Meet the Ladies: tHoS Contributor Meghan Gabriel

I first met Meghan about 5 years ago, through a mutual best friend (hers in childhood, mine in college). There was immediate and easy rapport—I felt as though I had known her for decades, not minutes. Though fast-paced lives in two different cities make seeing each other a bit more difficult these days, I forget the…


Where Dino Meets Superman: Paul Fredrick’s Staples for the Modern Gentleman

By Adam DeMasi I was stunned by the offerings from Paul Fredrick I received this month. First off was the madras plaid sport shirt, which fit great—I was pleased and a bit shocked to find that the arms were long enough for me (if you’re reading this, I’m sure you’ve had the same problems with shirts falling short…


Meet the Ladies: THoS Contributor Elisabeth Schettle

One of the most exciting moments for me to date was when I got my first email from a reader in 2010. I realized—with a fair degree of shock—that someone was not only *actually* reading, but taking the time to reach out and share a bit of their story. That email meant a lot to me then, and…

It’s even more rare that the same store carries stock…


Tall Summer Sale Round-Up: From Shoesissima to Talltique

July is a great month for bargain hunters—and the last week of July is even better for bargain hunters. Retailers have to move out spring and summer merchandise to make room for the fall fashions that hit the stores come August, so other than March (the month for nabbing exceptional deals on winter apparel), now…


Work That Dress: J.Crew’s Tall Summer Options

Despite being always a bit cold and a lot pasty, I never really relish the spring and summer. I burn at the beach, break out in hives from the smallest bug bite, and get to watch my thick mane go wild for 3 months. I’m always longing for fall—the nip in the air, to justify hibernation in a giant coat, sweater, or…
