Fall Outfit Ideas
For Short Men

Taking a closer look at our newest arrivals in clothing for shorter guys and giving you outfit inspiration of how you can look your best layering crewneck sweatshirts, joggers, jeans, and more

 


When the weather begins to cool down, the pumpkin spice lattes are brewing on the coffee machine, and Thanksgiving is on the horizon, it's time to break out your favorite Fall pieces! It's a great time of year to start playing around with colors and styles that may stand out more from the crowd. As shorter guys, it's hard to find clothing that fits well and is affordable - but Under 510 has you covered.

We'll take a look at a few of our favorite styles for Fall that can hopefully give you some style inspiration. Some of those items include:

While you're taking notes, pay attention to a few keys to style that will help you look your best, like:

  • Layering
  • Fit
  • Inseam Length
  • Color Combinations

In this first look, we're pairing our French Terry Crewneck sweatshirt with a pair of Xavier Stretch Jeans. We hunted down the perfect terry fabric until we found one that was perfect for wear all year round. This one is made from a soft and resilient 100% cotton fabric that is cozy and breathable. The Xavier Jeans in raw wash are perfect for almost any occasion because the deep blue indigo color goes well with anything you throw on top.

The olive green color of this crewneck sweatshirt is also a staple for the Fall. Olive is a color that is out of the ordinary enough to get you noticed but it also isn't too flashy, If you're looking for a color to mix in to your wardrobe to break away from the grays, navies, and blacks, olive is a great choice. Our crewneck sweatshirts also are made for shorter men. That means they have shorter sleeves and a shorter overall length so it will look proportional on a short man.

Of course, our Xavier jeans are also offered in inseams starting at 26" so you can get the proper length for your body type. The fabric used in the Xavier is also super stretchy which means it's supremely comfortable and wearable. Our signature slim fit jeans is also perfect for shorter guys because it makes us look taller and leaner.

Here, Frankie is wearing a pair of our black Kingston jeans with a gray waffle knit henley. The Kingston jeans, especially in black, have become a fan favorite because they are easy to dress up and are extremely comfortable, due to the Xtreme Stretch denim fabric. We insist customers do a few squats in the Kingstons when they try them on in our showroom just to illustrate how stretchy they really are! Unlike typical jeans that have a heathered texture, the Kingston jeans have uniform color that makes them look a lot like chinos, which makes them easier to pair with dressier outfits.

Notice that Frankie is wearing a 26" inseam. That's because he prefers to go for a more modern, cropped look. This gives the illusion that he is actually taller especially compared to most shorter guys who usually wear inseams that are way too long. The shorter length jeans also allows him to show off his super clean sneakers! If you're looking to update your style, a great way to do it is by going for a shorter inseam.

The waffle henley is also a Fall staple because it has a wonderful texture that is breathable but also warm. That makes it suitable for wear all season long, when Fall temperatures can tend to be volatile!

Especially during these WFH days, joggers can be your most worn item in the Fall because you can lounge around in them with a t-shirt like shown here, or dress them up with a polo shirt or button down. Our Tyson Joggers are awesome because of the fabric and fit.

The Tyson Joggers are made from a lux-fleece that is super smooth and cozy on the inside, but have a slight sheen to them on the outside that gives them a bit more luster than your old sweatpants. You can easily wear them to the gym, but wear them to the bar just as well. They're available in two colors, black and gray and have two inseam options at 26" and 28". Plus the Tyson Joggers have a slim tapered fit that sits close to the body for a modern slimming look. Of course, joggers are also just great for chilling on a Sunday watching football and eating wings. Some details on the Tyson include zip pockets (to keep your valuables safe during a jog) and an elastic waistband and cuffs.

In these pictures, we're pairing the joggers with our henley t-shirt but when it gets colder, they'd look even better with a crewneck sweatshirt. Don't forget to pair them with your favorite pair of sneakers - the shorter length and cuff will allow you to show off your sneaker game!

Flannels aren't the only shirt you should be wearing during colder weather; an oxford button down shirt (OCBD for short) is one of the most popular shirting fabrics in menswear because it is strong and hardwearing. That makes it a great option heading into Fall, especially if you want to layer it with a sweater, sport coat, cardigan, or jacket.

Our Simon chinos got a full upgrade for Fall 2020 coming in 8 new colors that` are essential for this season. We have your classic navy, black, charcoal, but also added vino (wine), sand (khaki), camel, cloud (light gray), and espresso brown as shown here. The Simon chinos come in a classic brushed twill fabric that has some added stretch. They have a wonderful soft hand feel that feels broken in and comfortable right from the get-go. Additionally, they look great with almost anything you throw on top of them and any footwear you choose whether it be boots, sneakers, loafers, or dress shoes.

Our Simon chinos also come in inseams down to 25" inseams which make them the perfect chino for shorter guys. They also come in a slim tapered fit from the knee down which will help shorter guys look taller.

For those guys who live a more active lifestyle, this outfit is for you. Activewear and technical fabric has become super popular in the menswear world as of late. With current Covid 19 protocols and more guy working from home, men are opting for clothes that are increasingly comfortable. Not only that, but everyone seems to have been taking advantage of work from home schedules to start a workout regimen. Hence, stretch pants, hoodies, and joggers have become uniform for men, replacing traditional dress clothes.

In this look, we pair our Jon Performance pants with a Functional Fleece Hoodie. The Jon pants are an excellent choice for the guy who needs something that is on the dressier side and that puts comfort first. They are unbelievably comfortable and stretchy, yet retain a polished and refined look. You can wear these with dress shoes and a button down, or with sneakers and a sweatshirt.

The Functional Fleece Hoodie is designed to keep you warm during outdoor exercise but can easily be worn as a cozy zip up when you're taking it easy on the sofa.

In this look, we're highlighting the Simon Chinos in the most Fall-friendly color available - Camel. Reminiscent of the falling leaves, camel is a warm shade of brown that has become more and more popular as an alternative to khaki. They go with pretty much anything you throw on them and have enough pop to get you noticed.

The Camel and Charcoal Simon chinos are available in inseams starting at 25" for a limited time too which is great for the guys who are below 5'5" or wear their pants low. Shorter inseams are also great for guys who want to show of their sneakers or shoe game because it draws the eye down to the hem line of your silhouette.  

Here we paired them with one of our button down shirts in a blue gingham check. The shirt is cut perfectly for Chaim who is 5'3" and wears a size small. Notice how the shirt is slim but not too tight and the sleeves fit perfectly. The poplin we use is 100% cotton with a smooth finish. It works perfectly on its own or can be layered under a sweatshirt, sweater, or sportscoat.
