Off-the-rack fits

The Field Jacket Made for Shorter Guys


May 16, 2019 Briefings By

For shorter guys, finding well-fitting outwear can be difficult. Even if you can get something tailored, details like the pockets and collar heights will still be out of proportion. This common issue is the reason Peter Manning began designing clothing specifically for shorter guys. And back in 2014, the first piece of outerwear the brand took on was the Tribeca Field Jacket.

The Tribeca Field Jacket is a modern take on the classic field jacket design, and it comes in three colors: navy, olive and tan. It offers plenty of versatility that can be utilized in layering to make it a year-round favorite — it styles well with a t-shirt and jeans for those cool spring and summer evenings but can also be layered up for year-round use. Double button cuffs and interior drawstrings make the fit adjustable, and details like sleeve length, body length, collar size and pocket size are all perfectly proportioned to ensure it’s the right fit for the not-so-tall guy straight off the rack — no alteration required.
