Designer Label for Short Men

There are some things we never really think about.

Like where do short men shop? What do they wear?

Enter Jimmy Au, who created a line called For Men 5 ‘8″ and Under.

He was tapped to create the first ever extra short collections for Jack Victor, DKNY, Lauren by Ralph Lauren, CK by Calvin Klein, Sean John, and Michael byMichael Kors.

A more recent job would be his selection to wardrobe Olympic Gold Medalist, Scott Hamilton for the 2009 World Figure Skating Championships. Scott stands at just 5’2″.

The designer’s also copped notable mentions in The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Los Angeles Times and Men’s Vogue.

Apparently, Forbes listed Jimmy Au’s For Men 5’8″ and Under as one of their 2008 Top Ten Clothing Stores for Men.

Who knew?
