Men who are shorter than the 5’ 8” cut off of standard sizing are out of luck when looking for clothes. But shorter men—often people of colour—actually make up about 33 per cent of the Canadian and American fashion markets. This panel will explore the social and economic implications of expanding the current menswear sizing system to include shorter men.
Confirmed panellists include Marilyn McNeil-Morin (Toronto Fashion Exchange director and an expert in apparel manufacturing and fit), Leah Morrigan (manager of model relations for Toronto Men’s Fashion Week and a men’s image expert for the Toronto Star), and John Fijen (managing director of American 3D body scanning and imaging company [TC]² Labs LLC).
