Guys, if the last thing you need in your life is a big and tall store, then Peter Manning is here for you. The designer who makes clothing exclusively for men who are 5'8" and under is debuting a Fitting Salon in DUMBO at the end of this month, where customers can come in to figure out which size works best before placing an order through the e-commerce site.
"Creating this company has been a life long dream," Manning writes on his site, "ever since I was ten years old and wanted bell bottoms and my mother told me that by the time she shortened them they wouldn't be bell bottoms anymore!" Bonus points for all salon staff members being 5'8" and under as well.
