean, the Gap Original Long and Lean Tall Jeans have lasted me for the entire time I've had them. What I mean is, they haven't worn out. I'm still wearing both pairs and only bought a second in fear that Gap might stop carrying them in Long. I'm sure you've been there before. Somehow, when you finally find something in a tall size, you have to get it in every color and style possible, just in case.

Back to the review... these jeans have 4 pockets and a zip fly. They're 80% cotton and 20% polyester and should be machine washed. I also dry mine and haven't noticed any significant shrinking. says the inseam of the Original Long and Lean jean is 34.5" or 36.5." I have found that these pants are long enough to touch the ground if I'm in my bare feet; as I mentioned before, I'm 5'10", so that should give you an idea. These pants are almost too long for me (which I love).

The jeans are a dark blue and I find they can go with almost anything. I have worn them with a sweatshirt and tennis shoes to the store. I've worn them with high heels and a cute top out to a club. I've even worn them with boots.

As you can tell, these are actually my favorite women's tall jeans, so that's why they're my first blog entry. I highly recommend them! Oh, and the best part is, if they don't fit you, you won't have to mail them back... Gap allows in store returns or exchanges. What a deal!

Welcome to Tall Woman Clothing!

Very soon I hope to start posting tips on places to buy clothes, shoes, etc. for tall women!

I am 5'10" myself and have always found it hard to find long pants, big shoes, shirts with long enough sleeves, jackets with backs that have wide enough shoulders, long enough gloves, large enough hats... you get the idea!

Anyhow, with the power of the internet I'd like to share with you some of my finds - and maybe you can share a few of your secrets with me too!

Angie :)
