Where to Buy Clothes for Short Men | Complete List of Brands

475 ratings | 18124 views
Most clothing brands completely ignore short men. They make clothes for men of average height and taller men. But there are some brands who focus exclusively on shorter men. If you haven't tried these speciality brands, I highly recommend giving them a shot. Some of them have actual brick and mortar stores, some operate online, and some do both. They all have different styles and price points, from super affordable to very expensive. For a full, always up-to-date list of shorter men clothing brands, be sure to bookmark the link below: Full List → http://mdst.mn/brands — BRANDS MENTIONED ▪ Peter Manning → https://youtu.be/xGIUWt1oxfU ▪ Ash & Erie → http://mdst.mn/2swxfTj ▪ Sharp Casualwear → http://mdst.mn/2BwgzxU ▪ Jimmy Au's → http://mdst.mn/2BxjGG3 ▪ For the Fit → https://www.forthefit.com/ ▪ Robbie Brown → http://robbiebrown.ca/ ▪ Short and Fat → http://mdst.mn/2Hib0Uo — SHOP THE VIDEO ▪ T-shirt → http://fave.co/2C1W8u0 ▪ Jacket → https://rstyle.me/n/cxwpean4v6 ▪ Watch → http://geni.us/BAGC3 — RELATED VIDEOS ▪ Best Slim Fit Jeans → https://youtu.be/Jyc6MnpI9vc ▪ Jeans for Short Men → https://youtu.be/v2AW9aUUt3I — BEST YOUTUBE MUSIC → https://goo.gl/UhwtMb — MY GEAR ▪ Canon T6i → http://geni.us/4kSX ▪ Laptop → http://fave.co/2hgKaDF ▪ Laptop stand → http://fave.co/2vQwBj3 ▪ Lens #1 (50mm) → http://geni.us/OiE9 ▪ Lens #2 (10-18mm) → http://geni.us/qgGQckE ▪ Lens #3 (24mm) → http://geni.us/x61A ▪ Lav mic → http://geni.us/ZBlvGh ▪ Desk mic → http://geni.us/wCdS7t2 — YOUTUBE MUSIC → https://goo.gl/UhwtMb — STYLE GUIDES ▪ Free E-Books → http://mdst.mn/guide-pack ▪ Premium Guide → http://mdst.mn/tmmsg — FOLLOW ME ▪ Podcast → http://fave.co/2vej94M ▪ Instagram → https://www.instagram.com/modestmanstyle/ ▪ Twitter → https://twitter.com/modestmanstyle ▪ Facebook → https://www.facebook.com/modestmanblog/ ▪ Private Group → https://www.facebook.com/groups/modestmen — Contains affiliate links // Stay stylish!

What about shopes in Europe, I keep searching for some on the web but they seem non-existent. If you guys know anything please let me know.

for me, american eagle is the ONLY jean brand i've encountered that consistently sells sizes as low as 26x26 (I'm a 28x28 myself)

What do you think about t-shirts with pockets?
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
As long as the pocket is in the right place I like them.

I'm 5'4 and tired of going to boys section to get the right size. I will definitely check out awesome sites! Thanks

Do any of these brand ship internationally?

Hey bud. First off, great video. I live for your short men brand reviews. Could I suggest trying Goodthreads brand on Amazon. Their pants sizes go up to 28 in length. I usually wear 30 W by 27 L, but these 30 W by 28 L chinos are pretty comfortable and fit very well for my 5'4" frame.
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
Will do, thanks for the tip.

Thanks for the video! I'm young and still growing, but I have been having a lot of problems. I have long legs for my short body and I'm also very skinny. For height, I'm a 30, but for the waist size, I'm about a 24. In the kids section, I'm an 18, but that's actually rare to find. That all means I have to spend an entire day at a massive mall just to find one reasonable pair of pants and all my pants are much more baggy than I wish 🙁

Top shop has a lot of clothes for short men.

Funniest thing, was just about to comment on one of your videos asking what brand you get and then I saw this video
Louis Del Monte (8 months ago)
Excellent video, Brock. Macy's sells mens clothing in short sizes, such suits and blazers in 36, 38, etc. short. I would rate them $$$$. Although they are expensive, I think they are worth checking out.
Sean Miller (9 days ago)
Yeah, short and fat sizes are easy to find. This is for short and skinny/average men.
J DIAZ (8 months ago)
7 tall dudes down voted this video.
Robert (8 months ago)
Great video! A friend of mine went to the Robbie Brown store; it's quite expensive with dress shirts around $175, but the quality seems to match. The Google reviews are also all very positive.
Cleaver Believer (8 months ago)
Really appreciate this channel!
Boson Higgs (8 months ago)
... or fly to Europe/Japan and enjoy XXS,XXXS in shops like ZARA and H&M
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
That would be awesome...but it's a long way to go for clothes!

