A solution for shorter dudes


Courtesy of The Love Ship

Our latest find: Short Shrifted, an excellent blog tailor–made for men "anywhere south of 5–foot–9" on the hunt for stylish clothing that actually fits. Blogger Josh Rogers founded the web site in 2007 as a way to vent his frustrations about how difficult it was to find a well–fitting suit for his wedding. Since there was a lack of helpful information online, Josh decided to create Short Shrifted as a resource of clothing, styles, stores, tailors, and advice for shorter men. The site addresses fashion frustrations applicable to a groom shopping for his wedding–day attire, such as whether a "one–size–fits–all" tie actually fits properly, the best shoe styles, and tips and tricks on making an oversized garment work. Josh's advice for shorter grooms: Skip the exasperating hunt for an off–the–rack suit or tuxedo and splurge for custom made. —Christine Barcellona, Editorial Intern, Brides.com
