We're living in very exciting times when it comes to fashion for short men. In the last two years we've seen an explosion in fashion offerings from shirts, to pants with smaller inseams to even expertly designed handmade shoes of the highest quality. Most of these designers have been U.S. based however. Purple Hat Menswear, a startup based in the U.K. aims to help this market expand even further with clothing sizes centered around a 5'6 standard rather than the western world "standard" or 5'11 (quotes since the western world average is roughly 5'9).

The founder of Purple Hat Menswear formed the company in 2015 after being frustrated at the lack of options available to men of his 5'5 stocky build and being relegated to settling for XL sizes from premium brands. To address this, the company has created a new sizing chart which takes into account height, weight and body shape to deliver clothes that fit with perfect proportions. Say goodbye to excess fabric, sleeves that are too long and chest areas that are too baggy or too tight.

With a size standard that has been reduced to 5'6 from 5'11, a collar size skimmed down to 41", chest size brought down to 43" from the standard 45" and center back that has been decreased to 28 1/2" from 31", Purple Hat is serious about shirt design for the 1/3 of men who fall in the shorter than average range. Forget about items coming in just one size. Their sizing chart shows everything in their line from an XS to L available at Purple Hat adjusted measurements. Whether you are slim or portly, if you're under 5'8, you have real options!

By supporting these designers, they can expand their product range and give you even more options in the near future.