Amazing channel Keep up the great videos man👍🏽
Carlos Hernandez (8 months ago)
Asos usually carries XS, XXS and even XXXS on most clothes. They tend to be a little long but they fit really well around the shoulder and chest area which are the hardest parts to get tailored. I get my basics from there and haven't found a T-shirt that fits me better than those. You should do an Asos haul, it's on the $ range so you could get a lot of stuff without paying too much.
Sean Miller (9 days ago)
Trousers usually start at a 30 inch leg tho, which is the main issue. Tshirts, shirts etc. are easy to get in the right size. Trousers are much much harder. If we got for shorter leg sizes we then have to battle with either kids or women's clothing which isn't cut the right way in the seat or the hips for men.
GraVeu (8 months ago)
Its kind of insane - especially as a university student - that I have to pay as much money as these companies are asking for, for clothes that fit me. All this means it that the supply for actual fitting clothes is so low with such high demand that companies get to exploit it. I don't have money to buy clothes from a lot of the the companies listed, though obviously not all of them. Not that any of this is the fault of your list Brock, I'm always happy with the content you put out and the video itself is still great. All that being said I'm still happy that a channel actually exists for this sort of thing, at least there's someone out there for us :p P.S ROBBIE BROWN'S: I've been to Robbie Brown's the prices aren't listed on the website but most shirts in the store go for over 100, 200 dollars. It's INCREDIBLY expensive.
GraVeu (8 months ago)
That's a fair point. I didn't consider that the companies are smaller and run by a few individuals who need money too, which is something you'd think I know considering I'm a frustrated uni student :p I'd totally buy the clothes for the quality alone if I had the money. I got into the whole fashion thing a few months ago, it's really frustrating to walk into a store trying to improve and not being able to because of my size...once you bring finances into the equation as well, it becomes difficult to stay motivated.
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
I hear ya. Although, for the record, I truly don't think these companies are exploiting low supply/high demand. I think they're just trying to make enough profit to stay in business. It's *really* hard for a small apparel brand to stay afloat, let alone provide salaries for its founders and employees. These brand probably have way higher cost of goods than most big brands, and their margins are often slim. In fact, I'd wager that increased demand would lower prices in this case. If the Peter Mannings of the world could order in larger quantities, mill their own fabrics, etc., they'd have much lower cost of goods. Again, I hear you. These clothes aren't the cheapest. But I don't think they're unfairly priced or overpriced - just expensive by many guys' standards (especially younger guys and students).
Patrick Bateman (8 months ago)
More! I want more videos, workout routine, morning/day routines would be nice to see!
Matt Gonzalez (8 months ago)
Good list, but it'd be cool if you could also make a list of clothing from "regular" brands that fit shorter men well
Philippe BucherFSHN (8 months ago)
I wanted to buy something from peter manning ever since I discovered your channel. I thought today's the day but my plans were crushed by the 50$ Shipping cost for 1 Shirt. So maybe next time when I'm in NYC can try something in store.
OTH50 (8 months ago)
Great vid Brock and informative, but what if you have a limited budget?
James Vincent (8 months ago)
I think Uniqlo is the best out of the big brands, i am just under 5/8 and most things fit ok, so i shop there and the price fits my budget. But yes you cant beat PM they rule them all, except the price unfortunately, but they are good quality. Nice video thanks again.
Reza Zinat (4 months ago)
James Vincent what size u wear from uniqlo? My height is also same
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
Agreed, Uniqlo would be my one stop shop outside of these specialty brands, if I had to pick one store for casual clothes.
Aylwin Cal (8 months ago)
Hi Brock, if I were to buy just 1 item from Peter Manning, what would you recommend? I live in Europe but my wife is visiting NYC in a week or so. I'm kinda digging the black leather jacket. I believe alpha m. has one too. I'm also considering the topcoat as it's impossible to find one that fits my 5'5", 140lb frame over here. Both would be nice but I'm hesitant to spend so much money on clothes (especially expensive clothes) without trying them on beforehand. By the way, what's the size of your leather jacket? According to the website, I should be a size 3. Oh, and thanks for all the videos! Fantastic stuff!
Eduardo Chozas (8 months ago)
Leather jacket for sure. I loathe spending money but feel the jacket was worth every penny.
