Meet the Ladies: tHoS Contributor Frances Killea

I first met Frances in college—she was a close friend of a close friend (who, incidentally, is another tall lovely at 5’10″). Soft-spoken, thoughtful, and kind beyond belief, I was immediately intrigued by Frances. As I got to know her a bit better, I realized her gentle mien was a humble cover for her exceptional eloquence, artistry,…

A Tall Coat for Every Aesthetic: Contributors’ Picks

My favorite season is coat season. Starting a few weeks after the advent of autumn, this isn’t the time of unlined shells or cotton jackets,  but sophisticated wool toppers, cozy, utilitarian anoraks, and high performance puffers to insulate against that growing chill in the air. I readily admit that my coat obsession could be an ancillary of…

“Wow” Jeans for the Tall and Athletic: Tall Couture’s Paige Manhattan Slim Boot

“I’ve never seen a pair of jeans look so perfect on someone.” It’s not a flowery review, but it gets the point across: these jeans do a body good. I’m 5’10” tall, and I have thighs built out by years of competitive swimming and recreational running and cycling— I don’t think I need to explain…
