Web Extra: America's Tallest Man Measured by Tailor
America's tallest man, Igor Vovkovinskiy, is measured at Mohan's Custom Tailors in Manhattan.
Vovkovinskiy, who stands 7'8", was given $10,000 worth of custom-made clothing from shop owner Mohan Ramchandani, who measured Igor's massive frame.
For the first time, Igor will choose from a variety of fabrics and tell Mohan what kind of clothes he wants. Igor expresses his gratitude. "After living through so many obstacles in my life, I'm beginning to think that maybe things are changing for the better."
He continues, "Thanks to Anderson Cooper and the partners he's worked with, I'm getting clothing made specifically for me, shoes custom made, custom mattress… I'm thinking maybe things are beginning to change towards the better."
