    Hey Dappered Crew! There's a new style article up on "Just A Hunk", the first in our series on men's jeans called "The Denim Chronicles". This one focuses on straight leg, slim fit, dark wash denim, but also outlines and differentiates between the different cuts/styles of denim and which work best of which body types and for which occasions. We also make recommendations for straight leg denim based on a variety of budgets. Check it out!

    The waxed canvas is a great look, nice way to stand out from all the leather racer jackets.

    that jacket looks awesome (in gray). Can't swing that kind of dough for one, though.

    I know a lot of you are fans of the Style Girlfriend website. I just posted a recent interview that I did with the site's author, Megan Collins, on the "Just A Hunk" website:

    I am a short guy too, but since my torso and legs are of average length, I can get away with most things.


    My real problem is that I like the things I shouldn't wear : pants in lighter colors with a darker jacket, checks/windowpane instead of stripes, cuffed pants (mostly in the summer with casual pants and it's technically rolled, I wouldn't wear cuffed suit pants), non-monochromatic looks.

    That's a good point Michael. While I'm a shorter guy, I have longer legs than torso, but I forget that's not always the case. My co-worker is the same as you, and I always feel bad for him when it comes to buying pants, as he always needs to have them hemmed. I'll definitely have to mention the "shorter shorts" thing to him; thanks!

    No problem, Jay... When it comes to shorts, I can RARELY find something I like. But I've had the best luck wearing shorts that are shorter than you would typically think to wear. Not obscene, mind you, just a couple inches above the knee more than most guys. Hard to do in the States, as everyone loves board shorts & cargos for some reason.


    See, I have really short legs. I have an average torso, but sometimes it looks like God just stuck my feet onto my legs forgetting my ankles. Elongating the torso for added height doesn't always work for me... I end up all out of proportion. So with shorter shorts, I get more leggy and better proportions overall.

    Michael, thanks for your feedback! And keep in mind that everything in that article are just suggestions, as Nicholas said. I'm a firm believer that rules are meant to be broken, and that what sounds good on paper doesn't always translate to reality or practicality. If you're happy with the way you look in short sleeves or shorts, by all means wear them! While I personally hate the way I look in shorts, I wear short-sleeved shirts all summer long, so I certainly don't follow my own guidelines

    Well - it's a suggestion. If you're going to wear short sleeves, consider the other guidelines like wearing solid colors or vertical stripes. But know that a lightweight long-sleeve shirt will be the best for lengthening lines. In the same way, a tall guy shouldn't wear pinstripes, but that doesn't mean *never* wear them. It's just something to consider.

    Great article for shorter guys (I'm 5'5"). But as much as I agree with what you wrote, I'm not sure I totally buy all of it. For instance, I wear t-shirts quite a bit. I live in Texas, and there's no way I'm going to wear a long-sleeve shirt in the middle of 115┬║ heat. And sometimes I'm not too concerned with looking short as I am with being comfortable. So, a t-shirt and jeans or shorts is just fine.


    But I do understand the importance of tailoring. My biggest problem is having multiple breaks on every single pair of pants I buy. I have a couple of exceptions, but those were happy accidents. I'm going to have to gather up my slacks and head down to the tailor soon.


    Another thing that is so frustrating is the shirt-buying process. As you said, it's impossible to find the perfect fit from a department store shirt. Everything that fits perfectly in the body is too short in the arms and vice versa.


    So overall, I'm glad you're bringing awareness to the plight of us shorties. Thanks!

    Thanks! A lot of my best friends are bigger dudes (they truly are more jolly) and I'm often the Laurel to their Hardy. While it would seem so, many of the things that work stylistically for short men also work for bigger guys. Mainly, it's because your main emphasis is in elongating the torso and drawing attention away from the midsection. I'll have this post, along with the tall gentlemen post, up over the next week or so.

    Great read. I look forward to the tall man post!


    I'm also interested in what tips you'll post for heavy guys. We all have a lot of friends in that camp, and I'm often unsure what to suggest when asked about what would work best for them.
