What size sweater for tall man?

Vancouver, WA(Zone 8a)

I am sending my God son a gift. He is 24 yrs old, tall (6ft 1)but not husky. Do you suggest XL? I am looking @ sweaters @ macy's; reduced from $80 ish to $20 and lower. I am buying everyone a sweater!!

I was going to say go to Eddie Bauer or somewhere that sells tall sizes, but most guys are not offended if you give an xl (and cut off the price but leave the ticket attached). My stepson is/was very tall (6'4") and skinny. He wears normal size dress shirts with long sleeves but an xl or l for a sweater. I think it's mostly pants that are tricky.

Many tall men have to by at a big and tall shop of some sort or be special fitted.

I may be a little late to this thread but JCPenney sells tall sizes also.

I did send him a Large but am waiting word that it is too short. I assured him that the hungry retailer, Macys, has such deals now that he should give the Large, if it is too small, to a friend and I will send him a Tall/Large. Really, $85 @ Xmas and $14 in January/Feb/ is a deal that I can send him another one next week.

I wish I had had a godparent! Nothing like that when we were growing up.

Me either. But this kid is just like my own and he has very little, materially. He is a sr. in college. He is brilliant w/ a very keen appreciation for all the gifts God has given him.

He is blessed to have you!
