Western Wear for the Big and Tall Cowboy

I may have scrawny chicken legs myself, but I get a lot of questions about Urban Western Wear’s big and tall sizes.  I have good news for you tall cowboys–you have plenty of options!

When I’m helping out a tall friend, Roper clothing is my go-to recommendation.  Why? They offer tall sizes from medium-tall (MT) to 5XT.  That means Roper’s shirts, blazers, and vests come in dimensions to fit cowboys of any size.

Roper carries big and tall sizes in a variety of styles:

  • Long-sleeve buttons downs
  • Short-sleeve button downs
  • Suede and leather vests
  • Leather blazers

Shirts for the Tall Cowboy

Roper’s new Amarillo fit big and tall shirt, shown below in Wine, is a popular choice with taller guys — and with good reason.  This shirt comes with a button-down collar, a one-point back yoke with a pleat and locker loop, and two one-point pockets with flaps.   The two-button cuffs are adjustable.  And of course, the sleeves and tail for sizes MT through 5XT are long enough to fit the taller man.

Roper also makes short-sleeved shirts in tall sizes.  In fact, they’re one of the few Western wear companies that offers a short-sleeved tall size!  Shown below is another Amarillo style shirt with a longer tail.  Roper shirts are available in 100% cotton and a poly-cotton blend.

Try a Vest on For Size

Good news:  Vests are back in style.  I know because Chihuahua has started wearing them again (I never stopped).  The Roper Big Man vests are flying off the shelves–and you’ll see them in a lot of groomsman photos this season in those “rustic-chic” weddings that are all the rage.

Roper’s brown Western vest is made of lamb touch Nappa leather.  It has one-point front and back yokes and antique silver embossed snaps.  This great-looking vest is fully lined and has single welt front pockets.

This big and tall black vest is in a similar style as the vest above, but it’s made out of silky cow suede.  It’s a popular choice for Western special occasions!

Need a fancier option?  Don’t forget to pick up Roper’s Big Man’s Western blazer.  This premium lamb skin leather blazer is fully lined.  It has a two-button front, a notched collar and convertible flap to welt pockets.

Roper has a lot more big and tall choices in addition to my favorites above, and other brands have some good choices, too.  It’s good news for all the tall cowboys out there — thanks to some of these companies, you can start buying some clothes that actually fit!
