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 review right here to see how it looks on me.
The botton line is, Ash & Erie is a great place to buy casual tops (button downs, t-shirts, polos) and bottoms (jeans, chinos) that fit well on shorter men.
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.
Peter Manning NYC
Founded in 2011 out of – you guessed it – NYC, Peter Manning makes classic American clothing for ‘not-so-tall’ guys.
Compared to Under 510 and Ash & Erie, Peter Manning targets a slightly more mature customer (this is reflected in their prices and aesthetic).
PMNYC carries a more complete catalogue than some of the newer brands on this list, including formalwear and a wide range of outerwear.
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 1982, Jimmy Au’s is a brick and mortar clothing store 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!
