Ash & Erie: Apparel for Shorter Men

Finding the perfect apparel fit for shorter men isn’t always easy so it’s always great to come across a brand like Ash & Erie that is addressing this issue with their first class line up of clothes for shorter men. When you find clothes which are actually specifically made for men under 5’8″ you’ll not believe the difference that the fit makes to how you look and feel.

Ash & Erie strives to offer the absolute best fit for guys who are 5’8″ and under. Period. Their clothes, which have a particular emphasis on men’s button-down shirts, are designed with a contemporary fit, so if you are between sizes or typically wear traditional brands, they recommend ordering one size up. In order to achieve the perfect fit, Ash & Erie have looked at hundreds of small details in apparel design such as collar size, cuff width, armholes and tail drop to make sure their gear looks great for those shorter guys.
