Tall & Long Shirts

Photo: Yes. 

The words 'Tall' & 'Long' mean the same thing when ordering shirts. It adds to the body length as well as the sleeve length for most manufacturers.

YES. They are the same.

We get a lot of customers that come to us for work shirts. Both Red Kap and Dickies make many work shirts in a large selection of sizes. Some work shirts by Red Kap are made up to a size 6XL. Many of the work shirts are also made in Tall or Longs sizes. Some of our customers were getting confused in thinking there was a difference between a ‘tall’ and a ‘long’ work shirt.


Below is a size chart of one of our more popular workshirts by Red Kap. The SP24. Since it is a shorts sleeve work shirt, length is only added to the body and not the sleeves.
