Subtle slights

ray rice 2The following comment was made by the commentators during the first half of today’s Ravens vs. Patriots game.

Ray Rice is short but he’s not small.

Now I realize that the comment was meant as a compliment to Ray Rice, an outstanding and 5’8″ athlete but there is a subtle slight in suggesting that short would not normally be good.  Here at Shortees we contend that short is not just good, its great.  Yes while athletes overall are getting bigger and bigger we are also seeing an abundance of spectacular all stars who are 5’8″ and under.  Lionel Messi, Ray Rice, Darren Sproles, Maurice Jones-Drew and many more.

Get with it commentators.  Its time to stop thinking it is something special and unique for an athlete to be short and start putting everyone on an even level.


Hello 2013

It’s hard to believe that it is already 2013.  It’s hard to believe that the Shortees Style blog was set up just over a year ago and hasn’t been updated since last January.  As you can tell maintaining this blog has not been a priority over at Shortees.  That is about to change.  2013 is looking to be an exciting year for Shortees and part of that is a renewed focus on updating and maintaining our Facebook page and blog.

What should you expect to see from us over the next year?  Lots of things.  News and advice on topics that matter to today’s man including fashion, grooming, sports, women, dating, humor and our own brand of commentary on all of those topics and more.  Some of it will be specific to the 5’8″ and under man while much of it will appeal to anyone regardless of height.

What makes us different from the unending assortment of other options out there for readers?  We don’t cater to the lowest common denominator.  We enjoy a good fart joke, sexy women or epic fail as much as the next person and we celebrate all of them but we know you aspire to more than that.  At the same we understand that the majority of our customers and readers are not living on an unlimited budget.  You want to live and dress in a way that flatters you and is realistic for the reality of  your everyday, not in a costume, like a celebrity or if you stepped out of a period television show.  You appreciate trends and what is best about them without mindlessly chasing them.  While we represent a brand and every business consultant in the world will say that we want you to identify yourself by the Shortees brand we defy that approach.  We celebrate our individuality and support your search to define who you are.  We are here to help.  With great fitting clothes, usable advice, worthwhile reviews and good laugh (ok, the occasional hot chick as well).

With that we invite you to participate with us.  Send us your comments, thoughts, ideas, rants and whatever else crosses your mind.  We will do our best to visit the topics that matter most to you and extend the Shortees ideal of a better fitting shirt to a better fitting life.
