CottonBrew Review: Online Made-to-Measure Clothier

CottonBrew review

This is a review of CottonBrew, an online custom suit manufacturer for men. Being able to buy a custom suit online is a blessing and a curse, which is why many guys have a love/hate relationship with online made-to-measure clothiers. On one hand, you can get a suit that looks almost near bespoke for a fraction of true bespoke prices. This post was made possible by CottonBrew, an online custom clothing brand for men.

Finding the Perfect Pair of Jeans for Short, Slim Men

Best jeans for short and slim men

If you're a short, slim man, it's very difficult to find a pair of jeans that fits well and flatters your body type. Being short makes it hard to find jeans because almost all jeans will be too long. Very few manufacturers make jeans with inseams shorter than 30 inches. SEE ALSO: Clothing Industry Hates Short Men  But, since getting pants hemmed is relatively easy, it's actually more important to find a pair of jeans that fits well everywhere else - especially around the hips and Continue Reading

The Modest Manifesto (Why We Care About Style)

The Modest Manifesto

My mission here at The Modest Man is to help short men dress well. But why? On the surface, this website is just a style blog. But it's not really about the clothes we wear or appearances at all.

I made a video to explain what I'm talking about, and I'm calling it The Modest Manifesto (see what I did there?). These are my core beliefs that drive Continue Reading

Adult acne skin care routine

Adult acne sucks. You'd think that once you hit your 20s and 30s, you wouldn't have to deal with annoying teenage problems like pimples (just annoying adult problems like rent and unrequited love). But that's not the case. Us adults have to deal with acne and all that annoying grown up stuff - zits, 401ks, marriage pressure from the parents... I'M NOT READY, MOM, OKAY?? Ok, it's not that bad. But the acne struggle is real, even for adult men. Many grown men suffer from mild to Continue Reading

The first quarter of 2016 has come to a close, which means it's time for another quarterly TMM income report. In this series, I take a break from talking about style for shorter men to give you a glimpse "behind the curtain" of the blogging business. Why do I do this?
