Sarah on what she learned  

Thoughts on being an intern?

Being an intern has the notorious reputation of being the person who is just there to make coffee runs and stay out of the way, but working at TEAL was a completely different experience. I got hands on experience in learning how a small business runs and how the CEO must be able to run all aspects of the company. 

What did you expect?

Never being an intern before, I really had no idea what to expect. Due to the short time of the internship, however, I was nervous that I wouldn’t learn anything substantial and would adjust to a new environment just to leave. But I was completely wrong, because I felt at home immediately and found the two weeks extremely productive. 

Best part of the internship?

The best part of the internship was being able to experience the marketing side of fashion, something I have never been introduced to before in my life. I also got to watch Jenni pitch her company to a possible buyer, helping me learn how necessary it is to be able to eloquently sell your idea or company. 

What surprised you the most?

I was surprised most by how much fun I had doing the photoshoots, but also how much unseen work and effort goes into getting good photos for a website or catalog.

I had the unique pleasure of meeting and working with Sarah this past Spring. She came to us as a Dexter Southfield High School senior and spent 2 weeks doing a little bit of everything: coordinating photoshoots, finding models, photographing and videoing TEAL’s products and capturing her vision for the brand as well as joining a sales pitch to a buyer and preparing materials for fulfillment. Sarah models grace under pressure and contributed commitment, passion and new ideas! Thank you and good luck at George Washington University this Fall.

Tiptoe 2


During college, I was a student athlete on the crew team. At 5’9 I was on the short end of the spectrum. Many of my teammates were 5’10 – 6’+.  Finding an appropriately tall person to date was as easy as finding another student athlete.  The tall dating pool was built in.

However, after school, in my 20s I moved to a big city.  I had a few above average height friends (gals 6′ tall) and I noticed that tall mates seemed less available unless you were part of an athletic club (e.g. volleyball club, triathlete circuit) or just got lucky and worked with a tall person or tall people). It was challenging to find tall guys to date and it seemed like the most important criteria (aside from having a job and not being an axe murderer!!) was height. They needed to find someone that was taller than them.

With each generation getting taller finding a tall mate may become more of a challenge. Founder, Richard Vickery, tells us why and how his tall dating site works. started in the UK and is now in the US and it boasts 80 marriages. If height is a “must-have” quality for you then read on and find out how weeds out the shorter mates. Let vertically enhanced love find you.

Why a tall specific dating site?

When I got to that age where you start going to nightclubs and bars trying to find girlfriends I would always struggle to meet someone. Not becuase I was ugly (well I hope that wasn’t the reason!) but because I was tall. You see I had a growth spurt in my teenage years and in my late teens I was head and shoulders above everyone my age. So when I walked into a bar I was very often the tallest person of my age in there and the majority of the women my age were much shorter. This continued all the way throught my early 20’s. It made me think that I meeded to find a way to solve this problem. So one evening I searched for free domain names and realised was free, I bought it immediately and started a tall persons dating site.




Do tall people have more difficulty finding a mate?



Well from my experience and the feedback I have had from other people, the answer would be yes! Women seems to want to date men who are taller than them, much of this is due to social pressure (it’s not often you see couples where the man is shorter) and some of it is to do with wanting to feel protected by a taller man. For tall men, it’s again the social pressure but also the fact that a really big height difference can feel awkward. Tall people get enough people stare at them when they walk along on their own, that is multiplied 10 times when they walk hand in hand with a partner who is much shorter.







Are tall people considered more attractive which is why they can have their own site?



No I don’t think so. The idea of the site is to allow tall people to meet other tall people, in order to avoid the “difficult” situations that arise when tall people date much shorter people.



How does your dating site work? Do you set up a profile, wink, go on dates, etc?



You can join our site for free initially, so you can see if it is of interest. You set up a profile, which includes a photo, some multiple choice questions which you answer about yourself and a small bio. Once that is done, you can then search for people you might want to date and send them a ‘wink’ (which is an easy way to say you like the look of them) or a message. If you want to arrange a date, you have to upgrade to paid membership.




What is the cost to join your service?



Our business model is a subscription service. The costs are as follows, 6 month’s membership £79.95, 3 month’s membership £49.95 and 1 month membership – £24.95. We are up to 72% cheaper than one of the most popular dating sites and of course we only have tall members on our site which is just what tall people want. I am happy to give your readers a 50% discount on a 1 month membership, all they need to do is enter code “50TALL” at checkout.



How do you set yourself apart from your peers?



Two things set us apart from our peers. Firstly we are one of the only tall dating sites that restricts members by height, women have to be 5’5’’ and over, men 6’0’’ and over. Secndly we are building a tall community, to discuss tall issues, have a laught about all those things tall people are asked etc.



Why did you start this business? Was it to find a relationship? Can you share other success stories?



I started the business in 2012: As I mentioned above it was to solve a problem that I had encountered when I was younger. I would definitely use it to find a relationship, but when I created the site I was already in a relationship.


We have had over 80 marriages so I can happily share some success stories.  To be continued in a future post.

Press: Height of Style Review

July 14th, 2014

Thank you Height of Style Men’s Editor Ted Page! We love your review of our TEAL Chinos and psyched to read that your experience with our chinos were a stand out.  Read the full post below (2 of 2):


Khakis from TEAL Apparel: A Cut Above


by Ted Page


When I think about khakis, relaxed summer days come to mind. Wherever I actually am, khakis usually take my sensibilities to a place close to the water—hanging out on a deck overlooking the beach. Talking with friends, the cool ocean waves slipping up the sand and soaking my bare feet on a hot day. A vodka tonic is involved. In other words, khakis for me have always been casual. That is, of course, if I can find a decent pair in my size. Usually the pants I’ve been able to buy in my size (40″ waist, 36″ inseam) have lacked a perfect fit, and the quality has been basic. Stuff The Gap is able to mass produce cheaply.

This is why my experience with my new TEAL chinos makes them a stand out. TEAL describes my pants as “Traditional fit, Italian cotton twill dress chinos.”  The more dressy aspect of the pants, in my opinion, is what makes them great for tall men looking for something more stylish and exceptional than the run-of-the-mill options from the major brands. While there is still a feeling of relaxation when wearing TEAL chinos, these pants look very classy. I’d be totally comfortable wearing these for a boardroom presentation, or just another day at the office. And the Italian cotton twill fabric is very smooth, far more high-end than anything I’ve found with the usual chino suspects.

Perhaps most important, TEAL actually makes their pants specifically for “long and tall” guys. They have a long rise, and an overall cut that helps them feel ‘right’ and look really good at the same time. The waist sizes on my TEAL pants are definitely on the snug-side, so I’d definitely recommend skipping that extra slice of pizza (or, in my case, that second pint of Ben & Jerry’s Strawberry Shortcake frozen yogurt—God, that stuff is addictive). But on the positive side, the snugness of the fit lends them an exactness that makes me look trimmer than I actually am.

So, in my head I’m still seaside with my vodka tonic, but I’m giving that boardroom presentation nevertheless—and it’s working.

EDITOR’S TIPS:  For more details about the TEAL story, be sure to check out our interview with founder Jenni Lallier. And in exciting news, TEAL just launched a new selection of traditional fit colorways—here Ted wears the charcoal “storm”, but you can also nab your chinos in khaki shades, deep blue, or black—they still offer a slim fit option in a warm light goldThank you, TEAL, for snazzily outfitting “long and tall” mean everywhere—and outfitting The Height of Style team.
