However for me the problems begin when I'm trying to find vintage style clobber, especially trousers, jeans, skirts and dresses. I like my skirts / dresses to finish below the knee as this is a much more flattering and vintage length (Vivien of Holloway is good for this) but have really struggled with trousers and jeans. The lovely lady behind rockabilly clothing company Lady K Loves have listened to customer feedback and are now doing their fabulous slim fit, high waist jeans in a long 36" leg which is fantastic. I have these jeans in a 33" leg but they are a bit too short and I certainly couldn't add a turn-up.....the longer length version will be perfect and I look forward to them arriving in around 6 weeks time as they are currently available for pre-order.
Get your pre-orders in NOW fellow tall-ies, I shall do another blog post about them when they arrive.
