In this video, I show you my entire outerwear collection, from the lightweight windbreaker to the heavy duty parka. People often ask me about the best outerwear for short men. It's hard to give a specific answer because shorter gents come in different shapes and sizes. But I'll show you what works for me and where I shop for outerwear.
In this video, I teach you five style principles you can use to make sure your clothes and accessories are working FOR you, not against you. Here are the five tips:
#1: Make sure your clothes fit
#2: Make sure your accessories are proportionate
#3: Don't cut yourself in half with contrast
#4: Wear small scale patterns
#5: Avoid low-rise pants
For some people, 8 jackets is super minimal. Others might think it's way too much outerwear for one man. But between these 8 pieces of outerwear, I'm covered for every type of weather and every occasion. You'll notice that I don't have a peacoat or a puffer jacket. Though these are super popular, I think it's hard to find pea coats and puffer jackets that look good on the shorter man. For that reason, I stick with alternatives like topcoats and parkas.
