Clothes for Shorter Guys
What is this page? First, let me tell you what it’s not:
This is not a list of clothing brands that sort of work for shorter guys, or that happen to carry a few items that work for shorter gents.
Instead, the brands listed on this page specialize in clothing for men who are below average height.
Some of them have actual brick and mortar stores, some operate online, and some do both.
This list is regularly kept up to date, but if you happen to know of any brands that I missed, please let me know in the comments section at the bottom of the page.

Let’s look at each brand in a bit more detail…
Ash & Erie
Founded in 2015 out of Detroit, MI and popularized after appearing on Shark Tank, Ash & Erie makes everyday clothes for shorter guys.
I’ve tried almost everything Ash & Erie makes. You can read my full Ash & Erie review right here to see how it looks on me.
Founded in 2018 out of New York City, Under 510 makes modern, affordable clothes for shorter guys.
Significantly more affordable than much of the competition, Under 510’s prices and aesthetic is geared toward a slightly younger customer.
Founded in 202, Bantam Clothing is the only UK-based brand on this list.
Currently, they only make jeans and t-shirts, but they’re working on expanding their collection to include a wider variety of casual tops and bottoms for shorter guys.
I haven’t had a chance to review Bantam Clothing yet. When I do get my hands on some samples, I’ll update this page.

Founded in Southern California way back in 1975, Jimmy Au’s is a brick and mortar clothing store specializing in clothing for shorter men.
Run by father-son duo, Jimmy and Alan, this shop has served many Hollywood celebrities over the years.
I had the chance to visit Jimmy Au’s a while back, and it’s a pretty amazing experience. If you’re in SoCal, make time to swing by and say hi to Jimmy!
ASKET makes minimalist, high quality clothing staples for men, and they offer shorter length versions of all of their shirts and outerwear.
This means that you can order a Medium/Short or a Small/Regular t-shirt, for example.
Like Everlane, ASKET also prioritizes ethical business practices and radical transparency. So it’s a brand you can feel good about supporting.

Right now, Buck Mason only offers shorter length tees. They don’t make button ups or outerwear for short guys.
But, since t-shirts are such an important staple in a man’s closet, I wanted to include Buck Mason on this list.
Also, Buck Mason makes high quality clothing, and I’m a big fan of their fabrics and color selection.
Their XS/Short t-shirts fit me perfectly. I prefer the straight hem, but they’re available with curved hems too.
Questions about Shorter Men Clothing
Here are answers to the most frequently asked questions about shorter guy clothing:
Do they make petite men’s clothing?
Can short men wear baggy clothes?
Short men can wear whatever kind of clothes they like. But, if your goal is to enhance your physique, fitted clothing will look better than baggy clothing.
What shirts should short guys wear?
Shorter men can wear any style of shirt. The key is to make sure your shirts aren’t too long. This means untucked shirts shouldn’t go past mid-fly, and your sleeves shouldn’t go past your wrist bone.
Where do short guys buy pants?
Shorter guys can buy pants from the shorter guy clothing brands listed on this page; most of them make pants with inseams down to 25 inches.
Or, shorter guys can buy pants from any menswear brand and get them hemmed at the tailor. You can also buy custom (or made-to-measure) pants online.
