Tall man seeks fabric recliner.

talldeanFebruary 23, 2009

I'm 6'9". I have a 36" inseam, which makes me mostly torso. Every recliner I see for sale leaves my head dangling in the breeze above the headrest, which makes me a sad, sad lounger.

Any suggestions for abnormally tall folks? :-)

If you are willing to try leather, there's Stickley's Morris recliner.

My 6'8" son is comfortable in it.

Try Taylor King,sister company to Hancock & Moore, their former president was 6'6" and they make an excellent recliner.

For that matter, Jack Glasheen, president of Hancock & Moore, is about 6' 5" or so. I'm sure there are some recliners in both lines that comfortably fit their chief executives.

Here is a link that might be useful: Taylor King recliners

Hi! I found your recliner. My husband is 6'10" with a 36" inseam so I know your complaint (I've been hearing it for many years!) We just bought a recliner by Klaussner from the Garrick collection. It has a very high back (48" I believe) We also paid a little more to have a rocker added. It makes the seat a little higher. He loves it! I find it a little ridiculous, I'm 5'10" and my feet dangle. Unfortunately it's not on their website. We bought it from a discount North Carolina furniture store. Good Luck!

Ginny,

Mind telling me the name of the store and $? I have searched online and found nothing afa the garrick collection. Maybe they would ship one to pennsylvania. Would you mind measuring it from seat to the top of the back? To me that is the most useful measurement and of course it's not even used in the recliner business. thx

6'5" + 34" inseam. People hate to sit behind us in a theater, don't they?

I have a 30 year old La-z-boy big man's chair. Last I looked at them about five years ago, I mumbled to myself, "They no longer have a big man's chair, they have a fat man's chair."