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
I’d definitely go 2 not 3 if you want a snug fit. But yeah man, tough call. Lmk how it turns out if you end up getting something!
Aylwin Cal (8 months ago)
Thanks for the quick response! I was actually thinking of getting a 2 since I'm only slightly over the limit according to the size chart. And I'd prefer a more snug fit over a loose one. I'm sure you can understand how paranoid I am about ordering clothes that are too big. :) In any case, I can see that the size 1 you wear fits very well and there's still room for some layering. You're right about the risk though. I'll have to take that into consideration.
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
That’s tough... I’d gravitate toward the leather jacket. I wear it more than any top coat I own. I’m a size 1, but the size chart would probably say I’m a 2. You’re probably better off in a 2, but it’s tough to say without trying it on. I’ll be honest: it’s a risky purchase if you’re in Europe, so you have to be okay with the return process. But it is an awesome brand that’s worth trying IMO.
drlatham22 (8 months ago)
I've seen statistics that 33% of men are 5"8" or less in height...it's amazing how apparel manufacturers and retailers overlook this segment of men's clothing market...
James Ballard (1 month ago)
As a 5'6 bloke it's a pain to have to pay tailor tax every time I buy jeans/trousers. Time to start my own 5'8 and shorter clothing line!!
donkeyenvious (8 months ago)
drlatham22 yes, 5’8 is above average in most of the worlds most populous countries including China, India, Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Japan, Mexico, etc.
drlatham22 (8 months ago)
I agree with you--average height for men in many countries is 2 to 6 inches less than that in the US, Canada, Europe and the UK.
donkeyenvious (8 months ago)
drlatham22 33%??? I suspect the percentage is much higher than that worldwide.
baseballsux (8 months ago)
What about skinny guys? I'm 28 yrs old, 5' 11" but I wear a small or extra small shirt, it's really hard to find suits, and I wear a 28x30 pants. It's so hard to find stuff
David Lajos (8 months ago)
lol if you're having a tough time being an avg height guy can you imagine how hard it is being short?
Pyridius (8 months ago)
Would you say these companies are a good alternative to tailoring most mall brands or is it something people should do instead of shopping at regular brands.
Pyridius (8 months ago)
Oh okay, I''ll wait for your video before I do anything too big then. Thanks for the advice!
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
I should do a vid on them soon. I know Khoi from Gentleman Within has an awesome Harrington jacket from ASOS that fits him perfectly. They carry XXS which is cool. In my experience, their ASOS brand stuff is pretty low quality, but you get what you pay for. I like their skinny chino shorts, but they fall apart after a couple seasons.
Pyridius (8 months ago)
Yeah, I'm looking to work on outerwear since I've just started living in Northern California so it's much colder than the south. Do you have any thoughts on ASOS for tops/outerwear? I've read that it's good for shorter men, and I've seen you mention them occasionally in articles, have you considered doing a video on them too?
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
Excellent question. I do a mix of both. Standard brands + tailoring works for a lot of basics. Outerwear can be tough, depending on what it is. My wardrobe is probably 30-40% specialty brands, 10% custom and the rest standard + tailoring.
DeJuan McGuire (8 months ago)
Thanks for sharing this list! I'll have to check out these brands.
Is 5'10" short for usa?
David Lajos (8 months ago)
No, 5'10 is the actual average
michael aronchik (8 months ago)
2 inches above average
Vinh Tran (8 months ago)
You can check out Express. I am 5'9" and quite thin. I find their clothes fit me pretty well. Good thing is you can find them at any of local malls.
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
I like their wool v-neck sweaters, although the sleeves are too long for me. I used to wear their jeans, but I prefer higher quality fabrics these days. I wish they didn't put their logo on so many of their items.
Curtiss Wu (8 months ago)
The list worth its weight in gold! Well, as much something in the ether of the internet can weigh... =)
A Shimoda (8 months ago)
Nice video. Gap still works for me and they just have way more to choose from. Their prices are less expensive than some of the brands in the video. I usually get the skinny.
ki4vo (8 months ago)
Hi, very informative video, thank you so much. May I ask if it's an option buying from Europe? I actually have never bought anything from USA and don't know anything about shipping and taxes etc..

What brand is available in Canada?
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
Most ship there. Robbie Brown is in Toronto.
