RIESENHEMD Hamburg offers shirts in overlength, designed for tall men, with extra long sleeves (72 cm). Our shirts are available in two fits, “Modern Fit Long” and “Slim Fit Long”. But what is Modern Fit Long and Slim Fit Long and how do these fits differ from other cuts?
Anyone looking to buy an extra-long shirt may be confused by the variety of names that exist among manufacturers, such as modern fit, modern fit long, slim fit, body fit, contemporary fit, tailored fit, comfort fit,…
The background is the different bodies of men, for example, there are thinner, athletic, thicker, smaller and larger men. Some have wider shoulders, muscular sleeves or narrow hips. That is why different shirt manufacturers offer different fits for their shirts. However, many manufacturers use their own designations, and even with the same designation, often the fit of different manufacturers is not the same. Therefore, you should always look at the manufacturers’ fit chart / size chart to know if a shirt is narrow or wide cut.
If you are particularly tall or short, you must also pay attention to the arm length; some manufacturers produce only in standard arm lengths (65 cm-66 cm), others up to 70 cm and a few also with sleeve lengths of 72 cm or longer.

We at RIESENHEMD offer plus size shirts, with two fits “Slim Fit Long” and “Modern Fit Long”. “Slim Fit Long” is more fitted, for slim tall men. “Modern Fit Long” is for normal slim, tall men. This shirt is also waisted, but less so than the Slim Fit version, and therefore slightly less tight around the stomach. All our shirts have an arm length of 72 cm and are cut longer in the front and back than standard shirts – suitable for men over 1, 90 meters. Here you can view our size chart.
