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:

GREAT video and list. Never even thought about the possibility of these kind of videos. I’m 5”8 1/2 and find difficulties in the length of pants. I always look for sales because I know I have to pay extra to get them tailored.
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.
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 🙁
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
