Most eBooks and guides about dressing better are generic. They don't take into account the fact that shorter men have it much harder than everyone else.
The vast majority of clothing manufacturers totally ignore men under 5'8", which is why most clothes simply don't fit well on us. To make things worse, many popular colors and patterns don't really flatter the shorter build.
The result? Your clothes make you look shorter (and sometimes fatter) that you actually are! And, whether you like it or not, this has a devastating impact on the way people perceive you.
More importantly, it affects the way you see yourself.
The Modest Man Style Guide is unique because it focuses specifically on men who are below average height.
It's not about trying to appear taller. It's about dressing in a way that flatters your build, so you can have all the confidence you deserve - and everything that comes with it.
Ready to upgrade your style? This guide is for you!
While the wrong clothing will make you look shorter, less fit and less competent than you really are, the right clothes will make you look (and feel) taller, more athletic and more competent.
Yes, your height has left you at a disadvantage when it comes to style. You don't have an "off the rack" body type. But there are ways to manipulate fit, color, pattern and proportion to create outfits that not only downplay the things you don't like about your build, but also emphasize the good stuff.
These techniques have nothing to do with "dressing up" or wearing designer clothing. They don't require you to spend a ton of money rebuilding your wardrobe or buying custom suits (although you'll learn how to do that too).
The lessons in this guide are simple, affordable and intuitive. It's just that you've never heard them before!
I'm not saying it won't take effort. Dressing well does require a little extra time and money. More importantly, it requires patience and the desire to improve. But the benefits are truly priceless.
Imagine people describing you, not as the "short guy", but the "well dressed man". Could this have an impact on your career? Your love life? Your self-image and confidence?
Of course it could! Dressing well helped me get the attention and respect I knew I deserved. It helped me become less aware of my height, so that it's no longer a major source of insecurity.
That’s why I created The Modest Man Style Guide—to help you get the attention, respect and confidence that you deserve. And to help you avoid making so many mistakes and wasting so much money like I did!

Fit is the most important aspect of style, by far. It's especially important for men who are below average height. This first chapter is all about WHY fit is so important, and how focusing on fit can lead to dramatic results in very little time.
What's the difference between a dress shirt and casual button up? How slim should your pants be? How long should your shorts be? When is it okay to leave your shirt untucked? These three chapters answer all of these questions - and way more.
Whether you wear a suit everyday or only for special occasions, it's crucial to understand the details that make or break the suited look. Short men, especially, have a hard time with suits because nothing fits properly off the rack. You'll learn how to buy a suit, how a suit should fit, how to avoid common mistakes, and how to break all of the "rules" everyone says short men have to follow.
How long should your winter coat be? What's the best type of jacket for short men? How do you layer the rigtht way? What kind of shoes should shorter guys wear? Should you wear scarves? Are elevator shoes okay? These two chapters cover all of these topics and lots more.
After fit, color is the most important aspect of style. Most men stick to khaki, blue, white and black because they don't actually know what colors look good on them. This chapter teaches you how to determine your skin tone and natural contrast levels so you can become a color matching expert (and wear patterns like a pro).
The right accessories will take any outfit to the next level, The wrong ones will ruin your look (especially for guys with non-average body types). You'll learn what kind of watches to avoid, how to make sure neckties are the perfect length and more.
Tailoring is the secret weapon in every stylish man's arsenal. It's not optional for short men. It's necessary (if you want to look good). This chapter teaches you everything you need to know to find a tailor and start getting your clothes altered for the perfect fit.
This high quality photo book features 13 of the all time best outfits from The Modest Man, along with descriptions about why they work and links to every single item (from sweaters and shirts to belts and shoes).

Buying custom clothing is one of the best ways for shorter men to get button up shirts and suits that fit perfectly. But it can be intimidating, and the whole process is full of potential pitfalls. This bonus chapter teaches you how to ease into the world of MTM clothing and avoid wasting your money. It even includes real life examples of feedback emails sent to MTM clothiers that have worked with The Modest Man.
You probably don't wear most of the clothes in your closet. And the more you learn about style, the more you realize that lots of your clothes really don't belong there in the first place. But it's tough to get rid of clothes that you've owned for a long time or spent your hard-earned money on. This concise guide gives you a simple decision framework you can use to cleanse your entire wardrobe in less than a day.
"I've taken 9 pair of pants and 6 blazers to get tailored. HUGE difference. Without this, the clothes could just sit in my closet. Now have a new wardrobe that looks like it was made for me. Thanks for opening my eyes!"Rob M, Photographer (5'7")

First off, give yourself a high five! The fact that you're reading this means you care. You're trying to improve. Maybe your height has been a major source of insecurity for a long time, or maybe you just need a few tips to up your style game. Either way, you're here, and I applaud you for that.
I'm just under 5'6", and I used to be really insecure about my height. The fact that I didn't know how to dress didn't help. None of my clothes fit, I was clueless about color, and I had no idea how much this was impacting my life.
I used to feel like a kid playing dress up when I wore a suit. I stuck with the slouchy, grundgy look (you know, baggy jeans, hoodies, loose t-shirts) because I couldn’t find clothes that actually fit.
I never got the attention I wanted from women, and I never felt like my bosses really respected and trusted me. I felt like taller men were somehow better than me. And I certainly never got compliments on how I looked.
Fast forward to today...
I get compliments almost everyday. My friends - the ones who made fun of me when I started dressing well - ask me for style advice and to help them buy new clothes.
I've been featured on Men's Health, Art of Manliness, Real Men Real Style, Alpha M, Effortless Gent, Primer Magazine and more.
I've found success that I never had before in my personal and professional life. And, believe it or not, dressing well has had a lot to do with this.
I know it sounds weird (and even a little superficial), but improving your appearance can actually change your life. The way you dress is one of those rare things that you have complete control over - unlike your height.
So why not take advantage of that? Why not look as good as you can, every single day?
You're already trying. You already care. Now it's time to take the next step.
