Men of Stature: Lelisa Desisa

Ethiopian runner Lelisa Desisa (Le-LEE-Sa DEE-See-Sa), 5’7″, took home his second Boston Marathon win on Monday in wet and cold conditions in 2:09:17, which is, yes, running the entire 26.2 miles at about a 5-minute mile clip. In 2013, his previous Boston win, Lelisa donated his medal to the bombing victims. “Sport holds the power to unify and connect people... Continue Reading →

In Good company: Mark Wahlberg

There aren’t many people who can transition from the rough streets of Boston’s South End and young life as a criminal, and go onto success in a music and modeling career and then become a major Hollywood star, producer, business man, and family man.  Mark Wahlberg (5'7") has managed to do it with honesty and self-awareness, hard work and talent....

In Good Company: Jon Stewart

In Good Company is a series where we highlight accomplished “not so tall” men. One of our favorites is Jon Stewart (5’7″). We think he’s smart, funny and, frankly, one of the most important “not so tall” guys around, irrespective of his political leanings! We are devastated to hear that he is leaving his show after so many years of hilariously... Continue Reading →

How it all started... with the Dress Shirt

One of the things that got me into the business of dressing “not so tall” guys was my last trip to the tailor some years ago now. I brought a shirt to be altered and the tailor said, “This is crazy, by the time I fix up this shirt correctly it will cost you more than the shirt!”   He... Continue Reading →

Why classic American clothes will always be in style

Fortunately, men’s style doesn’t fluctuate much.  That's good news for all of us, because it makes getting dressed each day a lot easier.  I purposely started Peter Manning NYC with a foundation of basics: jeans, chinos, button-down shirts—all based on a traditional American style that was born in the 1950s, with icons like James Dean, Paul Newman and Steve McQueen. ...

Are your pants too long?

Every day I walk the streets of New York and am able to observe one of the biggest cross sections of humanity in the world. Of course, what obsesses me most is when I see my fellow “not so tall” guys with pants that are too long. I feel like shouting "you are not a 30-inch inseam!" The truth is,... Continue Reading →

Why I love corduroys

What is it about corduroy pants? They are my favorite pant and always have been. When production samples arrived at our studio last month, I knew we had succeeded in developing a great pair of cords. Maybe it’s that cords remind me of when I was a kid, when I would wear my favorite pair until you could almost see... Continue Reading →

Staff picks for holiday gifts

We have some serious audiophiles in the office and they love Bowers and Wilkins. Their P3 headphones not only have proven sound quality, they have a stylish yet understated look (available in various colors) and are immensely portable. The P3 ear pads are made from memory foam that gently molds to the shape of your ears, which increases both comfort... Continue Reading →

Care for your beard with Beardbrand

With great causes like Movember and No-Shave November in full swing, we can’t help but think of ways to tame and groom those mustaches and beards that are popping up everywhere. Zachary in our office has a beard (it’s quite dashing) and he has become quite taken with Beardbrand, a purveyor of all things needed to have a great bearded life.... Continue Reading →

Dressing for the holidays

With the holidays fast approaching, it seems a good time to think about what we can do to spruce up our wardrobes, look great and be festive. As always, fit matters. Shorter inseams, shorter sleeves, tapered legs—proper proportions in general—make you look and feel great. However, often the holidays require a bit more from us. What then? How can we...

Finally, a winter boot that is just enough

I always think about new winter boots in January when I am stepping into a slush puddle in my Clark desert shoes.  By then it is too late.  Everything is sold out and I keep telling myself it's almost over.   This has been going on for years. It’s also that winter boots tend to be too darn big.  I... Continue Reading →
