Shorter Men’s Fashion

Shorter Men’s Fashion, Greg Glander’s “site measured for shorter men,” recently featured Astor & Black and the Bespoke Visualizer. Glander is a man on a mission–he aims to find the best resources for men who love to dress well, but often find themselves frustrated with the extra efforts required in finding clothing to fit them.

“The newest feature on their website,, allows you to fully customize your look with the suit. Once you have your measurements taken and you create your account, you log in and click on Bespoke Visualizer, and start putting together your suit with your specific tastes. One of the coolest things is you click on a graphic of your chosen fabric, and then see what the garment will actually look like, versus trying to visualize from a ‘swatch’.”

In the spirit of Shorter Men’s Fashion, we’d like to offer 5 ways for shorter men to look their best, the Astor & Black way.

1. Wear patterns that elongate your shape. Look for suits and shirts with a subtle pinstripe.

2. Opt for a 2 button jacket rather than a 3 button.

3. Wear a custom dress shirt with a white collar to draw attention toward your face.

4. Style yourself in monochromatic pieces. A solid colored suit will make you look longer and leaner than a sportcoat and pant, which can break up the lines of your body.

5. Above all, choose clothing that fits. An Astor & Black bespoke suit draws the attention to how good your clothing looks on you, not to your height.

If you’re a shorter man with great style, Astor & Black is the place for you. All of our fully canvassed garments are made exactly to your measurements and specifications. To schedule an appointment, please visit
