Founded in 2013 in Brooklyn, New York, Peter Manning/PMNY is the premier fit-based fashion company, serving ‘not-so-tall’ men across the country and around the world. There are over 40 million men in the U.S. alone, who are average height or below.
We 'not-so-tall' guys have been overlooked by traditional brands, selling increasingly oversized clothes to an increasingly supersized population. But shirts shouldn’t hang to your knees, pants shouldn’t stack at your ankles, and jackets shouldn’t fit like tents. That's where we come in!
At Peter Manning, we focus more on providing high quality, proper-fitting pieces that are built to last, rather chasing trends or selling fast-fashion products that disintegrate after a season. Over the years, as our customer base has grown, so has our offering.
We now offer everything our guys need, from casual wear to formal, so they look sharp no matter the occasion. Based on our roots in Italy and in Brooklyn, we have created a style that we consider to be timeless and cool. Very little will ever go out of style, most everything can be easily mixed and matched, and we encourage layering.
As a result, we have built a business that is environmentally-friendly, limiting waste in an already over-saturated apparel market. We don’t contribute to landfills with end-of-season product, and our customers don’t either. We believe in a small and efficient wardrobe filled with a few quality pieces that all work well together.
The traditional Small/Medium/Large framework doesn’t work for our customers, so we created a proprietary size system, based on height, weight and body type.
Shorter guys require shorter arm and body length, but don’t necessarily have smaller chests, shoulders or necks. Many of our customers need L/XL/XXL sizing to accommodate these features, but then the shirts are gigantic, looking more like a dress than a shirt.
Shorter guys also need shorter inseam pants. Prior to our arrival, 30-inch inseams were the shortest available pants on the market. That is about the right length for a guy standing 5’9” tall (unless your mom’s a gazelle, and you have extra-long legs!). Given 5’9” is the average height in the U.S., what were the rest of us supposed to do?!
We offer pants starting at 25-inch inseams, so there’s no more stacking at the ankles and looking sad and baggy, and no more excessive crotch hang.
Finally, while we are a young, e-commerce business, we try to maintain some old-school values. First, we make a product the market actually needs, not adding to the endless choices already available for most consumer goods sold in the U.S. The world certainly doesn’t need another fashion company, but it does need this one!
Second, we shoot to provide thoughtful and personalized customer service (a real throwback). No distant call centers, no chat bots; we have a small team of associates answering the phone right here in our office, ready to help. Your order will be processed and shipped quickly, and for free! And lastly, we stand behind our products, with a 100% guarantee. We want to get it right.
But don’t just take our word for it, check out our reviews. We are proud to have so many happy and loyal customers. If you’re a ‘not-so-tall’ or ‘hard-to-fit’ guy, you no longer have to settle for less. Take a spin around our site and discover great fit!
Shopping in the store was so much fun when you could actually find your size!
Great quality clothing and super service. Only regret that I didn’t discovery PM sooner while wearing clothes that didn’t fit properly. Thank you.
It’s so nice to find a spot where I can get reliably fitting clothes for my body type. Thanks for making it so easy.
