Men's zip hoodies in tall sizes are perfect for keeping warm when regular sizes just aren't long enough. If you're a guy who always seems to have his wrists or abdomen exposed to the colder temperatures, it may be time to find something in your correct size.

Finding Men's Zip Hoodies in Tall Sizes

In many cases, you won't even have to visit a big and tall store in order to find your tall size hoodie. Some stores that carry mostly regular sizes will also offer hoodies with longer sleeves and torsos for men who are 6'2" and taller. If you can't find what you're looking for in your local department stores and the big and tall men's stores you have near you don't offer the selection of casual clothing you'd prefer, you can try shopping online:

  • Amazon.com: Find a large and varied selection of men's zip hoodies in tall sizes, like those from Carhartt that come in sizes up to Tall 4XL.
  • eBay: You never know what you'll find on eBay, so if there's something specific you need, check back frequently to see what's been posted for sale.
  • Old Navy: The styles here go up to Tall XXXL. There are jersey-lined waffle knit, chenille lined, logo, striped, and jersey fleece options.
  • JCPenney: Simply for Sports ® hoodies are made from cotton/polyester and are available in several colors and in sizes up to Tall 5XL and Extra Tall 3X.

Wearing Zip Front Hoodies

Choosing zip front hoodies over pull-overs boils down to personal preference. You can find most hoodies, sports teams, logos, and colors in either style in tall sizes, so if zip hoodies aren't your style, it won't take much searching to find an alternative.

So when do zip front hoodies make a good choice? When it's crisp outside, of course, but a zip front style gives you the option to open up the front if you get a bit warm, and zip it back up again if you get cold again. With pullover styles, it's either on or off, with no in-between. Also, if you're wearing a funny t-shirt, you might want to show it off. With a zip front style, you can. Zip hoodies make a good choice during almost any season.

Regardless of the hoodie style, color, or fabric, it's best to stick to casual clothing when you wear yours. Try it with jeans, a t-shirt, cargo pants, or even a very thin sweater. They're also a great addition to work out attire, so if you're going for an early morning jog and need an extra layer while you're warming up, throw one on. They're effortless, and they're available in sizes that allow you to feel comfortable no matter what you're doing or what you're wearing it with.

Hoodies are supposed to be the ultimate in comfortable clothing, so finding men's zip hoodies in tall sizes is extremely important if you're 6'2" or taller. Getting a hoodie that's just slightly roomy on your tall frame will make all the difference in your relaxation, and keeping your wrists and abdomen covered will allow you to stay much warmer compared to other hoodies in regular sizes you may have encountered. Remember the zip front style when you want something a little more versatile than a pullover.
