At Ash & Anvil, we're reinventing menswear for guys 5’8” and under. We are the first company to design clothes specifically for younger, shorter guys.

There are currently no off-the-rack, everyday options for shorter guys. Some men will get lucky finding one-off items or shopping in the kid’s section, but most guys, to achieve the right fit, have to take every piece of clothing they buy to a tailor. This shopping experience is embarrassing, frustrating, and expensive.

Clothes from mainstream retailers do not work on shorter guys. To highlight the problem with traditional brands, look at 1:15 in this news segment video (bit.ly/1YRKyDm). You’ll see one of our customers wearing a Small Ralph Lauren button down on top of his Small Ash & Anvil Everyday Shirt. Designing shorter guy clothes isn’t as simple as shortening the length--every detail of the Ralph Lauren shirt does not fit well on a shorter guy.

Designing shorter guy clothes isn’t as simple as shortening the length--every detail of the Ralph Lauren shirt does not fit well on a shorter guy.

No major retailer offers clothes specifically for shorter guys even though there are more men 5’8” and under than petite women. One in three American men are 5’8” and under, representing 40 million guys our size. Shorter guys still have to buy clothes as often as everyone else and will spend over $20 billion each year on clothes that don’t even fit well.

Our first product line is the Everyday Shirt, a casual button-down meant to be worn at work, play, or wherever. Our shirts feature shorter sleeves and body lengths, a slim button-down collar, and appropriate chest and waist measurements among others features that complement guys 5’8” and under. Our unique sizing system guarantees the best possible off-the-rack fit for shorter guys.

Ash & Anvil intends to offer a full wardrobe of everyday clothing. While we started by focusing on casual button downs, we’re excited to design and develop jeans, chinos, shorts, sports apparel, and more in the coming months and years.
