Big thanks for Stantt for sponsoring this video!
Stantt is a menswear brand that's trying to bridge the gap between off the rack and made-to-measure (or custom). They're doing this by making shirts that come in 70+ sizes. Most men should be able to find a Stantt size that fits their body type using Stantt's size finder tool (based on chest, waist and sleeve length).
I originally reviewed Stantt shirts back in 2015. While the shirt I trid fit better than most off the rack shirts, it wasn't quite a good as one of my custom dress shirts. Since then, Stantt (whose name stands for "constant improvement") has refined their sizing system and added a few new sizes that better fit the shorter body type.
The shirt they sent over for this review (size "Aaron") fits me really well. They even hemmed the length of the shirt by a couple of inches so I could wear it untucked - a service they will do for you too!
If you're frustrated by not being able to find button up shirts that fit well off the rack, and buying made-to-measure shirts isn't the best choice for you (maybe it's too expensive or time-consuming), I highly recommend giving Stantt a try.

Hi ,Brook,ID like make a vídeo with other youtuber,Lorenz Wiedemann,i think You And him have a body type simmilar,the same height,Lorenz have the height standar in latín América,And You are short men in the american Middle standard height,both could help us,thanks a lot.
+Duy Quan how do know the other brands are better and higher quality if you haven't tried both? I haven't either, so I can't say one way or another. All I know is Stantt is one of the only brands that fits me off the rack, and that's worth a premium (to me).
Okay, even if you get tailor done. That's still the same price for a higher quality shirt. Twill and Spier (prices are in CAD so it's even cheaper) are also very slim and have many neck sizes. The neck sizes also correspond to sleeve length. I am 170 cm and both Brand at 14.5 fit me perfectly.
All I am saying is that Stantt is charging a very premium price for their shirt. I personally don't think it's worth it because they are better brands out there. You should try Spier out they also have MTM for 79 CAD.
It would be nice if they made proportionally smaller cuffs. Every store I shop at has the same size cuffs on x-small shirts as they do on x-large shirts, which doesn't make a lot of sense. It just makes our arms look even shorter.
Glad I found your channel Brock - keep up the good work. I'm wondering if you could help me out?
I'm a short but pretty muscular guy looking to start dressing a bit nicer, but I've had a problem. Pants that fit my waist often don't fit my thighs. Do you know of any brands I should steer toward that are just a little roomier in the legs without being huge in the waist and seat?
Personally I gave up on custom shirts a long time ago and too often settle for the thing I dislike the most. A collar that is meant for a taller man but put on a shirt supposedly my size. Not to mention the length that makes having an untucked shirt difficult. Thanks for the video on this brand and I'll definitely check the website out.
Amazing video Brock!! I'm very grateful that you are bringing to attention the companies trying to fill the market of the short man!! Love it!! What is the cost of these shirts? I also need to ask.. I love to tuck in my shirts, so can you have them tailor it to be a bit longer to tuck in and still make them fit correctly? Again Brock a Big Thank You!!
Yup, without any extra tailoring, their shirts come about two inches longer than the one I'm wearing in the video. If you're around my height and plan on wearing it ONLY tucked in, I probably wouldn't have it altered. If you wanted a hybrid shirt, maybe have them shorten it 1-1.5".
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
