The best way to start shopping is by cracking open the yellow pages and calling various men’s clothing stores to ask what styles and sizes they carry. You should also ask the salesperson if they can make special orders for shorter men or if they offer custom-made clothing.
Finally, another way to land yourself smaller sizes is to order clothing from “short size” catalogs or try finding garments in the boys’ section of larger department stores.
Anything that elongates your height is a good thing. For example, vertical stripes in clothing can help extend the look of your shorter body. Patterns such as pinstripe, chalkstripe and herringbone also offer that “vertical” effect.
