Tall Personal Shopping: Tall Blazers & Colored Jeans

Client: 5'9" tall woman, age 37 Sizes: 4 or 26" waist, and 6 or medium in tops. 33"-34" inseam length. Budget: Not sure - maybe up to $100 per item. Wants: "I have the hardest time finding tall blazers, tall jackets and definitely tall denim in colors (grey and red) and stone wash denim. I will spend money for quality when it comes to blazers and jackets, but of course I will not pass up a good deal." Tall Snob Responds: I'm going to second what you said about finding "quality" tall blazers and jackets.  I will get one I love and then the same brand will produce a less than desirable quality the next time.  I believe it's because some of the name brands are outsourcing to different factories all the time and the quality control is not the greatest.

Ugh.  However, one brand that seems to stay consistent is JCrew, but you will pay much … [Read more...]
