Traditionally, the word fashion is only applied to women. This is because the fashion industry focuses much of its attention to women's fashion and for good reason. Women are perceived to be the ?shoppers? of the world, and they are also perceived to be the ones who give a lot of thought to their clothing, making them the perfect market for fashion designers. On the other hand, men?s fashion do not get that much attention, because it is perceived that men do not put much though on the clothes they wear. However, this does not mean that men do not experience fashion problems that women experience, which include the difficulties that taller and shorter men experience in looking for good fitting clothes.
For shorter and taller men, the main problem is to find good fitting clothes because most of the clothes that are available in the market cater to the ?average? body size of men. Given this difficulty, the only option for some of these men is to have custom made clothes from tailors, which can be very expensive. For short men, a very good source for good fitting clothes are specialty stores on the Internet that cater to the body types of shorter men. One good example of this kind of store online is Short Sizes, Inc., which specializes in clothes designed for shorter men since the 1970?s.
For taller men, the same problem applies, because they also experience problems in finding good fitting clothes. Fortunately, the Internet is also a good source of good retail stores that sell clothes that are designed for taller men. One of the better sites that sell these clothes is King Size Direct, which not only offer clothes for tall men but for big men as well.
Men also experience some of the same fashion problems that women go through, especially for taller and shorter men. This is because just like short or tall women, short and tall men also find it difficult to find good fitting clothes. Fortunately, in the same way that there are a number of sources of clothes that cater to short and tall women, the same also goes for men, a good example of which is the Internet.
