Long Tall Sally, a brand that specializes in clothing and shoes for women of great heights, is returning to NYC in pop-up form for the fourth year in a row. This year, when the shop opens at 172 Duane Street on April 17th, it'll stay open for an entire week (previous shops have only had a weekend run), and it will conveniently coincide with "National Stand Tall Week."
Normally, the British retailer is only available to U.S. customers through its website, so the pop-up will give its fans who are 5'8" and above a chance to shop the spring and summer collections in person. If you're wondering how a garment is made "tall," they've been kind enough to send over a detailed illustration explaining how it happens: what hems are lowered, what seams are moved, you get it.
